   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Deep red-brown body, medium creamy, clumping light tan head. Heavy toffee, candied fruits, spice, breads, and caramel dominate the aroma. Yeast esters in abundance. Heavy esters in the flavor, toasty, and sweet with dark fruits, carameled breads, and hints of red wine. Both sweet and dry. Alcohol warms the palate a bit. Long, smooth, relatively soft yet slightly bitter finish. Tasty, but not one of the best.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Light brown/amberish color,large off white head that had a good hang time then faded to leave a nice lace behind.The aroma was malty and mildly fruity with a bit of some caramel in there as well.The flavor was very nice,malty and yeasty with a nice fruity presence some caramel notes and over all just a smooth brew with just a hint of alcohol in the end.The hops come through nicely rounding out the whole brew and making it quite quaffable on a cold night.

DocLock (8346) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Turbid brown pour with 2-finger off-white, "snow blanket" head. The aroma was of dark fruit, malt, brown sugar, and some cabernet and funk notes. Tastes malty, with some brown sugary and fruity notes and spices. This one is very Rocheforty, with a complex, well balanced palate.

thebeertourist (5046) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2005
Red-brown colour with a big, lacing beige head. Aroma is full of caramel and liquorice as well as yeasty spiciness. Caramel, liquorice and bready flavours are balanced by good bitterness, and the initial sweetness develops towards a dry finish. Medium to full bodied, well carbonated.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 15, 2005
Light brown colour, average and diminishing head. very fruity taste, some banana? Full body herby with some bitter finish. A very enjoyable Trappist beer.

tiggmtl (4547) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2005
This offers up dubbel-like bubblegum esters, some chalky roastiness, orange and apple fruitiness and strong maltiness. Opaque, muddy brown body is topped by a fizzy, fine bubbled, off white head that recedes very slowly and coats the sides of the glass. Sweet maltiness in the flavour is tempered by fair bitterness with orange citrus, molasses and bubblegum notes. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Tulip glass. Allowed to warm from fridge temperature. Bottle (trade, Dec-04). Thanks, Kawa (Walt)!

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Pours a fairly light brown for the style with a massive and rocky tan head that is currently taking forever to settle down. Very bubbly. I’ll be back in a few minutes after I wait for the head to settle....... Aroma is molasses and orange peel with a hint of apple. The molasses smell is not prevalent in the actual flavor. Nice and citrusy with some cedar notes. Tangy and delicious. Not incredibly complex but easily drinkable. Definitely worth trying but the cost of this stuff can be awful steep.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2005
BB 9/05. Dark brown, slightly red color, medium light brown head. Cloudy appearance. Mild chocolate, sweetness, mild alcohol and citrus in aroma. Also some vinous tones. Pouring carbonation. Crispy bite from hops and carbonation, medium alcohol in aftertaste. Medium to full bodied. Flavor has sweetness, spices and orange, ends with dry alcohol bite and some yeast. Too pouring carbonation, still excellent brew.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
kramer (5330) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2005
12 oz bottle. Mahogany in color, with off white 1" head, good amount of carbonation that leads to a very creamy head. Nose is heavy on Belgian candi sugar, with caramel and yeast as well. Slightly acidic with notes of apples and pears. Flavor is malt dominated, yeasty, fruity, and some toffee. Finish is dusty with some alcohol at the end. Medium bodied, but fizzy carbonation detracts from the inherant creamyness. Not bad overall, but nothing strikes me as amazing. My least favorite of all the Trappists.

xray (50) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2005
22SEP05 Bottle bought at New Beer Distributors. Reddish-brown with a thick off white head that lasts. Lots of sediment. Spicy and slightly sweet aroma. Weak raisin taste. Slight spice after taste. Not a lot going on here for a Trappist.
