SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2006
Explosive tan sponge of a head settles to form a foam volcano, complete with slopes and a circular caldera. Beneath the surface is a dangerous dark brown/ruby brew spotted with chunks of yeast. Alcohol and yeast in the nose. Candi sugar and dark fruits, also. Flavor adds some rich malt. Full, balanced body. I expexted more from achel. This is good, but too simple for a belgian strong.

Deep, deep brown. Notes of dried fruit on the aroma. Smooth, smooth silky smooth palate. Sweet malty tastes dancing a complex dance on my tougne.

bikesandbeers (547) - san diego, California, USA - FEB 16, 2006
deep amber/brown body with a sizable tan head. Fruity aroma, with a hint of alcohol. Falvor of sweet plums, quickly giving way to a slightly dry, bitter finish. Creamy body went down smooth, and left a great feeling in my mouth. Well the above description fits any number of belgian ales, this one seems to have a little something extra, and its not just the Trappist sticker. A real quality brew.

CEZ (405) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 10, 2006
Deep brown body, tall and lasting beige head. Smells of dark fruit and licorice; some alcohol is also perceived at first. Taste is sweet, with caramel, burnt sugar and raisins, balanced by a late bitterness. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

mbeem (104) - New Hope, Alabama, USA - FEB 8, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2006 Mmmm.. What a wonderful beer this is!! Pours a dark ruby / mahogany into the glass with a off-white head that dissipates rather quickly but clings to the glass throughout drinking producing a beautiful lacing down the glass. Aroma of fruits, mainly raisins and prunes but with a hint of apples. Malt and fruit in taste with a hint of alcohol (the alcohol is well concealed in this one). Must get some more of this!! Absolutely wonderful!!

thornecb (4822) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 4, 2006
Poured dark copper into snifter. Initial active carbonation quickly dissipates to cling to the rim. Raisins and date aromas. Very interesting body - light to medium to full. More raisins and dates to a long trappist malt finish. Quite nice.

RichardGretton (4420) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2006
Bottle. Cloudy off black beer with a strong head. The aroma is fermented fruit and the flavour is thick, fruity, dry, fizzy and slightly coffee. Overall a nice beer.

ezra456 (39) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 31, 2006
poured out a dark brown with a huge fuffy head, that stuck around for a while. nose consisted of prunes, yeast, and some alcohol. flavors consisted of bread, caramel, toffee, vanilla, and a finish of bananas and alcohol. a very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. an amazing brew. defenitely worth the 6 bucks i paid for it.

NosirIwont (2140) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2006
Bottle. Pours hazy amber brown with a slightly off-white head. Creamy, sweet and fruity aroma. Flavour is sweetish and fruity with notes of alcohol and faint notes apple in the finish. Not a lot of body, but it works anyway. Not a very complex beer, but pretty nice. 28-01-06.
