aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Candy sugar and bready malt nose with a touch of spice and light fruit slight grapey and toasted. touches of wood an leather but very little overall complexity nice beer for a young brewery. since 1999. the young trappist.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Aroma of dark toast, dried cherries, dark caramel, and toffee. Cloudy ruby brown color, thin off-white head. Flavor is slightly sweet and spicy, plenty of caramel and toffee, add in some clove and allspice, and a little dry fruit. Medium body, moderate carbonation. I would classify this as a dubbel rather than a strong ale, as it has all the malt and spiciness, but lacks the complexity from alcohol that stronger ales possess. Very nice.

brewbandit (312) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Brown body with reddish tint. Strong initial head which quickly subsides. Evident spice and faint fruit. Very malty beginning but finishes light and more balanced. Ok, but a solid rebuy!

Jan Primus (160) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2005
Nice rich burgandy/brown colour. Big fizzy head mellows to lasting small head. Taste is kinda sour, malty and a touch of cherry. A bit light in body for the style. Not bad, but regret buying the two-four.

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 29, 2005
Muddy color with a thin white film for a head. The aroma is very mild with no one scent really jumping out. Obviously plenty of malt with a little spice. Mouthfeel is smooth and rich with again, no one flavor standing out. Earthy is a good word to describe this beer. Very nice and easyto drink. Jjust not a show stopper.

bogdi1 (32) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2005
Dark amber colored with a nice thick head. Fruity, earthy and yeasty aroma. Complex and strong malty flavor dominated by earthy fruits and spices. A balanced beer and one of the better trappists.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Pours with a deep amber-brown body topped by a very thick head with some lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and malty yet slightly sour with an underlying bitterness and a touch of spice. The flavor is slightly sweet and malty with notes of spice and a slight bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth, slightly warming and a touch dry.

Mathis (48) - KBH K, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2005
Dark red-brown beer with a sweet, but not that strong aroma. A sweet and harmonic flavor with hints of malt and nuts. Good beer, but not very unique! Just another belgian strong ale!

Sigmund (4933) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2005
330ml bottle, bought at Borough Market, London. Pours with a large light tan head, colour is brown, slightly hazy. Excellent aroma: Oak, sandalwood, camphor, caramel, toffee, spices. Flavour has caramel, spices, oak - but is not quite as complex as I hoped. Still very good - it’s a Trappist! Moderate but decent hops + spices in the finish.

bluevegie (3049) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2005
Amber/brown body with a light tan head. Nice spicey malty aroma. Taste is fairly smooth, alcohol is very agreeable, nutty, apricot and also some cocoa. Well balanced. Quite enjoyable.
