yngwie (16315) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 25, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 Bottle. Dark/red brown color with small tan head. Candi-sugar and sweet fruits in aroma. Quite sweet and light alcoholic taste. Aftertaste is much the same, and bitterness is almost non-present in this beer. Not my favourite trappist-beer. Thx to KØLF. (050923)

harrisoni (16728) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2005
Bottle. Reddish brown, thin beige head. Nice choccy malt with some plummy fruit. Some sweetness in mouth, then more fruit and choc towards the end with nice hoppy finish which is very dry. Nice brown beer, although not as complex as the best ones

krja (1) - Sint-Truiden, BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2005 does not count
Reddish brown colour. Aroma: dark fruits, candied sugars and sweet carame. Very good brown beer, but the least of the Trappist Ales

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2005 Served in Achel glass. The aroma was delicious and reminded me of (don’t aske me why) Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Ale. Sort of sweet and fruity w/ the complexity of the sea, hehe. However, appearance, I can’t completely recall, quite "standard" I think.’ Flavor reminds me of Orval, sour and flat, even though I prefer this one to Orval.

andershn (90) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2005
A reddish-brown, slightly hazy beer with a stable, tan head indicating much carbonation. Lightly fresh aroma with licorice and citrus oil. Complex flavour with a bit of lemon, licorice. Excellent beer.

Sten (726) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2005
Brown with a decent tan head. A good aroma of malts and hops. The taste has a hoppy undertone that is overwhelmed by dry malt and some chocolate. Full body. (Bottle 33cl)

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Had this at the Steelgaarden in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The Steelgaarden is below the Bethlehem Brew Works Brewery & Restaurant and boasts over 100 Belgian ales. So, I just had to pay a visit. Unfortunately, I was already a few in, having sampled the five beers currently being brewed. But I decided to end my evening with something a little sweet. I was not disappointed. There was that candy-sugar sweetness coming out. The hops were all but non-existent. Tasted apply sweet with a dry, raisiny finish. Excellent for sipping and listening in at the bar as college coeds ordered Miller Lite (which was not available). Not as complex as some other Trappist ales but pleasing nonetheless.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2005
Brown colour with a reddish hue, and a medium rocky head. Caramel malty aroma, dark fruit, coffee, some hidden hops and yeast, obvious alcohol. Smooth medium body, a malty taste with a complex sweet touch. Quite special, in the positive way.
