puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Lots of crap floating in this one. Poured with nice gradient from light to dark brown with more floaties than I’ve ever seen before. Aroma almost purely fruity esters (grape, apple, plum, cherry), with a little caramel and chocolate thrown in there. Palate is unfortunately way too lively and masks what I think would be more refined flavors in the brew. I get a little cinnamon and nutmeg, coriander, warming phenols and an unpleasant, metallic twang.

Dark amber, cloudy, brown foam. Fantastic trappiste. Very easy, very simple to taste..but very good!

steview (1037) - Petaluma, California, USA - DEC 21, 2005
near, nearly syrupy pour, lots of floaties, muddy amber-brown body with an average offwhite head; gooey, cinnamon and brown sugar buttered biscuits, fig, chocolate, caramel, yeastiness; full and round, rich, and a bit chewy; dry, bittersweet end; hard to detect much of its abv--dessert beer, definitely... or an appetizer!

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2005
Medium dark brown body with reddish shine, nice offwhite head. Yeasty aroma with fudge, nuts and spices. Sweet inital taste with caramel, fudge, a touch of dark fruit, developing into a nice chewy bitter finish. Very good brew.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2005
Dark orange-brown beer, slightly cloudy with a huge off-white head. I noted yeast and malt in the aroma. Plenty of alcohol in the taste. Lots of caramel sweetness and gentle orange marmalade bitterness.

Silphium (3191) - 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 (9999) - 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 (5187) - 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.
