Sweet spiced aroma. Body starts sweet and finishes slightly dry. An ok Belgian, but not a favorite.

Perfect beer. Great tasting. Murky in color. Very complex beer. Smooth in flavor with some fruitiness. This was very enjoyable.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2004
I am going to become a monk in a trappist brewery. Period. This is # 2 in a Trappist rating session (with Mkobes). Pours murky with a whole lot of floaties. Perfect head, retention, and lacing. Aroma is complex, with tartness, tobacco, mustiness, and stuff. Flavor is smooth, with lotsa malt, tobacco, fruitiness, and I have no idea what, but when I join one of these Trappist monestaries, I will know. This drinks perfectly, with no bite. As good as Westy 8 or Rochforte 6.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2004
33 cL bottle, snifter, 55 F. Caramel, light bread, biscuit malt (M); flowery hops (L); banana, clove, golden raisin, pineapple aromas; cobweb yeast (L). Tall, thick, creamy, white head is well lasting and sits on a murky brown-amber body. Heavily sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly bitter finish. Strong candi sugar presence. Medium-heavy body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: good, but it just never quite comes together.

obxdude10 (2102) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2004
Excellent Trappist beer, dark brown in color, fluffy off-white head that laced the glass throughout, malty, complex in the flavors, full in body, great balance, fruity in some parts of the flavor, great all-around!

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Murky brownish red body topped by a very nice light tan head that clings to the glass in large sheets. The aroma is dark fruit, plums and raisins. A sweet maltiness develops on further aromal inspection. Malty flavors dominate up front. The afterstaste has some sweet toffee and raisin. The body is smooth and silky with a dryish finish. A pretty good beer overall. Not quite as good as some of the other trappist brews but way above most other beers.

hopscotch (9954) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2004
Murky, deep ruby ale with tons of sediment and a creamy head. Good retention. Malty nose and flavor. Notes of dark, dried fruit, toffee, caramel and port. Full-bodied with a ceamy, alcoholic mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short dry, lightly salty finish. Very nice! Thanks to bierkonig for the bottle.

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2004 Russet brown colour. Creamy head and body. Fruity nose with some acidic tones. Sweet currants and raisins in the flavour, with some acidity. Dryish finish with less residual sweetness than some others in this style (which is fine by me) - still bittersweet though, with spicy hints. Very drinkable, but not exceptional - not enormously imposing. Bottled, Brugse Beertje, Bruges, September 2003.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JAN 11, 2004
A shade darker than amber. Light estery nose. Sweet grainy maltiness, some considerable residual sweetness. A bit sticky and jammy. Could use a bit more bitterness. Good mellow hop flavor comes on late (spalts?)
