I drunk it on a rainy day in the abbey itself. But it was too cold and the beer too. It didn't give me a real kick. Surely i need to retry it.

Beautiful mahogany color with compact head. Mild aroma of malt and candi sugar. Good body, lean mouthfeel, still a bit too carbonated; good malt flavor, caramel, and a touch of honey; correct bitterness. A solid Trappist.

Dark amber, cloudy. Well malty, full bodied; very good example, probably surpasses a recent Chimay, and absolutely better than the Blond. Should improve with a (limited) aging.

Dark ruby with loads of sediment. Some great fruit esters in the nose. Touch of honey. Flavor: Starts out nice and fruity. Very smooth. Soft. Then there is this real astringent taste that kicks in. The alcohol shows through a bit much as well. Overall, the whole is less than the sum of its parts.

Cloudy dark brown. Nose is fruity with hints of raisin and a bit of alcohol in there towards the end of the sniff. Body is very fruity backed up by a big maltiess that comes across as bitter. A touch of hops towards the end, finishes complex and delicious.

AndersR (195) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2003
Oh joy! A classic trappiste beer with a taste to die for! Very clody brown looks, with a tan lasting head. Sweet bitter smell with hints of fruit. Taste of fruit, caramel, malts. Yeasty.

Nice looking head, cloudy brown Belgian. It had nice yeasty taste, quiet enjoyable brew. I liked how it was made.

I must be more drunk by this point because I didn't write much. Taste like nail polish remover. Gets more fruity as is sits.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2003
Opaque dark brown w/ some sediment. Lots of carbonation at first but head quickly settled down. Yeast (banana), malt (caramel), band-aid, dark fruit & alcohol in the nose. Full-bodied but lacking in smoothness. Flavour is malty (dark bread & caramel) w/ some fruit (dates, cherries) in the middle & a lot of alcohol in the finish. Not bad but flavour could blend better.
