Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2003
This beer poured a very cloudy dark brown with some sediment present. It formed a nice off white bubbly head that left circular lace. Some carbonation is present. An aroma of malt, caramel and a touch of cherry. A flavor of malt and caramel. The finish was a touch astrigent with a bit of sweetness to it. Overall I am not as big on dubbels as other styles of Belgians. But all in all, this is another nice beer from this brewer.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2005 Medium beige head. Dark brown colour. Aroma is very nice; malt, raisins, vinous, fruits (apple, berries?). Very sweet taste with some spice.

bierkoning (10555) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2003
Orange and dark brown color with a frothy head. Chunks of yeast. Tropical fruit aroma and flavor, especially pineapple. Some late hopbitterness. Licorice. Hints of sourness. Well made beer, that lacks the complexity of many other trappist ales.

TheBeerGod (5337) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2005 Had this at ’t Brugs Beertje on 5-15-03. Dark brown with a strong tan head. Nose contains slight alcohol notes and spice. The tongue is full of malt sweetness with definite spice and alcohol evident. Also noticeable in the mouthfeel and aftertaste.

***Re-Rate Bottle. Pours a muddy brown with a foamy, but small tan head. Aroma is very sweet and fruity. Lots of cadny sugar, raisins, brown sugar, black cherries, light spice and hints of chocolate. Taste is very nice. Brown sugar, light cocoa, more raisins, light hints of prunes, candy sugar, and light alcohol. Body is very smooth and luscious with mild carbonation feel. Finishes with more dark fruit notes, light chocolate, candy sugar, light alcohol, hint of caramel, and light spice. Very good beer and an underrated Trappist!

Very smooth, fruity taste at first, some alcohol at the end. A decent beern but I wasn't that amazed

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.

2003-04-04, bottle, 8-5-9-4-17=43
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.

Jake Barnes (456) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 27, 2003
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.
