Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2004
33cl. Bottle. Poured a dissipating white head. The aroma is fantastic, lots of complexity; rich fruits and malt. The flavor is rich and full as well, starts sweet but finishes dry. A good balance of flavors. Hardly notice the alcohol. Tasty stuff…

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2004
33 cl. bottle. Served in Westmalle chalice. Opaque dark reddish-brown. Wonderful warmth and malty fullness in the taste. Pleasantly rounded. Soft mouthfeel. Nicely assertive.

zborgerd (187) - Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Head is fizzy and only lasts a few seconds. Highly carbonated, dark brown, murky, with lots of floating yeast (indicative of a good beer, in my opinion). Flavor is bold and chocolatey... With raisins and bread-dough. A little peppery too. Highly spiced. Not too sweet. Heavy carbonation and a mild bite in the finish. Alcohol is well-masked. Definately a step up above something like Chimay rouge, especially because these brewers took it easy on the clove.

JCW (1277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Brown, opaque, pours with a large tan head. Aroma of brown candi sugar,yeast. slightly fruity like figs. Creamy body. Sweet finish. Good beer.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2004
Bottled, had at the Dovetail, London.
Crimson cherry-wood colour with a dense fine beige head. Dry malty base. Moderate bitter finish but complexity that I was either unable or uninspired to described.

rlgk (15798) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2004
Dark amber, small offwhite head. Mild aroma from tar and coffee, with some malts. Flavor is coffee with some licorice and tar. Bitter sourish finish, and not compareable to the great trappists.

mkato (18) - USA - JUN 13, 2004
Pours a nice beutiful amber. Great fruity taste. My only gripe is it is just a little two overcabornated for my taste. Seems to get in the way of the great taste.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Pours dark amber/brown with a nice head. Aroma is malty (prunes, raisins) yeast and spice. Flavor starts sweet with nice dried fig, orange, cherry and yeast flavors. Finish is dry, salty with a hint of spice and anise. Mouthfeel is full an oily without over carbonation. Nice alcohol warmth. An excellent beer, but not up to Chimay blue or Rochefort.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2004
Bottle pours a deep amber with a monster tan head and very good lace. The aroma is yeasty and malty. The flavor has a sweet chocolate and vanilla thing, with a bit of a hop finish. The palate is somewhat refreshing. Overall, it does not stand out as being very special, but it works.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2004
Tasted in Toronto. Tasted at Cafe Volo. Tasted in Achel trappist glass. Appearance is dark brown, somewhat cloudy with chunks of sediment in suspension. Aroma is difficult to pick up - very subtle hints of caramel, sugar and vanilla. Picking up the same elements in the flavour as found in the aroma - slightly sweet, muted caramel / vanilla but relatively muted and subdued for a beer of this style.
