Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Light spicy aroma. Clear dark copper color. Flavor is tart and spicy, well attenuated. Decent but not quite as good as I'd hoped.

madsberg (10602) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2003
Bottled: Ruby coloured. Light dusty. Huge beige head. Malt, sweets, spices, fruit and some alcahol in the aroma. Loads of alcahol, malts, sweets and some vague fruit notes in the flavour. Alcahol burnt on the palate. I miss something in the owerall impression. Dosn't seem as wellbalanced as other trappist beers.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Rocky, brown head. Yeasty, vinous aroma. Deep mahogoney brown. A bit nutty, pretty good.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 14, 2003
Murky brown color with a thick lacing off-white head. Sweet caramel bready Belgian malt and yeast aroma. Sweet toffee, honey and mild chocolate notes are evident with light fruit complexity and a hint of yeasty spice toward the end. Finishes dry, somewhat sticky and warming. A nice trappist ale.

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Malty banana bread of incredible quality. Tasted as if some world-class chef slaved over it for a day or so. Luscious vanilla, toasted walnuts and a light molasses swirl. Finished with a bit of orange juice and raisins. Rich, chewy, decadent.

Darkover (1524) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Cloudy dark amber/brown color with a big thick beige head. Aroma is sweet, candy, yeast. Flavor is sweet, dark fruits, a little sour and bitter too.

beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2003
This is a good Belgian Stromg Ale. Sweet, malty, and fruity flavor. Finishes smooth, cramy, and clean.

biermonk (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 22, 2003
Reddish brown in colour almost a deep copper. Head was rather quick to leave but I found that it did leave some nice lacing on the glass. The nose was rather different in comparison with the other Belgian strongs that I have experienced rather yeasty but with a nice floral kick. carbonation was perfect gave a nice feel on the tongue. Some bready flavors with some darker fruits and malts. I dug this beer but there are definitely better trappist offerings.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 19, 2003
Light brown color with a layer of head on the top of the liquid until the end. Lacing creeps up the glass in places so pretty much stays until the end. The aroma was initially to me very hoppy compared to some other belgians I'd tasted before this. It evolved into a slight mixture of yeast and hops as I drank it. The flavor is an excellent balance of sweet and bitter with a bready mouthfeel and alcohol kick in the end. This was interesting as it has more hops than any other trappist beer that I've had before.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 19, 2003
Pours amber-orange with a fair head that dissapates quickly into a little lacing. Aroma is a bit odd; a bit musky, and a bit more hoppy than some Belgian strongs I've had. The fruits are apparent in the aroma as well, some being apricot and a bit of plum as well. Kind of odd as I'm getting more hops than malt. The Belgian characteristics are there as well, I'm getting a bit of fruit (plums and apricots again.) The whole expierence was strange, as I thought of this as a Belgiany Pale ale. I don't know. I'm done.
