ForlornHope (98) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2014
Aroma is of fruit, malt and burnt sugar. 33 cl bottle pours with a huge head which settles nicely. Red-brown in colour. Taste is fruit, malt and sugary sweetness, with a bitterness coming through. Full bodied with a rich almost sticky texture. Average carbonation and a bitter finish with some warming alcohol. Overall a great beer, and despite it’s strength, one that can easily lead to another.

"mostly caramel and a lot of dark fruit greet your nose. a little extra sweet in the flavor, though it finishes dry and spicy. Liked this just a touch better than the Extra (which I think was the more expensive by far). A little prickly, but not overly so. Nice lingering candy sugar/spice finish."

seynie (185) - Tienen, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2014
Chestnut brown with a grey brown medium top that lingers. Some plum, leather, candi sugar, malt. Not as complex as other trappist beers, more closed. Medium finish, dry nut at first, then sweeter

Bottiglia, colore marrone scuro con una schiuma fine e persistente. Al naso è dolce con note di caramello e frutta candita, anche in bocca molto dolce con malto tostato, caramello e frutta candita. Ottima

Heb er mij al een paar keer aan gewaagd op een terras. Moet zeggen dat het bier mij niet echt kan bekoren. De andere trappisten zijn imo veel uitdagender en bieden een veel gevarieerder smakenpalet. Deze achel kan zeker niet typen aan de smaakbommen die monumenten zoals de rochefort X en de westvleteren XII leveren.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2014 Bottle in Bari (IT) at a Belgian Beer cafe on Piazza Mercanti. Suprised by the number of pubs that sell Belgian beers, later I’ve been told that they are considered exclusive (and therefore popular) at the moment. Dark amber color with a frothy, lasting foam head. Aromas are copper, raisins, chocolate, soapy yeast smell. Lovely balance. Taste starts particularly sweet. Copper, gentle chocolate/cacao sweetness. A little creamy, which I like (perfect amount). Small boozy touch. Nice evolution towards an agreeable sour/bitter aftertaste. Only small remark I have is with the carbonation (quite low). Apart from that: winner. Additionally: good beer for tasting, but also good for drinking (2 or 3 without saturation of the taste).

Bottle - pours amber with thick head. Nose of yeast and dirty socks. Taste is initially pleasant malt, sweet syrup. Finishes with metallic dryness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle. Amber brown color with lots of fluffy head. Aroma is candi sugar, light plum, and sweet yeast. Taste is pitted fruit, light hop, slightly tart yeast, and lollipop. Effervescent mouthfeel and balanced flavor. Lingering sweet aftertaste.
