[6832-20141005] Bottle. Malty toasted caramel aroma. Hazy, dark red amber body with a big long-lasting foamy light tan head. Toasted malt grain burlap and boozy barrel notes in the flavour. Medium-full body. Good. (7/3/7-/3/13) 3.3
Overheard: "It’s a cruel old world and none of us are getting out alive."

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

venom666 (499) - Elche, SPAIN - DEC 24, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Very dubbel looking, murky brown color with reddish notes and a great beige foam. Aroma is spicy and floral, with coriander, but also has some dark fruits, plum and overriped banana and apple. Taste follows the aroma, very sweet in all the aspects, with spices and overriped fruits, also some caramel and barely malty presence. Alcohol is well integrated. Slightly tartness on the aftertaste.

migwell (82) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Well, I wouldn’t kick it out of bed, but it’s not one of my favorite Trappistes. Arrived home after a long ride on my bicycle across the Connecticut River to Amherst to buy this, a bottle of La Trappe and a 4 pack of Duvel, only to have the Achel foam over wildly on opening. Cripes, and at these prices! This makes 8 out of the 10 Trappistes sampled, and the La Trappe will make 9, although I haven’t had all the various types from each monastery yet. I had the Chimays, Rochefort and Orval on a previous bike tour through Belgium, and the former 2 are still my faves. Darkly fruity, almost woody, a bit of a raisiny flavor. Poured very slowly into a standard Belgian ale glass, this dubbel hides its alcohol content admirably, like moet of the subtle Trappistes.

Barreras (1164) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Pours a deep brown color with a strong alcohol malt aroma. Taste is of hay and caramel with a syrup flavor. A mild sweetness, taste like caramel. The alcohol content is hidden well allowing this beer to be easy drinking.

cattaneopapa (220) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Reviewed from older notes found on a Biermarkt coaster:) Aroma of caramel and hops. Appearance: Deep amber in colour with 2 finger of white head. Taste: Traditional belgian malt and yeast with a hoppy finish. Light body and oily on the palate. Nice lacing with an excellent head retention.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2015 33cl flesje bij Kaffee Naovenant, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 8% Uitgeschonken in blanco bokaal Uiterlijk: roodbruin met mooie volle schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: kandijsuiker, caramel, donker fruit, Belgisch gist, zoet Conclusie: bekende trappist, de extra variant is nog lekkerder
