3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl. bottle. The head is nice and lasting, and the lace is thick and does not disappear. The color is mahogany and the aroma has notes of plum, hops and a bit of alcohol. The mouthfeel is oily and prickly. The flavour is sweetish and has a lot of notes like plum, roasted malt, candy sugar, toffee and sweet licorice. There is a light, but delicate bitterness in the entire finish that gives a suitable counterweight to the sweet impression. Alcohol turns up in the end, but not in a disturbing way. I think this beer should not be warmer as 15 degrees Celcius, otherwise it loose some of it’s magic.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hazy dark brown ale with a thick receding light moka head. A pleasant aroma of sweet dark fruits and raisins. In mouth, a sweet candy sugar with light orange peels, cherry, apples, light brown sugar. Some warming alcohol in finale. Sweetness comes out much better with an old cheddar. A classic. BB 12-2004.
