3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Pours a rich medium brown with a large beige head. Aroma is a bit dusty, with Belgian yeast, mild sugars, and mild dark fruit. A little cream too as it warms. Flavor is metallic overall, with underlying brown sugar, cream, egg whites, banana, yeast again. Pleasant flavor overall if you take the quarters out of the equation. I don’t know why its so metallic; maybe it was kept improperly before I assumed posession? Medum viscosity, pleasant carbonation on the tongue at the finish. Overall, good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tonaca di frate con riflessi dorati, velata dai lieviti, schiuma beige di buona persistenza.
Aroma di prugna, chiodi di garofano, frumento, leggero diacetile.
Al palato stesse componenti, zucchero di canna con finale prevalentemente erbaceo è un po' metallico.
Corpo medio-pieno, mediamente carbonata, bottiglia probabilmente non troppo in forma.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Brązowe piwo o obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w formie mgiełki na powierzchni. Aromat bardzo przyjemny, drewno, ciemne owoce, rodzynki. W smaku lekko słodkie, owocowe, lekko ziołowe. Goryczka średnia w stronę wysokiej, ziołowa. Ogólnie kolejne bardzo udane belgijskie piwo, bardzo ułożone, złożone, a jednocześnie stosunkowo pijalne.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy brown body with a good off-white foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty and plummy hints. Alcohol is subtle. Its robust malty/hoppy taste carries plummy, brown sugar, woody, and yeasty notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Very good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma: lots of malt with some apple juice undertones; Appearance: very dark amber, hazy, with fluffy white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: extreme sweetness up front that is tempered by some hoppy and caramel notes at the end; Palate: medium-heavy body with sweet finish; Overall: too sweet for me, but drinkable. Would not buy again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the bottle poured into trappist glass, pours dark brown with thick beige head. Nose is more of the unspectacular type, some roasted malts some yeast. Taste is yeasty, alcoholic, some dryed fruits. Finish is belgian yeast and alcoholic notes. Decent... but in my opinion one of the weaker trappist beers.

33cl bottle best by August 2017 - seriously let down by this. Toasty. Flat. Balanced. Not offensive.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. Cola coloured, with a fine, off-white head. Aroma of predominantly red berries. Unfortunate lack of taste, with only vague hoppy notes and a slight bitterness; what little taste there is swiftly dies.
