75cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks! Pours slightly hazy dark copper with a tan head. Malty and fruity aroma with notes of Belgian yeast, caramel and hints of spices. Medium sweet, complex, well balanced and elegant. Hint of alcohol is noticable, but well integrated.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 Purchased at a bar in Toronto in a 750ml bottle. It was very expensive beer at a rather expensive bar. But anyways it was good with malty, dark red fruits, caramel, some figs aswell, I didn’t really get to see much head, Im not sure of the waitress poured it properly. Anyways good beer, but not the best trappist beer for me.

Because it is a large bottle, quite different taste in the top and bottom of the bottle. Around the top’s refreshing taste that was refreshing. Too rather refreshing. In the depth of feeling good, it’s good to be appropriate drink slowly around the bottom.

February 20, 2014. 75cl bottle at beerbistro. Chocolate, toffee, plums, raisins in aroma. White head dissipated leaving a thin white film of bubbles. Lovely warm dark brown colour. Lots of depth to this beer. Goes exceptionally well with steak.

Bière qui ne parvient pas à me convaincre. Même après dégustation sur place et au soleil elle n’a pas réussi à enjoliver ma journée!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Handsome dense, tan head slowly dissapating over dark brown copper beer. Nice medium plus aroma intensity offering warm roasted aromas including caramel, fruity coffee, nuts. Smooth on the palate, suitably carbonated for my taste to moderate freshness, with a dry yet faint sweet malty presence and faint bitterness, giving dried fruit, oloroso and other aroma promises. The midpalate is wholesome and the finish is longish. I was reminded of the Westvleteren 8 palate, but this was pleasing on its own and left me very satisfied.

Bottle shared at the Quadfest. Aroma is orange peel, slight clove, and dates. Pours deep hazy orange brown with a nice thick head. Taste follows suit with a little brown sugar, orange rind, and a mellow malt finish. Solid Quad.
