Bottle at home. Reddish brown, huge fluffy cream colored head on the initial pour, recedes rather quickly. Aroma is raisins, sherry, ripe red plums, distant chocolate, a hint of phenol. The mouthfeel is spritzy and effervescent. Medium bodied. Lots of ripe red fruits. Also cooked fruit flavors. Slight oxidized flavor. Belgian yeast. Good spice palate. Slightly dry finish. Overall very good, drier than a lot of dubbels, not overloaded with candy sugars, and interesting fruitiness.

Exceptionally nice, tan and persistent foam on a very fragrant ale. Its aroma is dominated by roasted malt mixed with other good smells of hops, fruit and a sweet smell of caramel. Taste is malty and hoppy in a very large and well-balanced manner. It has a small tang of fruit in a sweet aftertaste lead your taste through to a comfortable bitter and persistent end. A monastery brew that is among the best I have tasted, although perhaps a little too much Belgium in it. Sometimes I miss slightly wider variation in the Belgian monastery brew, just as it fortunately is not the case among the Danish micro breweries. Yet a commendable ale.

Ruby red colour with big foamy beigish head. Plum and malt in aroma. Bitter fruitish flavour with some weak plummy hints. Alcohol also present in flavour. A bit artificial flavours in this one...

Flaska@Berns bistro & bar. Kopparfärgad vätska med tjockt skum. Tydliga dofter av torkade frukter och mörk fruktkaka. Smak av russin och dadlar. Lagom avvägd sötma. Mjuk munkänsla och halvkort eftersmak utan störande alkoholtoner.

jamaty (1148) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 15, 2015
Según receta original de un monje de 1074. Marrón oscura, con dos dedos de espuma parda efervescente. Aroma de agradable caramelo. En boca, muy frutal, combinando muy bien con dulce en un sabor que dura. Como un licor suave.

Cor marrom avermelhado. Espuma boa, bege e de média persistência. Aroma de caramelo e malte tostado. No paladar malte torrado e frutas secas, em especial amêndoas. Inicialmente vivaz, leve dulçor e retrogosto seco. Muito equilibrada. Excelente!!!
