draught@Au Trappiste - hazy dark brown beer with a little foam left; aroma of plums, banana and wood; notes of pear and Cognac; full-bodied and highly sweet, tons of residual sweetness, figs, plums and other ripe fruits in a long woody aftertaste - very good but clearly too sweet for me to be great

Raisiny oaky vinous nose. Decent maltiness profile, caramel, wood, dried fruits. Mostly sweet with light bitterness, quite sticky. Weird - feels quite complex and enjoyable, but with bit shallow finish. No sign of 14 ABV. Quite awesome brew, but lacks bit intensity.

Flavor is full sweet, light bitter, malty and rich, cocoa, dark sugars, red wine. Full body, creamy. Solid.

Tap at Bruges Atelier. Aroma is booze, rich and fruity. Warming. Big and a little scary. Think this was the beer that pushed me over the edge judging by my notes.

Bottle shared at a tasting. Pours a clear red with a thin fizzy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of red wine, wood, toasted malt, coconut, toffee, booze, cherries. The taste is cherries, stone fruit, toffee, mild vegetal and mushroom notes. Medium bodied, prickly booze, low carbonation.

lol, this is a joke, basically undrinkable, it tastes fine, decent flavors, but intolerably sweet and thick. Its like drinking tasty maple syrup, how much do you really want?

Clear amber colour. Aroma of sherry, toffee. Oily texture. Taste has some sherry notes too, prunes, dates, some candy. Interesting but I prefer Land van Mortagne
