75cl bottle poured into chalice. Great aroma of belgian yeast with some bready fruit notes to it. Pours a beautiful dark brown with a light tan head that dissipates into a ring that sticks around. Tastes incredibly smooth with a great mouthfeel and carbonation. Great yeasty flavors.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl bottle at home. Pours a clear dark red-brown with a white head. This rapidly disappears leaving a thin film. Slight aroma of malt with some leafy hop just detectable. Pleasant taste of sweet malt with some bitterness: well balanced. Palate is on the thin side, there is a floury edge to the finish. Ending dry, but the sweetness is still there. Overall: OK, better than I remember.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown-amber color with big head. Spicy yeasts, chocolate and a bit of fruitiness. Taste is the same. Just a bit boring for a Trappist beer... Not my favourite.

Pour is loud and and the colour of homemade iced tea. The cap is an inch and a half of tan foam, even with the gentlest of pours, but it settles to a film pretty quickly, leaving a bit of lace. The nose on this stuff is a treasure trove. I get something new with every sniff: pungent Belgian yeast, prunes/raisins, banana, lots of spice, hazelnuts, dark caramel/toffee, a hint of something floral. Taste is a slightly sweet malt with caramel and hazelnuts, ripe banana. The booze is virtually invisible until the finish, where it starts to give off this pleasant, lingering warmth. This is remarkably drinkable for 9%, and while it’s not dry per se it’s remarkably well-balanced. And I just downed it in ten minutes, on an empty stomach, so there goes my night. Cheers!
