This beer is one of the great beer that is easy to get very in terms of distribution and cost-effective first. It is a taste of the basics of Trappist beer, but again surprised the good that it can try to return to drink also has a complex flavor. Fit very well in recipes and it is a thing which is easy to drink to people of beer novice.

Pours amber red with a small off white head. Smells nutty and caramelly, tastes the same and for me kind of one noted and quite boring. The trappist yeast flavors are not present and this is for me just boring lightly toasted malt with some earthy caramel nuttiness.

Dark amber color. Aroma is yeast, dried fruits. Taste is lightly roasted malt, spices and apple and raisins. Essentially no hops. I enjoyed the yellow a lot more, but this is obviously an excellent beer.

Dark amber colored with a white head. Fruity aroma. High carbonation. Caramel and citrus taste with a slightly coffee undertone. Creamy aftertaste. Pretty decent dark trappist.

The first beer tasted in a delightful evening of stating and scoring Belgian Trappists beers. I don’t read the beer notes above before marking which probably explains why my description differs greatly from what I am supposed to taste - maybe it’s my palate..? Anyway, I got some lovely rich velvety chocolate / coffee undertones which complemented perfectly the dark brown colour.

Drank in a drunker stupor but think fulfilled my belief i’m not too bothered about trappist beers - just not my thing.

Pours brown. Smells of dark fruits, caramel, and grapes. Taste is of dark fruits and caramel. Leaves a great lingering taste in your mouth.
