3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2014 A clear dark yellow body with a white head that laces nicely. Nose has aromas of yeast, raisins, herbs and caramel. Taste is quite sweet with a strong bitter finish. Carbonation feels soft and the palate is quite rich and filling. A nice, albeit somewhat simple drink.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Rolduc. Orange blond, nice fluffy head. Nose is citrusy, a bit zing with licorice. Thin mouthfeel but still a bit heavy; taste is sweet coriander, a small bit of spice at end. Pleasant. Definitely biased in the tasting after drinking this in the cellar of the monastery ;)

330ml bottle - shared by mjs - thanks!
Milk pudding and lots of raisins in the aroma, but sweet and sickly. Anna says it smells of US "biscuits". Plenty of caramel in the taste. A baaaad ale, but still has a vague drinkability to it. Too sweet and sticky.

330 ml bottle. BB? From the Netherlands. Courtesy of mjs. Bedankt!
Hazy golden colour with a small off-white head.
Yeast, spices and biscuits in the aroma.
Bitterness, yeast, bread, malt and sweetness in the flavour.
The flavour is quite bad to be honest.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orange coloured beer, a medium head that sticks pretty good to the glass but loses height a bit quick. Aroma of alcohol, ripe fruits and some yeast. Something liquorish getting trough. Bread, and fruits at the taste. Sweet, with a light sourness getting trough. Not totally what I expect.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Mild malzmuffiger Antrunk mit säuerlicher Beinote. Etwas herb im Mittelteil, prickelnd, weiterhin mild malzmuffig, der Unterton ist wässrig. Im Abgang wird das Malz cremiger, bleibt aber in seinem muffigen Umfeld. Nicht gerade ein Top Bier. Danke an den Doppelbock für das Bier!
