3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with garnet edges topped by a thin khaki head. Smells similar to some of the finest trappist quadrupels. Spicy, cherry, dark fruit, and woody esters. Taste is similar but a bit spicier than the nose. Full mouthfeel with stinging carbonation and a bit of an alcohol burn. Quite a tasty beverage!

I believe this bottle was several years old. Dark copper pour with one finger of sudsy tan head. Candy and dark fruit in the nose, odd esters, rusty, yeasty, and weird. Over carbonated. Doughy and yeasty with a vitaminy note. Not a fan.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a red-brown color with orange highlights and a large foamy beige head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was cherry, plum, boozy, almost medicinal and had a burnt caramel note. The flavor was boozy, black cherry, fig, plum, a touch medicinal, faintly smoky and had a bit of burnt caramel. Very long finish. Medium body. Odd but interesting.

Good beer... You may see this in a different label. This 2014 batch was better than the 2013, that’s for sure. Great flavor, great body... Good beer.

Great flavors of dark fruits. Great Belgium spices. Tastes in the style of the dubble. Down fall is in the body, plays out a little thin.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle thanks to Dan. Pours a dark ruddy brown color with a medium white head. A rich fruity nose, some caramel. This beer is a lot like Rochefort; spices, dark fruit, toffee, chocolate, very yeasty. The malt profile is just huge, and it has toasted malts, almost brown malt flavors. Deep dark fruit and candy. Quite good.

Tasting at Papsø’s
Dark brown color with red hue; small creamy head. Aroma of dark fruits, dark malts. Sweet flavor, caramel and light sourness, some dark fruits; low bitterness and quite high alcohol presence, boozy. Weird.
