330ml bottle into a tulip. Pours a clear very dark brown, nearly opaque. Topped by a huge billowy off-white head that keeps growing thanks to the abundant carbonation. Some of the best head retention I have every seen. Aroma has lots of dark fruit such as figs and cherries layered on top of wood. Hints of pipe tobacco along with wet grass and hay. A little bit of light cocoa underneath. The flavor really has tons going on. Like in the aroma, dark fruit predominantly up front consisting largely of cherries and figs. A decent woody note is present along with a little bit of must although it nicely compliments the other flavors. Grass comes in next along with a moderate, cleansing bitterness. The beer finishes dry on the palate with bitterness lingering long after all other flavors depart. Overall, a truly complex and amazing beer. There is really so much going on here and the flavors change as the beer warms. One of the classics.

dandeman (493) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
En olfactif, beaucoup de fruits des champs, des mures des cerises noires, du pruneau, du bonbon, de la réglisse rouge et de la mélasse. Une superbe complexité. Visuel: Brun, flou, une mousse épaisse dense et effervescente à la fois. Le maintient est cependant moyen et les traces sont rares. Gustatif: L’attaque est douce, toute en sucre; la finale est longue et sèche, légèrement houblonnée et terreuse. Les notes sont surtout sucrées et fruitées avec du jujube, de la réglisse, des cerises noires, des mures, des figues, des dattes. La finale se maintient longtemps et laisse des accents de terre, d’écorce, avec un brin de conifère. Une bière très équilibrée. Une bière phare de son style.

Espectacular cerveza de abadia doble, tostada, al igual que su hermana tripel de lo mejor dentro de las cervezas trapenses. Riquisima si se marida con queso

0.33 bottle. Alcohol in aroma, could feel some raisins and caramel notes. Dark brown with light brown (caramel) head. Light sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour... in other words complex taste. Medium body, average carbonation. A nice enjoyable beer.

From 33cl bottle. Almost black, fluffy white head, long lasting with lots of lacing. Aroma of bran, dark chocolate. Soft on the palate with only mild carbonation. Long lasting hints of nuts, burnt caramel. Well balanced, delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
