Bottle. Chestnut brown with a tan head. Extremely inviting fruit malt nose. Festive candy fruit on the taste. Brilliant flavour. Invigorates the palate with its complexity. Sweet clean finish. A real pleasure.

Pours a dark brown with a fizzy off white head. Nose is dark chocolate, raisin, plum, currants, dark fruit. Flavor is smooth and rich. Lots of dark fruit, raisin, prunes, plums, toffee, cloves. Thick, viscous mouthfeel with a heavy body. Rich and warming, moderate carbonation. Silky and delicious. Gorgeous mix of dark fruit flavors and rich toffee and caramel.

Best brew while in Brussels, had on tap and from bottle. Great yeasty nose, lasting head retention, smooth and fresh on the palate.

Rated based on notes taken 25 June 2012 -- This is a solid trappist brew. I really need to buy some to age and see how well they do.

Donít know if I had a bad bottle, but I really didnít enjoy this one... pours dark brown with a big tan head that vanished almost instantly... very fizzy, and all I get is cherry coke... mouth feel is like a heavily carbonated can of cherry coke, and it leaves the aftertaste of cherry coke in my mouth... Iíll need to revisit this at a later date, because at the moment I canít stop thinking about cherry coke!! Disappointing, as there is so much praise for this beer.

GlasgowTAD (480) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2015
Pours a deep burgundy red with a khaki head of moderate size which quickly recedes to a third of its initial size. Aroma is dominated by malts - caramel, sweet biscuits, red wine and raspberry compote. Taste is caramel, hazelnuts, almonds, slight oak, some vanilla, a hint of tart berry, red wine, a hint of tart apple, dates and some pleasant alcohol warmth in the mid-taste. As complex as is described by the previous 4730 reviews. This tops the top 50 widely available beers list for me.

Excellent aroma and personality; maybe too high the alcohol percentage making more difficult to get the full taste.
