4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is a 4 year old bottle that made its way to me via a friend who got it from another friend living in Germany.
Pours a dark cloudy brown, good amount of extremely dense tan foam, leaves behind some fine lacing. Aroma is very lush: figs, cherries, sweetness. Taste is simultaneously smoky, sweet and malty, oaky and earthy, and fruity - raisins and figs most prominently. An extremely complex beer; the specific flavors seem to change subtly with each sip.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
En raritet. Svår att få tag på och mytomspunnen. Men inte så bra som alla säger. Söt doft. Egentligen en klassisk trappist. Otroligt god men inte världens bästa. Vinner på lagring. Mycket fylligare än en "färsk".

The beer is amazing! Starting from the bottle which is a piece of minimalistic art, towards the taste and the depth of it.

The most hyped but surely not the best Trappist Beer.. For me it missed out on the full body experience.

Nie jestem fanem tradycyjnych belgijskich stylów piwa, ale tego piwa nie można nie docenić. Jest świetne, bardzo gładkie i aksamitne. Bucha owocowym aromatem, daje cudowne wrażenia smakowe i odczucie w ustach. Nie jest to najlepsze piwo jakie piłem, ale zdecydowanie trzeba go spróbować.

4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
First time I rate a beer.
Just received a gift of 3 bottles, one already consumed.
It just goes on and on and..
The flavours are so in harmony with each other, no sign of alcohol.
This is such a treat.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki (bought 8/2013). A dark brown color with a medium-sized, dense and very well lasting head. The aroma shows the worth of this masterpiece: it offers varied, rich fruitiness with a central theme of ripe apple, and also berries, floral notes and spices. Taste is sweet and spicy and rich and long. Long, slightly sour finish. Ripe apple and berries create a refined, wine-like impression. Full-bodied, extremely smooth palate with a low carbonation. Refined, multidimensional, potent yet somehow also very subtle, civilized - and not in any way overrated. As close to a perfect beer as possible. Peaks above other abts.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Brown, reddish colour, large head. Strong aroma of fruits and caramel. Full body, lively carbonation. Rich taste: sweet and bitter.
This beer looks amazing from the moment you pour it until the last drop, keeping a steady head until the end. The aroma is intriguing, very rich, yet subtle enough to make you want to put your nose in the glass. The palate is extraordinary: while the liquid is heavy, it still fizzles in your mouth, making it very lively. The taste is solid enough to be recognizable, yet also very rich and interesting.
