4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Drank from a tulip glass. Cola cola with little head. Not much lacing left on the glass. Lot’s of floaties in the glass, tasty yeasty bread bugers. Aroma is not too overwhelming which is nice. You pick up the rasins, bread, malt, clove and belgium spices. Taste and palate are bar none. Very smooth, no detection of alcohol, light carbination and a creamy mouthful. Taste of dry fruits, bread, dough, malts and yeast. Excellent beer and would love to drink again.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown, as in an extremely dark amber, with a beautiful fluffy tan head. Aromas are complex, with currants, malts and a general dark chocolate-cocoa like background. Full body, beautiful, with a well hidden alcohol. Malts dominate the finish, some sweetness with the fruity notes (peach, plum!) perfectly balances it. The flavour profile is very complex and developing, very well crafted. Long finish: some caramel and a little hop resin can be perceived as well as the more obvious fruitiness and malt. Nice, but I want to re-rate from a different batch soon. I feel like there might have been something slightly off.

330 ml bottle. Big creamy head. Finish brings out some burnt flavors and even dark chocolate. High alcohol level is well balanced and precisely set on the right line. Pretty great Trappist beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2016 Pours a deep hazy brown from the bottle with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma of dark Belgian fruity esters and burnt sugars. Taste follows, hint of caramel and molasses. Impressively easy to drink for the abv, feels light as well, but really flavorful and awesome.
