TrefwoordPunk (830) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear amber with a medium frotty off-white head and an aroma of alcohol, roasted malts, cherries, dried fruits and yeast. The taste is slightly to medium sweet, with more complex notes and some bitter and sour notes in the finish. Pretty nice brew.

jamaty (1240) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Bonito color madera, miel oscura. Un dedo de espuma que desaparece al momento. Trozos de sedimento que afean el conjunto. Aroma acaramelado, miel, mínimamente herbal. En boca textura aceitosa, gas bien presente. Y sabor eminentemente dulce, caramelo, que evoluciona a un final de amargor herbal y levadura. Todo ello envuelto en un tono alcohólico. Son muchas cosas. El problema es que no acaban de integrarse bien, de modo que el resultado queda deslabazado.

Sa mousse est légère et crémeuse. Une note de miel/caramel se fait sentir l’odorat. Cette bière est de couleur ambrée. Niveau alcool, on ne le sent pas vraiment avec ses 6.9%. Quasi pas d’amertume, et je ne sens pas énormément de houblon. La bière est plutôt forte dans sa texture, on sent bien le côté trappiste de la bière. Un petit côté crémeux dans sa texture, mais pas trop. Elle présente une bonne carbonatation, qui fait bien ressortir les arômes. Un petit côté malt grillé, qui laisse un agréable goût assez doux et sucré en fin de gorgée, mais bref. En conclusion, c’est une bonne bière trappiste qui se laisse boire. Tant elle n’est pas écœurante, facile à boire et pas très forte en ABV qui plus est.

Hamirubi (311) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Absolutely good looking amber, with red orange gloom. A very thick, rocky beige to white foam collar. Looks very promising, and the flavours are spiced and hoppy. I think of dough or bread too. A great malt and bitter start, sharp even, but these great flavours lack in the finish. This light bittery ending however is medium sweet and the whole is rather light bodied. The different taste sensations don’t really contrast in a well balanced brew. But hey, overall quite an enjoyable beer - a beautiful member of the Engelszell trappist series.

Rune (9340) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2015
330ml bottle thanks to djoeye for sharing. Rocky off-white head leaving spotty lacing behind. Close to clear amber coloured body. Sweet smell of plums,pears, and earthy malts. Mid-sweet flavours of ripe citrus, dried fruits, caramel malts with a touch of yeast fruitiness to the ending. Well bodied. Pleasant (Tromsø 27.05.2015).

djoeye (2453) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2015
Look; good fawn foam, near clear amber body, crocheted lacing. Aroma; sourish fruit bouquet and apple peels, dry fruity impression to the nose. Taste; smooth fruit bowl, juicy malts, apples, peels, sourish apples mostly, fruity yeast, plums. Good body. Overall tasty, minus a bit too yeasty.

Dark amber with a big head. The aroma is fruity with some spice. The flavor has a lot of fruit with the spice too and a little bread. Long and tasty finish.
