welllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll ldaxx’d’;l;lmmmdl;d what is this thing with the trappist label. Had to turn my brain off and kill the ’this isnt Rochefort or Chimay etc’ mindset. The pour was so lumpy that I thought I had a case of the lumps. The smell is ok but soft. The aroma is quite rich and full of cookie dough, some sort of bread, vanilla, brown sugar and pretty much sweet. Ok, so what is it that i don’t love about this? It’s got a harsh aftertaste, noggin says something metallic hanging around and it’s more bitter than I like. The taste is slighlty complye;x. even plastic. sigh... i wonder now if im just crushing it becasue i know its not the classics. brwon sugar, tart or something? colossal meh for me and this beer. At least it wasnt stupidly exopensive

Bottle split in the Bespin cloud network, thanks to Fergus, 20/10/15. Rich amber topped with a decent light beige covering. Nose is malt, sweet tunes, toffee, brown bread, light varnish, toasted brown sugar. Taste comprises candied fruit peel, dark malt, toffee, faint spice balances well with the sweet licks, dark fruit notes. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a tickle of booze. Ok Belgian stylee.

Leighton (15390) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Fergus. Pours rich red-gold with a tight, creamy off-white. The nose has some ripe citrus, bread, gummies. Medium sweet flavor with sugary bread, yeast, toffee, orange. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, more toasty bread, toffee, yeast, candi sugar. Tasty enough.

Scopey (10041) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle thanks to Fergus. It pours hazy orange-amber with a small white head. The nose is soft, sweet, stewed orange, spice, peach, vanilla and candy. The taste is bitter-sweet, orange peel, tangerine, spice, toasty grain, muffin, toasty cereal and cracker with a dry, lightly spiced finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Not much depth and a bit sweet. OK.

erickok (4469) - Leuven, BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2015
Reddish brown, frothy head. Super yeasty, esters, brown bread, fermenting fruit, apricot, fig compote. Taste is simpler but arguably still has a certain character. Exactly as expected, but that’s okay. Alcohol not too prominent for the style either. (33cl bottle from Delhaize Heverlee)

TheFoamhead (223) - Vught, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2015
Plum, dried fruit, honey, cinnamon but also some unmalted barley and spices dominate the aroma. The body is surprisingly light, I had expected a much heavier beer with a full mouthfeel. But the Benno is lean and in comparison with other Trappist Ales somehow watery. But despite its lean body, the taste does not hide the alcohol. The warm burn is contradictory. The flavor is sweet malty, enhanced by the honey used in the brewing process. Hints of almonds and a dry hop finish are the framework of this pleasent but also quite common beer.

33 cl systembolaget. En helt okej belgare även om den är från Österrike! Kul med trapister!

Amber colour. Small head. Nice hoppy finish. Didn’t taste any homey as was advertised on the bottle
