SWZA (5) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2015 does not count
This beer has potential but right now it lacks execution. Everything is great until the finish and/or aftertaste. Smells like pineapple, initial maltiness, faint honey, then weird bitter/acrid aftertaste once it’s swallowed. The finish is no good on this beer. I like the honey dimension, however.

PapaVillum (659) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2015
0,33 l, flaske, 9,7 % ABV, BB: 30.01.16, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 9. juli 2015. Mørkebrun ufiltreret østrigsk Abt/Quadrupel med 2-3 cm moccafarvet tætskummende krone, som svinder til 1/2 cm efter en halv snes minutter. Aromaen er indledningsvis præget af chokolade og frugt. Rosin, blomme, sveske. Senere udvikler aromaen sig mere vinøs med gæret frugt, kirsebær, og gærbakterier af læder. Smagsbilledet indledes med en dyb fyldig bittersød smag og ender i et mere bittert skær. Solid sødme, middel bitterhed, stor kompleksitet. Rund og fyldig krop med veltilpasset karbonering på et medium niveau eller et nyk under. Klæbrig konsistens og en bitter samt kun mild sød afslutning. På nogle punkter minder dette bryg en del om Abt 12 fra St Bernadus, og her ligger både charmen og fascinationen, men også problemet: at den ikke helt er sin egen.

Lacho (25) - USA - JUL 4, 2015
Not what I expected, tastes of caramel, roasty, doughy, but a little fizzy. Very intense licorice, powerful prune aftertaste. I would place it as one of the lower ranked Trappists.

A wonderful dark Trappist! Aroma of burnt toffee, dark caramel, and raisins. More of the same in the taste. Nice, burnt, but balanced aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle from the LCBO. Jesus, it’s been HOW long since I put in a rating? I fear my backlog. Deep clear fizzy red-brown with a smallish diminishing tan fizzy head. Fairly simple aroma - fruit, alcohol, quite sweet and yeasty, but not all that complex; a little herbal. Taste is also simple - alcohol, prune and sweet malt - my wife says it has a metallic/ferrous aftertaste, but I think that was synergy. Stingingly carbonated, a little thin, not boozy in the finish at all - not bad, doesn’t taste over 10% - borderline "meh"

Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a deep brown colour with a generous foamy tan head. Aroma is molasses, some chocolate. Taste is same, brown sugar. Very good beer.
