3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very nice, chocolate-like color and with a nice subtile layer of foam. Sweet aroma of caramel with a touch of alcohol. It tastes a bit sweet in the beginning, but becomes bitter within the second. The aftertaste is subtile bitter. Enjoy it!
Erg mooi, chocoladebruin bier met een bescheiden schuimkraag. Zoet aroma van karamel met een toets van alcohol. De smaak is heel even zoet, maar wordt snel bitter met een subtiele bittere nasmaak. Genieten!

33CL bottle at home, there it was the beer I had been searching for and in my local beer shop. only it costed 6 Euro, the beer was OK, a decent Trappist but that was much about it, its nothing really special its a decent Trappist. Was it worth the 6 Euro, actually no.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells like raisins, sugar and spicy bubblegum-like phenolics. Maybe a bit of booze. Taste starts off sweet sugar and raisin, but then goes sour prune before becomming bitter and spicy/hot (boozy) on the long finish. Kinda weird. Very interesting to drink, but still don’t want more than half of this 11.2 oz bottle.

April 30, 2013 - bottle from Randalls. Brown pour with some nice head that lasted. Aroma was dark fruit, yeast, honey and spice. Taste was consistent with aroma with the spice and dry alcohol very noticeable in the finish. Fairly smooth to drink and medium bodied. Bottled January 2013.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl. bottle poured in to a trappist glass. B.B. August 2014. Dark amber colour with a creamy, dense tan head. Fruity aroma with rich caramel and bread malts, dark, dried fruits, licorice, honey, herbal hops, hints of yeasts and alcohol. Complex aroma. Medium to heavy sweet taste. Full body, creamy-oliy texture. Long lasting bitter-herbal finish with a hearthy amount of caramel malts, spices and a sweet fruitiness. Interesting interpretation of the trappist beers. The Austrian version will throw you you into beer heaven (Monks - monasteries...etc.) as the Belgian trappists do. Still a good beer.

had this twice so far, but don’t want to enter a rating yet. this is a placeholder for when I crack open the bottle in my celler. both were young. younger was raw, 6 months later it’s mellower. yeast autolysis has begun, nice. Conclusion drink this during 2014 for it to be actually good.
