FROTHINGSLOSH (4971) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2014 Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with an enormous foamy tan head that lingered forever and left good lacing. The aroma was malty toffee, raisin, cherry, wood and bread. The flavor was malty and sweet with very strong dark fruits - cherry, fig, raisin - with anise, tobacco and a moderate alcohol presence. Wonderfully full and complex flavors that come in waves. Long finish. Outstanding.

ben4321 (4016) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Location: .33 liter bottle from Sparrow, 8/23/14

Aroma: The aroma is fairly sweet, some dark fruit/raisin, molasses, and a bit of toffee
Appearance: It pours a murky brownish color, with a small tan colored head
Flavor: The taste is sweet and rich, heavy malty and fruity, with a long fruity finish
Palate: The body is medium-full, fairly sticky, with a rich feel, and a soft-to-average carbonation
Overall Impression: Overall, this is a solid quad, but it could use a hint of balance. It is very sweet and rich. Certainly not something I’d want to drink more than one of in a row.

Straling (363) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2014
Clear dark brown colour with decent carbonation. As soon as you poor it, a strong sweet raisin like aroma hits the nose. Some floral and fruity notes there. Taste is much more elegant, nice sweet flavour with some bitter and sour notes. Goes down smooth, medium bodied with a touch of alcohol.

rayaron (211) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. Clear brown with low quickly diminishing brownish head. Aroma of bacon, meat, smoked, woody, pickles, sausage, sweetish, alcoholic. Very sweet flavor, woody, honey, syrup, date honey, fruity, notes of cherry, malty, a bit cheesy. Very alcoholic. Full body. Very sweet sticky liqueur aftertaste.

larsniclas (5635) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2014
Bottled from De Bierkoning Murky brown with a tan head. Spicy and slightly sourish aroma; prunes. Rather sweet flavour with fudge and dark chocolate. Slightly vinous.

rangerred (936) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - AUG 20, 2014
330ml bottle into a goblet. Pours a hazy very dark brown with a fluffy light tan head that doesn’t stick around for a very long time. There is a lack of lacing as well. Aroma is almost like cherry juice. Smells strongly of dark fruit with some caramel and molasses. Not bad but seems a bit sweet. The flavor hits very hard with the cherry and plum. It is very fruity with the sweetness to go along with it unfortunately. Caramel and honey comes in later with a quick shot of wood and alcohol. Sweetness lingers through the finish with alcoholic warmth. Overall, this beer is just not that refined and complex. It is actually somewhat disappointing for a Trappist beer. Nothing to go out of your way for.

Rune (8180) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2014
330ml bottle bought quite a while ago at Barley Wine in Copenhagen. Stable fawn-coloured head. Opaque red-brown body colour. Minimal lacing. Mid-sweet aroma of dried fruits. Plums, honey and prunes to the taste buds. Fine bodied, but overly sweet. Flat and rather disappointing (shared with djoeye and Finn, Tromsø 05.08.2014).

Bosskie (407) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Opaque dark brown, weak head, some yeast. Smell is pears, apples and caramel. Some sourwood. Subtle wood and chocolate. Taste is fizzy salty sweetness. Subtly sour. Chocolate dominates with subtle alcohol. Dry oily finish.

Alengrin (2076) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
The first trappist beer outside of the Low Countries if you don’t count the ’semi-trappist’ Mont des Cats, since 2011. Off-white, coarse head, hazy bronze-brown colour with burgundy hue. Sweet fruits in the aroma, candied cherries, banana, chocolate, leather, mocca, caramel; taste likewise begins with sweet candied fruits, hint of candi sugar, banana, figues, honey sweetness clearly noticeable, chocolatey and caramelly malts, well-rounded, grassy hops in the finish as well as warming, Schnapps-like alcohol, but fortunately not too astringent. I don’t think this beer comes even close to the world class of the great Belgian trappists, but it is a very decent beer nonetheless, albeit a tad too sweet for my taste.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 Pours a hazy dark brown body with a thin head. Very nice aroma of burnt sugar. Nice and rich malty taste with tones of candy and bread. A winner! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
