Lo scetticismo ha infuocato tutti i conservatori alla notizia del veloce allargamento della cerchia dei birrifici trappisti al di fuori del Belgio. La qualità però non ne ha risentito. In una degustazione alla cieca chiunque sbaglierebbe ma questa quadrupel é austriaca, non belga! Si presenta color bruno carico con riflessi rubino. Schiuma sottile ed evanescente. Al naso ciliegia, in bocca prugna, uvetta ed una punta di cioccolato al latte. Luppolo assente Corpo robusto, alcolicità avvolgente e che riscalda il cuore. Carbonatazione media e piacevole. Una birra che sarà presto sulla bocca di tutti.

Tomada en casa, comprada en Hipercor. Mucho gas. Espuma beis cremosa, cerrada. Cerveza tostada de 9’7°. Aromas a caramelo y pasas. Esta bien, no deja de ser una más en su estilo. Salvo el exceso de gas, todo bien.

Kafzar (8) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2016 does not count
Great beer! It offers a great taste and has a good nose. With a 9,7% it is as expected, not an easy drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ardeo (87) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle 33. Bière brun rouge un peu trouble. La mousse est peu abondante et retombe très vite. Arômes chocolat et miel. Bouchée sucrée mais pas trop, le candi apparait et le breuvage est relativement doux (avec une légère amertume) et pas vraiment écoeurant. La bière semble très forte, l’alcool est très présent en bouche et la trappiste est pour moi moins équilibrée que "nos" trappistes belges.

Bobson (58) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle @ Juventa beer tasting with Thompson. Looks quite dark with some small hints of flakes at the bottom. Smell gives you quite some caramel with a hint of hops and yeast. Taste is strong hints of caramel with coffee and yeasts at the end. Overall, solid beer but within a category that I don’t usually fancy.

Meget syrlig af en belgisk øl af være. Eller i hvert fald trappist, den er alt for syrlig der er ingen balance i den.

Een kruidige en fruitige donkere tripel uit Oostenrijk. Het aroma heeft gebrande mout en appelstroop in zich. De smaak wordt gevormd door peer, pruim, rozijn, krent en koffie. Lekker op een koude dag.

Saeglopur (1573) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 24, 2016
330 ml bottle bb 25.10.14, first batch from 2012 with 9.7% ABV.
Dark brown body, with a medium, creamy, a bit fizzy, beige head.
Aroma of caramel, honey, dried fruits, dark berries, cocoa, some toast, some coffee.
Taste follows this, with some more dry wooden and cocoa powder notes and some alcohol.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes dry, medium roasty, medium sweet, warm, with cocoa, honey, toast, some wood, slight coffee.

What a surprise, this ages damn well! I had the same batch fresh back in 2012, where it was harsher and a bit unbalanced, with a rating around 3.7-3.8. Now it’s round and complex, with the right balance of sweet, dry and toasty notes. Alcohol provides a pleasant warmth. Unique trappist, that also has elements of a Porter. Very interesting, looking forward to adding a fresh batch rating someday.
