4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the beers Iím most excited to try, even with more than 200 here and some over ten years old - but this one, I canít wait! Deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, fast-dying brown head. Aroma of nice raisins, earth, malt, oak, cherries, yeast, caramel and a pleasant complexity - very nice. Medium-bodied; Assertive raisin, pit fruit, caramel, chocolate, peat, yeastie and even light spicey flavours throughout make for a very interesting and super complex beer. Aftertaste shows just as much character as the beginning - with so much to choose from - sweetness, depth, spiciness and a good alcohol and pungent earthiness on the end. Overall, a great beer and quite simply - one that needs to be sampled, just like each of the other trappist beers. Definitely lived up to its billing and while I might like to have a Rochy 10 or Westy 12 more...this is a great addition to the trappist family and one that Iíll plan on keeping a few of around to age. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia on 30-January-2013 for USA$5.99 sampled at home on my very first Fatherís Day on 16-June-2013. Bottle brewed in November 2011, Purchased in January 2013, sampled in June 2013 - 13m//6m//19m brewed to drank

Pours murky dark brown with a small head. Aroma is nothing special with a bit of chocolate and alcohol. Thick in body and a bit sticky. Flavor is sweet with chocolate, sour cherry and a touch a wood.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown color with low off-white head. Aroma is pretty subtle. Fruity, bit of chocolate, caramel, toffee and Belgian yeast. Mouthfeel is pretty chewy but soft with medium carbonation. Medium bodied. Caramel and suggestions of chocolate in flavour along with that subtle doughy tone of Belgian yeast. Quite uninteresting beer.

Tap from oak cask. Beautiful brownish dark ruby. Lasting dense tan head with lace. Dark fruit, light alcohol, caramel, honey. Rich and lovely. Medium body, slightly sticky. Sweet and clean. Have not tasted bottled version yet, but would bet this surely surpasses it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown body with a this small limited cap. Aroma is limited, and I mean its almost nothing at all. I mean possible possible prune, red wine, WHERE IS THE SMELL, this is smelless. Taste is there but is it right? Prune, mild alcohol, bitter finish, dry. Very dry! Taste has no real faults but nothing memorable. Brown sugar, oak maybe?!?!? Cherry in the finish. This beer is not good not bad nothing really to say except it fails as a quad.
