3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
First bottle! Pours deep brown-red with gold highlights, looks both serious and beautiful. Loads or rich flavors like ripe grapes, figs, vanilla, mineral and toffee. Some high notes like lemon and nuances of manure and barnyard. Has a creaminess elegance and mystique I was wholly not expecting, wow! Gonna stock up - I have a new friend and maybe it will age well.

Big inviting aroma, raisins and bubblegum. Very nice pour, pours brown, ruby red in the light, big light brown head. Taste is sweet and rich, fruity, good velvety texture in the mouth with a full body. Long aftertaste, very slight spice, will drink again! Nice to see some new trappists.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 mL bottle. It ain’t a tripel, even a dark one. Way too malty. It’s somewhere between a dubbel and a quad. Solid, but doesn’t stand out in any particular way.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep amber brown pour. The nose is plummy and a little bit fudgey. A
fairly pronounced chocolatey note with a touch of molasses and cooked
fruit. Figs, prunes, a touch of herbal character. Hoppy enough to
balance the really luscious sweet fruity notes on the back. Unctuous
malty mouthfeel. Really rich and delicious. Thick and a little bit
toasty. The herbal notes kind of pick up as the beer warms. This is an

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thick beige head. Aromas of caramel, dark fruit and chocolate. Dark, fruity flavors up front--plum, raisin. Then chocolate, coffee, toffee. Finishes with a bit of licorice, coffee, dark chocolate and tart fruit. Substantial booziness. Very complex, fruity and dark. Lively, peppery mouthfeel. This is a good one.
