3.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: deep muddy brown with a thick and creamy but quickly-vanishing head, which left some shimmery lace curtains. Aroma: one of the best smelling beers ever, thereís tons going on, with more coming out in every sniff as it warmed--raisins, plums, molasses, caramel, brown and candi sugars, toffee, leather, pipe tobacco (cherry), chocolate, toast, booze. Taste: very sweet at first, with dark fruits in heavy syrup, molasses, chocolate, and brown sugar; then the booze takes over, bringing some rough edges including a rather unpleasant medicinal note. Finish: slightly bitter, boozy, with lingering minerality and cough syrup flavors. Notes: Really wanted to love this, and based on the nose already I was deep into like. However, the flavors and palate were a little unbalanced, and the medicinal/mineral note was quite off-putting. I like a smoother abt, and this one was definitely rough around the edges. Glad to try it, though.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Bottle. Dark with white foam, which disappears pretty quick. Great aroma, caramel but quite intense. Bitter and sweet flavours, quite nice balance but not as refined as the traditional trappisten beer. Palate is nice and if it is definitely a beer you could have a few of. --- Rated by Victor

Sweet, malty, a bit rough, green apples, orange, raisin, caramel, chocolate, a bit smoky as well. Quite tangy. Too much green apple, not really coming together, rather thin body as well. Very green, and kind of lame.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brussles bottle best by 19.06.15 at roughly cellar temperature. A trappist beer from Austria? Its got the marking so it must be official. Fairly typical dark pour. Aroma seriously seems to have some heavy grapefruit, bubble gum, and spice to me. More spice in the flavor as well. Itís okay, not my favorite quad out there.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Dark colour, minimal head. I poured not very carefully, so there were lots of yeast pieces or something, making the beer not look very aesthetic. Aroma of vanilla, spices, something like black olive, a bit of honey. First impression is a bit of sour flavour like of olive, much dark chocolate, pleasant warming alcohol. After warming up reveals some honey flavour. No raising or prune, which I liked. Low bitterness. Flat carbonation, very pleasant mouthfeel. The beer is very drinkable, I regretted having only a 0,33l bottle of it.

Deep brown in color, with little to no head when poured. Strong malt taste hinting some nuts and chocolate. Nice smooth slightly dry finish balancing the beer out very nicely.

9th February 2013
Very dark brown beer. Few tan bubbles for a head. Palate is slightly soft and dry, Mild carbonation. Rich molasses with marmite as well. A splash of Coca Cola/Dr Pepper. Mild malt cream and subtle bubblegum ester. Semi dry finish. Not bad, a bit heavy on the molasses, but overall tasty.
