Tmoney99 (10550) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle. Poured a clear reddish brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy yeast, dark fruit and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth sticky texture and lively carbonation. Medium to heavy dark fruit sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish with a small alcohol burn of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

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 (7963) - 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 (382) - 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 (1023) - 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

Sparf (112) - Östersund, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2014
Mycket söt, bäraktig, jordig, fruktig arom. Väldigt bra komplexitet med maltig kropp och lite jästinslag. Mörkt brun vätska och ett frodigt och livaktigt skum. Dock ej särskilt varaktigt. Smaken svarar inte riktigt upp mot doften. Här är det en lite träaktig malt som ställs mot sötman. Rostningen bryter på ett lite kantigt sätt. Kroppen är tämligen tunn och har en lite för champagneartad karaktär. Eftersmaken är förvånansvärt besk men inte särskilt lång.

pdx77 (1317) - Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2014
From bottle labeled June 2013. Deep amber brown color. Aroma is cherry liqueur, brown sugar, and caramel chocolates. Taste is similar, with some added dark chocolate, honey, and oak notes. Just a tiny bit astringent on the finish, which keeps it from being a higher rating, but overall really enjoy the complex flavor and nice warming effect.

Case (239) - GERMANY - AUG 10, 2014
Pours deep dark brown with small beige head. Aroma of prunes, raisins, honey, caramel. Taste is dark fruit, vanilla, candied sugar, very nice bitterness. For an almost 10% honey-sweetened Quad this is surprisingly refreshing! Very nice worthwhile addition to the Trappist family.

Yves (2177) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Brown colored beer with large brownish head and lots of carbonation. Floks of yeast poored in. Nicy fruity hopped malty aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is malty fruited with some roasted, sour and metallic hints.

33cl bottle (abv 9.7% BB260914) kindly provided by Rune; light beige falling hood, brown brown red hazy muddy body, crocheted lacings. Old milk room aroma, sour-cream, old cocoa. Taste; choco-milky prunes, sourish chocolate. Sticky on palate. Sweet sour old-milky finish. Odd. [Pleasant rating session 5.aug.@Finns place]
