aroma: caramel, toast, smoke, apparenza: black, cloudy, frothy, gusto: medium sweetness, medium bitterness, palato: light body, sticky, average carbonation, abrupt il vero problema è stato l’approccio verso questa birra..uno sente "trappista" e subito pensa alle chimay,alle rochefort,allw westmalle,westvleteren e quindi si aspetta birre veramente importanti e di un certo rilievo e invece trova questa...aroma poco complesso,assolutamente non da tappista,alcolico,affumicato,malto tostato..è molto scura e ha una bella schiuma marrone..gusto che svela un corpo leggero,una carbonazione bilanciata e ancora malto più che tostati direi affumicati con retrogusto luppolato giusto al minimo..insomma non è una birra da buttar via,piacevole,riscaldante,ma è una dimostrazione che le "trappiste" non sono uno stile di birra ma semplicemente birre prodotte con metodi particolari che le permettono di attribuire questo marchio..a vincere è il belgio..sinceramente mi è sembrato di bere una scherlkerla (si scrive così?),quindi piacevole ma niente di che..!

caribou43 (590) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 27, 2016
I bought this beer at Amstein. I drank yesterday, relax after a heavy day of job. In my point of view, it is a good trappist, strong and you feel the degree of alcohol, you don’t need to drink thousends of this beer to become drunk. Like an imperial stout, it is the kind of beer that you drink with a good book like "l’assomoir de Zola", when the weather is bad outside. The body is a powerful brown color, brown and white foam. The carbonation is low but it is normal for the style. The taste is delicious, malt, cloves, ginger bread, plum and apricot, hop but hidden by this really sweet side. It is a bit like a syrup.

Zarrach76 (9) - FRANCE - SEP 25, 2016 does not count
Bière brune très trouble, moyennement huileuse, avec une mousse fine au collet léger. Au nez, on retrouve le café, le chocolat, le caramel, la noisette, les céréales chaudes, le pain d’épice et même une odeur de fruits rouges (fraise, framboise, cassis) et de fruits secs (datte, figue, banane) fort agréable. Un arôme vraiment riche, souple et ample où l’amertume du houblon est absente. En bouche, des houblons se font sentir dès la première seconde avec une attaque franche, le sucre est léger, l’alcool présent sans s’imposer, et on retrouve ce goût de grains torréfiés (café, chocolat, céréales...) fort agréable. La carbonatation est moyenne. L’amertume est très présente sur la finale. Le goût est franc, moins complexe que le nez, avec une longueur moyenne. On aurait aimé un peu plus de corps et d’amplitude. Reste un goût fumé sur un arrière plan houblonné. Une bonne quad qui satisfera les amateurs, même si la bouche mériterait d’être un peu plus travaillée. Un très bon produit cependant. Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

Grumbo (1367) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle from www.slijterijhetfust.nl and split at the EU themed 2nd Ipswich bottle share. Pours a deep dark red/brown colour with a medium sized beige colour head. Aroma is fruity, caramel, quite sweet, with alcohol and spiced notes. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Medium body, surprisingly thin though, average carbonation. Finish is dry with lingering alcohol edge.

dnstone (2651) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Dark brown with a soft off-white. Roasty malty sweet with hints of burnt bread crust and a touch of alcohol and a soft texture. More breadiness than other quads. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trapped (2249) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 11, 2016
Bottle. Murky brown with small foamy beige head, berry and caramel aroma, high carbonation, caramel taste with alcohol undertones and dark berries, thin body, long caramel-berry finish. Very satisfying, better than I’ve expected.

ljthiessen (1126) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 9, 2016
Bottle. Murky (and chunky!) chocolate brown pour with a tan head, good lacing. Aroma is cherry, raisin, plum, vanilla, very slightly boozy. Taste is raisin, leather, subtle licorice and chocolate, a little woody, rich and nicely balanced.

hauxe (415) - Butzbach, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2016
From Austria’s only Trappist brewery. Pours cacao brown from the bottle and leaves a tan head that fizzes and dissipates. Impenetrable. No evident lacing. Aroma is a heady concoction of rich caramel, honey, chocolate, and cognac. A good start. The taste fails to follow through at the same level. Warm, alcoholic, again cognac, but also raw alcohol set atop chocolate and caramel. Not a bad beer but not the same complexity of some of the better Trappist beers I’ve tasted. It certainly fails to disguise the 10.2 ABV nearly as well. Finishes bitter with alcoholic notes. Heavy bodied. Good. Not great.

Bawelt (553) - Lyon, FRANCE - AUG 20, 2016
Nez plein de caramel un peu fumé et boisé, de la mélasse, un fond de réglisse, des notes de pommes confites. Bouche assez caractérielle, attaque très ronde, caramel, légèrement épicée avec la réglisse. On sent un côté noisette grillée, un côté boisé un peu plus amer et qui coupe le côté mélasse. On sent tout de même une petite effervescence malgré l’aspect très épais, très sirupeux. Pas trop mal, manque quand même de complexité et de force aromatique plus marquée.

Served in a tulip from a 330ml bottle. Pours deep ruby-red colour with a mdium beige head. Aroma is caramel, red fruits, bread, sour grapes, roasted malts and wine. Taste is red fruits, molasses, caramel and bread. Rich and full body with medium carbonation. Excellent!
