Si presenta di colore marrone scuro (o tonaca di frate), leggermente velata, ottima schiuma color beige, abbondante, cremosa con grana delle bolle media, e con un bel cappello persistente. Al naso intensità elevata, malto, caramello, miele, spezie, frutta scura; odori che sembrano aver trovato casa nelle narici. In bocca è un’esplosione di sapori, attacco dolce di caramello, zucchero di canna, vino, buona presenza alcoolica; note di caffè, cacao, liquirizia, e ancora uva passa, frutta scura (prugna, fichi, more...). Corpo strutturato. Retrogusto leggermente amaro e astringente, che gli dona un equilibrio eccellente. Birra trappista eccezionale, che incorpora al meglio tutte le caratteristiche dello stile. PERFETTA!!!

Gregorius has a vaport train out the bottle neck, a thin, cream-colored head, a dark brown appearance, minimal lacing, and an incredible amount of pretty large tan chunks which settle at the bottom, making this beer almost a semi-solid beverage. The aroma is intense, and the drinker will pick up a multiplicity of smells, including grape skin, wine, vinegar, Maraschino cherries, acid, duck sauce, yeast, brown bread, bread crust, honey, lo mien noodles, and spice. Taste is likewise complex, with flavors including all of the above, plus smoked pork, Warheads sweet & sour candies, pine oil, licorice, prunes, butter, and assorted spices. Mouthfeel is heavy and chewy, and Gregorius finishes wet and cloying and munch-able. Overall, this is an outstanding beer, at a minimum, and I recommend it, in the strongest possible terms. RJT

nearbeer (4877) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 27, 2014
33 cl. thanks to Gem. Pours opaque ebony with a lasting disc of foam. Nose is smoked meat, blackberry, honey, apple, dates and blackstrap molasses. Tastes of tart berry, semi-sweet chocolate, raisin, biscuit, espresso with cream, soy, a touch of smoky hickory, apple, vanilla, charred wood, red wine and more. Medium-heavy body is smooth with a medium carbonation and shows just a nice touch of the abv. Wow a smoked Trappist tripel/quad/stout! This is definitely a style buster and also a very nice dessert beer.

Poured from bottle into tulip. About the same color as the bottle, deep brown. I was expecting a normal trappist brew. I did not see the brewed with honey on the bottom. The honey gave it a sweetness to the roasted malts that I think played wonderfully together. It is hard to give a explanation of the aroma, reminds me of the dark woods after a rain. Maybe the beer soaked basement of a frat house. I find a bit of alcohol on the finish. A standout beer, fantastic.

Special anniversary tapping at Summits. Comes out of the tap a rich, deep sable - not much head, but that must be an artifact of the pour. Aroma fills the nostrils with roast malt, sharp fruity and caramel notes plus a hint of bourbon. Rich flavor stimulates them taste buds with caramel, malt, pear, and subtle chocolate and bourbon tones. Sweetness and sourness rather nicely balance each other. Firm texture is silky-smooth, yet has fizz to spare. I definitely need to get to Belgium someday and enjoy these wonderful beers right at the source!

Bottle at La Trappe, SF. Pours nearly black with a tan head. Aroma of roast, spice, and caramel/toffee/treacle. Taste is amazing! Treacle, caramel, roast grains, dark fruit, brown sugar, with a dry finish. Full body, great carbonation. Really good stuff!

Botella de 330ml. Copa Cáliz. Aromas de muscatel y pasas al destapar. Color ámbar muy oscuro y apariencia nublada. La espuma beige-bronceado crea una persistente capa y deja encajes en las paredes. Increible perfil aromático que despliega trazos de mermelada de ciruela y maltas caramelo tostadas, orejones, azúcar moreno quemado, chocolate con leche y miel. Entrada suave, cremosa con sabor malteado y redondeado por infusión de café y hierbas. Cuerpo pleno y carbonatación suave. Paladar denso, cálido y aterciopelado. En el intermedio afloran sabores afrutados de ciruelas y uvas pasas junto a un toque cítrico muy sutil con notas de melocotón y albaricoque. Final dulce y equilibrado por matices herbales. Retrogusto largo, largo. Deliciosa!! 330ml bottle. Chalice glass. Muscatel & raisin as cap is removed. Very dark amber color, cloudy appearance. Beige tan head creates a close, lasting crown leaving lacing on sides. Amazing aroma profile displays hints of plum marmalade & toasted caramel malt, dried & sweet peach, burnt brown sugar, milk chocolate & honey. Smooth, creamy & malty upfront rounded by coffee infusion & herbs. Full body. Soft carbonation. Dense, warm & velvety mouthfeel. Fruity flavors arise in the middle showing raisin, prune, very subtle ripe citric touch, peach & apricot notes. Sweet finish rounded by some herbal hues. A long, long aftertaste. Flavorful!!

pours a deep amber brown and a beautiful beige creamy head. Aroma is of dried fruits and christmas spices. also spirits. taste is sweet, dried fruity and a liquorice gentle retronasal. spiced hops with an alcoholic halo as a potent beer. perhaps a bit obvious the cognac aftertaste. Excellent quadrupel.
