With honey, huh? Bottle, ’Brewed in Year 2012/11’, so pretty fresh for a Trappist. Nose sweet, lightly fruity yeast, clover honey/strong floral component, some roast and a little more wood. Deep, dark mahogany brown body with a short tan head. Taste much the same as the aroma, yeast-forward, fruity, semi-sweet to start but dries out very nicely by the end, touch of bread in the finish, main course of grape and berry, mineral water, caramel/toffee, licorice, burnt plums and wisp of smoke; the whole shebang (and especially the palate) gets a light lift from warming alcohol but it’s incredibly subtle, seems more like a 6.5% Belgian. Clean, no astringency, minimal hops and very low bitterness, body is fullish with pleasant carbonation, overall impression fresh and vibrant. There is definitely a flavor contribution from the honey, though obviously no sweetness; it’s floral and vaguely herbal, the dank medicinal quality of Jäger or Angostura off in the distance but freed from the depressing clutch of liqueurdom. Very different from the other Trappist quads but well-made and quite tasty. A very welcome addition!

Aroma is wonderful, it smells like mixed nuts. Flavor has some nuttiness as well, along with fruit flavors, maybe plums. I think it’s too cold, I should have let this warm up a bit before drinking it, but it’s good nonetheless. Wilkommen in Österreich trappist beer.

ben tornata Gregorius! Finalmente la riconsidero parte della classe trappista. Sapore intenso di malto e caffè per poi accendere il palato con un finale "agro-dolce". Birra simile ad una rochefort 8 a mio parere! Ma sicuramente di livello inferiore!

Really subtle hint of honey. Delicious malty taste. Wonderful to see a Trappist brew from Austria.

zambririo (1) - - DEC 11, 2014 does not count
Bottiglia da 0,33. Colore ambrato scuro. Subito si presenta dolce al palato, ma dopo pochi secondi un amaro persistente è ciò che regna. Sentori di liquirizia. È una birra molto corposa e ricca, va centellinata.
