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!

In bottiglia. Colore nero con riflessi marrone. schiuma fine, abbondante e persistente. Aroma di frutta secca, nocciola, tostato, vinoso. al palato corpo rotondo, ben carbonata. sentori che rispecchiano l’olfatto con una nota alcoolica decisa ma non eccessiva. Finale lungo di frutta secca, nocciola e tostato.

0,33 L bottle, pours hazy and dark brown colored with light brown & creamy head, heavy malty aroma, dark chocolate, roasted malt, smoke. Light yeasty on the nose (dough). Flavor is according to the aroma. Moderate sweetness, light acidic. Light bitter, long finish. Full body with creamy texture. Soft carbonation, light dryness and smoke in the finish.

2015-10-31. Murky dark brown body, small tan head fades quickly. Malty aroma with tangy alcoholic accents. Flavour is similar, malty core is briefly sweet then dry with alcohol and tangy fruity quality. Smooth medium bodied palate, carbonation is a touch low for the style. 3+ Just okay, it shows promise but lacks the subtlety and cohesiveness of say a Rochefort. 7/3/7/3/14 Bottle from the LCBO cellared several months, Toronto.

Dark brown with a reddish tint. Almost no head. Spicy nose, plums. Aromas of wine, burnt caramel, malt, sour cherries. Quite an earthy finish with a lot of alcohol

Was in a dark bar (the great Hopleaf in Chicago), but this looks like a normal Belgium quad. Has the Belgium yeast mixed with dark fruits like plum, malt, and a chocolate/toffee taste. Sometimes reminds me of a wine or brandy feel to it. A bit of an oily texture and mouthfeel, with medium low carbonation. I was unfamiliar with this beer, but I am glad I tried it. I will choose a Westmalle or Chimay over it any time, but will never turn down a bottle of this.

Donkerbruin troebel bier met dunne schuimkraag die blijft plakken aan het glas. Niet al te uitgesproken aroma. Je ruikt wat noten, mout, banaan. Donkere smaak die beetje chemisch proeft. Noten, bittere chocolade, honing, banaan. De afdronk daarentegen is wel lekker, blijft lang plakken in de mond en is heerlijk zacht en warm. Geen slecht bier maar dit zal nooit mijn favoriete trappist worden...

Alright, this one is clearly the bedt of the three. Pours tan, ruby edges, light tan head. Some raisin, plum. Solid sweetness medium to full body.

Pours dark cola with some limited head and minimal lacing. Nose is fruity and syrup. Flavours of syrup, plums, maybe some grapes, brown bread. Taste is med/big sweet, medium/light bitter. Full almost oily body with medium carbonation. Alcohol is present but not overwhelming.

Foam is very nice and full, but decreases over time for a light layer of foam that seem to last forever. The aroma is mostly of a roasted malt. The taste is very delicate and composed of so many ingredients to the taste buds at the beginning can not even keep up. After some getting used to I discover a delicate chocolate malt toffee in the background. My favorite coffee is Wiener Melange (mild coffee with cream and cocoa), and it is precisely the symphony of flavor notes I also find in Gregorius. A lighter roasted malt flavor is felt along with a hop bitterness just balances the so nice to malt ago remains the beer’s main theme. The slightly sharp flavor that greets me at the end may be partly yeast merit, but I’m leaning towards the view that alcohol is high value becomes a little play here. I am basically very excited about Gregory, but several of the other Trappist Bier think I carry on more authenticity and genuineness.
