durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Austrian Trappists? Dark brown with garnet edges and a thin beige head with moderate lacing. Mild smoke and burnt sugar on the nose. Molasses notes and some dark fruits. Some chicory and/or anise notes. Taste offers almost a rye-like spiciness and more dark fruits--raisins, figs, plums. Complex, but a bit too much of everything. Too sweet as well, I think.

Grumbo (1340) - 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 (2645) - 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 (2231) - 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 (1125) - 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 (411) - 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 (540) - 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.

I_LUV_BEER (175) - - AUG 7, 2016
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!
