Bottle from Bieresgourmet webshop. In honor of today’s news that Stift Engelszell is now officially a Trappist (TM) brewery, I can think of nothing better than to try their first creation - congratulations to the fine Austrian branch of the famous "Beer Order". :-) Pours a deep, near-black brown opaque body with a medium cloudy light beige head. Nose is chocolate, grains, yeast tones, nutmeg and dark malts, with hints of wood and herbs in the back. The yeasty notes kinda reminds me of the slurry gathered on the bucket bottoms of some of my darker home brews, which is a bit of a minus but hey, this is not bad. Taste is some nearly sour-ish caramel and chocolate tones up front, then grains, bitter herbs, burnt sugar and hints of grass in the finish. Softer carbonation than the Belgians, with a medium to thick texture and mouthfeel. Also, it’s somehow a bit more assertive than most other Trappist brews in the same league, with pronounced, near-roasty chocolate-like elements. I was expecting a sweeter brew, more in line with either the other BSA/Quads of its kind, or perhaps a hefty German doppelbock. This is neither, but instead a dark ale almost on the verge of becoming a mild sort of stout. Original for sure, and definitely proving that Trappist beers range wider than the traditional representatives. Rather tasty as well, but nowhere near its more famous brethren I’m afraid. Still: cheers for Engelszell and welcome aboard the Trappist Ark! :-)

lello4ever (194) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Il birrificio austriaco che la produce č da poco diventato ufficialmente produttore trappista. Questa birra rientra perfettamente nell’elenco delle ottime birre d’abbazia. Ha un colore marrone con una schiuma beige cremosa, aroma fruttato, sapore ovviamente dolce e un po’ speziato. Molto dolce e alcolica, promossa.

Dark brown with creamy head. Smell of Honey, and sweet roasted malts. Taste is of honey, roasted malts, dried fruit. Full body, and soft carbonation, with a quite long finish. Actually a bit supprised it was as good as it is!
