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! :-)

Niewielka, sycząca pianka, która szybko opada prawie do zera. Barwa brunatno brązowa, mętna. Aromat intensywny, słodki, zdominowany przez suszone i kandyzowane owoce, miód, porto oraz lekko żelazistą nutę kontynentalnego chmielu. W smaku nie jest aż tak słodko, jak można by przypuszczać po zapachu (zresztą pojawia się do tego delikatna kwaskowość morelowa w afterteasie). Oczywiście tu także prym wiodą daktyle, figi, suszone gruszki i śliwki oraz palony karmel, miód za to jest mniej wyczuwalny. Jest też sporo nut przyprawowych, korzennych i wyraźny likierowy alkohol, przywodzący na myśl rodzynki w spirytusie. Goryczka nieduża, głogowa. Wysycenie średnie, wyklejające i treściwe w odbiorze, średnio gęste.
Smaczny Quadrupel, choć dla mnie nieco zbyt alkoholowy. Belgijskie i holenderskie odpowiedniki w moim odczuciu jednak prezentują wyższy poziom.

Flesje thuis gedronken. Donker, roodbruin matig schuimend bier . Bier is niet helder, maar het flesje is net over de datum ( 12-03-2016 ). Geur is goed, fruitig en caramelachtig. Smaak is ook fruitig, dropachtig en zoet. De nasmaak is licht bitter.

Robe absolument noire, fin collet de mousse collant un peu. Nez complexe : cuir, torréfaction, animalité, puis douceur sucre caramel, pruneaux, baies sauvages. En bouche bien complexe aussi, commence torréfié, finis fruité et une pointe acide. Trčs épais, alcool assez discret toutefois malgré le taux.Attention ça reste fort. Bien !

Pours a deep dark reddish brown color. Aromas of dark fruit, caramel, and some spice. Flavors are dark cherries, plums, and some spice. Alcohol is really hidden in the deep flavors.

Aspecto: De color marrón oscuro, compacta, y turbia. Espuma no demasiado amplia, de color beige, con poca retención y escasos restos de encaje adheridos al vidrio. Aroma: Compleja e intensa. Destaca en ella un delicado aroma a malta tostada, con notas definidas de caramelo, azúcar y también afrutadas donde destacan las pasas y los frutos rojos acompańados de claros matices de miel. De forma más oculta se distinguen algunos matices de chocolate y ahumados. Sabor y textura: Con mucho cuerpo y peso en boca, y una carbonatación liviana es una cerveza de gusto dulce y afrutado, sin resultar demasiado alcohólica salvo por una sensación de calor en la garganta. Se reproducen prácticamente las mismas sensaciones detectadas en el aroma y finaliza con un toque amargo (en el que interviene el ardor alcohólico) y sequedad en el regusto. Una cerveza que no defrauda, al nivel de otras trapenses, pero por debajo de los mejores exponentes del género.
