LoFi (1678) - Göteborg, - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle at Tito’s cafe, Georgioupolis, Crete. Reddish copper with a smaller beige head. Aroma: fruity, also dried fruits, ripe pears, syrup, red berries. Taste: dried fruits (of both the dark and exotic kind), sweet, light boozy, ripe pears and red apples, cherries in liqueur. Quite full-bodied. A pretty nice quad that doesn’t feel too heavy in the Greek heat. Doesn’t compete with the better ones though.

Tognetta (391) - Campinas, BRAZIL - AUG 3, 2015
Marrom escura, espuma de média formação e pouca persistência, porém acho que o copo trapista atrapalha na consistência. Aroma bastante adocicado, toffe, caramelo, candy sugar aparente, licor de frutas vermelhas, alcoólica. Com o tempo a percepção de licor/ álcool intensifica. Paladar de dulçor intenso, toffe e candy sugar prevalecem, seguindo o aroma. Corpo licoroso, carbonatação quase zero. Aftertaste intenso e duradouro, adocicado, e nesse ponto que transparece o malte. Difícil dizer algo para melhorar, me agradou muito, apesar de faltar complexidade como as Rochefort e Westvleteren .

mauroruellas (485) - GETULINA, BRAZIL - JUN 19, 2015
Coloração acobreada,espuma bege belíssima,volumosa,cremosa e duradoura;aroma complexo apresentando vinho do porto,frutas vermelhas,ameixa,caramelo e notas amadeiradas;sabor potente tão complexa quanto o aroma,começando com o dulçor do malte passando por notas picantes e terminando com o calor do álcool lembrando um bom licor,corpo alto,baixa carbonatação,retrogosto adocicado levemente alcoólico. Ótima cerveja de abadia.

jamaty (1342) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Ambar clara, de escasa espuma. No me va el aroma, alcohólico y agrio. Ni el sabor, al que se añaden toques metálicos y demasiado azucarados. Y es totalmente incapaz de disimular el alcohol. Licor de cebada, y no precisamente bien hecho. No entiendo tantas buenas valoraciones.
