4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow. I really liked this one. Poured from a bottle; a nice, rich dark-red-brown with a prominent, moussy head. Smells of molasses, chocolate malts -- and the palate is amazing; smooth, rich, and substantial, like good chai or a great milkshake. The taste is elegant; malts up front and then a close with a hoppy bitterness that cleans the palate.

Light brown coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small off-white head. Herby and malty balanced aroma. Full palate. FInish is bitter, light herby but with a rather short flavour. Not bad.

Bottle, 33cl. Pours dark translucent mahogany, with decent slightly beige head. Sweet malts, chocolate and caramel to the nose, and similarly rich on the palate with the addition of ripe fruits. Very well balanced and blended, and overall a very quaffable Trappist beer.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark amber to red with a thick foamy to creamy head with good retention. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and a bit alcohol. Wonderful taste that starts bitter and hoppy with sweetness and malt kicking in just a bit later, very well balanced. Finish is long, dry and bittersweet. Good carbonation and a creamy texture. Love this.

Mild but complex aroma of sweet spices, toasted nuttiness and a little warming alcohol. The flavour also has alcohol and some gentle caramel and toastedness. Warming and nicely complex but a little dull.
