330ml brown bottle. Colour is reddy/chestnut brown. Sparse tan head, light covering of tight bubbles on the surface. Raisin, fig newtons and dark malt with some sweetness in the aroma. Flavour is malty with more raisins and brown sugar. Malty finish with a bit of a nutty note, faint yeast. Remarkably mild carbonation, medium body.

33cl bottle@home in Trappist glass@approx 8 degrees C. Pours dark brown with sufficient light brown head. Aroma of malt, caramelised malt and fresh hay. Deep, dark taste with roasted malt, honey and faint tasty liqourice, leaving with a pleasant bitterness in the aftertaste. Gets better as it warms up. Good stuff...the best I have had from La Trappe so far.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Very dark brown color, thin ivory head cover, 3 or 4 lace dots. Aroma of dark malt and dried fruit. Taste is strong carbonated malt that adds dried fruit-cake fruit and prunes in the palate, then growing significantly into a finish that is already semi-sweet, not requiring much in the way of hops. A big-bodied brew, dark and rich and a little heavy for my palate.

Pours a dark brown with big head. Rather big nose for a double. Malty, toffee, herbs, spices, a hint of boose, funk and belgo yeast. Medium+ bodied palate, balanced and complex with medium+ finish. Superior to the Chimay Rouge I had earlier. Very good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Ales by Mail. Pours clear amber with a large, dense and frothy beige head. Lovely aroma, lots of candied fruits, brown bread, toffee, Belgian yeast. Medium sweet flavor with rich bready malts, caramel and toffee, ripe semi-dark fruits, dates, slight toasted grains and butterscotch. Medium bodied with average to lively carbonation. Rather nicely balanced on the finish with toasted candi sugars, understated Belgian yeast, bready malts, slight alcohol warmth, ripening fruits, caramel. An excellent example of the style. So rich yet so drinkable.
