A very nice trappist. Fruity and malt-forward, similar in character to to their Quadruppel but with a lighter body and prominent oak character. Not worth the price but nice to try.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a burnt orange with a thin off white cap. The aroma is sweet, burnt sugars, caramel, alcohol, honey, dark fruits, candied oranges, oak. The flavour follows suit more or less, sweet, Belgian brewing sugars, candied orange, honey, caramel, alcohol. Mouth feel is a little too light to support everything going on, little oily. Still, solid, enjoyable, no complaints really.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared 11.2 oz.? bottle poured to snifters, showing a murky, deep brown color, with a light layer of tan foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The aroma was dark fruit, light spice, and substantial malt, with caramel & syrupy sweetness. With no indication in the nose, smoke and charred wood showed up unannounced in the taste to blend quite nicely with the former notes. Medium bodied, with soft carbonation and mellow alcohol, the finish remained sweet. Appropriately positioned as the final brew in our tasting session, as a tasty aperitif.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks bierkoning! Deep red, hazy color, small beige head. Aroma has berries, some oak and generic old wood, maybe light tartness, alcohol. Medium-bodied. Dark fruits, fruit sugar, vanilla, some backing alcohol. Finish has vanilla-candy and is a bit short. Otherwise quite nice sipping beer and barreling turns a boring Isid’or a bit more complex.
