Boutip (5951) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle: Poured a dark hazy brown color ale with a medium size brown color head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of oak and Cognac notes are well balanced with residual sugars and dry fruits notes of base beer. Taste is a nice mix between some dry raisins and residual sugar notes of based beers with light candy-like ester and some Cognac notes (I know there is no Cognac but that’s what the flavours made me think of). Body is about average with good carbonation and alcohol is slightly apparent. Very enjoyable and aging is not apparent at this point in time.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Murky amber pour with a smaller cream colored head. Oak, mild vanilla, and some dark fruit on the nose. Similar taste, but it doesn’t really explode. Very nice beer, but not elite.

Very hazy deep red - brown beer. Decent cream coloured head. Palate is light and soft, semi dry with mild carbonation. Soft dry wood, trace of vanilla. Sweet floral bubblegum. Mild malt cream. Whisper of sweet red berry fruits. Neutral finish. Nicely joined up. These oak aged La Trappes have a unique character.

Sammy (11248) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2013
In the potluck of ageing, this one didn’t succeed, despite $27 US pricetag. Boozy aroma, taste, though still smooth mouthfeel. Not very drinkable. Proof that price and score does not necessarily correlate.

Appearance: small unstable head, light amber beer. Nose: pleasant sweet scent, port.
