Scopey (8468) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2015 Bottle shared at Leighton’s. It pours cloudy mahogany brown with minimal head. The nose is rich, sweet, juicy, vinous, plum, prune, date, toffee, vanilla, jammy, toasty and wood. The taste is smooth, slick, sweet fruits, plum, date, light alcohol, umami, cola cubes, wine and wood win a smooth finish. Medium-full body and soft carbonation. Nice depth. Great aroma and it drinks rather well also.

JorisPPattyn (8283) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2011
Part of a comparative tasting of batches #4 and #5. Very thick, yellow-creamcoloured head, over fully hazy red-brown beer. More demure nose than the #4, but same ingredients: cocos, bit of vanilla, sweet/quite alcoholic. Little, nice, sourishness, on top of fruit, alcohol and milkchocolate. More balanced than the more severe #4, but maybe a tiny tad less complex. Thick bodied & creamy, alcoholwarming, slick. The #5 batch is very balanced, thanks a.o. to the slight, fruity acidity, but it would benefit from the incense aroma the #4 sports.

sebletitje (7430) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 24, 2011
Draft @ Delirium Monestarium, Brussels. 15cl LaTrappe chalice. Orangée, brumeuse, col beige, fin et crémeux. Arôme est phénoménal avec des notes de fruits et de chênes somptueuses. Bois est bien placé ace des légères notes de tanins et sucre candi. En bouche, bière avec belle balance. Note de chêne et de bois qui ressortent bien. Malt bien en avant avec un caramel sucré et en retrait note biscuité. Fruits noirs donnant à la fois une impression de pomme caramel, avec raisins, prunes, note de sucre candi. Une bière somptueuse sous tous les points, et à 10% reste d’un pure plaisir à déguster.
