3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,33 l bottle. Dark cloudy amber in the glass. Small head. Fresh berriefruits on the nose. Starts heavy, nearly oily, resin, dark fruits with sweetness, belgian yeast. But also alcoholic. Present malt in the background. Complex as expected. I enjoyed it a lot.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a Trappist glass and maybe it was my pouring skills but I was somewhat disappointed at the lack of head. However, it was a nice hazy bronze/copper color with some long lasting lacing throughout. The aroma was pretty amazing. Malty, caramel and some fruits. The taste was not complex but still nice. I couldn’t really put my finger on the flavor but it seemed like a mix of caramel and a mild lingering alcohol taste yet sweet and without a bitter aftertaste. I found it to be smooth and easy to drink. It’s a great beer overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Un gout corsé prononcé, une amerture très agréable, une touche de caramel et un alcool qui vien sublimer le tout.
Un final plutôt amère .

Bottle at home. Beautiful hazy Amber colour, nicely lacing beige creamy head that lasts. Nose and taste with caramel, toffee, dried fruits like figs and dades and almond: barley-wine like complexity in the sweetness. Nicely spicy and herbal Belgian yeast character alongside really smooth (!) malts. Finish is sweet but short. No big alcoholic punch despite the high abv. Carbonation is too high for my liking (typical La Trappe), good body, soft mouthfeel.

Tasting blind from 33 cl bottle.
A flowery aroma, with alcohol and almonds.
The clear red beer has a small brown head.
The sweet taste gives a warm feeling inside.
