A little too sweet for me. Bugger of a cork to remove. Little to no head or foam. Might go great with a steak.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light amber colored with copper hue with a creamy tan head. Fruity nose with notes of plum and grapes and a malty aroma. There is already a strong peppery alcoholic presence here. Sweet flavor and with a light bitter dry finish. Complex in the mouth with fruity notes of banana and plum, yeast and a hint of spices with clove, pepper and some vanilla. Thick body with low carbonation causes a nice creamy mouthfeel within a pleasent alcoholic warmth. Light sweet fruity aftertaste.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2015 Pours hazy muddy dark amber with surprisingly little topping. Mild esters and caramel on the nose. Flavor is rich with ripe fruit, sweet malt, and distinct banana. Best I’ve had since Rochefort 10. Love this style, and this nails it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle. Hazy, dark amber, thin off-white to tan head. Aroma is complex, It’s sweet, bubble-gum, plum, syrup and alcohol. Mouthfeel is low carbonation, oily, a bit sour and dry. Flavour is, again, really complex with a lot of different notes to it. In some way, it’s a little "over the top" for an average beer rater like myself. This is one for the experts and trappist afficianados. Would I buy it again? No, I don’t think so.
