ogniskowicz (620) - POLAND - DEC 3, 2015
Szlachetny alkohol, ogromna ilość fenoli, stajnia, spocony koń, miód, suszone owoce, śliwki, guma balonowa, ziołowa nuta rozmarynu. Aromat urywa dupę. W smaku jeszcze lepiej. Początkowe muśnięcie miodem i rodzynkami robi świetne przetarcie przed eksplozją belgijskich drożdży. Niejeden braciszek zakonny w Belgii by pokiwał z uznaniem głową. Zaraz później feria suszonych owoców, lekka ziołowość i wspaniale rozwijająca się kwaśność. Wybitnie brettowa - stajenna, ale nie dominująca. Alkohol lekko grzejący podniebienie, bardzo dobrze wpasowany. Prawdopodobnie najlepszy "belg" jakiego dane mi było pić. Absolutna poezja.

ABT_S54 (351) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2015
75cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours a deep, dark brown with hints of garnet and a voluminous, beige head which shows a nice level of carbonation. Aroma is powerful malts, Belgian yeast dried fruits and booze. The taste is very complex with Christmas cake and almost herbal-like qualities with a fairly robust bitterness. A dense mouthfeel with good carbonation and perfect for the flavours contained within. Another masterpiece from The Lost Abbey.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a medium brown with an off white head. Aroma is fruity. Taste is sweet caramel malt, various dark fruits (especially raisins) bread dough and vanilla. A bit of sourness, a tongue coating sweetness and some alcohol also present. Interesting.

RickTheRick (858) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2015
Brune et opaque, la bière ne mousse que très peu et cette mousse se sauve promptement. Un bouquet très complexe constitué d’épices (muscade, cannelle) et de fruits secs (raisins) et d’herbes (romarin) est plutôt explosif lorsqu’on y plonge le pif. C’est l’aspect épicé qui ressort principalement en bouche. La bière est, à mon avis, trop gazée pour bien cerner toutes les couches de saveurs malheureusement et il y a une astringence désagréable en finale. Un peu décevant.

10/31/2009 11:53:19 PM Bottle from De Molen. Shared it with two friends from the bottle in train to Utrecht. Dark brown body. Really sweet and malty nose with some sour notes. Taste of fruits, sugar and malts. Notes of wood. Really enjoyable and great bottle to share. (This was consumed after a beer festival--so notes dodgy at this point.)

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Had 9/20/14. Tasting notes. Poured a deep brown in a snifter at home with some lively head. Aroma was solid with big spiced notes, caramel malts, sweet roll, baked bread, slight bubblegum. Taste was big malts with caramel, toffee, brown sugar, candy, bubblegum, spices, and dough. Big body, good carb. Vercy complex. Solid beer.
