UPDATED: JAN 6, 2009 Pours with a small, off-white head covering an extremely dark brown body. Aroma of raisins, mint (menthol), molasses, alcohol, and pitted fruit. Taste is very yeasty and malty with alcohol and raisins. Mouthfeel is syrupy with light bubbles.
Had this at Lost Abbey recently (early January 09), the brett has really come along and it is getting funky and sour...very cool beer.

Thanks to Bockyhorsey for this bottle. Darkening brown with small tan head. Caramel, raisins, dark fruits and syrup on the nose. Layered flavors of the same, with some fruitness and that nice Brett character mixed in as well. Very enjoyable beer than got better as it warmed in the Houston night. Thanks Bill, great beer.

Batch 2: 750 ml bottle on the train to Flossmoor Station. Pours a creamy beige head on a brown raisin body. Rich malty caramel toffee aromas with cherries, Belgian yeast, citrus, candied sugars, coriander, spices and surprisingly sour. Lively carbonation. Belgian funked flavors with a strong sourness. Cherries, brown sugar, rich malts, lots of dark fruits, figs, and earthy flavors that work together so well. Sour cherries and bakers chocolate in the finish. No noticeable alcohol. So tasty and fun to drink.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2008
750ml Bottle. Poured a deep brown with a thin beige head. The nose had a strong raisin and sweet scent. A big thick mouthfull followed. If Judgement Day was dessert, this was dinner.Carbonation was light. The raisins come through, but not too much of the sweetness. Almost had some hints of stout in it. Also tasted some caramel and burnt sugar, but the 10% was very well hidden, with just a light bite at the finish.

comes on strong with raisins, fig and sugared dates. simple spice and some more exotic fruits on the palate. a bit sweet. maybe sazz hops? it was great but the brett was a little less present that i would have liked given all the strong fruit sugars.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Bottle. Aroma is chocolate and nuts. Flavor is really spicy with peanuts, ginger and cocoa. I get some ripe fruits, like tangerine and papaya. Super complex with a prickly mouthfeel.

Sampled at Tomme Arthur Brewmaster dinner in Chandler AZ. Pours a blackish brown with a decent off white head. Aroma of rasins and yeasts. Flavor is rasins, spices, malt, and some crazy funkiness probably from the brett. I enjoyed this one.
