Floja de sabor. Cuerpo medio, bastante gas. Tras la primera sensación me deja un sabor como a sidra.

Patersoi (133) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2016
Pours murky mid brown with aggressive head. Classic trappist aroma. Less caramel and sweet malt/treacle than other trappists with a hint more bitterness. Alcohol ever present as expected. Some bitterness in the finish not expected.

ectuohy27 (956) - ESTONIA - APR 30, 2016
Ok, have to admit that this one doesn’t live up to expectations. The metallic-iron notes are overwhelming. Ok, yeast is nice, head is nice, appearance is nice, but when it tastes like licking a battery, something is wrong.

This beer got me by surprise, I just pulled something from the fridge without looking so I wasn’t expecting anything like that. Nice slightly beige head which stays, nice dark brown color. Aroma of dried fruits and caramel. The taste is full, strong and earthy. Great beer for winter times when you need to get warm.

Bottle from Jumbo. Clear amber/brown body with a thick off-white head. Lively carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of orange and stewed apple. Flavour of fig, caramel, liquorice and juicy apple. Thin to medium body with a slick texture. Light fizz. Sweet and well balanced.

AdolfoCC (108) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 16, 2016
Servida en un tulipán. APARIENCIA: de color cobrizo con destellos rojizos a contraluz, se observa cristalina y algo de actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color marfil, de buena retención, de burbujas compactas. AROMA: muy dulce; algo de azúcar mascabado, caramelo, notas de frutos oscuros maduros, ligeramente se aprecia el alcohol. SABOR: de entrada el dulzor de las maltas, caramelo, azúcares quemados, azúcar mascabado, seguido de frutos oscuros maduros y ligeras notas vinosas con presencia del alcohol en boca que no es nada agresivo; el retrogusto queda un amargor leve, con notas del lúpulo amaderado, seco y no astringente. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo ligero con carbonatación moderada baja. RESUMEN: Una buena cerveza apegada al estilo, con cierto grado de complejidad.
