Beautiful brown amber color, with creamy head. Excellent lacing. Not quite as good as Chimay, but definitely worth a try.

Cluniac (9) - - DEC 26, 2014 does not count
Beautiful ruby brown color. Fairly carbonated. Head is only half a finger. Initial taste is of a good brown/anber beer, but after taste is very flat, and i feel the total taste is quite bitter and not that complex. Aroma is also not that special. Overall a good beer, but not great, no where near world class.

ThirstyBird (1707) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2014
Pours a call brown with reddish highlights and a ran head. The smell is fruity, brown sugar with a vineous quality. The taste is as it smells with a pretty solid sweet call melt presence... Giving caramel, toasted malt, licorice and cherry flavors. Light+ in with average carbonation. Quite complex in flavor, this one.

rami_pl (41) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 20, 2014
Butelka, warka do 04 2016. Aromat karmelowy, owocowy (sliwki), lekko miodowy, alkoholowy. Piana dosc ladna ale bardzo szybko znikajaca, fajnie brudzi szklo. Piekna barwa - czerwono--mahoniowo-miedziana. w smaku nieco drozdzy, rodzynki, sliwki, karmel, alkohol. sumarycznie dosc slodki. odczucia w ustach nieco jak przy piciu porto czy likieru. Alkohol prawdopodobnie by sie bardziej ulozyl za jakis czas, az kusi, zeby odlozyc do lezakowania. Raczej pozytywne wrazenia, ale raczej tez nie bede powtarzal.

Red brown pour big tan creamy head. Aroma caramel, raisins, soy sauce. Tastes rye brown bread, solid bitter finish. Some alcohol heat. Creamy dry palate.

HippyHop (267) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
Pour is just beautiful: mahogany with a massive, pillowy tan cap that lasts forever and sticks to the glass like a clingy girlfriend at a party full of strangers (I don’t even know what that means, and I’m sorry Ray). Nose is lots of dark fruit (raisins, prunes), caramel, Belgian yeast, a bit of booze. Taste is moderately sweet, lightly bitter/sour, with a nice touch of bitterness on the finish. Booze is well-masked for 8%. Good stuff.

330cc bottle. Beautiful brown red colour with tan persistent foamy head. It is fruity and with nicely balanced sweetness/sourness. Very nice bruin abdij.

Boxereddy (152) - BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2014
Roodbruin bier met dunne beige schuimkraag. Duidelijk geroosterde mout in de neus. Licht mondgevoel met karamel en bessen in de smaak. Zacht bitterige afdronk.

Ulysse (127) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 8, 2014
Attractive tan head with abundant foam. Something in its aroma makes me think of molasses. Rich first impression. Then it’s suddenly gone. A dominant roasted malt component.
