bjerkeaa (180) - NORWAY - FEB 14, 2014
Golden/amber pour, with a big fizzy white head. Nice belgian lacing. Aromas of mild spices, sort of bland compared to other trappist beers. Som citrus as well. (First whiff, I get aromas of wet dog, but that particular smell went away fast). Nice spiciness in the taste, with some fruityness to boot. A mild bitterness in the finish. A bit flat carbonation, and palate is somewhat dull.

poech73 (238) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2014
08022014. Bière ambrée à la robe rousse avec un col aérien mais large. Au nez: caramel suret, une petite pointe d’amertume fortes effluves de levure. En bouche: pas mal d’effervescence pour un corps fort malté assez rond mais avec un relent du bouquet épicé (coriandre, girofle cardamone) + alcool. Fin légèrement acre avec une amérisation fine sur la longueur avec un arrière goût boisé comme dans la triple. Eau chimay ( calcaire) et levure aussi caractéristiques. Moelleux, légèrement doucereux. Qualité/prix décevant pour une dégustation aux accents rustiques, pesants (manque de finesse pour une Chimay). Mouais...

MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2014
Fresh light golden colour, clear with a nice frothy white head. The taste is dominated by wheat aromas, citrus and a slight bitterness. High drinkability but pretty average overall.

rok1024 (1189) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - FEB 8, 2014
Dark orange appearance, some sedimentation, slightly hazy, medium and lasting head. Malty aroma, sweet and slightly sour. Palate is not impressive for a "Trappist". Overall good Belgian strong ale.

Amberkleurig met mooie schuimkraag. Weinig aroma en matig van smaak. Gebrouwen in Chimay maar de brouwer had daar een slechte dag?

SamTheBarrel (522) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2014 750ml corked and caged bottle, poured into a Mont des Cats Trappist glass. Appearance is opaque orange with a medium sized frothy beige head, that left a little lacing when reduced. Aroma of apricots, herbs, spices and dough. Flavours of apricots, herbs, spices, lemon peels and a hint of caramel Tase is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, smooth texture and average carbonation. Even though brewed at Chimay, Mont des Cats is surprisingly different in the flavour to Chimay’s Cinq Cents. Overall a pleasant Belgian Stong Ale.
