3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 30 cl.
Nice dark brown coloured beer with a stable creme coloured foam that slowly declines to a thick layer. The aroma contains load of esters, bananaís , raisins, fruits and slight caramel. The first taste impression is sweet but not sticky. Afterwards hints of caramel and chocolat come through. The aftertaste is somewhat spicy and a little sweet. Although the Zuster is a heavy quadrupel it has a very good drinkability.

Bottle 30 cl. Pours an orange brown with a small off-white head and an aroma of ripe prunes, raisins, nuts and dark malts. The taste is dominated by alcohol, but in a nice way, with notes of roasted malts, both ripe and unripe fruits, liquorice, yeast and caramel. A nice strong beer.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2010 Bottle, KBC í10. Only slightly hazy copper color, medium off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, raisin, caramel. Quite sweet taste, big malty background. Bit on the sweet side for me, but overall a good brew.

Bottle: Poured a black brown with a thin off white head. The aroma is fruits and licorice, very pungent to the point that it made me turned off. The taste however was a nice aged fruit and sweet sugary caramel malt. The alcohol was well hidden.

Somewhat a beer pretending to be a trappist. Elements are there but it comes out mostly disjointed. Malt and licorice dominates. All in all not bad ... if only had more balance.

Bottle. Dark brown color. Malt and licorice in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with licorice and warming alcohol. Tasty, but unrefined.

A dark, almost black colored beer. Itís a little hazy. It has a beige foamy head. A malty aroma with dark fruits. The taste is some sweet, some bitter and also a little spicy. Some roasted malts. Itís in the style of a dark trappist. You donít taste the 10% alc.
A good beer, of new and smal brewery
