Citrus, dark fruit aroma. Dark brown with subtle off white head. Orange citrus and rind undertones. Some spice, but mostly fruity. Very tasty, not overly sweet, but great complexity.

Hazy dark brown brown in the glass with a thin white head. Fruity aroma especially an orange note, also some vanilla and other spice. Smooth, rich mouthfeel. Nutty malt and dried fruits on the palate.

Matts_Property (830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
On tap at Bottleworks. Pours a clear dark brown with a red tint and a tan head. Aroma of candied dark fruits, molasses, yeast, caramel and roasted malts. Flavour is sweet roasted malts, caramel, molasses, yeast, more caramel and dark fruits. Full bodied, complex. Nice.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Experienced on tap in a whiskey snifter. The beer pours a caramel color to medium brown, with a white head. The nose shows surprisingly prevalent Trappist yeast esters, almost to the point of seeming flawed. These same traditional flavors also come close to dominating the flavor profile of the beer, coming off as rough when compared to the noticeable but balanced yeast profile of iconic Belgian names. Alcohol adds depth, but the beer seems too dry and yeast-forward to be enjoyable, or comparable to the most sought after examples. Overall, not quite was what expected, and somewhat disappointing.

Just before cracking this gem I shared a bottle of Orval with my girlfriend - I thought that was a musky Belgian ale...but man, this sets the bar. Stored since ’03, this beer has reached a supremely round mellowness that really brings out the big earthiness in the yeast and curbs the edgy alchohol. There is a wonderful breadiness here - something fermented like French - mixed with an extremely smooth buttery hazelnut character. The yeast really comes through a touch sweet - apples or currant. A sprinkling of hops give the fruit a fresh quality - very contrary to the musky yeast and malt. The mouthfeel here is unbeatable, just gooey and sweet with that hoppy freshness. An excellent winter ale, but hell...I loved this and it’s spring.

Kosmokrator (813) - ITALY - JAN 23, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2015 Color mogano leggermente nebuloso con un soffice velo di schiuma beige poco persistente. Aroma nocciolato, speziato e caramellato; gusto dolciastro con note di toffee, zucchero abbrustolito, lievito e un finale più amarognolo e debolmente luppolato. Corpo medio-lieve, abv poco percepibile, effervescenza vivace (anche troppo), discretamente bilanciata. Una buona birra invernale che necessiterebbe di un pizzico di intensità in più.

Dark purple colour with off-white head. Aroma of roasted barley malts, yeast, plums, raisins, caramel and spices. Similar are flavours, with sweet fruity taste. full body, low carbonation, alcohol is well hidden. Really has 10% abv.?

2003 - HEAD. An unbelievable head. Great plum colored beer with fruit aroma. A really well balanced beer that brings out so many different flavors. Body warming and enjoyable.
