A great example of a stong Belgian ale. Very smooth (for such a high ABV) with a wonderful aroma of malt and figs with just a hint of some sharper oak. The flavor is predominately malt sweetness with a caramel back note. A great beer but expensive and to sweet for me to drink regularly.

Consumed from bottle, in Brugge. Served in correct glassware, and at the right temperature. Chocolate undertones, with rich fruity body to it. Purchased a few bottles to take home with me. I would consider joining the monestary in Belgium in order to be able to drink this on a more frequent basis.

kopestes (164) - Braine l’Alleud, BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2006
Just opened a bottle at home. Very dark brown almost black with creamy head. Fruity nose, strong body. Astonishingly easy to drink when you take in count level of alcohol. Probably among the best beer of this kind in the world.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2006 Dark brown with scents of dried fruits, a little bit of chocolate, toffee, and alcohol. Pours with a tan retaining head. First taste.... raisins, malts, alcohol, something else... ah yes, delicious. Very smooth. This is a favorite of mine.

Delicious aroma of green apple and raisins, among other things. Raisin colored, heady, and complex. Fizzy carbonation with each sip. Very Nice.

This beer has an amazing aroma of plums, cherries and chocolate. Very intense but enticingly smooth flavour. Rich chocolate malts with spicy fruit.Perhaps not worth the $12 spent on it as there are many great beers out there for half that but still very much worth a try, even if it is a one off. The high alcahol content is warming. More of a winter beer but certainly one to savour. The only bad thing is the appearance with a fair amount of sediment.

Nice toffee and mildly fruity aroma. Deep toffee brown color, slighlty reddish, with fantastic creamy head. Mildly sweet with a slight butter toffee flavor, medium complexity with decent finish.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2007 33 cl bottle dated 060710. Pours a deep, somewhat hazy burgundy with a thick, creamy light tan head that lasted through the entire glass with excellent lacing. Strong aroma of plums, raisins and malt. Flavor is sweet with all of the aromas also present in flavor. There is a warming alcohol finish not unlike the finish on a glass of brandy. Really, really good !

The best beer I have tried so far. Amazingly smooth, yet full of rich complex flavors. Way too expensive though.
