Sweet cocoa, appley fruit aroma. Flavor is much of the same. Light Tan head. Mahogany color. Alcohol is present in the flavor but not the alcohol bite that I detest. Hidden extremely well for 11.3%. Great sipping brew.

(on bottle)taking the last bottle from my crade, I felt sade. it´s taken me some two years to drnk that crade and now it´s all over. I also felt as if something was missing. While drinking the beer I came upon it; I never rated the goddawn beer!! So here goes. A very nice dark belgian brew,; hazy through to murky caramelbrown colour. Very intense nose; mostly bready and roasted flavours, some burned figs too. Taste was dominated by carameld nd fudge, the forestfruits are there, but only in the finish, witch is a tad too alcoholic for my liking.

Bottle. Dark brown with fluffy tan head that lasts throughout-- really fine carbonation. Clear with a bit of yeast sediment. Balanced nose of dark malt, dark fruits, alcohol, toast, yeast, and bitter chocolate or toffee. Flavor is a wonderful balance of deep, rich malt and fantastic yeast, with a present, but not overwhelming, alcohol warmth. Finish is sticky-sweet and yeasty, like a good dark bread. Outstanding stuff, and well worth the price!

One of my favorite beers. Strong, rich,, deep and complex flavor. It goes great with any meal I’ve tried - mostly grilled hamburgers or steaks. Highly recommended!

When you have some beers in stock and you want to rate number 200 at ratebeer then I choose one of our beer royalties the belgium trappist. This trappist has a beautifull taste it is a real king. Despite the results of the footballmatch Italy - Holland 3:0 it was a perfect beer.

A dark cherry brown color with some beige head. Nose is yeast, dark malt, brown sugar, and some alcohol. Taste is a nice mix of caramel malts, vanilla, dark fruit, and yeast. Very complex. Very solid.

Excellent dark brown body, light brown head, leaves an intricate lattice down the inside of your glass. Deep, pleasant malty ale with hints of chocolate, raisin, & spices. A must for any high-grav enthusiast.
