This is a totally solid beer. Smells sweet, and tastes the same. Has a light head that compliments the color. I detect some very interesting tastes in this one. There is definently some taste of alcohol, but the 11.3 % kind of sneaks up on you. Yay beer! *after drinking the beer after it had warmed up....the alcohol was much more detectable.

Bottle: Lovely dark amber/brown with decent head and lacing. Nose begins with rasin and currant, some plum and maple with to many others to pick out. Palate is dry with overpowering malt. Candied, chocolate, and other sweetness fades into a wonderful finish with little alch. noticable. Enjoy

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2007 Pours dark brown with a foamy off-white head. Very sweet with aromas of prunes, nuts and alcohol. Has a strong, sweet finish for a while, then alcohol takes over. Full bodied. Medium carbonation. Very nice.

This heavy, brown ale has it all! And a lot of it all! A nice colour, creamy foam, spicy aroma, a thrilling malty taste and the famous long, extraordinarily well balanced aftertaste.

Jonathan3584 (323) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 28, 2005
Brown pour with plenty of sediment under a big, foamy white head. Aroma is of yeast esters from clove to banana, as well as coriander, dried fruits, etc. Flavor is immensely complex Belgian yeast esters and spices. Solid malt in the background. Drier than I expected from an 11% beer, especially after having had Rochefort 8, which I felt had much more residual sugars in it. Very floral in overall flavor impression. Excellent.

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - AUG 27, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2005 Very complex.... You don’t really taste the alcohol very much.... However, it will warm the sou and make you want to quive with excitementl. Poured a very dark brown with a 2 inch head that slowly faded to a medium cap that stuck around throughout the glass, awesome nice lacing. Smells of sweet spiced plums & prunes and a little cherry, candied sugar and a touch of caramel. Taste is sweet and slightly chocolatey, with dark fruits. Very rich and smooth. This is definitely a beer to savor. My highest rating to date...

What I like most about the Trappist’s is taht they seem to generate so complex beers with "just" hops, malt and yeast. I wery much like the "banana" in this beer, and I’m going to make some stuffed chokolade with this next week....
