Definitely a strong brew. Smooth, Malty, and very complex. I could sense the alcohol coming through as the beer got a bit warmer. I found the particles floating around rather interesting. Very unique.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cold 330ml bottle: Pours a dark opaque brown color with a thin layer of frothy tan bubbles and some lacing. Aroma and taste are of roasted malts, dark fruit, molasses and floral hops. Creamy texture, prickly carbonation and full bodied. Ending is dry and bittersweet with some alcohol bite and sour notes.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2006 Best damn beer I íve ever had. Iíve had a lot of types from all over the world. Iíve not yet had Westvleteren, but I find it hard to believe anything can be better than this beer. This is a shining jewel in the beer world. It is the Holy Grail (or is that íHoly Ale?).
Best damn beer Iíve ever had!!!

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
33cl bottle - pours beautifully dark, hazy/yeasty reddish brown, with a gradient like quality from the top down that is actually sort of stunning to look at, topped by a thick tan head that dissipated about halfway through the glass. Aroma of dark fruits and malts with a significant vinous quality to it. This is followed through in the taste, with the edition of an earthy spiciness about midway. The mouthfeel is beautiful, very heavy and silky. Superbly complex, so smooth and rich, and you canít taste the alcohol at all, which, at 11.3% should be considered a feat of magic. Maybe it is. Who knows what these monks get up to. Very potent, radiant even. Deserving of itís place as one of the best beers in the world. Amen.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the best beers that I have ever had. Malt aroma of cookie and light molasses/caramel. Head was off white full lasting. The body was cloudy brown and had tiny to small particles in it very nice. The best I have ever had so far.
