greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - OCT 28, 2006
Pours a murky dark amber, with a large amount of sediment. Small creamy head with medium to high carbonation. Aroma contains hints of chocolate and a mild spicy fruitiness. The flavor is very similiar and also contains other flavors such as vanilla and tofee. I was amazed at the alcohol level, because the beer goes done so smooth. I am not surprised this is one of the best beers in the world.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2007 One of the best belgian trappist beers. Brown colored with a old fashioned look. A round and soft taste with a long lasting finish.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - OCT 25, 2006
Bottled. Pours a cloudy dark amber with particles at the bottom and a big, lacy, creamy head on top. Aroma of raisins, toffee and alcohol. Creamy medium body with fine carbonation. The flavor start sweet with fruit, vanilla and toffee. Warm and spicy dry finish. The alcohol doesn’t seem well hidden to me, despite various posts to the opposite - maybe because I’m sampling a relatively young bottle? Wifely comments: This is *terrible* beer. Bad, bad, bad beer. (Prolonged grimace.)

missing (72) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - OCT 23, 2006
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.

MOFO (28) - Melbourne (Prev: Chch, NZ), AUSTRALIA - OCT 23, 2006
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.
