The very full-bodied ale has a very nice head, beautiful color, and excellent palate. The taste is unique, with strong hints of fruit, and generally strong tastes overall. The malt is superb and the hops are well balanced in this very strong brew.

Bottle 33 cl.
Dark, with a medium light tan head. Both aroma and taste has a beautiful complexity. Well rounded, and perfectly balanced. The alcohol taste brings an additional warmth to the taste.

Uma cerveja parruda, encorpada e de sabor intenso. Boa para tomar em um jantar. Acompanha bem carne vermelha ou uma pizza Premium. Năo dá para tomar muitas.

Great beer, pours dark brown with a tanish head. Sweet tastes of caramel, fruits, and brown sugar with hints of spice. Very easy to drink for the ABV.

Great, dark Belgian Trappist ale. Dominated by dark fruits. Well-balanced, not overly sweet.

No es mucho lo que se puede agregar a todo lo que ya han dicho de esta cerveza... Una trapense con todas sus letras.

(Drinking date: 17 March 2014) Very dark brown colour. Small layer of fast disappearing beige foam. Lovely sweet aroma of dark ripe fruits, pear, cola and liqorice. However the aromas could have been more powerfull. Sweet taste, you taste dark fruits, alcohol and liqorice. Sweet in the mouth, bitter aftertaste. Not very nice aftertaste, bit of liqorice-bitterness. The alcohol really burns in the mouth and throath, during drinking it as well as when you swallowed it. Long warm feeling stays behind. The beer is too thin and the carbonation is too heavy. Overall, I expected a lot more of this beer. It is a good beer, but in my opinion there are a lot better quads. I think this beer has a bit too much sweet-liqorice in the taste. It has a bit too fake-sweetness. It is a good beer, but not wonderfull in my opinion. It also is too thin. I don’t say that it is a bad beer, but in my opinion there are a few things that could be better in it. That’s why I give it the total score of 3.7 (I think because everyone gives this beer such high scores, you are prejusticed. Just like with the Westvleteren 12. It can be / are good beers, but there are so much other excellent beers!)

Mörkbrun med stort ljusbrunt skum. Doftar och smakar ganska mycket söt malt! Finns inslag av russin och torkade frukter!
