4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
330ml bottle, poured into Leffe chalice. Colour was very dark copper, with auburn edges, opaque. One finger tanned head, very good retention, had a small scar on top of the head from the pour. Aroma was initally musty, notes of grape, caramel, malt, medicine and brown sugar. The first thing I noticed after pouring was that a could smell the beer from a lot further away than normal. Tasted medicine, brown sugar, molasses and strawberry. Booze was so well hidden I wondered if the decimal point was too far to the right. Texture was very smooth and almost moussy, very light body, perfection. Overall exceptional, aroma, look and mouthfull canít be improved. So far Iíve never had a better beer.

Could this be the second best beer in the world after Westvleteren XII ? YES.

0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, bottled on 16/9/2014. Clear, very dark ruby with a medium large, very creamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Beautiful! Lovely, sweetish-fruity aroma of plums, raisins, figs, cherries, cane sugar, nuts and a bit of red wine. Very intense, sweetish-fruity taste of prunes, raisins, figs, dates, toffee, nuts and dark chocolate. Long, minimally bitter, pleasant but rather alcoholic and warming finish with a bit of whiskey. Full body, phenomenally creamy, lively carbonation. World-class brew with a wide range of flavours, maybe unexpectedly a bit shy with its aroma. Fantastic creaminess and very round, though. Huge!

Brown color, taste of a lot of dried fruit/plums and a bit of spice, carbonated, a bit of alcohol but so little for how much there is. As noted by most, a world class beer. There are some Trappist beers I prefer but this is of the top. Pretty easy to find as well for me.

Dark brown, with a soap film head. Aromas are very pronounced breads, yeasts, malts, and grains. A moderately viscous mouth feel. There are plums, red fruit peels, and figs in the tastes. A definite alcohol presence in the back of the throat, especially the warmer it gets.
