330ml bottle. Aroma is a little alcoholic. Dark brown color, with off white head that liners well. Malty flavor, plum flavor, alcohol. Full bodied, but appropriate. Overall, a delicious Trappist beer!

Toujours intéressant de revisiter un classique intemporel, surtout lorsque la bière a quelques années dans le corps. Ce millésime 2011 offre une mousse assez onctueuse qui se pose sur une bière brune aux reflets rubis. Au nez, des noisettes grillées et des prunes confites sont supportées par une vague d’éthanol bien présent. En bouche, l’amorce de la madérisation est très discrète, ce qui confère un goût fruité plus prononcé à la bière. Raisins secs, fruits rouges et malts joufflus sont enveloppés par une chaleur alcoolisée prenante. Elle a encore beaucoup de corps et de goût, une grande bière.

Bottle pour split. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a foamy head. Beautiful beer. Subtle dark fruit, raisin and malt aroma. Delicious smooth flavor. A warming beer with the higher alcohol, but it’s practically non existent in the taste. Couldn’t get enough of this stuff. Definitely going to track more down. Incredible.

330ml bottle. Aroma of malt, wood, fruit and sweet caramel. Flavour is alcohol, brown sugar, vanilla and spice. A brown coloured ale with a large off white head and a strong and complex flavour.

Ottimo aroma, corposa, alcolica quanto basta. Una gioia per il palato. La migliore birra che ho bevuto.

Nez: toffee, chocolat, pruneaux Bouche: sucre, caramel, blé, chocolat, alcool. C’est bon mais sa réputation est à mon sens très surfaite!

Dark beer with a tall head. Complex and spicy taste with a persistent aftertaste. Warming alcohol which does not compromise the taste.

BBE 1/2018 bottle. Pours clear with bits of yeast sediment. Brown head and reddish brown color. Nose has malts, licorice, raisins and hints of pure alcohol. Mouth is a balanced sweetness with just a little bit of bitterness and a complex thick texture. Finish is long and smooth. Overall a very kick-ass beer after a little under 2 years of maturing. I’m glad I have more of these in the cellar.
