4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark brown. Hazy and plenty if sediment. Off white medium head. Aroma is as advertised. Plenty if dark fruit. Very raisiny. Lots of plum. No booziness to speak of. A little bit of roastiness too in the aroma. Flavors are very similar but the black currant starts to come through more. Very clean for a quad. Easy to drink but still very complex.

Minha primeira impressão foi o álcool forte e a complexidade dos gostos. Uma trapista escura que pouco lembra outras, no bom e mal sentido. Gostei !

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From Brugge, somewhere. Appearance is a deep dark with an off white head. Aroma is of plums, raisins and some dark chocolate. Taste is of dark fruits, a touch of chocolate with a slight bready note at the end. Very smooth and drinkable. There’s a nice bit of spiciness in the finish. Very tasty.

Dark brown amber.
Sudsy, quickly disappearing head.
Tons of suspended black flake particulate even after handling and pouring gently.
Best before 30.01.2018
Drank on July 7th 2014
Not sure what went wrong here. Beer may have turned do to bad storage conditions between brewer and me.
I long awaited trying this beer with great expectations I gleaned from all the wonderful reviews.
But those expectations were quickly shattered as soon as I opened the bottle.
Bottle hissed nicely as cap was released but not much gas remained in the liquid and beer fell rather flat on carbonation.
Sweet, syrupy, plum, brandy, low bitterness.
I will have to re-rate this beer in the future.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a deep brown, with a massive khaki head that dissipates into a disc, leaving good lacing. Nose is dark fruit, black currants, and caramel. Taste is black currants, raisins, and dark fruit, with a lot of different flavors. Gets more complex as it warms. One of the best beers I have ever had.

This is probably the best beer I have ever had. But then there is Westvlettere which is still an unknown but also a lot more expensive.

Black colour, nice perception, sweet beer, no burned malt is percibed, fruit and sweet flavour is percibed. Really nice trappiste style beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep brown color, with a frothy tan head. Aroma is fruity with peach and apricot. Tasting you get a warming sensation from the alcohol, but its not much in the taste. Its malty and nutty.
