Il colore è un tonaca di frate con cappello di schiuma persistente. L’aroma è un concentrato di frutta, malto e tanta abbondanza. In bocca è superba, pulita, equilibrata, calda, potente, secca, e con un finale che va oltre ogni aspettativa.

Smell: Banana & apricot Taste: Apricot & raisins Sweet sherry tone. It's nice, but I'm not sure I'm very in to the style...?

One of the Greats for sure. It pours a dark brown colour with an off white head. It hasa fruity sweet smell with a hint of herbs. It tastes sweet like plums and raisins with a slight alcohol after taste which is not bad considering its 11.5%. The mouthfeel is full with average carbonation. Overall, I can’t find much to fault.

Trappists are so wonderful, plum dried fruit, caramel in the back, pured dark brown nice thin head not too much co2. Lightly booze yet refreshing in its own way. A++++

TtV (71) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Deep brown with fast fading caramel coloured top. Aroma is heavy sweet. Taste is complex with sweetness at first and an aftertaste with some mild bitterness. When I drank this for the first time (some years ago) it was one of my favourites, but I don’t like it too much lately. Has something changed?

guzgorog (260) - FRANCE - SEP 18, 2014
Brune marron foncé, mousse noisette relativement génereuse. Nez excessivement complexe : gateau, marron, noisette, fruits secs, moka, raisin, caramel, vin de noix. Bouche très complexe de pudding, caramel, raisin noir, cognac, fruits secs. Vraiment impressionnant, très bon. Longueur en bouche assez exceptionnelle, gout evolutif. Une dégustation qui se prolonge pour un plaisir renouvelé à chaque gorgée. Corps puissant, crémeux, alcoolique, légère amertume, bonne carbonation. Une des meilleures bières du monde. Ca donne envie d’oublier une caisse à la cave pour la gouter à divers stades de sa maturation !

Pours with a greyish head. Smells and tastes a bit like grapes and raisins, almost slightly wine-like. The aftertaste is warmly alcoholic, and holds tones of caramel to go with it. My bottle had a thick layer of fibers on the bottom. This is one of the finest enjoyment-beers I?ve had this year!
