3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle"18,08,09". Pours out a muddy light brown, quite effervescent in nature to start with, then the head quickly diminishes. It rests with absolutely no head. A noticeable amount of dark sentiment floats in suspension at the lower inch of the beer. Quite opaque in appearance. Very little notice of aroma qualities initially strikes me, so I let the beer warm. Soon a pleasant earthy (little musty) sweetness begins to waft from the beer. Notes of the underlying alcohol and hints of saw dust and cellar start to come to the forefront. Also honey sweetness and cigar/pipe smoke with oak like qualities make there presence felt. Fine bubble dance over the tongue, creating a small stinging sensation on the palate. This creates the sensation that this medium bodied beer has airy lightness to it. Middle, has dark bread notes, subtle candied fruits, along with a sweetness (caramelized sugar in the best sense of it), that lingers into the smooth refreshing finish. Quite impressed. "Day 5 fall out, first week of class"

Rated based on notes taken 25 June 2012 -- This is a solid trappist brew. I really need to buy some to age and see how well they do.

It pours a cloudy brown with white head. It has basement and earthly aromas. There is also a hint of cheese. It has a earthly character to the taste with herbal tendencies. It is dry on the palate.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served @ 55f in a goblet. Pours a lively dark brown with a short lasting white head. Soft caramel and herbal aromas. Flavours bring caramel, dates, brown sugar, and earthy herbs. Despite the sweet flavours the finish is not cloying and almost off-dry. Probably helped by the effervescent carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. A catch-up rating. Haven’t had this one for some time. Light sugary fruity nose, small herbal notes, toffee, yeast. Medium reddish-brown color, and a ring of sediment at the bottom of the glass. Thin, gentle fruity initial, matured and delicate, yeasty, light cocoa. Very earthy and complex. Solid, sweet, and not as overpowering as the 8 and the 10. Somehow it all belnds and tastes just right. Love it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Marrón oscura. Espuma media nada duradera. Muy muy carbónica. Aroma ligeramente frutal, y algo ahumado. Predominio del dulce, caramelo y frutas. Muy bebible. Pero final algo decepcionante, le falta contundencia.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a Duvel glass. Clear honey brown with a medium-sized soapy head with champagne like bubbles. Nose has muscat, fennel, plum and dried apricot. Active carbonation at first but becomes flatter the longer it sits. Great complex fruit flavor with a little bit of earthiness detectable as well. Taste is sweet with a little bit of pepper and spice. Gets sweeter the longer it sits as well, with candy sugar standing out on the finish.
