4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma is very subtle for a strong Belgian ale. Hints of fruityness, but of course caramel and roast. The appearance is neat: dark red, even brown, with a small yellow white foam. The taste is delicious: perfect mouth, with long, very long aftertaste. A strong palate, even with this 9.2 % alcohol version.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rated from beer log from 2009 Belgian Trip.... 2000 vintage from Kulminator in Belgium... Aroma is phenomenal, dark brown caramel color, foamy tan head that dissipated immediately... Aroma is brown sugar, candi sugar, maple syrup... Flavor is breathtaking, more balanced than the 10, alcohol less prominent... Candi sugar gives it a fruity sweetness that is not cloying, dark fruits... Finish is more gentle, subtle than the 10, but maybe not as good... Very clean, outstanding beer

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle at home. Such a great bouquet, notes of yeasts, sugars, bread, plum and figs. The flavour is very well balanced. It starts off with a yeasty breadyness that fades to a fruity character and ends very sweet with a marzipan flavour. Mouthfeel is full with plenty of carbonation. Very complex and extremely tasty.

Jeg elsker trappistøl, men denne er bare ikke lige mig. Dufter for meget af skimmelost

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Soon as you pop off the cap the foam starts to rise so I had to pour quickly. The beer pours a hazy dark drown color reminiscent of cola with a medium creamy off white head. The aroma is dark fruits, raisins, dates, figs, alcohol, caramel, and some chocolate. The taste is caramel up front and rather sweet like candy. There is some alcohol presence that can be noticed but it does not take away anything from the beer. I also pick up the fruitiness and some breadiness as well. This is a world class beer that every beer drinker needs to try at least once.
