UPDATED: DEC 28, 2014 Smells great - fruity and sweet. Very good appearance. Tastes sweet, yet not overwhelmingly so. Great beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Certainly a fine fine beer, it’s drier (in the port sense, not the overhopped awful sense) but it has a perfect rich raisin-y palate and finishes in a balanced way. Slightly hoppy

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy, brown colour. Thin white head. Hints of vanilla, toffee, hints of coffee, dark fruits in the aroma. Toffee at first. Vanilla. Caramel. Nice spiceness in the middle. Dark fruits. Hints of raisins. Toffee in the end. Hints of vanilla, caramel and hints of fruits in the aftertaste. Quite nice mouthfeel. Sweetnes is in balance. Makes bit warm inside, but covers alchohol very well. Rather medium bodied, medium carbonated, very good beer.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Malty aroma of caramel, bread, toast, raisin, quite complex.
A bit darker than the 6, but still some red.
Taste is sweet, dark fruit, some dark chocolate even, with a rather thick texture.
Great Trappist beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bière très foncé avec une belle mousse blanche qui disparaît très rapidement. Au nez elle est très agréable. Au goût elle est très surprenante. Seul défaut, un arrière goût un peu sec.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a nice medium walnut color with a thicker off white head that lasts and lasts. There isn't any lace as it falls. The aroma is pretty interesting. There is a lot of bready malts and a great dark fruit presence. There is almost a juiciness that comes with the dark fruits. It's not as Belgian forward as I was expecting and I like it for that. The flavor is very very bready. There is a nice figginess to it. Lots of sweet malts and a fair bit of dark fruits. The mouth feel is a little lighter and quite effervescent. The aftertaste is lingeringly fruity and carries a lot of bready malts. It's a lot better than I thought it would be.
