4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured into a tulip glass. Brown with red hues, two fingers of dirty white head. Solid, it is not going anywhere after many drinks.
Smells like wet straw, ripe apricot, orange and molasses.
Tastes of more ripe fruit and alcohol; and more complex than I can describe.
Medium body with almost no carbonation.. borderline syrupy.
One of the best beers out there. Always enjoyable and tough to beat.

Pours a murky brown. Earth and hay aromas. Very spicy and a touch of brown sugar to compliment.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
2 bottles opened and tested in parallel in May 2015. one new purchased in the U.S. with a 2018 best before and one 8 years old purchased in Belgium with a 2011 best before date. The older has less head and is darker. Old has strong port and dried fruit aroma. New has minimal aroma but some similar notes. Old: plums, dried fruit, molasses. Slightly sweet and slick finish. Low carbonation. New: drier an similar notes but much less pronounced. Some more hoppy bitterness detectable but not strong. More effervescent mouthfeel. Old is significantly better and the basis of the review.

Bottle from Saveur Bière. Froathy, thick head. Coke-brown body. Smells of syrup, caramel, citrus, almond. Bubbly fresh taste of plum, syrup, apple, salt, caramel and almond. A very lean sweet and bitter aftertaste which balances out the hight amount of alcohol. An amazing beer that never disappoints but took a surprisingly long time to actually rate!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy, dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Sweet malty aroma of dried fruit, caramel, yeast and alcohol. Sweet malty flavour of dark fruit, liquorice, caramel, yeast and some bitterness with a dry, warming alcohol finish. Full body with an oily texture and fizzy carbonation. A complex and well balanced beer. Great for sipping.

Une des meilleures bières qu’il me soit donnée de boire. Il manque juste une longueur en bouche et ce petit quelque chose qu’apporte certaines autres trappistes de même calibre pour atteindre la perfection.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, bottled 8/5/2013. Clear, very dark ruby with a huge, creamy, almost stable, tan head. Pleasant, fruity aroma of figs, plums, raisins, cherries, toffee and nuts. Slightly vinous. Fantastic, sweetish-fruity and vinous taste of cherries, figs, plums and raisins with a bit of port. Long, medium bitter and hoppy finish with a bit of warming alcohol and coconut. Full body, very creamy and smooth mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Wow, fantastic beer! Very rich and harmonic, not overly sweet and with a nice hoppy finish as a counterpart that lasts long on your palate. Very satisfying!
