COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed according to the ancient abbey recipes. A beer brewed with love, is drunk in the right mind.

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - NOV 4, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2010 I cannot fault the appearance: it has a huge head in a chalice and a dark brown body. The aroma is soft barley and a whole lot of malt. The taste is dark syrup, heavy alcohol and sugar-induced barley, a bit of a mess and unfortunate at that. Yet, still drinkable in all its fake glory. I think it’s a good Belgian ale, but certainly not a great one.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2010
Big brown coarseish head. Hazy opaque brown body is just barely translucent red. Spicy papery caramel aroma with milky licorice and chocolate notes. Vinegary-acidic and sweet spicy chocolate taste with peppery notes. Thin body. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dry watery peppery chocolate aftertaste fades very quickly. Infected? Or just a failure? Hard to say. Must rerate. (0.33l bottle, de Biertempel, Brugge.)

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2010
Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of fruit, and some other hints, maybe some spices, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and a hint of hops with a nice bittersweet finish.

RichardW (1461) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2010
Bottle, BoE. Faint banana and licquorice aroma, leading to a sweet, fruity taste. Doesn’t have the heavy body I expected, in fact there was a very slight metallic hint early on, but this soon disappeared, becoming almost liquid fruit cake. A ruby to black appearance, with a faint tan head, rich, warming and satisfying.
