4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A deep brown with garnet hi lights. A big foamy head like merange and appears to be nicely carbonated.
Sweet malt with a nice fruitiness about it.
Sweet malt taste like the aroma, with candied sugar, plums and dates. I’m not picking up much in way of hops. Bitter at end with a dry finish.
Body wise I thought it felt a little thin around the edges but I’m not overly concerned.
A very good tasting beer that gains in flavor as it warms. Nice lacing from the always present head.
I deem this beer good to the last drop.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Being Flemish, I grew up with this beer, as in my grandparents’ days it was practically the ’only’ trappist ale available in Flanders; the prototype of the ’dubbel’ genre and a classic among the Belgians. Tanned, mousse-like, delicately lacing foam, colour deep mahogany, misty; aroma of caramel, walnuts, banana, cloves, coffee grounds, liquorice, hazelnut paste, fondant; taste begins subduedly fruity with a subtle hint of citrus, quite sharp carbonisation, after which a deep caramel- and nut-like maltiness follows, perhaps a bit ’stiff’ and harsh when young, dryish, almost woody, yeasty with spicy accents, mineral-like touch, aftertaste leafy and somewhat peppery hops, lightly toasted, long and dry without any trace of cloying sugar, thirs-quenching. Becomes remarkably softer with ageing and I took this into account when scoring. Also one of the few trappists available on draft, then smoother and less ’harsh’ and in my opinion more rewarding than a young bottle. Such variations in taste depending on age and means of storage and serving only add to its potential.

Flaska systemet - mörkbrun med ljusbeiget skum. Doftar lite badhus och lite friskt. Brända toner och ganska så besk.
