Bottle, 33cl. Pours dark brown with a foamy, beige head. Coffee, toffee, malty, fruity easters aroma. Nice, sticky, rich flavour with caramel, coffee, toffee, fig, plums, raisin, creaminess to the mouth-feel. Dry and bitter logn finish. Balanced and nothing bad to say. Perhaps.. Nope, just good Belgian ale.

Reddish brown with nice tan head. Full roast aroma very pleasant, and a backbone of cedar. The dried fruit flavors set this apart from all other inferior brews. Very rich coating mouthfeel. Awesome brew.

Serapac (110) - CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle, Le Vieux Saint-Josse, Brussels. One of my early favourites among the Trappist bears and Belgian ales more generally. Although I moved on since, this is still a very nice double. Reddish brown, beige head, dominated by roasted malts, cloves, wood. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Being brewed within the walls of a Trappist abbey on a small scale under the supervision of the monks is a good thing. This beer wowed me.

Neorej80 (93) - - AUG 31, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2014 Big foamy head. Aroma of pine and roasted malts but also chocolate. Really dark and a big almost white head. High carbonation. Pretty bitter and full roasted flavour and wood. Dry and also candy, coffee and some bitter hops and fresh dried red fruit flavours. Thats sounds like a lot, but it is all well balanced. Bitter dry aftertaste, nice!

This is the beer that made me fall in love with Trappist Beers alltogether actually. It was love at first sight and smell. Beautiful thick, dark, & heavy but light. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,33 l in Westmalle trappist glass. Dark red brown colour, clear liquid. Fruity nose as well as aroma. Begins slightly sweet and ends with dry bitterness. Somewhat creamy texture. Medium to full body. Lively carbonation. Great beer.
