Beer 2 of O’brien’s Trappist Tasting 2/3/07. Dark brown pour with a small light white head. The aroma is rich and malty and sweet. The taste is sweet and strong, stronger then I’d expect from 7%. Solid Dubbel.

I am coming to appreciate how diverse and yet recognizable a trappist style really is. I enjoyed this one but it was a little thin with a bit of a harsh astringent taste at the back of the mouth. Perhaps I got an old bottle. It was good but not great.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2007 Dark brown color with big foamy head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Taste is complex with very strong flavor of red wine. Very good beer but there is something in the taste that puts it below the other Trappists for me.

Nice sweet malty aroma. Reddish brown color with a clumpy off white head. Very sweet wine-like taste with a little bit of bitterness. Fruity with a taste of banana, figs maybe? A very tasty trappist ale.

Small, irregular head which is not really sticky to the glass. Malty aroma with some banana in the background. Taste riminds me of spices. Carbonation is low. Short aftertaste.

I cant say i was that impressed with this, I guess i was expecting more. Wasn;t much in the arom just alot of malt. flavour was surprisingly bitter, and dry. Maybe a bad bottle?

Very attractive; dark and mysterious. The aroma is quite pleasant but lacks the complexity I would expect from a Trappist. Very agreeable flavours; fruity and malty, but without anything special to make it stand out from the crowd. A very good beer but not a world beater. I may have enjoyed it more had my expectations not been so high.

Dense, mostly lasting khaki head over an unclear chestnut-brown body. Nice lacework. Sweet malty aroma with a little fruit to it. Candysugar and sweet dark malt flavors. Lots of dark fruits too; raisins, prunes and plums. Modest hopbitterness. A bit cloying mouthfeel. Inviting and well made, but a bit too sweet for my tastebuds.
