COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Red-brown with nice tan head. Loads of sediment. Fruity aroma... Dry, fruity, and lightly sweet. Doesnít seem as polished as ales from Rochefort. Iíd prefer it will a little less carbonation. Even so, still a very good beer.

Canít say enough about this one. Love it! Rust pour with tan creamy lasting head, nice lacing, large particles/muce sediment, brown sugar smell, creamy texture, soft carbonation, sweet with some fruity tang hints of orange, smooth. I have a slight bias, one of my favorites.

Another good Trappist here. Pours a dark hazy brown with a small head. Aroma is fermented fruits, candied malts And that trademark Belgian spice. Falvor is ripened fruits, mild spice and rich malts. has a mildly sharp finish.

FastEddie (230) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 25, 2007
Reddish cloudy amber color. Light aroma with apparent malt. Ample head that goes down to lace. Good level of carbonation, and like every other trappist Iíve had, the flavor is very refined, complex, but not overpowering. A very pleasing product indeed.

Bottle. 11.2 FL OZ. A very dark red color with large tan head that quickly disappears. Sweet aroma of malt, prunes, and cherry. Full bodied with a dry texture and a bit of a metallic finish. Initial flavor is sweet with a moderately bitter finish. Excellent.

Dark brown with hints of red in my chalice with a small beige foam for a head. Candied fruit nose. Best before date of 9-5-08, but I donít know what that means wrt the age of this bottle. I had an older bottle not long ago and I think I prefer it younger. Lots of bubbles on the tongue. Fruity with lots of grape, berry, raisen and fig newton. There is an everpresent bright sugar sweetness to it that is tempered somewhat by the yeast.Very nice trappist ale.

tykjen (182) - FlorÝ, NORWAY - APR 21, 2007
Quality beer from the monks. Perfect appearance and texture. High carbonation, huge long-lasting head and dry finish makes it easy to drink. Moderate esters, a perfect balance of phelolics and fruits. A masterpiece.

hapjydeuce (996) - Carlsbad, California, USA - APR 20, 2007
Pretty old bottle by the looks of it, bbd of 6/12/07. Pours a dark brown with a velvety tan head with moderate lacing. Mediocre aroma of malt, sugar and raisin. Flavor of caramel, slight hint of yeast and orange peel. A bit disappointed with the palate, not very smooth and almost metallic in the end, not good. Medium alcohol finish. I would like to try a fresh bottle, but worth a try.

Just poured into a glass. Nice malty glug sound. Deep red hue, small head. Flavor is bright, crisp with some fig, prune and malt. Palate is thin not a long finish, It would be nice to do back to back with this style.
