A reddish brown trappist ale, malty and fruit, featuring a 3 week secondary fermentation. This ale has a full, pale yellow head. The bouquet is full of esters and fruitiness. Notes of ripe banana predominate. The taste is fruity and slightly bitter, with a long, dry finish.

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Pours a deep brown with a tan head that faded to a thin cap on the beer that lasted right down to the final sip. The aroma here is intense and variable: my first attempt was all dark fruit, dominated by raisin. Second go of it found some yeasty spiciness, while the third was sweet and malty. The taste is similar. The flavors are layered one on top of another, but in a noticeably subtle way: one sip brings roasty malts and caramel, with a spiciness in the finish. The next brings dark fruits and a fading bitterness at the sides of the tongue. As for mouthfeel, the carbonation here is lively upon first digging in, and fades as the beer sits and warms. It is more drinkable at the beginning but easier to appreciate the flavors at the end - both work to admirable goals, and never is the beer watery in the slightest - even acquiring a distinct creaminess as it warms.

Dark brown/amber with a rocky white head. Hops, malt and rather yeasty. Nice balance though.

Pours a chocolatey brown color. Lots of carbonation. Light brown head. Pre-dominate rummy alcoholice aroma. The flavor is where its at. Chocolate, raisins, cooked sugars, rum, other dark fruits. Full on the palate yet easy to drik several. Very nice. I may start keeping a couple around.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2006
330ml Bottle: Pours crimson-brown with a thick foamy head; incredible foam stability throughout here. Aroma is a beautiful blend of alcohol-soaked cherries, burnt caramel, and brown sugar. The flavour when cold is a muted combination of roasted malts, bitter apples, spices, and gentle hops. As it warms this turns from something great to something exceptional, an intricately crafted and balanced brandy-style beer with perfect creamy mouthfeel. Can’t wait to do it all over again.

Bottle. Poured a deep chocolate colour with a thin tan head. There was slight vanilla scent in the nose and a hint of a sweeter finish. There was a strong malty flavour but even at 7% the alcohol flavour was present throughout. It felt a little thin as far as the mouth feel but it was an enejoyable beer none the less. I look forward to a chance to try the tripple and will definitely have to revisit this with another sample.

From 33cl bottle; one of the LCBO’s exploding bottles. Poured a rich brown with a 1/2 inch thick head. Barely translucent and it reminded me of aged pure maple syrup. Aroma of vanilla and candy permeates the nose. Flavour is malt and alcohol...the 7% clearly comes through. Caramel finishes the flavour.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2008 330 ml bottle - Pours a deep brown with golden highlights at the edges. Delicious aroma of grapes, black- berries, and lots of malt. Full mouthfeel, with an emphasis again on the malt, but without being cloying. Smooth and almost wine-like, and it should be treated as such - it truly is a holy thing. Highly sessionable for it’s strength.

On tap at Carlsens. Really nice beer. Beautiful brown look and malty aroma. Flavor is some sour and sweet with a wonderful finish. An always true beer!
