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.

I had the pleasure to sample this and the Westmalle Triple side by side. What an incredible brew done to excellent proportions. Aroma was incredibly complex with brown sugar, some plums, some spices in there. Appearance was nice with large tannish head. Mouthfeel was strong with a full-bodied but balanced appeal. Extremely warming, very soothing.

The aroma is a complex symphony of raisens, plums, and bananas. Westmall Dubbel pours a dark brown with a frothy tan head. The head is of considerable duration. The beer starts off soft but rapidly expands into a mixture of chocolate and fruit with an overal portwinelike quality. At the finish there is an astringint quality with some bitterness left on the palate.

Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is of malts and fruit with a hint of chocolate. Taste is the same with the precense of alcohol, but not too strong

schuimkroaat (424) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2006
33 cl bottle, ’bbe’ Oct 06. Light reddish brown, full of fine sediment particles. Frothy beige head, not very stable, but forming a nice lace. Fruity (plums, pears), vinous (port) and light spicy aroma. Some chocolate pralines also. Chocolate, caramel and strong fruit (pears again, reminiscent of pear jenever) in the taste; the latter is harsher than in a younger example. Clear presence of alcohol and a very long, bitter and a bit burnt aftertaste. Dense body, slightly tart mouthfeel and a little astringent finish.

NosirIwont (2044) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2006
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper colour with a big brownish head. Sweetish, malty and fruity aroma. Feels a bit weak. Flavour is equally sweetish, malty and fruity and has notes of alcohol. 28-01-06.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 29, 2006
Bottle (Best before 14/07/07). Poured a dark brown with a frothy tan head that disipated over time but came back alive with a twist of the glass. Aroma of fruits, floral, and some spices. The flavor was mainly fruity (apple & prunes) with hints of malts. Medium body with a lively carbonation.

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2006
Bottle. Strong, fruity, complex, and delicate aroma, an aroma deserving of prestige. Cheeses and fruit must. The faintest tinge of color, near-black. Generous cakelike flavorful head (head is to this beer as frosting is to cake). Delicious sweet, the alcohol balanced perfectly, fruity, crisp, autumn fruit. Lightweight, frindly, tasty finish.

McNick (13) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark chocolate black, virtually opaque with a thick creamy off-white head. Fantastically intense aromas of figs dates and plums, as well as chocolate (Nutella) and hazelnuts. I immediately got an interesting flavour of ice tea and peaches, even though the beer is more malty than fruity: Caramel, custard and creme brulée are present throughout. As it warmed, further flavours of almonds and amaretto came through with aromas of Bailey’s & Irish cream. A delicious and surprisingly refreshing and drinkable beer. Not too watery, the palate is as close to perfection as I’ve experienced so far and the aftertaste is very moderately bitter. Excellent.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Bottle, 33cl. Reddish brown pour. Frothy long lasting head. Sweet and spicy aroma with a hint of caramel. Another great trappist.
