CheersMate (1340) - Portland (Sellhood), Oregon, USA - MAR 5, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2007 Tastes of honey. The color is a darkish brown. There is not really a strong finish to this beer as I thought there would be, but there doesnít need to be because this beer is reasonably thick. It is not as thick as I would like it to be, but it does the job. I am not happy about the head. It wasnít tight and stable. It kept growing on me making it difficult to drink the beer. The aftertaste that I am getting is a sweet flavor. As I said before tastes of a dark honey. Good brew! Go Belgium!

Had this at dba in New Orleans. Deep brown color with sufficient head. Wonderful aroma of berries and malt. The flavor was succulent; a nutty fellow with malt and sweet fruit producing an appearance of excellence. Excellent bar by the way - my favorite in New Orleans.

12 oz Bottle. Trappist Glass. Deep dark mahogeny color. Huge head that rises above the rim without spilling. Caramel/raisin malt/sweetness with some raosted malt flavor as well. Nice soft body. A little alcohol taste at the end. Easily enjoyed.

Cloudy dark red/brown with a thick & rocky head and dense lacing. Lush aroma, bready and spicy. Somewhat roasted, but also floral & sweet. Pretty strong hops. Taste was equally complex and full-bodied. Soft mouthfeel, with subdued carbonation & medium/high density.

Bottle.... Reddish-brown with a sturdy yellow/slightly brown head of foam of good persistance, with a steady stream of bubbles feeding it. Good malty and hoppy flavor with good body and intensity. Mellow start with a long lingering in the mouth, not sweet, culminating in a balanced and hoppy but not too bitter finish. I love all there brews....these Monks Rock!!!!!!

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2007
This was the first Belgian beer, that I truly liked. I had given up hope, but suddenly this came along, and I had a sip, another sip and then the entire bottle! The color is dark brown with a red hue, it has a nice, creamy head and the aroma has notes of roasted malt and dark fruit. The mouthfeel is nice and rather oily. The first impression of the flavour is sweetish, with notes of dark fruit, honey, roasted malt and a hint of nuts. While the nice drops leaves the tongue a nice citrussy notes comes along and stays all the way through the finish. Itís a very good beer to start with as the first step into the world of the trappists, and it will always hold a special place in my heart.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2007 Drank this along with a Rochefort 6 and this came out on top hands down. Beautiful dark brown pout with a 2 finger head that laced all the way down the glass. Head left alot quicker than the Rochefort. Aroma is dark fruits, spices and alcohol with some yeastiness in the background.

Sampled in Brugge. Served in proper glass and appearance was beautiful. Tan color was tremendous and a nice smooth head on top. Beer goes down smooth but not as nicely as the tripel.

Poured a dark brown; hints of red; murky. Not much head. Aroma of dark fruit, sweet, spice, sugar and yeast. Flavor was much of the same, but with noticable malt and caramel; bitter and spice finish. Mouthfeel was a little thin for my liking, but still good. Flavors blended well, but just didnt blow me away.

Bottle, 330ml. A dark brown colour with a red tint and a small head. A sweet, fruity aroma. Taste is very malty with some cherry, raisin and chocolate. Fairly high carbonation. A fairly bitter, malty, fruity finish. Not bad, but Iíve had better dubbels.
