typically belgian in taste, though a little softer than most. Pours a beautiful dark brown with a large fluffy beige head. Quite a nice beer, after taste a little disappointing..

This ale drank very easily. It didn’t really have the depth and complexity of say a Chimay Blue, so it really wasn’t a sipping ale. A lot more fizzy than I expected, with large instead of small bubbles.

Megen perlende kulsyre
Sprittet sur smag med let kaffe-smag.

A rusty red. Red wine like aroma. Subtle chocolate with some dark fruit esters. Has a small spicy and dry finish.

330ml bottle (bb.08.11.2007). Large beige foam mostly diminishing. Fair lacing. Russet coloured body. Light spicy aroma improving after a while in the glass. Medium syrupy palate. Yeasty flavour some of it covered with the sweetness of malty chocolate. The ending is sweet and dry. Solid mouthfeel.

Serves up a nice deep brown color with a nice proper fizzy biege head. Nose of fruits, esters, and malt. Flavors are apple, and some spices but they’re well balanced in. This is a nice smooth easy drinking trappist beer. Not as good as their triple, but still a good double.

Beautiful dark red color with great head. Some fruity and malty aroma and flavor. Rather bitter and not quite as good as other trappists.

Pours with a beautiful cafe au lait head and an aroma of dried fruit, hops, and brown sugar. Good biting flavor of soy sauce or Marmite (but milder) and toasted grain. A slightly bitter finish, not too dry. Tropical fruit flavors continue to unfurl through the remainder of the glass.
