Re-rate: Still as good looking as ever. This time I picked put a spicey apple fruity calvados and port wine aroma and flavour I was not able to quite pin down before. Perhaps this one was a little on the lighter side compared to the others as far as flavours go but still an damn fine beer. I also got this celery and chicken noodle soup tang thing that crops up occasionally in nearly all the trappistes - I’d really like to know what that is? Everything else in previous rating stands.
Second rating 7/7/2002 4.4 Dense brown-red murky colour with large fluffy mid-tan head, nice lacing as well. Gorgeous complex floral aromatic and spicey nose and flavours. Superb body and nicely balanced palate and finish. One of my favourite beers made even better by drinking it with a meal at an small Belgian streetcafe on a mild summers evening.
First rated 4/5/2002 4.3

UPDATED: APR 12, 2004 Very good appearance. Flavor is quite heavy, bitter and a strong palate.
Rerate (april 12, 2004) Very malty, smooth fruity aroma with raisins. Red brown coloured with a brown lasting head. Much debris. Taste is fruity (cherry ?), malty and sweet. Excellent brew. A bit my homebrew, I always have westmalle dubbels in stock. What makes this beer so great is that it never bores.. It's always great. Not many beers have this potential.

muddy brown - reminded me of fine corinthian leather (ha ha). Starts with a creamy carbonated mouth feel that gradually thins. Yeasty and toffee flavors dominate with some fruitiness poppin’ in once in a while. finished very dry.

A very mild and pleasant beer. Delicate and smooth mouthfeel with a very well balanced complexity. If you’re not in the mood for the heavy Rochefort 10 or Westvleteren 12, this would be a great mild substitute. It is quite spicy and caramelly and the 7%ABV is not very obvious.
