UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 Deep ruby red basically brown without a light with a thick lasting creamy lacy beige head. Spicy caramel toasted malt and lots of berries - raisins and prunes. The body is creamy and smooth.with soft carbonation. Lots of complexity here. Raisins, prune with some dates. Clear alcohol present but in an older bottle its hardly noticable. Two bottles - before May 22nd 2014 and january 25 2012 so its 5 months old and three years old. 5months - It started out a bit hard to drink but after a while it became amazing. I had some cheese which brought out the flavours. Malt and fruit lingers in the mouth. I’m excited to try it again, properly aged and stored. 3 years. So smooth and easy to drink, lots of deep dark malt.

dandeman (490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
En olfactif, beaucoup de fruits des champs, des mures des cerises noires, du pruneau, du bonbon, de la réglisse rouge et de la mélasse. Une superbe complexité. Visuel: Brun, flou, une mousse épaisse dense et effervescente à la fois. Le maintient est cependant moyen et les traces sont rares. Gustatif: L’attaque est douce, toute en sucre; la finale est longue et sèche, légèrement houblonnée et terreuse. Les notes sont surtout sucrées et fruitées avec du jujube, de la réglisse, des cerises noires, des mures, des figues, des dattes. La finale se maintient longtemps et laisse des accents de terre, d’écorce, avec un brin de conifère. Une bière très équilibrée. Une bière phare de son style.

Espectacular cerveza de abadia doble, tostada, al igual que su hermana tripel de lo mejor dentro de las cervezas trapenses. Riquisima si se marida con queso

0.33 bottle. Alcohol in aroma, could feel some raisins and caramel notes. Dark brown with light brown (caramel) head. Light sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour... in other words complex taste. Medium body, average carbonation. A nice enjoyable beer.

From 33cl bottle. Almost black, fluffy white head, long lasting with lots of lacing. Aroma of bran, dark chocolate. Soft on the palate with only mild carbonation. Long lasting hints of nuts, burnt caramel. Well balanced, delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
A deep brown with garnet hi lights. A big foamy head like merange and appears to be nicely carbonated. Sweet malt with a nice fruitiness about it. Sweet malt taste like the aroma, with candied sugar, plums and dates. I’m not picking up much in way of hops. Bitter at end with a dry finish. Body wise I thought it felt a little thin around the edges but I’m not overly concerned. A very good tasting beer that gains in flavor as it warms. Nice lacing from the always present head. Cellar worthy I deem this beer good to the last drop.
