3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Date stamp of 18/12/08. The beer pours a dark brown color, reminiscent of root beer, with a frothy light brown head. The head soon drops leaving behind a thin ring. The aroma is very subtle and we struggled to come up with specifics. Itís mostly lightly sweet malt, with some faint dark fruit and a mild spice note. The taste is as easy on the palate as the aroma was on the nose. Malt and caramelized brown sugar come to mind. Thereís a hint of cinnamon noted. The finish is dry and mildly bitter, with a lot of carbonation felt on the tongue.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours dark, mahogny colored with a hughe, three finger high, brownbeige, head.
Nose: Brown sugar, dark syrup, hazelnut, fudge, caramel, dark bread, raisin, plum, marzipan, dark fruit, cherries and caramel malt. Itís a very beatiful nose!
Taste: Nuts, a hint of roasted malt, caramel, brown sugar, coffee, alcohol, biscuit, hops and burned sugar. The taste isnt really up to the quality of the nose.
Body: Medium to full body. High carbonation. A bitter aftertaste.
A great double!

Dejlig let spændende mørk trappistøl igen. Fin balance og på ingen måder tung. Dog ikke den bedste trappistøl....

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark brown color, topped with a medium sized beige colored creamy head. Malty aroma, yeasty with some fruity notes and a tad of alcohol. Taste is mild ysweet, malty with yeasty presence. A bit of fruity presence can be felt. Almost no bitterness but a slight alcohol burn feeling - not too strong. Drinkable, though Iím not a big fan.
