Hated the aroma on this one the opening of the bottle. Fell in love on the pour and was lost on the taste. WHAT an beer, insanely well composited beer on its abv level. Im no fan whatsoever of belgian style beers at all, yet this one mangages to entice me, the taste is nothing at all to what i expected it to be on the first aroma sample. So sweet! so balanced, so belgian funky but still not, how did they make this beer? Begs the question!

Good Belgian trappist beer. But not the best in the world. Dark brown colour, aroma of dried fruit.

Ocena 4.5, a jednak małe rozczarowanie... W aromacie ciasto z wisniami, czyli słodko i czerwono, jest też belgijska przyprawowość, z naciskiem na goździki, bardzo fajna kompozycja. W smaku przyprawowość wymieszana z marcepanem, śliwka węgierka, karmel, kandyzowane owoce, spora jak na styl goryczka ziołowa nadająca kontrę, piwo bardzo gładkie, świetnie ukrywające alkohol. Doskonałe, ale spodziewałem się czegoś więcej. Tak, jestem maruda.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2014 Ok, thats THE beer.. I am lucky enough to have a bar that serves it behind where I live and a shop that sells too... I know, you hate me ;) This is a beautiful Trappist, my favourite Trappist for sure. A golden brown colour, very well balanced, though its 10,2% the alcohol level is perfect, not too high I think. A lot of caramel on the nose and mouth. People call it "the angels pissing on your tong" over here. This beer is real pleasure...but still for me its not "the best beer in the World"...

Imported in bottles from belgiuminabox. Do yourself a favor and learn to be patient! First bottle I wasnt and I was very unimpressed. Waited 30 days to open the second. An entirely new world. Very smooth aroma and mouthfeel. Terrific and complex layers of flavor.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with small white head that fades fast. Aroma is fresh with malts and sweetness. Taste is very nicely balanced. Thanks SNL

Bottle. Caramel color, small offwhite head. Slightly sour nose, crisp taste, with a clear sweet note. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice.

Alusmamuts (499) - LATVIA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle from Beer Mania. Dark brown almost black iwth medium, bit creamy light-light brown head. A bit sweet aroma. Some sourness in taste together with fruity sweetness, cabonation on he tongue tip. Some roasted/coffee bitternes, folowed by stronger remaining hops / herbal bitterness towards the tongue root. (To be honest - expected much more)
