Bottle at In de Vrede. Clear dark ruby with persistent thin beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, plums, licorice, caramel. Taste is sweet dark candy sugar, spices, belgian yeast. Medium-full bodied, soft carbonation, alcohol very well inserted. An excellent brew for sure.

Nez léger et fermé. Bouche onctueuse, caramel, café, chocolat; des épices. Fin un amère. Très bon et complexe.

Bottle courtesy of maniac to welcome me to Maryland. Pours hazy bronze. Smells earthy with a hint of sun. Warm mouth feel like a scotch lite. Roasty caramel tones. Understand why this is the best beer. The intangibles are what make it. Let the monks love of beer warm your soul.

It feels funny drinking "the best beer in the world," and while I don’t think it’s my fav beer I’ve had, it definitely is enjoyable to drink while still having high value in the aroma/taste. I love that it’s unmarked, but also it’s expensive haha.

WVHouseofBeer (1023) - Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2016
This is pretty much as close as it gets to perfection. The aroma was a bit subdued but consisted of wood, dark fruit (mostly raisins and cherries) and a hint of alcohol. Pours a beautiful hazy brown color with a small white head. Flavors are very complex with dark fruit, caramel/toffee chewiness and some vinous notes. Full-bodied with a slightly bitter finish. Warming and the ABV certainly makes its presence known while still being wonderfully balanced. Low carbonation. Splendid

Duracell (35) - Montreal, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2016
Glass of tap at the brewery. Deep Brown color with fluffy beige head. Nice lacing. Very fruity with some red wine notes to it. Flavours are well balanced between dark fruits, biscuits and herbal hops. Finishes with some vinous notes and a relatively high hopiness. Medium to full body, extremely smooth, with a perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness. An amazing beer which lives up to the hype!

Just THE Trappist beer. As rare as it’s good. Find it and taste it! The mouth is rich with breast taste, the smell a bit strong with alcohol. Colour : brown

Dzagoda (22) - POLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Po otwarciu butelki wydobywają się nuty owoców, głównie wyczuwalna morela i zapach drożdży. Barwa ciemnej herbaty. W smaku piwo przypomina wino morelowe z posmakiem drożdżowym. Alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty.
