World Class! I went into our tasting thinking that St. Bernardus was going to be the best beer, due to past experience. However, this beer due to its aroma, mouthfeel and taste beat the St. Bernardus which was almost 1 year older out of the water. This beer had the same deep brown color and light brown head however the head stayed longer. The aroma was yeasty, nutty and malty. The flavor was nuttier,with caramel and yeasty notes while having a small bitterness at the end. Also, it had a much thicker and better mouthfeel. This beer is amazing!

Magnificent brew. Slight pause before drinking this because I didnít want to be let dow.n given its iconic status. Aromas and flavors were very well balance with subtleties coming up as the beer warmed. A slight caramel sweetness mixed withd bready malt and spicy yeast. Dark brown sugar color with a nice head. Great mouthfeel with some weight but very smooth.

Okay here we go... best rated beer so letís go. From the bottle poured into trappist glass. Stable beige head, lots of Sediment hard to not pour into the glass. Nose is quite unimpressiv not intrusive at all. Malts and dryed fruit, A bit yeasty nice. But then the taste and Mouthfeel, Boom the less it goes to the nose the more it comes over the mouth. Rich malty, liquorice, slightly alcoholic nice hints of brown shugar, decent bitterness around the palate and nearly everlasting finish. This beer is impressiv, not realy shure if itís the best cause of the imbalence between smell and taste, but the taste is so damn good. I can unterstand why Itís rated that high.
