Ezt a sört szerintem nem kell bemutatni senkinek. Az igazi trappista. Erős, intenzív sörélmény, testes íz és finom, könnyed gyümölcsös illat. Mennyei

Layers upon layers of flavour. Complexity that is unrivaled in anything I have consumed to date. Each sip offered a slightly different flavour as the beer warmed in the glass. Chocolate, banana, caramel - it was an excellent experience.

Mooi donker troebel bruin bier. Koffiekleurige schuimkraag die snel verdwijnt. Smaak vol romige pruimen rozijnen en een vleugje witte wijn. Goed bier gedronken met Bryan

I don’t really feel I can say as much about this as I would like. I simply feel underqualified. I thought this was completely wonderful. I drank it in Bruxelles and spent a long time trying to come to terms with what it is. I came short. Good, we need some mysteries in life.

Bottle is about 2 years or so old. Murky pour, fairly small head. Raisin, plum, brown sugar, light spices, toffee in the aroma. Lots of dried dark fruit here, raisin, fig, plum, dark toffee, a bit of anise. Quite nice and will be happy to revisit the other 2 I have stashed away in coming years.

Desvćrre skal man skrive en hel del for at fylde dette felt ud og med denne řl er det ikke nřdvendigt at skrive andet end fřlgende: Dette er en rĺddent fantastisk řl - slut prut!

Over rated. Do they even drink beer in the Netherlands ? Or is this like in France? Maybe they should make some wine.

tommann (2600) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
330ml bottle, massive thanks to Ian aka Harrisoni. Pours dark caramel brown with a small head. Aroma is dark fruits, toffee, caramel, molasses and booze. Taste is toffee and cola to start. Rich fruity caramel finish. Boozy. Good shit.

JBPortland (628) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 6, 2014
11.2oz bottle (brick version) thanks to Bbdubn! Pours cloudy dark toasted red-brown with a finger of head. Nose is fruity earthy bread, fig, raisin, cherry, a touch of booze. Taste is creamy earthy dark bread, berry, nuts, grapes, fig, fruity, a bit more carbonated than expected but mellowed after a few minutes in glass. Finish is bready fruit, raisin, sweet maple notes, berry. Delicious!

kuphish (380) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle thanks to Eddie. Best by 10.02.15. Pours a cloudy, light brown body with lots of garnet coloring on the edges. Fluffy, tan head is sticky and lasting. Chunky yeast particulate detracts. Aroma has sweet, rosy alcohol accompanied by light brown sugar, plum, and grape. Rich cherry flavors come through on the first sip followed by faint apricot and cinnamon. More grape, too. Pleasantly dry palate and effervescent carbonation. Malt forward with a slight slickness that works. Overall a very nice beer. Very repeatable and smooth for its ABV.
