Flaske. Farven er dybbrun og skummet er lyst og ikke særlig holdbart (alkoholprocenten!). Dufter af alkohol, ristet malt og frugt og smager af kaffe og karamel. Eftersmagen er bitter. Det siges at være verdens bedste øl, og jeg er ikke helt uenig heri.

Bottles thanks to Leighton and James. Pours a murky brown, beige head. Aroma is raisin, sweet malt, fruits, fig, caramel. Flavor is sweet and nutty, dark fruits, toffee, caramel. Med body, super smooth stuff - a beauty.

2007 bottle. Pours an opaque brown with a quickly dissipating beige bubbly head. Aroma of sherry, dried fruit, fig, currants, raisins, molasses, spice. Taste is of fig, more dried fruits, blackcurrant, plum, warming spice notes with hints of the alcohol. Medium carbonation, light oily mouthfeel.

TtV (327) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Deep black with a fluffy off white head. Rich aroma of wood, sweetness, bitterness and malts. The taste starts mildly bittersweet. Then it develops into a rich bouquet of sweetness, a metallic bitterness combined with a warm glow of alcohol. It’s too rich to describe really, never tasted anything like it.

Pours murky red brown with thin line of head. Aroma; Dried dark and red fruits, toffee, plumes, caramel, dades and some alcohol notes. Flavours; sweet, dried dark and red fruits, , almond, dades, caramel and herbal tones with alcohol in the finish. A complex and a very nice trappist. I prefer Westvleteren 8 over the 12.

Backlog. Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 11.05.13. Dark copper. Great head. Red berries and some alcohol in aroma. First taste is of red berries, malt and slightly medicinal alcohol. Then more complexity evolves, with bitter blackcurrants, Long aftertaste of malt and berries, with moderate bitterness. Average carbonation. A beer to be enjoyed!

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2015 Muito boa, mas pro meu paladar, está longe de ser a melhor do mundo. As trapistas Belgian Ale são melhores

Sausagedog (5) - Scarborough, AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2015 does not count
So well balanced. Pours dark/slightly murky. Roasted malts, slight burnt toffee, cloves, not too sweet, can’t taste the high alcohol.

jelledebont (89) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2015 Een rijk aroma en een subtiele smaak. Bier van een erg hoge kwaliteit, zonder heel uitgesproken te zijn. Lijkt met elke slok zelf nog iets beter te worden.

Bouteille - De couleur brune avec un bonne mousse beige qui tient et colle au verre - Au nez des arômes de miel, de caramel, biscuit (speculos), beaucoup de malt, les levures apporte pas mal d’épices, l’alcool est bien masqué - En bouche toujours beaucoup de miel, les levures apporte beaucoup d’épice, le malt apporte ce côté biscuit caramel et les levure sublime le tout, une petite présence de houblon terreux, l’alcool se cache bien derrière le toute - Corp puissant, amertume moyenne, carbonation correcte, douce et soyeuse, final malt doux - une excellente bière un peu surévalué à mon goût mais ça reste quelque chose d’exceptionnel
