4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Got 2 crates of this beer by myself. Thatís almost half of the joy of having it and drinking it. The idea that you have something that you canít buy at the local liquorstore...
The proof of the beer is the drinking.
The bottle leaves no information but the bottlecap so I had no idea of what to expect. The foam is not very stable and the CO2 is well present but not too much. Just enough actually.
Taste is deep and full with a very nice bitterness. Not sweet, just right. I couldnít taste alcohol, thatís fine. The smell is spicy.
I could drink this for ever. This beer is very complete, almost ancient. Maybe this is what beer was supposed to taste so the monks in the Sint Sixtus Abbey listende very well to their Father!

Flaska í Hafnarfirði yfir Power Grid spili. Það er snjór og ófærð á Íslandi en í BNA ráða orkumógúlar yfir öllu, líka veðrinu. Góður! Takk fyrir mig Ýmir.

Every beer lover talks about this rare and exceptional beer. Finally I got the chance to get it and to enjoy it. Itís alwayís difficult to taste a beer that is so praised as this one - but now I know why! The taste is simply delicious. Licorice, brown sugars, bread crumbs, anise, heavy alcohol notes and roasted coffee build a complex, but very accessible and round symphony of flavors. This full bodied beer offers new impressions with every sip. Incredible!
Well, itís difficult to stay neutral when you taste a beer that got so much credits as this one - but finally, itís easy. This beer is simply one of the outermost best brews on the planet!!!!

Bottle from Crepes de Sophie in Shrewsbury. Opened with a bit of a gush and plenty of chunks of sediment came out with the pour. Not a great start for the worldís best beer. Aside from the chunks, itís a hazy ruby colour with a good frothy cream head. Pleasant fruity caramel aroma. The flavour is fruity to begin with with quite a bit of spice and quite evident warming alcohol. Other notes of caramel, sherry, raisin, vanilla. Enjoyable beer, but I found it a bit too boozy to be honest.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma of brown sugar with a touch of dark fruit, dates, and an oak character. Appears purplish-rubyish dark brown, giant light caramel foam. Big brown sugar flavor and dried dates that are balanced with a european hop bitterness, mild sugar lingers on the end. Palate is foamy, mouth filling, and light. Overall, great.

Bottle (aged roughly twoish years). Super dark brown. A bit bubbly. Very heady/foamy. Faintly spicy nose. High spice at front that fades into subtle clove, light floral hops. Rich without being too sweet.

Perfecte Trappist. Helaas moeilijk te krijgen. Vrij zwaar maar een zoete nasmaak.
