It feels funny drinking "the best beer in the world," and while I donít think itís my fav beer Iíve had, it definitely is enjoyable to drink while still having high value in the aroma/taste. I love that itís unmarked, but also itís expensive haha.

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 itís good. Find it and taste it! The mouth is rich with breast taste, the smell a bit strong with alcohol. Colour : brown

Po otwarciu butelki wydobywają się nuty owocůw, głůwnie wyczuwalna morela i zapach drożdży. Barwa ciemnej herbaty. W smaku piwo przypomina wino morelowe z posmakiem drożdżowym. Alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown with khaki head. Very complex strong aroma. Notes of figs, brown sugar, molasses, dark fruits, caramel. Mouthfeel is a little sticky and chewy. Flavors of raisin, plum, figs, caramel, toffee, maple syrup, bourbon, earthy notes and spices. Complex incredible beer. Definitely deserves the hype. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Absolutely fantastic beer. Completely lived up to the hype and iím not even a huge Belgian drinker. Definitely a different taste than the St. Bernardus 12

At In de Vrede. Deep ruby brown with a frothy lasting beige head. Aroma is surprisingly neutral. Like the others itís not overcarbonated, with perfect balance and mouthfeel. Earthy hoppiness with a moderate bitterness. Balanced with Caramel, brown sugar, dates, figs. Complex maltiness. Dry finish. Alcohol is hidden. Just very clean and smooth and weíll put together. Harmonious. Surprisingly restrained even for such a strong beer. Also something very unique about it; mysterious. Anxious to try a bottle after aging.
