4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My first ever rating. Will try to make a habit out of it, so I can keep track of my journey throughout the big world of beers. Great beer to start with. I have tried a bottle with expiry date 2012 before, which was really phenomenal. The bottle I am rating right now is a whole lot younger: about 6 months. Can use some more aging, however, taste has already nicely developed.
Beer is dark brown with a long lasting head. Aroma is not that special, but the first sip immediately hits the spot. Perfectly balanced flavours of chocolate, bread, raisins and dark fruits with a full body. Pretty sweet and rather thick. Intensity increases as the beer gets warmer. The carbonation is average and is perfect for this beer.
I seem to always enjoy this beer, it never disappoints. Worth the enormous hype? Maybe not, but just sit back and enjoy this great trappist beer.

Bonne bière ! se laisse facilement déguster sur la terrasse au soleil.
Mais pas a toute heure ni a toutes saisons! Souffre de sa popularité et perd sont côté simple et authentique

A very smooth drink. Full of aroma and a touch of sweet. No massive carbon dioxide flavor to the beer.
Lives up the hype around and probably correct the best beer in the world.
Very different also then other beers I've tasted before.

This beer is so hyped that it is probably hard to live up to it at this point. Everything about this beer is perfectly in balance. It's almost impossible to detect any distinct standout flavors or aromas. It's such a pleasure to drink and I highly recommend it. I think I was expecting something to just blow me away flavor wise, but this is not that. It is truly a work of perfectly sculpted perfectly balanced art.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours dark brown minimal off white head. Nose shows grape up front. Brings back memories of the grape bubblegum I had as a child. Dark fruits and bread round out the nose. Taste follows the nose, sweet dark fruit, vinous grape, raisins, bread, a toffee texture and a slightly spicy finish. ABV incredibly well hidden. Is it the best beer in the world? No. But it's damn good and worth the effort to get!

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours a dark cloudy brown. Aromas of almonds and chocolate, some raisins. The taste brings much more raisins, chocolate and nuts. Long finish. Good.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Duft av plomme, karamell og andre frukter. Mørk brun farge. Lite skum. Noe kullsyre som bobler i munnen, smak av frukter og karamell med en fin ettersmak av karamell.
