brnandersen (3084) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2016
33 cl bottle poured in to a Trappist glass. Dark amber colour with a creamy off-white head. Sweet aroma with caramel malts, yeasts, subtle liquorice hints, tart apples, toffee, chocolate, cough drops and light earthy hops. Taste is sweet. Medium to full body with a creamy to oily texture. Average carbonation. Finishes long lasting slightly dry and fruity yeasty with caramel malts and a gentle burn of alcohol. Excellent Trappist beer. However, I get the same intensity and complexity from a Rochefort 8 to a third of the price.

HonkeyBra (3986) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2016
12 oz. bottle from my Secret Santa. One of my oldest wants. Thanks man! Pours a ruddy brown with a small off white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, caramel and apple notes. Toasted malt, bread, and toffee with a mild yeast spice. Flavor is fruity and dense, sweet but balanced by the yeast. Full bodied, pillowy carbonation. Pretty great.

Ambro206 (350) - ITALY - JAN 24, 2016
Un’esperienza di bevuta unica. Ammetto. Anche per la sua esclusività. La birra si presenta ambrata scura con schiuma bianca, abbondante e persistente. Al naso prugna, chiodo di garofano e miele. In bocca bilanciamento perfetto con una punta di secchezza e amaro che non fa percepire l’alcool comunque presente. Corpo robusto e frizzantezza vivace ma adeguata. Pulisce.
