UPDATED: AUG 4, 2020 Well, Belgiums pride and joy indeed.
It is a very very good beer, but for me not the best ever... Did a head to head once with St.Bernardus abt 12 and they are indeed very similar but not exactly thesame in my opinion. fistrin (87) - Lleida, POLAND - JUL 25, 2020

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2020 Aroma: Deep, complex, spicy. fruity.
Taste: An arsenal of dried dark fruits, figs, sour cherries, dates, moscovado sugars, everything very well integrated. Nice development. Warming. Rounded.
Taste like it's homemade by someone really passionate about beer.
I cant give it top marks, because it is too expensive for what it can give you, but it's the law of supply and demand, I guess. Musicoholic (196) - Szczecin, POLAND - JUL 17, 2020
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2020 Barwa brunatna, z wyraźnymi refleksami. Piana dość obfita, osadza się na szkle.W aromacie sporo miodu, suszonych owoców, czuć droższy alkohol i karmel. W smaku również bardzo karmelowo i syropowato. Te suszone owoce również się przebijają. Piwo niezwykle gładkie, od razu mocno rozgrzewa w przełyku. Czuć szlachetny alkohol także w smaku. Bardzo przyjemne, na długi wieczór. kolemkoukolem (2018) - Pilsen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 11, 2020
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2020 # 2137; 7/2020. Rich sweet malty aroma, alcohol, sour cherries, light spicy, caramely, fruitty esters (dried plum, sour cherry, raisin). Copper-brown, hazy body; creamy, tany head. Rich, malty, fruitty (dried fruit), spicy, light alcohol warmth; very well balanced and harmonius. Excellent beer, dangerously drinkable... 0,3 l, bottle, beershop, Prague.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2020 Beautiful bottle, probably about 3 years old. Pours dark brown, couple of cm of white head which subsides a bit but lasts the distance. Aroma complex, dark fruit, yeast and a hint of burnt sugar. By now the beer is wonderfully smooth, fruity yeast, vinous notes, rich array of flavours on the tongue. When you are considered one of, if not the, very best accusations that you are overrated are bound to follow. Unfair in this case. I‘be experienced this beer several times but this was a revelation.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2020 Winter, spring, summer, autumn, whatever the season this beer is a nectar. A very good balance with freshness, hops, mouth feel and length. After one year or three years or more, we discover this beer again. Compote, fig, delicated spices are mainfully what I feel and taste. Very nice Trappist karrjin (11) - - JUN 22, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2020 Bottle straight from the monastery, thx A.! This definitely was too fresh but after 6-10minthsxminimum cellar aging it finally came together nicely. Classical Belgian flavors full of fruity esters and malty rich backbone, aging integrates the alcohol and it’s not boozy, barely warming, dried apricots, faint figs, feels pretty thick and rich, simply a delicious and rich monastery beer and I just prefer the original over the knockoffs.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2020 Aroma is sweet, dark fruits, plums, liquorice. Taste is sweet, plums, liquorice, booze. Best quad so far, waited 4 hours to order 3 crates on their website. Worth the time!
