LocalMuse25 (89) - Templestowe, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2019 One of the best on the market. Lives up the reputation! Shame it's so expensive.

skojd (104) - POLAND - OCT 4, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2019 Aromat: pumpernikiel, trochę paloności, karmel, trochę piernika, przyprawy korzenne, lekki alkohol. Barwa: ciemno rubinowa; piana beżowa, gęsta. Smak: karmel, suszone owoce, przyprawy korzenne, paloność. Piwo dość wyważone, zbalansowane, ale brakuje przysłowiowej 'kropki nad i'

Rider0nTheStorm (435) - Ablis, FRANCE - OCT 2, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2019 Bouteille ouverte pour mon anniversaire! Et je n'ai pas aimé cette sommité. A vrai dire c'est une demi-surprise dans la mesure où je n'apprécie pas le style. Cela dit, je m'attendait à un petit truc différent. Déjà bien alcooleuse avec 8%, j'en ai laissé pour demain. Vu son prix (10€) je me permets de la saquer. Mieux vaut la laisser aux moines.

Quick3Beers (2084) - East Falmouth, USA - SEP 29, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2019 Pours a rich mahogany from a bottle, plenty of head, pillowy marshmallow color. Rich leathery tannic aroma, candi sugar flavor turns into an slightly spiced yeastiness, ends with an interesting very faint medicinal bitterness. Good beer.

Lino78 (353) - POLAND - SEP 25, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2019 Dobreee. Zapach taki ostrawy i lekko duszący, ale słodkawy i przyjemny. Smak przyjemny, gładki bez wad. Fajne, godne polecenia piwo.

Cimbasso (1532) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2019 Bottle from Belgisk Bryg in Copenhagen, having been cellared for more than a year. Pours a dark chestnut brown with a firm and long-lasting tan head with plenty of lacing. Good aroma of dried fruit, prunes and Armagnac. Taste has great depth with elements of black bread, vine fruits, leather, brandy and wood. Rich toffee flavours balanced by earthy bitterness. Long aftertaste of berries and leather. Excellent carbonation. A beautifully balanced and complex beer. Worth seeking out.

drfabulous (11648) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - SEP 13, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2019 12 ounce bottle in Brussels. A smooth candy like some caramel Belgian style. I'm not sure how different from the regular but good.

DraftWhisperer85 (300) - Sint-truiden, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2019 Voor mij persoonlijk vind ik deze fijner dan de XII soepel en krachtig, ik drink mijn west Vleteren pas na 2 jaar

LocalRespek37 (11) - GLENDALE, USA - AUG 12, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2019 On the money. I am a huge Belgian Ale fan. Went WAY out of my way to get a couple of bottles from the abbey. I hope to go back to do it again! Heavy on malts, light on hops, strong ABV. All that is good! The beer itself is as good as others, the experience in getting it was a HUGE part of the story. Strong Belgian Trappist Ales are the epitome of brewing. You have the ability to try many all over the world. However, the experience of going to the abbey and drinking one there cannot be overestimated. Go to Rocheforte. Go to Westvleteren.

AleGuru2 (90) - Houten, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2019 Na de laatste OR/vergadering die ik moest notuleren, waardig afgesloten met dit bier. Ziet er natuurlijk super uit! Geur was niet heel prominent. De smaak daarentegen, het leek wel alsof het bier in smaak evolueerde tijdens het drinken. Bijzonder aangenaam en voor herhaling vatbaar.
