BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - MAY 21, 2008
Amber brown body with nice sized lacing slightly tan head. Aroma was rich of cinnamon sugar and soem clove with a touch of spice. Sweet brown sugar upfront with complex fruitiness. Finishes nice and smooth with flavours bursting out. Rich and smooth.

sebletitje (9645) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 22, 2017
Bouteille 33cl, BB 16/12/2018. Orange avec un léger doré, col beige, moyen retombant vite. Arôme offre un bouquet malté caramel, pointe de pils, pâle, rétro de fruité confit, raisin sec, dates, pruneaux avec un caramélisé arrivant en complément, même une petite note noisette. Palais est malté, caramel, pâle sucre candy ajoutant une petite note de douceur et de crystalisé - possible malt dark crystal? Biscuité avec impression de raisin sec, fruits noirs, amertume plaisant et noble sur la fin, note aussi une pointe de noisettes. Petite bière qui va se bonifier avec l’age.

EithCubes (5717) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2017
Bottle marked 16/02/2013, here just shy of four years later. Nose is sweet and richly estery, stone fruit of plums and apricots, then red berries, touch of cola. Very slow expander, but not a gusher, chestnut from the neck but dark brown in the glass, lots of sediment as I never seem to get a good pour from these, medium and very soapy tan head. Taste rich in candy sugar-like sweetness, surprising medium bitterness doesn’t quite balance, very malty and dense with minimal hopping, lots of hazelnut and dark caramel, the gooey toffee stuff that adheres to the back of a spoon, but airy with those fruity esters, more banana and clove, some darker chocolate and roasty notes in the deep background, cola, raisin and brown sugar. Medium-full body, neither creamy nor crisp, but merely pleasantly smooth; alcohol is extremely well integrated and dangerously so. Very light herbal tones and a nice springtime green, somewhere between woodruff and mint; outright floral tones are very faint. Clean, bright, fresh, classy, tremendous. [2017.01.30: 4.2]

kajser27 (1603) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 28, 2016
Dark brown colored, unclear, medium beige to tan frothy head. Aroma is of brown sugar, caramel, spices with some apple candy. Taste is very sweet malt and brown sugar, caramel, dried fruit, fruity candy, apple, spices, medium bitterness but a sweet finish, alcohol well hidden. Full bodied, average carbonation, sticky. Too sweet and sugary and bit cloying for me... (bottle, Bierhalle Deconinck, Vichte)

alteregoo (1196) - POLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Piana sycząca, gruba, szybko opada prawie do zera. Barwa rubinowo miedziana, opalizująca. W aromacie suszone owoce, kompot wigilijny, sfermentowane truskawki, głóg, przyprawy. W smaku półsłodko, dość klasycznie - rodzynki, figi, kandyzowany cukier, miód, trochę fenoli i te rozmrożone, dziwne truskawki... Goryczka ziołowa, niska, pikantna. Wysokie, musujące nagazowanie, nieźle ukryty, rozgrzewający alkohol.
Fajny BDSA, pijalny, nie mulący, choć motyw nadgniłej truskawki mi odrobinę przeszkadzał...

Kittenbieer (135) - LYON, FRANCE - NOV 14, 2016
Robe ambrée avec de fines particules surmontée d’une mousse beige peu persistante et une forte carbonatation.Le nez est rapidement sur le malt , le sucre et l’alcool..La bouche nous amène sur des saveurs de caramel et de sucre qui masquent l’ensemble.La finale est lourde et "pâteuse".Bière décevante et bien au dessous de l’Abbaye des Rocs "Classique"!!!!!

appiantiqua (135) - Lyon, FRANCE - NOV 14, 2016
Dégustée dans un verre Orval. Température de début 10 à 11°. Robe brun rouge avec beaucoup de sédiments surmontée d’une faible et peu persistante mousse beige; Nez sur le malt et le sucre candi. Le gout est doux et dominé par la chaleur de l’alcool avec une petite pointe d’amertume. La finale de longueur moyenne est un peu trop sucrée. Une déception et une bière très largement inférieure à l’Abbaye des rocs "classique". 12,5/20

sjogro (3331) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2016
Bottle at home. Almost opaque dark brown with grayish off white head. Quite dark for a "tripel". Sweet roasted caramel and chocolate malts. Rye and barley. Grapes, dates, raisans, vanilla, chocolate, roasted almond, alcohol. Medium sweet, light bitter. Over medium body, soft fizzy carbonation. Sometimes a bit fishy ditchwater or maybe it just clashes a bit in a weird way with the cheese I’m enjoying. Nice soft caramelized and buttery feel. Good taste and finish. Quite yeasty as well. Reminiscent of Rochefort but yeastier (from memory).
