callmemickey (4344) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Ruddy brown body. Thin off-white/pale tan head. Spotty lacing. Nose is massive with dark fruits, caramel, booze, yeast, Flavor highlights dark fruits (prunes and figs), caramel malts, and booze. Medium bodied, fairly noticeable booze, thin finish. Not the best in this category after an optimistic nose.

alteregoo (1079) - 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 (114) - 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 (114) - 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 (3045) - 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).

JorgeLee (1856) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2016
Bottle from Bier Tempel. Dark brown colour, white foam. None of the yeasty clumps memtioned in other reviews. Nice sweetish malty and fruity brew. Some spicy hop to balance. Alcohol well hidden. Drinks very easily. Nice, but I’ve had more complex brews in this style.

Pours a brown to beige head with sweet chocolate, nuts and almond aromas. Hazy and nice dark brown colored body. Rich and round in mouth with hints of cognac. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CraftBeerNick (2046) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2016
Bottle at home, 2nd October 16. Pours a dark brown, loads of floating yeast, not good. Aroma is cararmel, bread, yeast, toffee. Taste is sweet and complex, brown sugar, cararmel, yeast. Not bad, but had better.

Bottle. Pours dark reddish, no head. Smells of young wine, sweet sourish grapes. No bitterness, sweet and a tad malty. You can smell the alcohol, but not taste it. Fresh. A great surprise.
