Bottle at the Hopdevil. It looks impressive. Extremely thick, ccreamy off-white head on top of a very dark red body. Lovely. The nose is very faint, bit vinuous, bit malty. The taste is, however, quite balanced and pleaasant. Malt, some plums, some raisins. Quite hoppy for a trappist... the tangy hopiness holds the end finish the aftertaste. Nice despite the lack of complexity, but I still don’t like dubbels much... thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2007 Dark brown ale with a wonderful aroma that’s a mix of chocolate, malty, and nut notes. The beer is slightly complex in the mouthfeel and finishes very smoothly. A winner, a total winner. ucusty (2693) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Dark brown. very nutty aroma with lots of carbination. tastes of roasted malts, coffee, and freash bread.. Sticky on the mouthfeel
Before I forget... A big F.U. to The Shelton Bro’s Importers for putting the big import sticker on the bottom half of the back label. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 25, 2007

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2007 Bottle.. beautiful red color, wonderful aroma, and a big fluffy head. Almost the perfect beer for my taste. Miksu (5052) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2007
0.33 l bottle. Red color with big fluffy head. Strong tart fruity and phenolic aroma with dull dark malt, raisins, figs and bubblegum. Tart, bready and yeasty flavor with raisins, plum and dry musty woodyness. Very highly carbonated. Quite dunkel weizen-like. Spicy yeast and dark malt does not mix well in this beer. Grovlam (4257) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2007
Bottle. Huge fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted. Clear sparkling body with a brown colour. Good lacing. Notes of caramel, pruns, raisin, liquorish, brown sugar. The tasting was not pleasurable as heavy sour notes killed the experience. From what I could tell it was medium bodied. Heavy sour flavour with some sweetness. Think it was infected.

Bottle. Dark amber with a impressing white head. Aroma of caramel and sweet malt.Fruit but not as much as in the Achel 8 blond. The body is medium to full with a certain roundness to it. Can’t describe it better, sorry. A very good Belgian brown. afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2007
Bottle from Kingdom Liquors Brandon, Fl. Pours a clear amber with a very large light tan head that is coming out of the glass and leaves great lacing and is comparable to a Chouffe Houblon pour. Aroma of sweet malt, sweet caramel, aromatic malt, and light notes of dark fruit and yeast spice. Taste is very fresh sweet malt with wonderfull notes of caramel, yeast spice, and dark fruit. Medium mouthfeel with a good amount of carbonation that finishes dry. An under rated wonderfull Trappist brew.
