presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 15, 2006
Glass is two thirds lasting foam and one third dark orange beer. Malty aroma with scents of peaches. Strong malt flavour tasting of oranges. Filling but stellar. Thanks papsoe.

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Bottle courtesy Papsoe. Earthy, spicy, musty aroma. Citrus holiday sugar. Full on, sour, surprisingly genuine fruitiness. Not overly sweet, only a hint. Tasty, meal-like, complex and earthen. hint of sour. Very "real." Is dark brown with a light tan head and nice lacing. Delicious sour farm candy. Becomes wine-y, slightly bitter as I work through it, seems to lose a little body as I continue, but overall, a very excellent beer.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2006
Bottle at Chaucers- Murky brown pour with a good sized beige froth. Active bubbles leave no lacing. Spicy caramel malt aroma, molasses, and fruit in the nose. Sweet malty booze flavours side by side with sugary yeast and fruit. A tad thin on the finish. ABV not noticable. Good.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - MAR 6, 2006

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2006
Explosive tan sponge of a head settles to form a foam volcano, complete with slopes and a circular caldera. Beneath the surface is a dangerous dark brown/ruby brew spotted with chunks of yeast. Alcohol and yeast in the nose. Candi sugar and dark fruits, also. Flavor adds some rich malt. Full, balanced body. I expexted more from achel. This is good, but too simple for a belgian strong.

Deep, deep brown. Notes of dried fruit on the aroma. Smooth, smooth silky smooth palate. Sweet malty tastes dancing a complex dance on my tougne.

bikesandbeers (547) - san diego, California, USA - FEB 16, 2006
deep amber/brown body with a sizable tan head. Fruity aroma, with a hint of alcohol. Falvor of sweet plums, quickly giving way to a slightly dry, bitter finish. Creamy body went down smooth, and left a great feeling in my mouth. Well the above description fits any number of belgian ales, this one seems to have a little something extra, and its not just the Trappist sticker. A real quality brew.

CEZ (413) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 10, 2006
Deep brown body, tall and lasting beige head. Smells of dark fruit and licorice; some alcohol is also perceived at first. Taste is sweet, with caramel, burnt sugar and raisins, balanced by a late bitterness. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

mbeem (104) - New Hope, Alabama, USA - FEB 8, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2006 Mmmm.. What a wonderful beer this is!! Pours a dark ruby / mahogany into the glass with a off-white head that dissipates rather quickly but clings to the glass throughout drinking producing a beautiful lacing down the glass. Aroma of fruits, mainly raisins and prunes but with a hint of apples. Malt and fruit in taste with a hint of alcohol (the alcohol is well concealed in this one). Must get some more of this!! Absolutely wonderful!!
