Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2005
Bottle, thanks HogtownHarry. Dark brown pour. Huge, frothy white head that stayed forever. Spicy, nutty and sweet aroma. Full bodied mouthfeel. Spicy taste with a deep mild malt sweetness. Also a little bland and watery at times. Very creamy. Incredibly drinkable and dessert like at the same time, I just wish it had a little more flavour (and feel less watered down) to make it exceptional. As is very good.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Poured a reddish brown color with a large amount of tanish foamy head. Aroma is a little nutty and sweet fruity, almost bananaish with some spicey, yeasty undertones. Flavor is a bit of a dissapointment as its mostly malts with a bit of a raisiny flavor accentuated by fruity notes. Overall, I thought it was pretty decent, but definitely not my favorite Belgian.

Bottled. Hazy nut brown colour with reddish hints, beige foamy head. Bananaish aroma, very sahtilike. Bananaish malty flavour with hints of raisins, toffee and hay. Sticky mouthfeel.

HogTownHarry (6381) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2005 Bottle (330ml). First bottle of my very own case, I had better like it. Aroma had huge bread dough notes, slightly fruity, raisiny, malty and spicy - poured deep copper, cloudy, no residue, quick settling bubbles, massive off-white head which lingered forever (required a delicate pour). Flavour was off-dry white wine, sweetish mild maltiness, light clove, some ash. Alcohol and mild bitterness noticeable on the linger. Tasty overall and lighter than some Belgian bruins - I think I will enjoy my case!

Courtesy of Pailhead. Medium brown in color with film for head. Nice aroma of banana and some dark fruits, maybe a little smoke to it also. Flavor has some dark fruit and spice but very hard to pinpoint anything. Decent overall.

JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2005
It had a bit of a burnt aroma with a somewhat nutty fruity flavor which resembled a raison or a plum. Enjoyable!

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2005
Slightly cloudy brown pour with amber highilights, thick diminishing beige creamy head that leaves beautifull lacing on the glass. Interesting aroma of fruits (plums, raisins) with sweetness (maybe barley sugar) and underlying alcohol. Good flavor of barley sugar (sucre dorge), fruits (plums and raisins again) with underlying malt and alcohol, sweet finish. Light to medium body, oily texture, moderate carbonation. Interesting beer, not world class as other trappists but still its enjoyable and well made.

ceejmomeechmo (58) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Bottle. Poured a clear dark amber/ red with a large quick dissolving head, leaving great lacing. Very pungent aromas of rich plums and currant. Flavor and mouthfeel were not what I expected at all. I found flavors of caramel and prune mixed with barnyard and spice towards the finish. I think this bottle needed a few more months before consumption, but overall not too bad.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2005
A Mes rate: Smooth drinking version of chocolate and vanilla cake! In fact it smells remarkably like angel cake. Maybe its the cherry sponge. Yup definitely the cherries. Plums looks, tan head that doesnt last all that well. Not bad. My least favourite of the Monks stuff.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2007 I forgot how much I love Trappist Beers. Rich and malty with taste of dried fruit, spices, caramel, a strong bourbon like flavor. a must have, if you can find
