Bottle. Brown color with nice tan head with good duration. Aroma is fruits and spices. Taste is fruit, spices, caramel and some roast malt.

33 cL bottle. Pours murky brown with dense little off-white head. Aroma is mild Belgian yeasty, light fruity and mild caramel malty. Not a very pronounced aroma in anyway - but not faint either. Light fruity lingering flavour, solid plum to medium sweet raisin note. Light yeast spiced note and a very subdued caramel malt note towards a mild hint of chocolate smoothness. Ends with a light bitterness and a complex fruity mix. Ungstrup (38384) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2003
A deep red slightly cloudy beer with a fine head. The aroma is slightly fruity - a little disappointing for a trappist. The flavor is very light - also for a trappist - the flavor is very complex - with notes I can't figure out. And the flavor lingers for a long time. A nice beer - but far from as good as other trappists. joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2005 Brown colour with a huge beige head. Nice sweet aroma with notes of nuts, spices and dried fruit.
Sweet flavour with notes of dried fruit, nuts and a bit alcohol. Well balanced bitterness. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2005
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.

Gift from Jason in Germany. Full bodied, somewhat sweet with caramel and roasted malt. Worth seeking out. cgarvieuk (25987) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2007
brown with a loose foam head, a caramel malt nose, with a toasted malt warming flavour omhper (25740) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2002
Deep ruby. Complex ose with notes of dried fruit. Malty and reasonably dry. Lingering flavours of fruit, berries and toffee, and complex all the way thruough to the dry and salty finish. Perhaps the rumour is true that one of the brewers from Rochefort is now brewing at Achel? madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2011

Warning! Early amateur rating! Fairly standard Belgian brown beer. Some alcohol and malt sweetness. No complexity but alright.
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) This one has been in my stockroom for at least a couple of years. Almost orange brown color with large quantities of impurities. Sweet with an underlying bitterness, which lasts all the way to the palate. Not particularly full-bodied despite the strength. And not particularly refined either. 221104
