biilz (281) - SPAIN - JAN 22, 2018
Аромат весьма солодовый. Также слегка чувствуется темные фрукты и карамель. Цвет темный но прозрачный. Пена с крупными пузырями. Вкус солодовый в основе что странно для типичного Бельгийского эля. Пиво очень сладкое, карамельное, даже на губах чувствуется сахар. Также оно слегка бисквитное на вкус. Пиво не газированное и мягкое что нельзя сказать про достаточно резкое солодовое послевкусие. Секундами можно почувствовать алкоголь. Также ощущаются ягодные нотки. В целом пиво хорошее по всем пунктам, но в сегменте трапийского пива есть куда более интересные и запоминающиеся сорта.

Theydon_Bois (21516) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2018
Bottle at Cambrinus, Bruges, 21/01/18. Rich chestnut brown with a decent light beige cap that dissipates to a swirl. Nose is malt forward, light spice, caramel, sticky toffee pudding, brown sugar melt. Taste comprises sweet malts, caramel, bread pudding, dates, fruit loaf, dried fruits, slight tangy edge. Medium plus body, fine to prickly carbonation, semi drying close. Decent Belgo strong ... holds the ABV well.

AntonyWilson (503) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 20, 2018
330ml Bottle: Pours a clear amber with thick, tan head that retains. Lacing. Aroma of caramel, candy floss and a slight alcoholic note as well. Nice caramel flavours mixed with dark stone fruit and a slight alcoholic warmth. Bitterness is low with full body and mouthfeel. Carbonation is medium to high. Overall i really enjoyed the flavours and aromas, very complex.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2018 Robe pruneau foncé. Une brune qui se boit avec une envie folle, pas du tout écoeurante. Une belle saveur de vieil alcool de fruit, de caramel... J'adore.

malibrat (104) - Pula, CROATIA - JAN 14, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Ovaj Bruin mi je poseban. Ima nekakav 'lagano vinski' miris pomiješan sa tamnim sladom i malko karamele. Okus je isti takav , i makar su ga stavili u Belgian Strongove zbog svojih 8% to je ipak Dubbel ali netipičan zbog te svoje vinske arome. Meni jedna od najdražih Belgijskih tamnijih piva koju mogu često piti.

Dal colore bruno scuro, quasi nero, questa dubbel versa una buona schiuma che svanisce dopo diversi secondi. L'aroma meno intenso rispetto alle altre trappiste dubbel. Il gusto è molto buono e ben bilanciato, con una presenza amarognola del luppolo che la rende molto gradevole da bere, in contrasto al sapore dolce tipico di questo stile. Gradazione alcolica ben nascosta dagli altri sapori. Una buona trappista.

Bitek (858) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 4, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 Suszone owoce, ciasteczka, karmel, nieco przypraw. Alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty. Średnio pełne, niezbyt słodkie, ciut kwaskowe. Wysokie wysycenie, niska goryczka. Bardzo poprawne, lecz jednocześnie takie grzeczne, mało intensywne.

Gangstergafje (1358) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 28-12-2017; bottle; at home (bought at beerwulf.com, part of their Sinterklaas box 2017). The looks of the beer are nice. It is not as dark as some bruin beers can be. The colour of the beer is a lovely ruby red. The beer has a beautiful ruby glow. The beer seems to be crystal clear. On top of the beer a nice layer of light brown soft foam is formed. Foam retention is average. A nice drape is left after some time, so is some lacing on the glass. Not bad. The smell of the beer is rather weak. I smell some typical malt aroma's, that are present in a lot of Trappist beers. They have some nice aromas of caramel, toffee and some candy sugar and syrup. Hops give some spicy notes, but all is not to strong. The taste of the beer is nice. Nice sweet malts, with caramel, toffee and a touch of liquorice. The hops give some nice bitters, earthy and spicy. Yeast gives a creamy touch, but also a slight sour note, bringing balance to the beer. Nice. The palate of the beer is fine. Medium-full body, smooth and slightly creamy texture and medium carbonation. The finish of the beer is nice. It has some alcohol in it, just as some sweet malts and a hint of plum and raisin. All in all, a nice beer. I like it.
