jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Russet brown with a one-finger beige head. Raisin and brown sugar dominates the reticent aroma, which also gives hints of cocoa, spice, and citrus zest. The flavors not so shy, with a deft balance between raisin-and-fig sweetness and herbal bittering hops and orange zest. The result is a big beer that drinks small, a somewhat brooding beer that ends up bright and fresh. Very well done.

Bottle. Deep brown taste. Boozy. Sippable. A little tart. Pretty good. More like a Belgian strong ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fra flaske p Tap1 mai-13: jul p italiensk kan trygt anbefales. Inspirert av belgiske klosterl iflg. importren. En elegant hyllest til de belgiske klosterbryggerne!

jesperhammer (4580) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2013
24-MAY-2013, bottle @DE lfestival 2013. Clear amber with tan head. Weak, sweet aroma of malt. Taste is much better with bread, dried fruit, nuts. Above average body and very soft carbonation. No real bitterness. Tasty, but not as good as the Belgians.

Holmen2 (3437) - NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
Almost black in colour with a hint of red. Arome of dark caramel and prune cake. Good taste, that that is reminiscent of both dark Belgian trappist ale and old ale of the UK.

dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle poured into glass. Most certainly an interesting beer. Aroma carries with it hints of orange, citrus, dark dried fruits and brown sugar. Sort of complex but still very drinkable.

HonusWagner (2155) - Florida, USA - APR 15, 2013
A slightly above average Belgian strong dark thing, with a bit of the usual sweet fruity estery component you expect and then some slight orange peel. Drinkable, but totally whatever.
