Bottle (330ml from Peckhams, Glasgow):
Lots of depth to it and plenty going on. Starting with some dark fruits, mainly raisin and plum along with a lot of spice and some burnt sugar. There is some alcohol to begin with and some chocolate with a bit of caramel too.
Dark brown colour that has maroon tinges in it and is topped with a bubbly tan head that starts about a thumbs width tall and halves in size where it stays for upwards of a couple of minutes.
Dark fruit and a lot of sweetness; there is dates, plum, raisins and sugar to name but a few. There is also maybe just a slight bit too strong an alcohol burn from it towards the end.
Medium bodied and very smooth indeed with medium to strong carbonation, a lot of spice and great depth with some alcohol but this is hidden well for the most part.

Almost perfect beer, if only it were ever so slightly weaker in the alcohol department it could be classed as unbeatable. It had it all, a great mix of flavours and with plenty going on and a huge alcohol content that was hidden a lot better than I would have imagined.

Dette er bare en af verdens bedste øl. Så kompleks og alligevel så rund i smagen. Den kan det som belgiske øl bare kan: Henrykke gang på gang. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a world class beer. I compare it to the sacred Westy 12. Easier to find and a very enjoyable, complex beer . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dzudohonor (167) - POLAND - JUL 16, 2017
Aromat to ciemne suszone owoce, cukier trzcinowy, spieczona skórka od chleba. Smak: czekolada, rodzynki, wędzone śliwki, czarna porzeczka, pumpernikel, karmel, melasa, oleiste, alkohol dość dobrze ukryty. Pite n-ty raz, ale za każdym następnym już nie robi takiego wrażenia jak na początku. Podobnie sprawa się ma z Westveleren XII.

Bijl (636) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2017
Heel donkerbruin met rode gloed, troebel, beige schuimkraag die vrij snel inzakt. Aroma: Donker fruit, rozijn, karamel, toffee, chocolade, donkere geroosterde mout. Smaak: Karamel, toffee, zoetig maar niet te zoet, geroosterde mouten, donker brood, chocolade,  donker fruit, rozijn, wijnachtig, flink kruidig en peperig gehopt.  Een prima hopbitter... zeker voor een Belgische trappist. Lekker Wat alcohol warmte die uitnodigen om te sippen. Volle body, zacht, romig en dik, voldoende koolzuur, afdronk is kruidig , zoet en ook iets bitter en ook plakkerig. Heerlijke volle Trappist.
