Panzerfaust (849) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle from Whole Foods Market, Coddingtown, Santa Rosa, California. Pours a dark brown color with reddish hues and a giant long-legged off-white head that diminishes slowly into a perfect lacing and film. Smell is yeasty, fruity with some earthy and lactic touches. Very complex! It has notes of toffee, milk, dulce-de-leche, blueberries, blackberries, black currants, raisins, overripe apples, liquor, banana with palm syrup, sour cherries... I could keep going all day. The earthy smell is more obvious after a while. Taste is incredibly complex and intense, showing different aspects in every part of the mouth. Sweet and fruity flavor that shows notes of berries, cognac, honey, toffee, earth and nuts. This is a collossal Abt. Highly warming, it leaves a trail of warmth down the throat and the esophagus. Finish shows some booze. Different and so much more complex than anything else I’ve tried so far.

Clear dark brown with nice thick beige head. Aroma is plums, raisins, berries, bread and yeast. Taste is nice sweet and fruity with some chocolate hints. Nice complex mouthful. Medium body. Good beer, little bit boozy.

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.

Så er der belgisk øl for alle pengene. Stor smag af belgisk gær, humle og karamel.

Black current, stone fruits, golden syrup, molasses, roasty aroma and backed up by an eaqualy complex yet delicious taste. Rich creamy body witha crisp finish and a lingering alcoholic warmness. A meal in itself. A delicious heavy hitter!
