Pours orange/amber, small head. Smells yeasty, and a bit vinegary. Tastes malty and sweet, with a huge yeast presence. Spices, mild sweet citrus, bread, bit of salt. Finishes slowly, with sweet spiciness and pepper.

Gangstergafje (870) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2017
During pouring some big chunks of sediment came out of the bottle. I stoped pouring immediately to see what was wrong, but I cant say anything was wrong. Maybe the rather cold storage place has created some protein sediments or such. The beer itself looks nice, accept for the big flakes floating around. The color of the beer is a nice peachy quite red orange. The beer is cloudy (and flakey). On top of the beer a nice slightly off white foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly, leaving a nice thin creamy drape. The smell of the beer is nice. It has a nice Belgian Ale smell, full of yeast aromas. For me, that is what makes Trappist special. Most of them are quite yeasty. There is a nice doughy and raisiny, rather sweet yeast smell. Besides this there are nice malt aromas. There arent really sweet malt aromas. The malts and yeast together are somewhat creamy. There is a nice hoppy sour and bitter twist, a bit floral and grassy. This forms a nice twist to the cream yeast and malt. Good smell. The taste of the beer is nice. Not as yeasty and creamy as the smell though. There are besides the plain malt features also some licorice tones. The sweet and creamy yeast is not so much present. The liquorice is a bit to strong in my opinion. A tiny bit out of balance. Hops are not clearly present in the taste. The palate of the beer is quite simple. Medium body, a bit creamy texture, but not to creamy, and medium to high carbonation. The finish is a bit weird. It has that liquorice in it, that is a bit to strong. I dont really like this part. It seems a tiny bit out of balance somehow. Not bad, but not the best Trappist Ive had.

PlutonowyMan (637) - POLAND - DEC 16, 2016
Barwa miedziano brązowa, minimalnie mglista. Piana biała, średnio wysoka, trwała, zbudowana z drobnych pęcherzykw. Aromat słodowy, karmelowy z ziołowymi akcentami. Smak: podobnie jak wyżej, jest karmel, choć tutaj delikatnie wycofany, słodowość i nuty ziołowe. Na finiszu delikatne akcenty owocowe kontrowane przez ziołową goryczkę. Niestety delikatnie wyczuwalny alkohol Wysycenie wysokie, bardzo szybko powoduje uczucie sytości.

ddesprez (61) - Saint-Marcel, FRANCE - NOV 7, 2016
Avec sa couleur rouge intensive, la Benno voque une belle journe ensoleille dautomne dans la valle du Danube. Aprs un dbut subtil, les houblons dAlsace dgagent toute leur force et leurs pices. Porte par dagrables armes de malt, cette bire Trappiste sachve par une amertume harmonieuse et intensive

Zilverenmaan (94) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 4, 2016
Heerlijk moutig, ietwat karamel-zoetig met lichte hoppige afdronk. Zeer aangenaam bier, beetje flauw wel , zelfs voor een bier van 6,9.

Bulk_Carrier (4534) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - OCT 27, 2016
Poured into a chalice, the appearance was a ruddy burnt brown color with a thin eggshell white foamy fingers worth of head that quickly dissipated. Mild lacing. The aroma starts off with clean sweet Belgian bready/yeasty malts. Red delicious apples, subtle spice (far underneath) and some caramel to toffee malts. The flavor leans Belgian sweet. Apples do make a nice crisp sweet presence with the malts. Spices once again are far underneath. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Low carbonation yields a huge smooth malty backbone. Overall, nice Dubbel that I would have again.
