3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33 l bottle at Vihreä Haltiatar. Reddish brown color. Sweetish aroma with raspberry, rose, honey and toffee. Taste of honey, raspberry, chocolatey and toffeish malt and ethanol. Aroma is nice and exotic but taste is somewhat muddled, it not particularly malty and nothing really stands, alcohol seem sharp also. Maybe aging would be a remedy but now this is not the Trappist quality I have come to expect.
-pours a cloudy mahogany brown with a small to medium,frothy,sand-coloured head
-Yeast flakes visible at the bottom of the glass
-astringent,cherries,plums,r with a grassy bitterniss
-high bitterniss for the style
-medium to full body
Not as Yeast-heavy as the "True" Belgians.Dark Fruit esters are more prominent in this.
It almost goes into Flanders Red territory with it's Balsamic vinegar note.
A really good and interesting Trappist. DuffMan (10596) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 2, 2017
Bottle. Hazy medium amber with golden highlights and a pillowy beige head. Dark sugars and raisins, bready with spicy undertones and a pleasant warmth in the finish. beerplace (1923) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 17, 2017
330ml bottle from Silpo (thx, Vlad!). BB 2017-06-10. Pours a very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is dried fruits (dates, figs), caramel. Similar taste with some strange bitterness. Quite good. gausti (6) - AUSTRIA - SEP 17, 2017 does not count

Bottle bb 11/2018 light brown color. Woody, whisky, sugary and malty. Malty, iced tea, dried apricot, peach. Full flavor remains for a long time. Legit quad, for whatever reason it's not mind blowing, but still a great accomplishment for the only Austrian Trappist. kapusil (1476) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 7, 2017
0.33l bottle thanks to Cristobal37. Hazy dark brown body with a thin beige head. Aroma of caramel, dark sugar, raisins, plums, whiskey and surprisingly a bit of wood. Taste of caramel, sour cherries, peach, raisins and some whiskey again. Great beer. holdleder (383) - Kongerslev, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2017
