durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Austrian Trappists? Dark brown with garnet edges and a thin beige head with moderate lacing. Mild smoke and burnt sugar on the nose. Molasses notes and some dark fruits. Some chicory and/or anise notes. Taste offers almost a rye-like spiciness and more dark fruits--raisins, figs, plums. Complex, but a bit too much of everything. Too sweet as well, I think.

Gangstergafje (1036) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2017
24-05-2017; fles; at home (bought somewhere in Malmedy, Belgium). The looks of the beer are quite nice. The color of the beer is a lovely dark brown. Strong light shows a ruby red/amber glow. The beer is very very cloudy, and sure seems bottle fermented and unfiltered. On top of the beer there is a lovely layer of soft almond coloured foam. The majority of the foam collapses quickly, leaving a thin but nice and soft drape. The smell of the beer is nice. It smells like a proper dark Trappist beer should smell like. It is quite a warming and sweet smell. I smell sweet malts, caramel, candy sugar, a touch of liquorice and nice bitter hops giving some herbal touches and a nice spicy and also sweet yeast aroma. It is nice. Everything that should be there is there. Lovely. The taste is the same. Quite sweet, warming and heavy, but still balanced. The sweet tones of malts, candy sugar and caramel are balanced by the bitter hops and the yeasty touches. Nice. There also is a nice taste of some alcohol. Exactly like I expected from this beer. Nice. The palate of the beer is good. The beer is smooth, full bodied and with a nice medium carbonation. There is quite some alcohol warmth and a nice full sensation. I like this one.

Syfher (400) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2017
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. Nice brown Trappist ale, with a sweet (but not too much sweet) taste. The aroma and taste is roasted malt and yeast. Drink it if you are looking for a strong Trappist brown, with sweet honey notes.

Corpo e carbonatao mdios. Final intensifica o dulor maltado, em momentos trs leve fumo e novamente passas e figo. Um bom exemplar mas tive a impresso que fica atrs de Rochefort e la Trappe.
