ClubGonzo (5653) - Bergen, - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle from Bieresgourmet webshop. In honor of todays news that Stift Engelszell is now officially a Trappist (TM) brewery, I can think of nothing better than to try their first creation - congratulations to the fine Austrian branch of the famous "Beer Order". :-) Pours a deep, near-black brown opaque body with a medium cloudy light beige head. Nose is chocolate, grains, yeast tones, nutmeg and dark malts, with hints of wood and herbs in the back. The yeasty notes kinda reminds me of the slurry gathered on the bucket bottoms of some of my darker home brews, which is a bit of a minus but hey, this is not bad. Taste is some nearly sour-ish caramel and chocolate tones up front, then grains, bitter herbs, burnt sugar and hints of grass in the finish. Softer carbonation than the Belgians, with a medium to thick texture and mouthfeel. Also, its somehow a bit more assertive than most other Trappist brews in the same league, with pronounced, near-roasty chocolate-like elements. I was expecting a sweeter brew, more in line with either the other BSA/Quads of its kind, or perhaps a hefty German doppelbock. This is neither, but instead a dark ale almost on the verge of becoming a mild sort of stout. Original for sure, and definitely proving that Trappist beers range wider than the traditional representatives. Rather tasty as well, but nowhere near its more famous brethren Im afraid. Still: cheers for Engelszell and welcome aboard the Trappist Ark! :-)

Marrom escura e intensa turbidez, espuma marrom clara de mdia formao e persistncia. Aroma carregado de figo, malte, passas, licor. Paladar de intenso dulor, amargor residual. 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.

Marstonlad (852) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours murky dark brown with a little head. The aroma features prominently fudge and caramel with dried fruitiness - seems to be on the sweet side of beers. Taste offers initially caramel and fudge, later also raisin, with a touch of earthiness. Sweet maltiness provides a strong platform on which ripe fruitiness and earthy, yeasty nuances add details. The palate is medium to full bodied with a slightly harsh mouthfeel, carbonation seems too high. Alcohol is a warming presence in the background with some influence in the taste as well. Rich flavours but does not reach the heights or the balance of the classics in this style.
