3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Not a headknocker, but pleasant enough. Cream colored head itself has nice, spicy, candy taste. Nice brown beer with orange highlights, shows bubbles drifting up as sediment settles down. Taste brings out oranges, raisins, a bit of wine and light spiciness, on a well-warmed, rather that roasted, malt base. Comes off like a fresh barley wine. May not be the very best of its kind, but darn close, and its alcohol warmth makes a nice way to break a Lenten abstinence of over a month (and circumstances kept me away from home where I had a store of actual Trappist ales to enjoy on Easter. This was a good substitute).
a bottle at the Cafe Bastille. Aroma: oxtail soup, bread. Appearance: opaque dark brown, 5mm. tan head dissipating rapidly. Palate: full-bodied and thick, lively carbonation, long and complex malty finish. Taste: heavily bitter, lacks the sweetness of the tripel and is better for it, vanilla notes at the finish. Great beer. azzurro (246) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2017

almost black color with beige head, but head retention isn’t very strong. smells roasted malts, molasses, burnt sugars and slight banana (like all other la trappe styles). taste is a bit sweet. medium bodied and overly carbonated. clean aftertaste. I would love this more if there is more abv and dryness. MarcoBasile (415) - DENMARK - JUN 27, 2017
Pours a semi clear brown body with a beige frothy head.
