Cryotek (206) - Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Initially i thought it was cask’d. Very dry woody feel. Fruity in scent and taste with normal belguim accents of spice and yeast. Rich and malty also. Nice.

GhostS (488) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 5, 2017
Aromă plăcută, tipic belgiană (în context de bere), cu multă caramelă și fructe fermentate, fructe uscate înmuiate în rom, drojdii belgiene. Gust plăcut, ușoară dulceață cu multă caramelă, fructe uscate și miere întunecată, puțină amăreală, accentuându-se pe planul doi și în final, ușoară ”înțepătură” de limbă caracteristică berilor belgiene, ceva tărie și drojdii belgiene, note de frunze și ierburi uscate în final. Foarte bună. O belgiană ”curată”, bine balansată și foarte plăcută.

Zilverenmaan (265) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2017
Aroma welcoming fruity caramel malts, somewhat spicy, alcoholic though. Taste mostly candi sugar, rather sweet even, less dark fruits, alcohol present again. MF creamy at first but slight alcohol burn taking over. Not bad but looks and tastes a little thin to warrant the alcoholic kick.

higgsbison (261) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2017
Normal Belgian monastic characteristics. Long lingering mild sour aftertaste. Good but not my favorite Belgium. Nicely balanced bitterness. I let my last sip warm up to almost room temperature and much preferred it warm ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Luneylane (226) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - SEP 10, 2017
A bottle from the basement of 101. Aroma: oxtail soup, malt. Appearance: hazy dark brown, pours a tan head, dissipates to bubbly lacing. Palate: medium-bodied and slick, average carbonation. Very bitter, rather peppery finish. Taste: heavily bitter, more peppery than I would expect, the bitterness lends an unfortunate metallic note. Good beer, but give me the tripel any day.

BeerLieutenant38 (156) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 23, 2017
Pours deep burgundy colour, with abundant tan head. Aroma of brown sugar and raisins. Fairly sweet flavour, with the fruitiness coming through as well as some caramel. Finish has a touch of dryness. Alcohol warmth is present but reasonably mellow. Slightly sticky texture to the mouthfeel, along with some fairly active carbonation. All round a delicious beer. Great winter brew.

geolgau (417) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - AUG 20, 2017
Malty, sweet aroma of dark fruits like raisins and figs, caramel and toasted bread. Taste is nice also, sweet as you would expect. Nice!

aleanguz91 (96) - Grignasco (NO), ITALY - AUG 18, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2017 Birra color rame scuro. Schiuma beige abbastanza persistente. Al naso caramello e uvetta. In bocca note di liquirizia prevalse dal forte aroma del caramello;avverto sul finale un leggero sentore di prugna. Retrogusto amarognolo - liquoroso. Forse troppo gassata.
