COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mont Des Cats is a trappist abbey in Northern France, a few kilometres from the Belgian border. They do not have a brewery in their monastery, so their beer cannot show the Authentic Trappist Product logo. But it doesnt get much closer they have their beer brewed by the monks of Chimay!
Developed independently to the Chimay range, the beer is a lovely copper colour. The link to Chimay is evident in the distinctive Chimay yeast character, in both the aroma and taste.
A pleasant caramel malt sweetness introduces the beer, being joined by hints of dried fruits, gentle spices and an earthy, herbal hop character. As the beer progresses, the bitterness seems to build toward a nice lingering finish.
The abbey only makes one beer, with no intention for more. The abbey is recognised as a Trappist Monastery, allowing them to use the term on the labeling. But as the beer is not brewed on their own premises, the beer is not a Trappist ale.

HenriqueBraga (125) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 15, 2015
Provavelmente a trapista que menos me atrai. mbar escuro, boa espuma, turva. Aromas de banana passa, laranja, mel, caramelo, casca de po, lcool. Corpo mdio-baixo. Amargor mdio. Aftertaste condimentado, seco, doce, aquecedor.

Salmaneser (135) - BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2015
Looks awful, cloudy, orange beer with minimal white head. Smells and tastes very good though. Sweet smell of caramel and fruits. Sparkling palate and mixed sweet/bitter taste. Good beer.

Nice looking amber beer, but without special aspect. Not a bad beer, but not a beer that I would highly recommend.

Ulysse (469) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2014
Rather weak aroma. Tastes like the regular Belgian ale. Alcohol aftertaste. A bit sweet. One of the less interesting trappist.
