Fris carmal nougat aroma met hinten van citrus. Mooi caramal achtig uiterlijk met een bubbelachtige schuimkraag. Vol karamel hout achtig met een kruidigs pittige bite. Niet geheel samenhangend als andere trappisten maar meer in lagen opgebouwd. Iets minder krachtig en wateriger. ippopotamo36 (2352) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 17, 2015
0,33 bottle purchased in Rome and consumed in Kosovo. Pours avery dark amber color, tick ivory head with some retention. Nose: a bit earthy, dirty dishwater, ripe fruit. Not pleasant. Mouth: crazy carbo, a bit peppery, far too sugary, some syrupy feel. Non my cup of tea. Lore (2661) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 17, 2015
dark amber colour, moderte sized off-white head; aroma of grains, some caramel, floral notes, hints of dried fruits (figs and raisin), and wine cellar notes; taste is similar to a (less bodied) tripel with hints of honey and fruity notes; good ale BillKismet (4041) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Exceptionally high carbonation with large bubbles rising up to feed a poofy off-white head atop a hazy orange-tinged amber body. The nose is an uneasy mix of melanoidin maltyness and skunked hops with some rawhide thrown in. Similarly, the body is of skunky hops, melanoidin maltyness and rawhide notes. Medium-bodied with fizzy mouthfeel. Aged malt quality with a stale, crusty bread finish.

Drank at Brams 20-11 before the tasting. Okay triple-like taste, but a bit watery throughout with a thin body. Rulymel (290) - SPAIN - NOV 13, 2015
Brown colour with a thin head.
Sweet toasted malts, typical tapist yeast.
Taste is not so intese as I spected.
Worse than the classic trapist beer.
Not happy with it. fiulijn (20370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 4, 2015
Bottle at Matt’smcberko (17153) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 4, 2015
Hazy amber color with large head. The aroma first comes with Belgian yeast, then it shows some puke and vegetables, and honey; weird. Smooth mouthfeel; nice flavor of Belgian beer with honey accent; low bitterness.
Not too exciting, but at least it has a true Belgian character.
330mL bottle, pours a cloudy dark orange amber with a small white head. Aroma brings out bubblegum, dark fruits and Belgian yeast. Flavour brings out complex Belgian yeast, a little bubblegum, and dark fruits. Quite complex in the yeast department. Much better than the average ratings suggest. Very nice.

Bottle - Light yellow raisin and butterscotch notes. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Nice caramel notes and some orange and light spice. Nice.
