Bottle. Aroma of berries, sweet malt, lightly hopped. Pours a deep mahogany opaque color. Medium-bodied, sweet, well balanced malt. Strong alcohol on the tongue with a bitter finish. Light bubble carbination that I didnt expect - almost like a sparkling wine. Glad I finally got to try it, its an excellent beer.

Pours a brownish red in color. Plenty of carbonation going on after the pour. A nice ring of froth around the perimeter of the glass. Aroma is dark fruits, mostly plum. But now Im starting to get some spice in the nose as well.
Taste is luscious dark fruits, with plenty of carbonation. Im going to let this one breathe and warm up a bit. I imagine it will only get better.
This thing is very good. The carbonation has died down a bit, and now there is some dark cherry notes coming through as well. This is a world class brew. Im going to have to stock up and age a few of these.

beerheart (237) - Erie, Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Im such a fan of the Belgian strong ales and Trippel/Quadrupels. This is a true Trappist brew. Malty, yeasty. This pours a beautiful deep caramel brown with a long-lasting tan head. The aromas of caramel, apricots, toasted malts, spices, delight as the beer warms---and dont taste until it has warmed! Full, medium-bodied mouthfeel. The taste more than lives up to the preview provided by the pour and aromas. This is a complex, yet care-crafted and well-balanced, combination of toasted malts, coffee, brown sugar, raisins, currants, plums, oak. This is one of the worlds great beers.

TrefwoordPunk (1047) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2007
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a dark purplish brown with a thick brown head and a smell of caramel, dark chocolate and sweet ripe fruits. Taste is a complex mixture of caramel, black coffee, dark chocolate, spice, banana, alcohol, raisin, vanilla, brown sugar and more. Has a nice long spicey finish and the alcohol will keep you warm on cold days. Great

A slight tartness at the end. Pours dark chocolate brown with a fizzy and creamy but thin off white head. Plenty of pitted fruit and dry and sour yeast flavors on the tongue. Brown sugar, white pepper, oak. Creamy, lively carbonation, finishing both sweet and tart.
