I’m 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 don’t 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 world’s great beers.

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 alobar (3970) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2007

11.2oz bottle. Mostly sweet aroma with hints of dry and sour yeast. Both fruity and doughy. Raisins, plums, currants, brown sugar, gingerbread, shortbread, dry oak, toffee and caramel. 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. smartlung (159) - Valrico, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2007

A great trappist triple. full flavour spicey well balanced beer one of the best. mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Beautiful beer. I’ve had this gem before, but first time rating it.
Gorgeous pour - chocolate brown color, tan foamy head. Aroma is dominated by those gorgeous dried fruity notes that you love in a Belgian - prunes, plums or raisins. Malty body on the palate seduces your taste buds and makes it difficult to savor this one by drinking this slowly. I love it. Balanced, bold and beautiful. One of the best Belgians and one of the best overall for commercially available beers in the USA. heylrule (46) - Frederick, Maryland, USA - DEC 8, 2007
