Bottle, 330ml. A dark black colour with an average-size lasting head. Sweet aroma with some chocolate and toffee. Taste is magnificent: very malty, strong chocolate, caramel, slightly woody. A rather sweet, bitter finish with a fair amount of alcohol. Somewhat tannic with some dark fruit (plum, raisin/currant). Moderate carbonation (just right). If I was guessing the ABV, Id say about 8% - doesnt seem as alcoholic as it is. Rather like a super-charged Imperial Stout. This is finely balanced and surprisingly easy to drink.

Pours a very dark color with a big head. Flavor is velvety, with lots of toffee. Mine had lots of floaties in it too, which I love. The complexity of this beer is amazing. Also some citrus and fruit coming to mind....and just a hint of alcohol. Yea, the alcohol is really well hidden for 11.3%. This is an outstanding beer, one of the best I have had.

Very murky brown with off-white froth. Aromas of a million spices and fruits. Bursting with flavors. Sweet fruits mostly. Not much carbonation and the alcohol is very well hidden. Fairly full body and excellent mouthfeel. Incredible.

Had this one and the 8..The main difference is the taste of the alcohol content. The 10 being a little stronger than the 8.Still a very drinkable high quality Trappist brew I highly recommend picking these up if you can find them sweet,malts,spice,creaminess its all here a true pleasure for sure!

UPDATED: APR 10, 2007 Bottle. Tons of complexity in this one through entire beer. Pour is murky brown and copper. Thin head fades quickly, but remnants on edge of glass. Aroma and taste are malt, spice, alcohol, and almost a sweet syrup (tasted more of this as it warmed). Love the layered flavors in this one.

Absolutely delicious. I didnt realize what I was getting till after I bought it then read the reviews on this site, and I most certainly agree. My new favorite by far.

Definitely a strong brew. Smooth, Malty, and very complex. I could sense the alcohol coming through as the beer got a bit warmer. I found the particles floating around rather interesting. Very unique.
