Brussels Trip. Backlog. Caramel, spicy, toast, herbs. Moderate sweet. Bad batch, I suppose.

ardeo (454) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2017
Belle orange fonc�e en 33 cl. Mousse ivoire de belle tenue. Forte carbonatation. Nez : malt, caramel, fruits orange (prune), raisin, miel. Bouche : plut�t sucr�e candi, douce et d�salt�rante, go�ts de pruneau, caramel et quelques spices (coriandre ?). Bonne et complexe comme une Rochefort ... m�me si ses consoeurs naviguent encore a un �tage au-dessus.

(Flasche) Es hat eine kupferne Farbe, ist trüb mit leichten Flöckchen und mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aromas ist heftig, etwas wie Glühwein, vllt die Nelken, und viel Heidelbeere. Der Geschmack ist samtig, heftig, leicht süßlich und sonst wie das Aroma.

Výborné trapistické pivo, s plnou říznou chutí, silným aromatem s tóny kakaa ačokolády a jemnou krémovou pěnou.

Aroma is honney, tea, and caramel. Taste is similar. Hints of Coca-Cola. The 7,5% ABV is very well hidden.

Bitek (728) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 27, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2017 Czerwone owoce, przyprawy, szlachetny alkohol. Srednie cialo, niska goryczka, wysokie wysycenie. Nieco lepsze niz 8, zaskoczenie.

ironcontra (333) - POLAND - JUL 25, 2017
Figs, some chocolate or marzipan in there as well, plums, I see you with the Darjeeling tea. Very volatile head. Phenomenal balance, not too sweet, not tiring at all.
