Ocean82 (82) - Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Pours deep dark reddish brown with thin effervescent head. Aromas of malt, apple, fig, phenols. Taste follows. Light mouthfeel and phenolic palate. Good beer but phenolic, plastic aftertaste persists. --- Cheers

Lupulus13 (3) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2017 Bottle from Albert Heijns. Underwhelmed given the reviews. Strong carbonation but weak, watery mouthfeel with bitter taste. Not hugely familiar with the style but not keen to try again

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.

djcampbell (260) - Moravany, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 2, 2017
Výborné trapistické pivo, s plnou říznou chutí, silným aromatem s tóny kakaa ačokolády a jemnou krémovou pěnou.

geolgau (300) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - AUG 1, 2017
Aroma is nice and earthy: honey, caramel, toasted bread, quince jam. Taste is sweet and herbal, slightly bitter. Bitter herbs, caramel, biscuits, fruit jam, burnt sugar. Very good!

3.2
HULK777 (608) - - JUL 31, 2017
Aroma is honney, tea, and caramel. Taste is similar. Hints of Coca-Cola. The 7,5% ABV is very well hidden.

3.9
Bitek (730) - 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.
