Brought over for a party, consumed by me: Pours mahogany with a creamy head. Aroma is a lot of raisin, some light hoppiness, prunineness, booziness, and yeast. Taste is somewhat sweet, but also a tad dry and winy at points. Loads of fruitiness is a given. Slight underlying bitterness. Easy to drink for the high gravity. Alcohol is generally well hidden enough. Meilby (11791) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2013
Draught @ Pizza Port, Carlsbad, CAyngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2013
Pours dark reddish brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, raisin, plums, alcohol and hint of chocolate. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light bitter with a long warm and fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
On tap at the Pizza Port Carlsbad brewpub. It’s a reddish dark brown beer with a small beige head. Lots of dried fruits on the nose, a little roasted hint, caramel and some alcohol hints. Lacks a bit on complexity, but very nice anyway. Raisins, prunes, caramel, some dark sugar and a touch of bitterness and alcohol in the flavor. Full body, lightly warming and with a silky carbonation. Lacking a little bit on complexity, but it’s definitely a nice quad anyway. Like it. 130813 Geokkjer (7667) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2013

12.7 oz. bottle. Dark brown, short lived light khaki head, a little bit of lacing. Very earthy yet sweet to the nose. Dark fruit, figs, molasses, west coast hops, yeast and alcohol. Taste is really smooth. Silky texture, tamed hops paired with brown sugar plum and raisin with the Belgian yeast adding that spicy element and texture. This is my second one and it is amazing that a few months in the basement has really mellowed out the hops a bit and exposed the complexity of the malt. Really, really like this one.

From slow beer in melbourne, Australia. Boozy nose, fruit and brandy coming through. Big thick mouthfeel with the high abv and tonnes of residual sugar. Lots of roast, but sweet not dry. Belgian yeast comes through, but could use some cellaring to bring all those flavours together and hopefully dry it out a little.
There's a Trappist abbey in California!!

*Bottle conditioned for one year*
Aromas of molasses and dried figs. Mostly dark color and a little cloudy. A minuscule bubble and thin syrup palate make it so the sweet fig and raisin flavors are at the front followed with malt and hints of smokey carmel. With a toffee and bitters finish.

Bottle. Aroma of fig, brown sugar, raisin, creamy ands smooth across the palate that coats your mouth with a toffee and bitter finish. In my cellar for a year and did not really change over that time. M_Sack (793) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 3, 2013
Very dark brown. Chocolate malt aromas with a presence of alcohol. Sweet chocolate, which moves into dry coffee through the mid palate and then a lactose and even cola sweet finish. Impeccably balanced with the alcohol completely hidden except when it hits your head. Great luscious mouthfeel.
