slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAY 22, 2007
750. 06/09?. Pours dark w/ minimal head. Alcohol fumes mix w/ raw sugar. Complex yet muddled palate, still very interesting. The spices are there in the beginning but it ends w/ the yeasty sweet alcoholic Belgian vibe. It’s nice.

Oakes (17158) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2017
Chestnut brown, with a big, even head. Deep, dark fruitiness on the nose - fig, cherry, toffee, raisin. On the palate, soft and smooth, with rich dark fruitiness and soft, sweet sugars, cut by just a touch of alcohol. Big and complex, but smooth, creamy and balanced. Yum.

vinivini (2059) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAY 23, 2017
Muddy bronze ale with dense ivory head. Notable lacing. The aroma is fruity. Apple, pear, plum. Caramel. Vinous. Medium to full body. Complex taste. Nice fruit, caramel, candy, spicy yeast. Some hops. Delicious indeed.

Paladares (226) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 19, 2017
Botella. Color marrón oscuro casi negro. Opaca. Espuma no muy abundante, que desaparece rápidamente. El aroma promete. Fruto rojo, bizcocho, algo de cítrico... Extremadamente densa en boca. Pero muy rica. Múltiples matices. Empieza con un sabor licorado con toques especiados, le sigue un cierto tono a chocolate y en paladar viene el caramelo disimulando muchísimo sus diez gradazos. Muy muy rica.

TychoJames (1255) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2017
Flaska bishops Örebro. Mellanbrun kulör. Doft av jäst, säd, lakrits och torkad frukt. Fyllig och komplex smak. Russin, trä, kakdeg och jäst.

kapusil (1394) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 3, 2017
0.33l bottle. Very dark orangish brown body with a thin off whize head. Aroma of caramel, dark sugar syrup, raisins and figs. Taste of caramel, orange zest, dark sugar, raisins, figs and floral hops. Sweet, dark fruity and complex. Great beer.

Cristobal37 (1090) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle from the abbey. Deep dark brown, thin retaining head. Sugary sweet deep red wine aroma. Taste is more port wine, plum, caramel, bready. Sticky finish with medicinal herbs and fortified wine. Maybe even some banana in there. Not weizen banana, more but akin to Aventinus eisbock for example. Drunk with some chocolate cake, but maybe a cigar would have been better.

kaserov (595) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 23, 2017
Típica belga de casi 11 grados, oscura, impenetrable, con mucha espuma marrón (de textura jabonosa) y carbonatación muy activa. En nariz, alcohol, levadura, dark fruits, especias (menos dulce de lo habitual). En boca lo mismo, con mucho cuerpo y presencia del alcohol al final del trago, así como un leve amargor, pero sin llegar a molestar. El problema es que es un poco facilona y "lo de siempre". Se bebe y se disfruta pero tampoco aporta nada especial.

slowrunner77 (11673) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 18, 2017
Brown with big pillowy off white head. Aroma a touch musty...lots of yeast and plum, slight herbal bready character that’s there in the flavor as well with a hint of bitterness.

McWorta (1627) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 24, 2017
Hazy, light brown with a frothy off white lasting head. Aromas of herbs, sugared oats, fruity esters, some barnyard, caramel. Light tangy, slick and full bodied. Harmonic sweet-bitter overall and hiding its abv pretty well. Lasting light herbal finish. Rather enjoyable.

simontomlinson (289) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Frothy beige head soon left a bubbly cover on a near black still body. Huge aroma of malt, demerara, port, plum & stewed fruits. Light & airy on the palate. Tingly down the throat. Sticky on the lips. Sweet malt tastes with plum, berries, brown sugar, banana, Belgian yeast & very long fruity finish.
