The aroma has fruits like prunes but it also has a malty taste with a tint of alcohol. It pours a brown head, which doesnt last that long. The flavor dominated by the taste of prunes and raisens very well-balanced!

bhensonb (14966) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Aroma of dark, cherryish, fruit. Rich mahogany color, with tiny bubbles and a decent beige head. Thin to medium bodied with moderate, nigh creamy, carbonation. The flavor is light reddish berry and roasted malt. Also raisin and lighter stone fruits. Mouthsmackingly good. The finish tends toward dry, and there is a fruity, dark fruity, coating. Very refreshing. Especially after the Rocheforte 10.

ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2007
Murky red, faint head. Crisp flavor turns into very soft after pouring the yeast in. Feels and tastes like a different beer. Malty aroma is not very strong. Slight hints of yeast in the smooth finish. Well balanced, very nice brew.

radagast83 (7906) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Poured into a Tulip glass. Redish brown color, with an offwhite head. Aroma is pretty malty, with a touch of sweet dried fruits. Reminds me only slightly of the Westmalle Tripel I had from them not too long ago, another solid brew.

Medium head tannish color vanished quicly. Pours a ruby hueish brown. Does not feel watery and has hints of liquorice. Very enjoyable with some nice carbonation, but expensive. $6+ for an 11.2 oz bottle.

TheQuaffer (14) - Epsom, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle from Ghent. A beautiful dark burgundy colour with a short lived creamy head. It has yeasty, malty aroma. Flavour is also malty as well as some fruit. An excellent Trappist beer.

Hammster (187) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - OCT 6, 2007
33 cl bottle. Poured an opaque, deep, dark walnut brown and red with an inch thick head that looked like something on an expensive mocha. Aroma was milder than expected but still complex--cloves, raisins, all spice, and some other dark fruit. Wonderful lacing. The taste, like the aroma, is more subtle than expected. Sweet and dried fruit is noticeable--plum, apricot, and raisins. There is also a little roasted malt note to the flavor. The finish is decent but not what I expect from a trappist. Very good, but for the money I prefer something with not mere complexity but more intensity too.

mmmbeer (1417) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2007
12 oz bottle- aroma of fruit and dirt. Poured dark brown with very nice head formation. Taste something to be desired- consisting of a weak body with heavy carbonation, finish with a slight hop taste. It reminds me of wine that I used to make- and the only reason I made it was to get drunk. One for the BEER-PAGNERS to love and suck its rear...

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2007
From bottle : Pours a dark dark brown with ruby red highlight when held to the light, with a big creamy white head and glourious lacing. Decent amount of carbonation. Nose of plums, bananas, pears, raisons, grapes, and a little yeast. Flavor is just as fruity with a medium body that is bubbley and has a little bitterness on the back of the tongue towards the end.
