Flying Saucier-Memphis. My first perfect rating. Wow. Also, my first genuine trappist ale. It came out with a special glass. Just pouring the beer and watching the fluffy head slowly dissipate was a treat in itself. Gorgeous dark color. Magical aroma: Fig, plum, raisin. Some other stuff I dont know how to label. First sip: Heaven. Very complex with more fruit and molasses. Youd never know this was 7% alcohol. You dont even notice it. The flavor changes slightly on the back end. Comes off a little dry. My nose burned slightly. After I swallowed, my stomach felt warm. Just a great, great brew. Save for special occasions. This stuff is expensive. $10 a bottle!

Some caramelly dark sugar, hint dark dried fruit, and rounded-off hop flavour. Medium palate, warming and a touch sweet but still not cloying - refreshing beer for a Dubbel. Cant describe aroma - it is all fine subtle complexity. Finishes fairly clean, highly drinkable for 2-3 servings.

Bottle pours a slightly hazy deep brown with slight redish hints. Small but persistant light tan head and thick sheeting lacing. Nice woody brown sugar and dark pitted fruits in the aroma. Flavor is not so interesting. Light typical belgian yeast notes and soft woody blanket of flavors. Quite hightly carbonated which seems to blast away some of the subtle flavors. Still nice. Light fizzy palatte.

i actually like this better than the tripel, much more deep and extensive taste, with a variety of small subflavors in the finish, from your typical malts, hops, and fruits to more fancy things like caramel

Excellent beer, but not knock-your-socks-off good like some other trappists. Its also not nearly as complex as some, just a simple, really good beer. Has a nice malty nose and flavor that lingers on the pallate. Much better than the trippel, in my opinion. The only other time Ive had this was in Brugge, and I think it was even better there (as expected.)

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2014 Bottle is 4.5 years old, found at liquor store with best buy date of 04/08/11. Dark brown color with small head and good carbonation left after so many years. Aroma is strong with vinous notes, plum, caramel and a light tingle. Flavor has caramel cocoa malts with no bitterness. Very smooth and good drinking overall.
8/4/2007: (7)(3)(9)(3)(1 Dark brown color with medium diminishing head and some lacing. Nice rich malty aroma and flavor. Better than the tripel as there is less alcohol flavor

Flaske. Utrolig flot dybrd-brun farve. Ingen sedimenter men masser af smag. Gav endelig mening for mig.

One of my favorite beers. Strong, smooth taste and a great aroma. This beer had a cloudy body and a strong malty flavor

Nice aroma. Thin head, nice aroma. Lightly malty, a bit fruity, kind of a light trappist ale. Some sediment when you pour, and a nice complex flavour. A good beer... not quite a rochefort, but stands on its own quite well.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2010 Best by 05/16/2008. Sampled in my Westmalle challis. The beer pours to an unfiltered deep brown body with a thin khaki head. The aroma is quite fruity with notes of raspberries amongst the strong port wine and fresh unfiltered grape juice. How the heck does it smell this much like grapes? The flavor is a grapey sweet yeasty tobacco-like malt. The palate is creamy and juicy. Nice medium body.
