il_vosa (8) - Torino, ITALY - DEC 4, 2016 does not count
Well, it is difficult to review such an icon for every beer lover; The aroma is of citrus and fruity; The apearence is absolutely great with the characteristic red/brown colour; But it is when it came to the taste that i was disappointed: an intense taste of fruit and malt with a tail of alchool and bitterness. Too far away of what I consider the best beer of the world, nothing special or different from the houndred trappist beers, and absolutely not worth such a big price.

CraftyHare (34) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2016
330ml bottle pours very dark brown with thick foam beige head. Strong aromas of cider, dried fruit, yeast and alcohol. Tastes of pear, apple, yeasty bread, caramel malt, brown sugar and spice. Rounded, full bodied mouth feel with a long finish and a touch of fruity tartness. A very honed and refined example of a great beer style. Is it worth paying an exorbitant price for the privilege of sampling a benchmark beer from a tiny trappist brewery run by monks? Absolutely.

Copid (52) - POLAND - DEC 3, 2016
W aromacie sporo suszonych owocw, karmelu, toffi i estrw. W smaku gęste, przyjemnie oblepiające, spora słodycz, rodzynki i przyjemna goryczka. Alkohol ładnie ukryty. Bardzo dobry quad, ale przehajp jest spory.

BlackBeerPG (396) - Darien, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Taste: Bold bready, rich earthy malts, raisins, dark fruit, chewy, and balanced. Big malt and dark bread nose. Dark Mahogany in color, semi opaque with big head of sticky lace. Medium/Full body. Liquid bread, no wonder the monks could survive on this during fasting.

Minimlis, azonnal eltűnő hab, sttbarna szn. Illata karamelles-kandiscukros, enyhn konyakos s prklt malts, aszalt gymlcskkel prosulva. Karamelles-kandiscukros zekkel indt, a cscsponton gymlcsk, - szilva, barack - valamint konyakos aromk trnek előre. Hossz lecsengse karamelles, prklt malts, pici konyakkal s hajszlnyi keserűvel. Testes, mgsem telt el, sőt tulajdonkppen friss hats, sznsavtartalma erős, de selymes. Nagyon finom, kiemelkedő sr, nem hiba van akkora hre.

Grisza77 (607) - Poznań, POLAND - NOV 25, 2016
Brunatne, mętne piwo na dnie z osadem ze średnią pianą, ktra zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w formie warstewki na powierzchni. Aromat bardzo przyjemny, rodzynki, ciemne winogrona, zioła. W smaku niespotykanie ułożone, lekko rodzynkowo słodkawe, a z drugiej strony ziołowo goryczkowe czy nawet lekko kwaskowe, bardzo pełne z lekkim rozgrzewaniem alkoholowym w przełyku, ale w pozytywnym sensie. Goryczka średnia w stronę wysokiej, krtka, szlachetna. Oglnie chyba najlepsze piwo jakie piłem do tej pory, nie ma w nim przypadku, wszystko jest w punkt, esencja piwa.

Derbeth (766) - Krakw, POLAND - NOV 25, 2016
Rocky head that does not stay long, black colour with ruby reflexes. Aroma is not very intensive, with raisin, candy sugar, figs, alcohol. Light sweetness, light bitterness - more sweet than Rochefort 10. Lively carbonation. I dont feel any magic in this beer.

kyzr (1393) - Montana, USA - NOV 24, 2016
Dark brown pour with giant brownish head. Big dried fruity nose. Flavor is plum, with raisin, malt, spice, alcohol and toasted nut. Great full flavor with one of the best textures ever.
