Bottle 0,33L. Hazy, dark chestnut color with average big, fizzy, light brown head that goes away fast. Big yeasts sediment. Strong aroma of dried dark fruits, caramel and alcohol. Taste starts slightly sweet with a lot of dried dark fruits, than turns to light to medium bitter finish with a lot of mentioned fruits and some Belgian yeasts. Ive aged it almost two years after date of exp. and next time Ill buy it, Ill try it fresher.

Bottle from Beerbaboon - pours nutbrown with an off-white head. Taste is incredible fine / body smooth. Vanilla, bitter chocolate, milk chocolate, christmas spices, lots of marzipan. Cant believe the spectrum and the craft of the monks. seems so easy this one. alcohol is well hidden. carbonation medium, very fine. could drink this till the end...

Egy sr a bakancslistmrl. Nagyon testes, szles spektrum ital. Barnacukros, melaszos, kekszes betsekkel, nagyon enyhe kvs felhanggal. Elg komoly, bzs sznű, tarts habbal. Az aptsgi srk kzl kiemelkedő darab.

Ciemne z książkową pianą. Drobnopęcherzykową i trwałą. W zapachu leśne owoce, triszkę karmelu i końskiej derki. Disyć wysoko nasycone. Gładkie i lekkie. Grzejące. Bez efektw wow

33 bottle at home. Aroma is dried fruits and caramel. White foam, staying for a long time. Taste is dried fruits, brown sugar, caramel. i didnt feel the alkohol. In my bottle carbonation was very high.Very easy to drink, interesting but definitive not my best beer on the world. Zetknięcie z legendą raczej na minus, piękny ciemny kolor, utrzymująca się piana ale strasznie wysokie wysycenie i cała masa osadu na dnie. Aromat piękny, owocowy, w smaku bardzo dobre, alkohol niewyczuwalny. Bardzo pijalne, ale zdecydowanie dla mnie to nie jest najlepsze piwo na świecie

Bottle at home. Thanks to Theydon for a trade for this one. Pours a murky dark brown with a good white head that remains. Aroma is Brown sugar, treacle, molasses. Taste is dried fruits, treacle, brown sugar, the sweetness fades into and a little tobacco and leather emerge. Really soft carbonation. Complex and interesting stuff.

The bottle I had was slightly oxidized, unfortunately. Even though the glass was freshly washed, the foam did not stay. Taste intense of dried fruit and nuts. Expected the taste to stay longer on palate.
