Does it get any better? I believe all the hype over this beer, I couldn’t fault anything! Dark fruits, earthy aroma, a full bodied Trappist Ale, sensational!

Tasting notes are: tobacco honey, wild honey, dark honey, molasses, dried fruit, raisins, resin, toffee, cream. Needless to say, there is a reason this goodness is so popular. It’s just that some beers are better than others. The next best trappist doesn’t even come close.

Trying side-by-side with ABT12 for comparison. This one’s a bit darker, longer lasting head by comparison. It’s got a bit more complexity, something in the background is even chocolate-y. Some more wine and dark cherry to it. A bit drier than the Bernard too, a little bitterness added, which is a +++ for the style.

Bought two bottles while in Germany. Enjoyed both in a glass on separate days. Purchased them because I saw them for sale once and failed to utter first time. I was lucky to have a second chance. Each 33cl bottle cost about €7.20. The beer tasted as good as I could have imagined. Look, Aroma. Head, mouth feel were all a delight. It has been about Ten months since I had the beer, it was the pinical of my enjoyment of beer brewing craftsmanship. It was €144.00€ for 20 in a case. In my opinion, worth it if you can get access to them. Only brewed in A Belgium Monistary, bread, caramel, chocolate, resin, caramel, raisin, black, cloudy, brown foam, heavy cloying sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, full body, thick feel, lively, long finish,

fenouil (21) - courbevoie, FRANCE - JUN 29, 2017
Nez malté, fruité, fruits noirs, trace de pruneaux, traces de caramel et de sucre roux. Beaucoup de puissance au nez qui annonce une très belle bouche. La mousse couleur café est incroyable d’onctuosité et de belle tenue. La bouche est tout simplement magnifique avec une attaque puissante tout en gardant une réelle élégance . Très complexe, la finale est soyeuse. Une très belle longueur, comme un grand vin. Magnifique !

Pours dark cherry with a fairly robust lacing that quickly dissipates. Aroma is cherry, fig and vanilla. Lives up to the expectation

gurussi (16) - Curitiba, BRAZIL - JUN 22, 2017
Cerveja encorpada de corpo baixo, boa carbonatação, no aroma sente muita fruta seca (uvas,ameixa..). Ao beber é seca o que difere muito das belgas comuns. Vale cada centavo pago. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

labeerinthum (901) - Milano, ITALY - JUN 21, 2017
Bottiglia BBE 4-2018. Il gusto al naso trova maltato, fruttato, fichi, prugna, miele e caramello. L’intensità olfattiva è molto elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è considerevole e pregevole. Il cappello color ocra di schiuma molto compatta ha una discreta resistenza e termina con merletti a contornare il bicchiere. La grandezza delle bollicine è medio-fine. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Il perlage è costituito da bollicine medio-fini. La carbonazione è nella norma e persistente. Il colore è ebano. Il corpo è strutturato ma duttile. Il dolce è medio in buon equilibrio con l’amaro medio. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono lunghe e di birra impegnativa a causa dell’elevato tenore alcolico. Il finale è complesso. Il retrogusto è intenso. In bocca l’aroma restituisce percezioni di orzo, cereali, fiori, alcol invadente, vaniglia, prugna, miele e caramello.
