Pilsnertest (296) - SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2017
Bottle at home. 2016 vintage bought at the brewery. Sweet, spicy and yeasty taste with a perfect light bitterness at the end. Taste of cinnamon buns, black pepper, fruit syrup, toast and herbs. Elegant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

W aromacie fenole, estry, rodzynki, figi, drożdże, ciemny chleb, ciemne owoce, wanilia, drewno. W wyglądzie ciemna miedź z lekką beżową pianką. W smaku figi, rodzynki, ciemne owoce, fenole, nuty nalewki, szlachetnych trunków, melasa, złożone i przyjemne. Ciało średnie, degustacyjne, alkohol ukryty, słodkie z wytrawną kontrą. Perfekcyjnie ułożone. Bardzo dobre piwo.

Brown. Bread aroma. Sandy palate. Yeasty. Ripe fruits. Sophisticated. I want some cheese with this.

Bawelt (874) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 24, 2017
Oui c’est bon. Nez porté sur le caramel, des épices, très fruitée (fraise, framboise, abricot sec). Un côté amande genre frangipane. Le tout est très équilibré. Bouche plus épicée et typique trappiste. Assez compliquée à décomposer. On est un rien déçu vu le bouquet fabuleux.

commonmac (1246) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2017
Bottle at the monastery/brewery with commonshawn, rosskyle, samalito, and dubtully. Plum color with off white head. Aroma carries dark fruit at the forefront. Taste reminds me of a lighter version of a quad with dark fruit, sugars, malt. Surprisingly drinkable for the higher ABV. Clean mouthfeel with a bit of alcohol warmth and bite. Boozy without overwhelming the overall experience. This falls under the large shadow of its bigger brother but worthy of nearly equal praise. Good work, monks.

BrewSensei4 (11) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - FEB 20, 2017
Medium dark brown with a lasting head. Taste is lots of red wine and chocolate. Fairly sweet and heavy.

4.4
commonshawn (1259) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Bottle in Ghent. Dark plum color with thick off white head. Tart dark fruit nose. Very complex flavor. Plum, slightly raisin, tart, some yeast, . Rich. Heavy sweetness, well balanced. Currant. Good booziness. Might have had an older bottle. Still excellent.

tanel025 (131) - ESTONIA - FEB 18, 2017
Aroma: like old barn, very old. Taste: something very old, like feeling taste from centuries ago. This is extraordinary, unique. Feels like very aged beer. Excellently balanced, quite shocking to drink such beer. Never forget it.

PlutonowyMan (766) - POLAND - FEB 15, 2017
Barwa ciemno br?zowa z bardzo delikatnymi, rubinowymi refleksami. Piana bia?a, pojawia si? zaledwie na chwilk?. Aromat: delikatne nuty czkoladowe, delikatnie palone, owocowe akcenty, które muszaj? si? z aromatem kakao i pralinek, wanilii i marcepanu. Smak: jest podobnie jak w aromacie, ciemne owoce, pralinki i kakao. Ponownie pojawia si? marcepan mieszaj?cy si? z wanilia. Nasycenie ?rednie w kierunku do niskiego.

john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2017
Bottle. Dark Brown in colour. Very malty (roast malts, chocolate, caramel/toffee, dark sugar). Fruity (dark fruits, raisins, plums, dates). Very spicy (and peppery). Yeasty (lots of floaties), earthy. Sweet with a slight bitter edge. Dryish bittersweet finish. Great depth of flavour. Complex. Wonderful beer! (2008)
