GuillaumeB (7) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2017 does not count
Brune avec mousse blanche et cr?meuse tr?s persistante, ar?me complexe et sensation en bouche extr?mement douce. L’alcool est peu pr?sent. Bi?re vraiment fantastique.

Bottle from brewery. Wow. This beer is a big hug in a glass. At first, you think mmm nothing special here, bland. But in time, it develops into a warming beer. The alcohol is well balanced, taste of chocolate and wine. I might prefer it to the 12. Supremely delicious and not for the taste, but the feeling. The feeling is everything.

At In De Verde. Nice beer, complex, without a flaw. Worth the way here to try it.

Brown color, large beige head. Aromas of yeast, toffee, raisins, candy sugar, spices and bananas. Surprisingly bitter taste of alcohol, yeast, leather, dried fruits and spices. Feels a bit off during the finish.

Aromas of mud and earth. Pours a dark brown with a fluffy tan head. Taste of spice with a lingering bitter dark chocolate palate. Exceptional.

From Mikkeller And Friends Bottle Shop in Copenhagen: pours mahagony with pretty beige head. Aroma is yeast, complex fruitiness, some earthiness. Nice dry hoppy bite. Low sweetness. Excellent mouthfeel. I get scared of BSAs these days because of sugar or imbalance risks, but this pulls it off without flaw. Reminds you why these beers inspired a generation.

Finally able to rate this one, not that I haven’t tasted it enough already but In finally reminded this one was still left unrated.. . Sweet rounded creamy aroma with hints of malt and a slight touch of grapefruit. Smooth mouthfeel, initialy sweet, fruity, evolving into a roasted dry malt finish, which lingers for quite some time. Complex, powerfull but perfectly balanced beer. Superior to the Twelve in my opinion and the best dark Trappist.
