3.65/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a rustic looking brown with touches of amber and red. The head starts out big and fizzy from the heavy carbonation, but settles down to a respectable cap. The body is somewhat opaque...I can almost see through it...

Smell: Has a nice, earthy aroma with chocolate and dark fruit standing out the most. A touch of raisons and rum are in there too.

Taste: The first thing that hits me is the carbonation... Now the flavor: it's fairly complex with a nice maltiness that includes chocolate, dark fruits, nuts, a faint breadiness, and a swipe of alcohol. There's a slight phenolic character in there as well. The aftertaste disappears a little too quickly...

Mouthfeel: It's a bit too carbonated for me, as I think it lightens the body too much. It's a bit on the watery side... Very crisp and sharp feeling, with a dry finish that seems to take most of the flavor with it.

Drinkability: I'm not so sure I could drink this on a regular basis, as I can name several other Trappist brews that are head and shoulders above it. Pretty good, but not great. (1,076 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Small 330 ml bottle pours a murky brown color with a huge frothy and creamy off-white head that lasts, light malt and somewhat spicy aroma. Very mild fruity and bready flavor, medium body with very lively carbonation nice clean finish a bit watery palate, very smooth and drinkable alcohol is well hiddin. Lighter than the 8 and 10, still a great brew. (352 characters)

4/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The beer pours a bit of a hazy purple to dark red color with the head pertinent in size, frothy in texture and the lace fine long lasting sheets. Vinous lots of malt, fruit sweet, quite pleasant to sniff with the start ambrosial and the top skinny in feel. Finish is astringent, pleasantly hopped and a nice dry lingering aftertaste. A good beer, not as good as the 8/10, but still a top notch beer nonetheless. (411 characters)

4.2/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Nearly flawless apperance, this lacing on the glass was handed down from the gods. The tawny russet hue is dusted with a bit of haze and shimmers in the light.

Smell: Hint of spice, bread crust, estery alcohol and a smidge of dark fruit show a complex yet inviting aroma.

Taste: Some phenols upfront with a pinch of butteriness, dry bread crust and carob are from the malts. Intricate yeast flavours of nuts with some leftover phenols, light esters and faint fruit round out the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light and deceiving with a nicely lined smoothness within the semi-dry palate.

Drinkability & Notes: This beer is too highly seated to be all alone, some soft cheeses and crackers are an excellent union to take the taste buds to a higher level. (766 characters)

3.53/5  rDev -14.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This bier has a murky, dark chestnut color. The head was initially about 1/2", and a bit rocky. It quickly settled into a fine, thin layer of tightly-packed tan bubbles. Lacing was acceptable. The nose was semi-sweet with dark-fruit notes emanating, though it tended to be on the mild side. I didn't think the body was quite hitting the medium level, and it had a very bubbly carbonation leaving a prickly feel on the tongue. I did get a slight sense of the alcohol, as it warmed me on the way down. Yet, the fruity flavors had a bitter lean to them, and the finish was somewhat dry. I didn't find much complexity in this bier, unlike other Belgians I've imbibed. It was, in the end, a letdown for me. And, to think I paid $6.50 for just under 12oz for Trap 6, compared to $6.50 for 25.4oz of Delirium Noel yesterday!!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This beer poured a dark amber and formed a huge sudsy-foamy off white head that circular lace. Heavy amount of carbonation. An aroma of malt, caramel and spice. A flavor of of malt and spice with some sudsy aspect to the mouthfeel no doubt due to the carbonation. I found the flavor to be a a touch weak compared to others of this style. (337 characters)

Pretty good, but the 8 and 10 are way better, this was a bit sweet, and lacked a bit of character, this however, was very good, i'm only really comparing it to the 8 and the 10. Nice spicy chocolate flavour, but not as aromatic or as tasty as the other two. (257 characters)
