Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into a chalice, served at cellar temp.
The darkest of the three Trappistes. This is a dark Chestnut beer with a 1 finger tan head. Beer is actively carbonated. Also, unlike the other two I don't see any sediment.
Aroma is simple of brown sugar bread and molasses.
Taste: Like the aroma, simple brown sugar without any fruit.
Notes: This is supposed to be the Flagship of the Trappiste fleet? This is perhaps the least complex and interesting of all of them.
Well, I've now had all three Trappistes. I must say I am underwhelmed and disappointed. While not bad, none of the three captured my imagination. The Trappiste ales are dark and sweet but lack the raisin/ plum/ date/ fig flavors that would make them special. I'm glad I tried them but I can't see myself buying these again.

4.35/5 rDev -3.5%

Pours an opaque deep brown with caramel highlights and more beige, dense, creamy head than body. Thick sheets of lacing line the glass walls. The head lingers and is so dense, it climbs above the rim.
Prunes, raisins, figs, bruised apple and burnt sugar form the initial aroma. Gives the impression of a rum-soaked fruitcake. Notes of cola add complexity.
Flavor is intensely sweet and bready, with prunes, pear, banana, and raisins underlying. Toasted, caramelly malt forms the backbone, but the dark fruit character dominates. The finish is slightly dry and boozy.
Body is on the full side, with low carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.
Very complex, estery character, with enough alcohol to warm the belly, but not detract from the experience. Truly a beauty of a beer.
