3.55/5  rDev -21.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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.

Mouthfeel: decent

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.

This is my first review, ever.

I've spent a few weeks tasting all of the Trappist ales.
Yes, including the elusive Westvleteren 12.

I think this one is my favorite:

Appearance: Pours nearly black into a St. Bernardus chalice.
Light tan head, very foamy, clinging lace.

Smell: SO hard to describe. It smells like the first girl you fell in love with. It's sensual and musky. Cinnamon, clove, fig. Dark fruits and an unapologetic wave of alcohol. Almost perfumed, like a forbidden Marrakech harem. Incredibly lovely and appealing.

Taste: Mysterious. A sipper. Dark and fruity. Then a sudden burst of pure alcohol in the aftertaste. The 11.3% ABV suddenly kicks in your door.

Mouthfeel: Velvety.

Overall: Cognac-like. Not a beer for gulping down after a workout or something. A beer for sitting around a fire, for sipping while reading a favorite book. It usually takes me around 2 hours to finish a 12 oz bottle of this beer. Time well spent.

4.35/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A--Deep reddish-brown color. When poured into a tulip glass, it has a beautiful 3-finger light tan head. The head settles into a thin layer and leaves heavy lacing.
S--burnt sugar, nutmeg, caramelized fruit, black cherries. Other reviewers mentioned hints of banana, which definitely made an appearance.
T--tons of malt, as expected. Slightly nutty (cashew/hazelnut). The alcohol is barely noticeable until a tiny bite at the finish. Virtually no bitterness.
M--impossibly creamy. It has a smooth, sticky consistency that can best be described as similar to whole milk. Carbonation is perfect--slightly fizzy, but this beer is thick enough that it doesn't jump out at you.
O--A bit pricey ($5.75 for a 330mL bottle), but totally worth the splurge. Those Trappist monks certainly know what they're doing--it's always a cool experience to consume a product made from a centuries-old recipe.

4.53/5  rDev +0.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: A dark, rich, bold brown with a diminutive head and moderate lacing. The color at the edges of the glass harks back to childhood memories of chocolate flavored tootsie pops.

S: A smooth malty aroma with a light hint of the fruity characteristic common of Belgian Quads such as Abt. 12.

T: Chocolate dominates the flavor, somewhat overshadowing the fruitiness in the nose. Although, the rich date and raisin taste still lingers in the back ground in a pleasant balance.

M: Light carbonation with a smooth mouthfeel that plays well with the malt.

O: This is a fantastic offering deserving your purchase. Buy one and share it with a friend and then buy another to keep for yourself.
