4.38/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Does not look too intimidating in the glass. A nice very white head of about 1 inches but it has a very smooth taste. It goes down easy and you barely notice the 8.5 ABV. I could drink a few of these in a session but be careful standing up. Readily available in Spain at the Carrefour store at a fairly reasonable price. Will be picking up a few more of these in the future. But one question - where are the hops...

Update: still a mainstay in my Spain diet. Much healthier than the fried pork. One of the best non Trappiste triples out there and in Europe it seems to be readily available at about $6 for a four pack. Can't beat that! 2/09/2012.

3.71/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

330 ml. bottle. Golden colour with a dense head that fades leaving a small white cloak all the while. Smell of banana, citrus, spices and coriander. And earthy. Good body, dense palate. Taste of banana, honey, spices, some exotic fruits. Good an enjoyable beer, but beware and drink only one or you'll notice the alcoholo in your head.
