look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 330 ml into snifter.

A: Pours a medium brown with 3-4 finger fluffy off white head. Long lasting retention and plenty of lacing. Gushed all of the counter when I opened it, but smells and tastes OK.

S: Raisin, dates, dark fruits, and sweet caramel. Some Belgian yeast esters.

T: Dark fruits and cherries, candy sugar.

M: Suprisingly light body. Tons of carbonation. Subtle sweet finish.

O: Tasty brew and very easy drinking. Fairly expensive for the ABV. Think I will stick to more Belgian Strong Dark Ales. (535 characters)

On tap at the Achel cafe during last week's trip to Belgium. Reviewed from notes.

Surprisingly, this one was not served in an Achel chalice, but rather just a plain chalice. A bit disappointing.

Pours a medium brown color with a bit off-white head and loads of lacing on the way down. The nose brings some faint notes of dark fruit plus a bit of brown sugar. The flavor is somewhat bitter and a bit too dry in the finish. Mild sweetness and faint dark fruit. Nothing complex or too compelling; probably worth a try though. (524 characters)

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a dirty brown color and a thick, muddy consistency. There was a decent amount of foamy head and some good lacing.

S: Aroma of malt, Belgian yeast and some fruits.

T: Flavored mainly with malts, dark fruit, yeast and spices. Not the most complex of tastes, but alright.

M: A good amount of carbonation and a smooth finish. Full-bodied.

D: On the whole, this was a drinkable beer. I'd hardly put it up with other Belgians, but it's an OK beer. (492 characters)

This beer is the table beer of the Achel monks and is only available on draft in the abbey pub.
Look: pours dark-red-brown color with a small head.
Smell: Malts, yeast, caramel, dark fruits, and some spicy hops
Taste: bitter sweet roasted malts, caramel, hints of dark fruits, some light spices, and a medium bitter hoppy finish. Sounds more complex than it is.
Mouthfeel: Medium-high carbonation with a watery body
Overall: Nice session beer but a bit too flat in taste (473 characters)
