Bottle dated 280114. Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a chalice. It pours hazy brown due to sediment with a frothy white head. The head quickly dissipates and leaves a little bit of white head on the top. Bubbles can be seen meeting the head, indicating high carbonation. The aromas of caramel, fig, roasted malt, and Belgian yeast hit the nose. I can also detect a small amount of alcohol. The taste is sweet, but not too sweet. The flavors of caramel and fig go a long way towards covering up the alcohol content, but the faint taste of alcohol is there. The mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation and a dry finish. The carbonation prepares you for the next drink. This is very easy to drink. Overall, this is an outstanding beer.

Enjoyed this 11.2oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pour a very hazy brown hue with a thick, frothy, 2-finger, whitish head that slowly dissipates in to a wispy lace.

S: Scents of caramel and dark fruits. Belgian yeast aroma in the background.

T: More fruity than expected – mostly dark fruits with a nice alcoholic twang.

M: Medium body and high carbonation.

O: Another excellent brew – all three I tried, 6, 8,10 were exceptionally. Really enjoyed drinking these brews.

Poured from a 33cl bottle into a goblet, bottle date of 080915. This pours a hazy tea color with a massive fizzy head which dissipates faster than I can type this sentence. The smells are wonderful, very fruity, lots of dark fruit, a little belgian yeast esters, some brown sugar and alcohol. The feel is medium, high carbonation. The taste is wonderful, a little fruity, some peach, strawberries, apricot, lots of dark fruit and some brown sugar, very nice.

Poured into riesling-esque glass at work. Pours a hazlenut brown with a quarter-inch of beaded white foam head that recedes.

Nose is spritzy with lots of apricot, raisin, and prune. I detect a hint of candied cherry as well.

Beer has an unexpected citrus that you wouldn't expect. Dark fruits, golden raisins and some orange peel on the palate. The taste intensity does not equal the smell, but there is a significant amount of bread and yeast.

Lots of nuances with a strong, slightly boozy, bready finish.

Quality beer that could present problems because if it's session quality

A: Pours a hazy deep copper with little to no froth dome.

S: Plum and figs are the most prominent characteristic of this beer with a hint of booze and sugar.

T: Brilliantly smooth beer that incorporates a delicious dry plum flavor with light simple but intriguing hop bitterness.

M: Smooth and relaxing flavor on the tongue followed by a gentle touch of carbonation.

O: A great beer just the like 8 & 10. Highly recommended for anyone who hasn't enjoyed a great Trappist beer.

Pours a dark brown amber with a big, two finger off-white, light coffee colored head. Aroma of dark fruits mostly, also grapes, caramel and hints of clove and spice. Really smooth caramel malt to start, one of the better highlights of this flavor in a beer that I've had. Not huge caramel flavor per se, but taste, amount of sweetness and mouthfeel combo is perfect. Moves to dark fruit notes before a lighter finish of white grapes and a pinch of spice. Not the biggest or best flavor profile, but very cohesive and excellently crafted.
