Pour is a super thick, deep mahogany brown. Murky. Finger of beige head, super dense. Ton of black sediment with the pour.

Nose is big and complex. Some sweet dry dark fruits, plum and raisin predominantly. Also some creamy caramel notes. Little bit of birch and sassafras.

Flavor is rich and thick. Lots of creaminess surprisingly. Big dark fruits with plum, dried fig, raisin. Nice malty caramel.

Feel is super full and thick. almost chewy.

I think my palate is not quite developed enough to appreciate this beer. Lots of really complex flavors. I also think it will get better as it warms. But it is mind bogglingly good for the style. Just not sure I'm ready for it yet. Prepare your palate.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Dark chestnut;small head

Aroma: Malty; fruity; fig-like

Taste: Spicy; good malty alcohol flavor; complex; dry notes throughout, but finishes sweet; delicious

Remarks: Drank this in Alkmaar, NL after a beer museum tour (De Boom Museum bar) on an empty stomach; hit me hard, but it was so good.

This is my favorite readily-available Belgian beer.

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: Thin head, maybe half a finger, that quickly disappears. Cloudy, dark brown, some visible carbonation, but mostly obscured by the cloudiness.

S: Rick chocolate, malt, and dark fruit, in that order. A little cream, too. Like Bailey's.

T: Rich, bold, creamy. Chocolate and the cream comes out first, some oakyness next, then malt and dark fruit linger. Flavor never fades. Very rich, but not in a sickly sweet way. Very easy to forget the ABV is 11.3%. I want to make beer syrup out of this and out it on everything. After a few more sips, I think I'm getting a little hint of orange, just slightly at the end. Might be crazy.

M: Smooth, a little silky, but less so than the 8. Lighter on the carbonation, too. Light for a Trappist, but not light overall.

O: This is my favorite beer. Drink it any and every chance you get. Incredible in every aspect.

Poured into a Firestone Walker Teku

A - Poured dark brown/amber and hazy. Liberated 2 fingers of creamy tan head that slowly faded. Floating particles on pour that settled on the bottom after a while.

S- Dark fruits, slight citrus, malty, toast/bready, alcohol but not strong. Many some toffee/caramel or chocolate? Very interesting nose.

T - Just a wonderful mix of flavors, nicely complex. Similar to nose, with raisins, plums, cherry, figs. Slightly sweet on the palate.

M - Good carbonation, smooth and a great boozy warmth. Considering the ABV it drinks nicely. This could easily catch up to me.

O - Stunning example of a strong dark Belgian ale. I had it once before and I was hoping I wouldn't be disappointed this time around, I was anything but. Really a rich and complex beer. One that must be tried.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: creamy head with bubbly appearance around ring of glass, dark brown, opaque, holds slight head nicely

Aroma: sweet malt aroma with deep dark fruit complexities, Belgian yeasty aroma yielding notes of prune, fig, pepper, with sweetness of heavy malt usage coming through nicely

Taste: rich malt heaviness balanced out by yeast fruit flavors, bready malt taste, with spicy phenols exhibited to counterbalance the thickness of malt, can taste the high alcohol content but not enough that you would suspect of being 11.5%

Mouthfeel: silky, tongue coating similar to a stout, slightly cloying but in a good way such that you take small sips and enjoy for long time. Slight prickle on the finish from carbonation and alcohol percentage. Moderately dry finish

Overall Impression: tremendous Trappist ale, further evidence that these beers deserve their own special classification. With strong notes of dark fruits and slight spiciness from hops to balance out heavy dark malt bill, this beer packs a punch that will knock you on your ass on the first sip. The heaviness will leave you satisfied but the complexity will leave you intrigued down to the last sip
