What, no one put in Achel Bruin 8% yet!? The latest trappist beer from the 6th and newest trappist brewery. This is some good stuff. It comes in the same bottle as the regular Achel 8% Triple, the only difference is (of course) the liquid in the bottle and the colour of the bottle cap. This is one of the penultimate Belgian Brown Ales/Beers. This ale pours a dark brown (bruin) colour with a nice sized head sitting atop of the foam. This smells like belgian candy sugar, yeasts, fruits, and ester alcohols. This has a full mouthfeel and a wonderful drinkability as well. One of the best trappist beers out there today, and apparantly one that does not have a lot of representation here on BA!
cheers!,

PS: I don't know if these Achel beers are imported to the US of A yet, but they can be had for a reasonable price from Belgianshop.com!
