The aroma is malt forward - mince meat, raisins, and spice. A cloudy brown pour with thin tan head which has good retention and modest lacing. The taste is moderately sweet. Pallet of roasted malts, raisins, and candi sugar with hints of coco and biscuit. The finish reveals a slight hop bitterness. Medium body and medium carbonation. Lightly coats the tongue. Overall, while sweet, this is a nicely balanced brew which is meant to be relished one sip at a time.

Dark beer with a light amber foamy head, almost no saturation. Smells malty, hoppy, spicy, liquorish and a little caramel. Full bodied taste, little bitterness. Long and nice aftertaste. Really good Christmas beer, could drink a few of these during cold winter days :)

Well, not bad at all, but the body and the taste are a bit too watery for a quadrupel ale in my opinion. just my opinion!

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Russet brown with a one-finger beige head. Raisin and brown sugar dominates the reticent aroma, which also gives hints of cocoa, spice, and citrus zest. The flavor’s not so shy, with a deft balance between raisin-and-fig sweetness and herbal bittering hops and orange zest. The result is a big beer that drinks small, a somewhat brooding beer that ends up bright and fresh. Very well done.

Bottle. Deep brown taste. Boozy. Sippable. A little tart. Pretty good. More like a Belgian strong ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fra flaske på Tap1 mai-13: jul på italiensk kan trygt anbefales. Inspirert av belgiske klosterøl iflg. importøren. En elegant hyllest til de belgiske klosterbryggerne!
