12oz bottle to chalice. More brown than red pour with a luxurious head that forms some nice colonies on top after resting a bit. Aroma of Belgian yeast and a little candy sugar. Nice malty flavor with a spicy, peppery, and ultimately dry finish.

Pour is a cloudy brown amber, small off white head. Aroma has a bit of banana and dark fruit notes upfront, slowly mellows out to some caramel malt, yeast and dark fruit as it warms up. Taste is similar to aroma with some dark fruit and yeast that become more prevalent as it warms up, some herbal hops as well. A full body with good carbonation on the palate. Finish is sweet caramel malt, yeast, dark fruit plums and figs, brown sugar and mild bitter herbal hops for balance with a bit of sweet brown sugar and alcohol on the end. Finish is long and slightly dry. A noteworthy full flavored brew, very nice.

Murky brown foamy head. Raisins, prunes in the taste of the main body. Thick feel. Spicy end that tingles the lips. Alcohol whafts up the nose. A little card boardy. Good but not great.

Poured a hazy mahogany from the bottle. Bubbly coffee cream head. Fizzy first bite. Sweet, tart, syrupy goodness. Head sticks around for the first few mouthfuls. Great quad. Heavy enough to have your attention, and bubbly citrus to keep you around.

Pours a murky dark amber with a thick mocha head. There’s a floral, caramel, and dark fruit aroma. Sweet and mildly bitter taste that was on the boozy side. Flavor’s of raisins, caramel, fruits, herbal and earthy notes. Medium body that was lively carbonated with a dry boozy finish.

Very nice quad. 12 oz bottle, sold in 4 packs; not a bad deal at all. Cloudy light brown with huge pillowy head. Aroma is raisin, fig. Quite sweet on the palate, but not sickly, malt and candi sugar, Belgian yeasts, a little boozy kick. A treat for sure. I’m splitting the bottle as an aperitif but would be ideal sipped with food. (Thanksgiving is not a bad thought.) Not quite as complex as some of the Trappist versions IMHO.
