This beer was fantastic. I think I’ve had it before but this was great. Tasted like grapes, sweet, but not too sweet. Dark and very aromatic. Splendid.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 330ml. Pours with huge white head, dark amber/brown color. Aroma is absolutely fantastic. Lot of dark fruits, raisins, plums, candied sugar, caramel, bread, also spicy belgian notes. Very complex. It’s sweet, with some nice notes of fruits, caramel, light bitterness. Excellent mouthfeel, highly carbonated. For sure, one of the best belgian beers, I like it even more than Rochefort 10.

Too much spicy, malted bread for my liking. Will have to try again once I realign my spirit.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A deep velvety brown color beer with an extremely aggressive dense tan foamy head that fades to a lingering veil that explodes with any sudden movement. Good lacing.
Fine malt aroma with Beligum yeast faint aspects of cloves and fruit.
Taste is rich and complex malts. I taste also cloves candied sugar and sweet fruitiness of plums or raisins. Oh yeah, and a big alcohol bite.
It feels in the mouth to be a thin to medium bodied beer with a dry finish and alcohol warming.
Pleasing to look at and pleasing to drink.

20/VI/14 - 33cl bottle @ ’t Einde (Gent) - BB: 25/VI/18 (2014-647) Thanks to Thomas and Annelies for the celebration beer in honour of their child-to-be! :-)
Clear dark purple brown beer, big irregular light beige head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: malty, caramel, liquorish, aniseed, bit spicy. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: quite some liquorice, caramel, aniseed, little burned, sourish. Aftertaste: aniseed, little bitter, liquorish, dried fruits, mocha, bit of chocolate. Honestly, this is not how I remember this beer. I thought it was way less spicy. Very odd...

Copper brown pour, with thick, long lasting head. Lively carbonation from bottle conditioning . Sweet toasty oats on the aroma, with Belgian yeast coming through as it warms. The flavour is full of hazelnuts , almonds, and a balanced hop finish. Totally luxurious beer.

330cl bottled. I have only had Westvleteren12 for once so far. As another quadrupel, this beer is much easier to get and not bad though.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Verfrissend luchtig aroma, mooie schuimkraag die langzaam wegtrekt. Ontwikkeld zich langzaam maar mooi in de mond en fel in de afdronk. Krachtig bruisend. Complexe smaak van donker fruit met hinten van chocolade.
