Bottle. Pours cloudy dark brown color with white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is plums, yeast, floral, licorice, wood. Flavor is liforice, fruits, plums, cherries yeast, malt, slightly hoppy, hint of alcohol. Surprisingly light considering the alcohol content. Quite carbonated, but by tiny pleasant bubbles.

Visited shop near abbey today...
Rich taste with balanced hoppy/malt finish.
Is it a best beer in a world? Could be, but....

I visited the place and maybe the beer is a little bit overvaluated. it is a very special beer but there are other beers in Belgium with similar or better qualities. Some towns are producing amaizing products. beermap.com

Pours a nice brown with an off-white head. Smells of nice and sweet dark fruit. Taste is quite similar with nice breadiness. Honesty one of the best quads I've ever had

Best before 04.06.17 (Brewed 2014). Poured a very cloudy brown and had a very typical Abt/Quad smell and taste. A lot smoother than Rochefort 10/St Bernadus 12 and overall a great beer. My father who dislikes other quads loved it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark brown with a shedload of sediment. One of the most unclear beers I’ve poured, and not in a good way. Small head. Alcoholic aroma, malt and port. Flavour is port, raisins, coffee, caramel and cinnamon. Smooth but the alcohol burns a bit. Excellent beer let down by the unclean look.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
A dark cloudy brown coloured beer with a thick off white head. A surprisingly light aroma, but by no means lacking, yeasty bread dough and Marmite, ripened dark fruits, Port-like raisiny and vinous. Full mouthfeel. An assault the tastebuds, from all directions! Sour and yeasty. Dry, roasted malt, some espresso coffee. Sweet ripened fruits, raisins, plums and cherries and Port-like. Did I miss anything! The reputation this beer has is utterly justified. Tasted at "In de Vrede", Westvleteren.
