It poured a tan color with a small tan head. The aroma was of prunes, strawberries, smoke, apples and some honey. The taste was of roasted barley, smoke, alcohol, dark fruits, raisins and candied sugar. Very nice.

I bought this as part of a gift pack that included Benno and the glass. Bottled in February 2014. It pours a hazy, no cloudy rusty brown with a huge head of foam that is great with the lacing. The smell has quite a bit of bitterness to it yet there’s a honey sweetness going on as well. Perhaps some molasses but more interestingly, I can smell some funky notes. The honey is the first thing I notice in the taste; quite sweet on my palate. The bitterness I noted in the smell is very citrus like in the taste and the the curious funk smell...I get that too. A very complicated beer here, I reckon. Full bodied, medium carbonation. This is most definitely a "weird" brew and I reckon a very polarizing one. Put me in the camp that likes it.

Bottle@post office vaults, birmingham. Slightly murky brown beer with small head. Aroma of treacle, toffee and caramel. Taste is raisins, plums, dark malts and some greeness to it. Palate is medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Very good.

Aroma of red and purple fruits, honey, and yeast. Acid forward flavor involving the aforementioned elements in the aroma. Booze well hidden. Good trappist beer.

On bottle at Post Office Vaults Brum with Sarky and Rich. Very dark brown colour lasting beige head. Thick malty aroma. Very quad like esters. Fine. Some plum raisin. Good heat on finish. Some chocolate. Ok

33 cl. thanks to Gem. Pours opaque ebony with a lasting disc of foam. Nose is smoked meat, blackberry, honey, apple, dates and blackstrap molasses. Tastes of tart berry, semi-sweet chocolate, raisin, biscuit, espresso with cream, soy, a touch of smoky hickory, apple, vanilla, charred wood, red wine and more. Medium-heavy body is smooth with a medium carbonation and shows just a nice touch of the abv. Wow a smoked Trappist tripel/quad/stout! This is definitely a style buster and also a very nice dessert beer.

It feels light in the mouth but still it is tasteful. Alcohol is felt not overpowering the rest. It has a hint of quadruple despite being a triple. Notes of smoked Austrian sausages.

Très belle odeur. On goûte l’alcool mais cela n’est pas dérangeant. Bière douce et onctueuse. L’arriere goût est un peu faible. On peut détecter un goût particulier au bière quadruple. Elle a sa place parmis les bières trappistes.
