Boutip (5198) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle: Poured a clear deep brown color ale with a generous head with OK retention and light lacing notes. Aroma of caramelized malt with light dry fruits with quite a bit of residual sugar notes. Taste is also a mix between caramelized malt with some dry fruits notes with quite a bit of residual sugar. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad bit lacks cohesion and balance as well as those candy ester that the other Trappist have.

ChristianHR (232) - DENMARK - JUL 13, 2015
Smells of nuts, dark fruit, caramel and alcohol. Pours rather hazy with a very dark amber color. The taste is very strong of burnt sugar, caramel, dates and liquorice. Not the best Trappist but fits the trademark.

cards04 (2370) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 13, 2015
A fantastic quad. Pours a rich dark brown. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, burnt caramel. Very similar flavour. With some vinous qualities. Very nice.

smroush (135) - Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Aroma is very malty, with some nice plum aromas and also some molasses/toffee. The hops are pretty subdued and very much dominated by the malt, though there is an underlying backbone of bitterness. The head is small and off-white. The beer is a quite dark brown with a hazy, almost murky appearance. The beer is fairly full bodied, with a slightly creamy and alcoholic texture. The carbonation is just a bit on the lively side. The finish is long, moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Overall a good example of a Belgian quadrupel - very malty, sweet but in a way that works well, nice flavors of molasses, toffee and plum.

SWZA (5) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2015 does not count
This beer has potential but right now it lacks execution. Everything is great until the finish and/or aftertaste. Smells like pineapple, initial maltiness, faint honey, then weird bitter/acrid aftertaste once it’s swallowed. The finish is no good on this beer. I like the honey dimension, however.

PapaVillum (677) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2015
0,33 l, flaske, 9,7 % ABV, BB: 30.01.16, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 9. juli 2015. Mørkebrun ufiltreret østrigsk Abt/Quadrupel med 2-3 cm moccafarvet tætskummende krone, som svinder til 1/2 cm efter en halv snes minutter. Aromaen er indledningsvis præget af chokolade og frugt. Rosin, blomme, sveske. Senere udvikler aromaen sig mere vinøs med gæret frugt, kirsebær, og gærbakterier af læder. Smagsbilledet indledes med en dyb fyldig bittersød smag og ender i et mere bittert skær. Solid sødme, middel bitterhed, stor kompleksitet. Rund og fyldig krop med veltilpasset karbonering på et medium niveau eller et nyk under. Klæbrig konsistens og en bitter samt kun mild sød afslutning. På nogle punkter minder dette bryg en del om Abt 12 fra St Bernadus, og her ligger både charmen og fascinationen, men også problemet: at den ikke helt er sin egen.

Pours a murky brown with a long-lasting tan foam head. Aroma is sweet brown sugar, plum, caramel, and some booze. Flavor is dark fruits, caramel, and burnt toffee. Excellent.

Lacho (29) - USA - JUL 4, 2015
Not what I expected, tastes of caramel, roasty, doughy, but a little fizzy. Very intense licorice, powerful prune aftertaste. I would place it as one of the lower ranked Trappists.

A wonderful dark Trappist! Aroma of burnt toffee, dark caramel, and raisins. More of the same in the taste. Nice, burnt, but balanced aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
