dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle from Reg. Pours a deep brown, almost burnt caramel color with a khaki head. Aroma is belgian yeast, alcohol soaked pit fruit, spice, clove. Taste is sweet with heavy spice, including sharp anise notes at the back of the throat. Its a bit harsh on the finish. Pretty good, but not there with the other Trappist Abt beers.

adamah (214) - - SEP 4, 2013
Aroma of dark fruit, wood, and licorice. Pours reddish brown with no head and a lot of suspended yeast. The taste is mostly sweet and finishes with sour bitterness. The alcohol is very prevalant on the palate and burns a little going down.

mathieuc (1514) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2013
Pours a red-ish brown with a big fluffy offwhite head that leaves some lacing. Each subsequent pour gets murkier and murkier. Aroma of booze and licorice. Not all that belgian. Taste IS cloyingly sweet with honey at the front and some cloves and licorice at the back. Alcohol is not hidden at all. A light sour twang is also present. Some not so dark fruits. This isn’t exactly what I was expecting from a trappist quad...

Joakgust (962) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle, 33cl - Semi hazy deep ruby red beer with a large cream white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of caramel, toffee, red berries, dried fruit, hazelnuts, marzipan and herbs. Flavor is fruity with notes of caramel, dried fruit, herbs, bread and grapes. Unfortunately a bit unbalanced, but a fantastic aroma explosion.

Cybercat (3504) - Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Special anniversary tapping at Summits. Comes out of the tap a rich, deep sable - not much head, but that must be an artifact of the pour. Aroma fills the nostrils with roast malt, sharp fruity and caramel notes plus a hint of bourbon. Rich flavor stimulates them taste buds with caramel, malt, pear, and subtle chocolate and bourbon tones. Sweetness and sourness rather nicely balance each other. Firm texture is silky-smooth, yet has fizz to spare. I definitely need to get to Belgium someday and enjoy these wonderful beers right at the source!

Blairgus (2729) - California, USA - AUG 28, 2013
28 aug 2013, bottle. Brown and hazy. Nose is toast crust, bready yeast, some grape must, mild alcohol. Med body and moderately fizzy. Blue fruit, big alcohol, carbonation makes it a bit too harsh, bready yeast. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

andrewturba (1085) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
Pours a very dark brown with a moderate tan head. Aroma is dark dried fruits, dark candied sugar, Belgian yeast, clove, and mild alcohol. Flavour is dark dried fruits(definitely some plums), honey like notes, candied sugar, a bitter sweet touch, and a bit boozy(might have drank it a bit young but I’m still enjoying it).

SHIG (3664) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle: Poured a dark chocolate brown with a tan thin head. Aroma is dark fruit and yeast. Taste is a alcohol burning dark fruit with a hint of dark malts.

RexTalionis (2615) - FINLAND - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 08.01.2015. Pours dark brown in color with a small head. Plums,loads of them along with some ripe garden fruits in aroma, bit vinous, quite sweet plum liqour as well is there. Quite nice though. The sweeter quite plum-like notes are quite overwhelming though. Sweetish plums, some vinous, almost port-like vibes in the taste, bit of light sourness as well. This was a nice surprise, I liked this brew a lot. Long-lasting vinous taste. Good one.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle at Tilleys, Newcastle on 27 July 2013. Poured a hazy copper with a thin tan head and visible carbonation. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, grains and some spice. Prunes, raisins and other dried fruits flavours with molasses and yeast. Sweet lingering palate of overripe fruit and bready malts.
