2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
high ratings but for myself,disappointing.pours extremely dark.looks more like a brune.aroma of smoke?reminds me at first of a porter.not a quad.i can pick up the must of the yeast and the sweetness of the malt.the smoke seems to drown out everything else.flavour is sweet.dark fruit, burnt sugars,spice and orange zest.body is thin for this style.slick,oily mouthfeel and a sweet medicinal finish.quads are my style.this is disappointing from start to finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
big yeasty note, paste like note, which iíve experienced in some other yeasty beers. deep dark brown color, almost opaque, reasonable rocky head. a little roasty in the flavor, a touch of a sour tang. medium body. a slight sour note that goes from finish to aftertaste. the level of roast malt character was a bit of a surprise.

Bottle. Pours clear with a partly lasting creamy beige head. Aroma is dark overripe fruit, raisin, rubber, smoke, sugar, caramel, orange, clove, spice, phenols and herbs. Taste is moderate sweet, light+ bitter and light acidic. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Finishes sweet and acidic. I love Trine Gregorius.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours very dark reddish brown with pillowy tan head. Chocolate, caramel, tangerine, floral, dough, soy sauce. High sweetness and low bitterness. Full, sticky body with a bit of lively crispness. A nice quad, but a bit too sweet.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Red-brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma is full of dark fruit. The flavor has a lot of toffee and caramel notes, as well as some dark fruit and brown sugar. Very nice overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Glad I got to try this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at The Huppel, Den Haag. Poured a deep crude oil like colour with a broken off-white head and an oily consistency. The aroma is rich red berry fruit and alcohol. The flavour is strong bitter with loads of alcohol inspired liqourice, roasted malt, citrus fruit and yeast. A super rich, super yeasty Trappist beer. One of the best.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from vinmonopolet.no enjoyed at home
Dark brown, tanned head. Smells of dark fruits, raisins, yeast esters, dark malts and caramel. Moderate sweet, nuts, raisins, burnt caramel, dark malts. Medium bitter finish. A quite interesting beer this. A new monastary claiming the Trappist name. Itís quite good, not sure if i would call it a Quad though. Hope to try this one again

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours deep mahogany with medium off-white head. Aroma has raisins, dark caramel, marshmallow, very slight mustiness, Subtle prickliness of carbonation on the palate - texture on the lighter side for a strong ale. Flavor is simple but very good - rich bock-like caramelized sugars, very light acidity on the finish along with mild alcohol tang and a sweetness and light hop touch lingering after each taste.
