Pours a dark mahogany with a tan head; tobacco and espresso on the nose; chalky mouth feel to the palate; dry. Tastes like a stout vice a quad. Not my favorite.

From bottle in La Trappe glass, very nice appearance, with a very dark/black colour and humble white head. Smells like honey and apple syrup. Sometimes creamy tasting bittersweet with honey and dark bitter chocolate that confuces me sometimes. Very surprising new trappist that adds a unique item.

AgentAle (627) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 25, 2014
Aroma is rich sweet malts, honey, caramel, plum, raisins and brown sugar. Taste is sweet maltiness with some slight roastiness. Dark fruits, apple and Belgian sugars are here alongside some yeastiness.Finishes with some warm alcohol mouth feel. The appearance is an amber/brown with a beige /brown head that retains fairly poorly. Slight fruity sediment present.

Lele (104) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 23, 2014
Birra molto particolare. Anzitutto, non credo proprio che sia una Quadrupel (come dice Ratebeer), quanto piuttosto una Belgia Strong dark Ale. Il miele presente tra gli ingredienti non l’ho percepito. Accanto al fruttato, si avvertono chiare note di cacao amaro e tostato. Tutto questo la rende una birra complessa e interessante.

Ero veramente curioso di assaggiare questo birrificio trappista fuori dai confini belgici. Tutto sommato non mi è disgarbata, ma non mi ha fatto certo impazzire...

pretty interesting take on a belgian ale. upfront the nose and taste are sherry-like, grape-y, and smoky. there’s some tartness to this beer which could be from the yeast consuming the highly fermentable honey. yeast character is kind of like that of rochefort but a little more tart. pretty much like a rochefort 8 but dryer, more tart and less caramel, and with strong wine-like characteristics. pretty interesting.

Almost reminds of of a nice bitter porter with some fruity notes to balance out the roastyness. Not bad, quite interesting, nog my favorite.
