Hertog Janís finest. Full flavour, nice "thick" taste Not the best quadrupel, but always a delight to drink.

50cl stone bottle with cork served in a Trappist glass. Pours a dark garnet colour with no head and carbonation being equally non-existent. There is little aroma other than rich fruits and cake notes. The mouthfeel is excellent (quite meaty) and the taste is exceptionally rich with very sweet notes. Very little hoppiness almost all malt, dried fruits and bread. The most cakelike beer I have tried in fact a perfect partner to a rich fruit cake.

Dirty dark brown color, almost black. Pours with a 1 inch head that settles to little more than a film before it can be enjoyed. Draws down clean and clear. Smells like bitter barley malt syrup and tastes the same with a smooth body and little to no bite or hint of alcohol. Some fruit peel, like apple on the finish. So, iíll give you that itís smooth but not that its good. Try an American barley wine if you want something less sweet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bought a bottle at the supermarket. The beer is dark brown and has a cream colored head, CO2 level is good. In the aroma tones of roasted grains, coffee, mokka and bananas. The taste is soft sweet but not bothersome. The alcohol provides the bite and mocha / coffee give fullness. The finish gives a slightly bitter aftertaste with a nice full mouthfeel. A really nice quadrupel, but La Trappe is just a little better.
