Draft at Max’s 72 Hours of Belgium. Great toffee and caramel aroma with a bot of dark cherries in the mix. Medicinal flavors. Medium sweet and good body. Just not my cup of tea.

Pours attractive deep prune brown with a frothy tan head. Nose and flavor are caramel, toffee and dried fruit. A bit thin in the body.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Tap at Trappist. Pours with a brownish color and a nice head. Aromas of caramel and toffee. Nice flavors of toffee and some dark fruit. The body could be a bit more robust though.Does not quite reach up to Westy or St Bernardus ABt 12.

Travlr (14454) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Dark maroon with medium tan head. Caramel aroma with big sweet smooth taste and decent malt. A bit sweet for my taste, but still a decent beer.

beerheart (237) - Erie, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle at Brasserie Beck in Washington, DC. Nice caramel brown pour with a slightly red tint. Tan head. Sweet dark fruit aroma with caramel malts. Flavor of brown sugar, molasses, Belgian candy sugar, cherries. Nice, but there are so many better tripels out there.

DruncanVeasey (7379) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Swigs of Octo’s, Cambrinus. Big yeasty snout dragging in dusty cocoa, In De Vrede, nuts, molasses. Sharp, sweet and toasted with nuts, sesame, praline. Poor man’s Westy. No hint of the underlying alcoholic power. Impressive, one to seek out again...

SHIG (3787) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - NOV 19, 2008
Bottle: Poured a dark brown with a red tint, head is beige. Aroma is sweet dark fruits and caramel malts. Taste is filled with fruit yet has a suttle sugary malt. This balances it off a bit and provides a very tasty beer.

nimbleprop (5416) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Served on tap in a goblet at Brasserie Beck in Washington D.C. Listed on the menu as a double-triple, listed here at a Quad. What is it really? Translucent, dark brown with a creamy slightly tan head. Smells like a quad. tons of sugar and malts, Belgian dark candy, Belgian yeasts, dark fruits. Flavor was similar, dark sugar, molasses, chewy malts, toffee, raisins, bananas, Belgian yeast. A little more than medium bodied, slightly chalky and sweet. If it called itself a quad it might be a little less confusing.
