3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Very nice rich sweet caramelly malts, sweet red berries. Almost watery palate, light and amazingly drinkable for a 10% beer. Iím not getting the alcohol, but Iím on a pro La Trappe wave at the moment, and I donít get that. Alcohol is warming, but not hot. Mellow wine aspects nice, and almost certainly contribute to the covering of the alcohol. Anna thinks itís a bit boozy. Smooth palate, nice to sip, perhaps just a bit too winey. Good one from La Trappe.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy brown with a thin, white, ring of a head. Deep amazing smell of rich caramel roasted nutty malt, with figs, but and sweet fruit. Medium oily body. Tastes of alcohol with sweet malt, figs, nuts, raisins, and a nutty finish. Delicious and seriously complex in taste and smell. Amazing.

Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate dark fruit, wood and dark sugar aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12.7oz bottle, on closeout at Party Source. Poured into a Chimay Trappist glass. Cork was a bitch to get loose. Hazy red brown color, lots of fine yeast particles in the body. Beautiful color, but just a thin ring of khaki head, just a couple loose dots of lace. Awesome dark fruity, vinous, oak aromas. Vanilla, fruitcake. Very tasty. Moderate sweet taste, good bitterness. Nice light alcohol warmth. Light spice. Very little carbonation, but not completely flat. Just enough carbonation, still enjoyable. Actually very smooth and drinkable for a belgian quad, the little carbonation may help with that (theyíre usually too strongly carbonated for me). Bigger body. Lightly slick, but not sticky. Good light bit of dryness in the finish. Great stuff. Very enjoyable. One of the most drinkable quads ever, but a little more carbonation would have worked to bring out the fantastic flavor more... Mightíve been closer to a 4.1
