750 ml bottle labeled Koningshoeven: Pours a nice copper color with a cirrus-like tan head. Huge belgian yeast aroma with a bit of fruity sweetness and some banana notes. Vinous taste, almost doughy with a raisin backdrop. Somewhat dry mouth feel, perfectly carbonated. Good stuff

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, lots of sweet dark fruits, Prune, raisin and cranberry. A bit of bread and citrus. Sweet, flavor, alcohol is very noticible, a bit of sourness, warming, yeast is not very dominate as in some quads. Plenty of rich dark fruit but not as much rich dark roast as others. Not a bad brew similar to drinking prune juice with some vodka in it. Quite a bit better than the dubble.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very detectable high alcohol presence. First tastes are cognac-like, sweet and strong. Mellows out a little after the first few sips. Pruny, pungent fruit tastes. A nice slow sipper, i would’ve assumed the alcohol percentage a tad higher than 10% by the taste.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber-red colour. Aroma has toasted, biscuity grains and sweet, sugary fruit. Flavour has a lot of candy sweetness and fruit that becomes a little bitter on the aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2008 22 oz bottle corked and caged the cork was a pain to get out
Poured into my Ommegang chalice produced a fingers worth of white lace that goes to a lace on top of a light tea colored body with some suspended partials of yeast
Aromas of wine comes from the bottle a nice fruity smell as well but you can smell the alcohol as well
The taste is the same as the aroma sweet fruit along with a light spice bitter
Not as full as I like my quads more of a medium mouthfeel with a alcohol warmth in the end
Its an alright Quadrupel not one of the best but drinkable

Soft carbonation, impressive creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has a little cellar-notes, raisins, caramel, sweetness, winegums, pear, raspberries, toffee, vinious, plums and marzipan. World class!

Bottle @ Café Jos, Nijmegen. Pours a dark redish amber with a thin fizzy head the settles as a few bubbles along the edges of the glass. Aroma is not as powerful as expected, but sweet and with a good dose of dried fruits. Nice full and slightly oily mouthfeel. Flavour is equally sweet, prunes, raisins, fruit, berries and very complex.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2010 Sticky, smooth and cakey. Leaning more towards the English Barley Wine camp than the monasteries of Belgium. Clear chestnut capped with fine, tenacious froth. Enticing, candy-dipped snout rubbed in treacle and christmassy dark fruits. Really smells the business. Banana cake, golden syrup, figs and brandy richness balanced by a warming, medicinal hint in the finish. And finish you it will if you’re not careful. Big, hypnotic Dutch monk wielding a velvet-cushioned sledgehammer. Watch out.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Found this in Florida so I had to give it a shot. Pours out a light brown/amber color with a fluffy slightly off white head. Aroma of raisin, banana, and some yeast. Nice full mouthfeel. Flavor is dark fruit, raisin, plum and yeast. Very smooth for a beer of this ABV. Well done
