3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013/04/19 - pours a translucent orange/amber color with a thin off white head. Aroma is yeast, plums, banana and raisins. Taste is similar to nose with sweet, dark fruits up front and an oaky, warming, boozy aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thick with sooth carbonation. A disappointing Trappist quad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at bar. Light brown color, white head. Sweet taste with plum, earthy notes, honey, ripe fruits, herbs and cinnamon. Nicely balanced body, the high ABV is very well hidden. Sweet finish with fruits and herbs. Magnificent quadruppel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours orange amber with a beige head. Aroma of traditional belgian beer-candy, ripe plums, concentrated candy (flagermuse), almost synthetic feel to it, weak floral notes, toffee, raisins, banana and dark sugar. Taste has that same belgian beer-candy with a lot of sweet stuff going on. Not that cloying and almost no hint of alcohol. Nice.

Glass bottle dated Oct 17, 2012. Dark brown colour and ample head. Raisin and banana, sweet caramel. Alcohol comes through but not offensively. Very complex and enjoyable, as most quadrupels.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours semi-red brown, but clear. Thick white head. The aroma is sooo much candy! Banana, dried fruits, flowers and caramel.. A little perfumed though. The balance is not overwhelming. The perfume is in the taste as well, but some rum and more caramel comes to my mind. Well hidden alcohol, but probably because of the really intense candy!

Well. Sweet, very sweet, lots of fruit, but the sweetness is not balanced out at all. Hoped for better.
