3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The color of this beer is an opaque brown with a medium white head that fades fairly quickly to a ring, and the aroma blends Belgian yeast, caramel malts, and booze. The taste is mildly sour and slightly sweet, and the palate combines a lively carbonation, a medium body, light texture, a finish that is mostly abrupt but is malty while it sticks around.

Light amber golden with massive creamy white head. Sweet dry fruity smell along with roasted malts some alcohol. Plums/raisins at first and then comes along the warmth of the alcohol. And then a fabulous bitter sweet aftertaste. Medium to full with nice fizzies. This is one beautiful quadrupel trappist. Not because of its complexity but more because of the amazing balance it has. Really smooth and extremely drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark amber hazy body that also has large single particles floating around. The large head has a light tan colour and leaves some lacing on the glass. Nose has caramel, raisins, dark sugar and some floral accents. Taste is sweet with caramel, raisin and prune notes. The finish is long and dry. Carbonation is lively with large bubbles and the palate otherwise is quite rich without being too cloying. Very nice and easy to drink.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2013 In fles. Mooie amber kleur met een mooie kleur schuimkraag die snel verdwijnt. Smaak impressie: volle smaak. Lekker bittertje en ietwat zoet. Kortom een goddelijk biertje oftewel drink hem!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bought a bottle at the supermarket. The beer has a dark amber color and a nice cream colored head, CO2 level is excellent. Fruity aromas of banana and tropical fruits, with lovely notes of almond and vanilla. A beautiful combination of soft sweetness of raisins and subtle burnt of the malt. It also has the fruity notes of banana and apricots. The warm intense flavor is full and well balanced. The finish is lightly burned and pleasantly bitter with a sweet aftertaste. A really nice quadrupel, one of best beers in Holland.

Good strong trappist. Big bold flavor and not overly boozy considering the 10%. Has everything you expect from the style but not much more. compared to e.g. a rochefort 10 it lacks caracter.

Bottle. Semi-foggy, brown. Big light brown head vaporates quickly. Aroma has ripe fruit and wood.
Taste has orange, nut, malt and apricot. Very rounded with a bit bitter aftertaste. Alcohol is pretty well hidden, coming through just a bit after the middle.
