4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep auburn with good foamy head. Smells of bready malt, yeast and booze. Is a sticky beer, probably from the use of Belgian candied sugars. Exquisite ale with properties similar to port; a good after-dinner quaff. Tastes of prune, black cherry, tart, sticky sweetness, boozy yeast and an obvious inclusion of big aforementioned bready malt. A well balanced beer. I liked the original version better than the oak aged Quad that La Trappe offers for almost 2x the price! Always seem to come back to this one. One of my favorites.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from a Maksimarket near Rakvere in Sept 2014. BB 02/2017. It is a hazy, dark amber with a red hue; the big, frothy and bubbling head retains and laces well. It looks beautiful! The aroma... a fantastic alcoholic warmth coming through... it’s doughy, biscuity, white wine acidic, spicy, caramelly, clovey... Complex and intoxicating! Taste is quite sweet and caramelly - at first there’s some berry or fruit tartness, then gets more malty (dried apples, clove, vanilla), finishing quite boozy, grainy and dry. Medium to full body, active carbonation, sticky palate. Overall: a very enjoyable, crisp, spicy and boozy Quad.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mainstream supermarket beer.
Not that rich and finely balanced taste that you’re expecting from beers like these.
U can get better quadruple’s for the same price in the Belgian supermarkets.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, tasted 100ml during Beer 2014 festival tasting. Served very lightly chilled, too warm for my liking, and this probably hart my rating of it.
Pours rich reddish brown with grayish head. Aroma of very sweet malts and sweet caramel, very complex. Very lightly carbonated with a very full thick body. Taste is sweet, with almost no bitterness and not a trace of sourness. Tastes very alcoholic and heavy, sweet liqueur, almost cloying (those flavors were probably enhanced by the warm serving temp). More flavors of choclate, dried fruits, dark malts. After taste is sticky sweet. This is a good beer, but was just too sweet, alcoholic and heavy - I will taste it again in better conditions.

Belle couleur ambrée, légèrement trouble.

D’abord le malt, biscuit, caramel puis une légère note amère de houblon résineux.
Peu complexe mais équilibrée et efficace.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Monoprix, Nice. Hazy copper-amber colour, no head. Easy drinking for a 10% ale, but the strength hits you after a while, however it’s fine Trappist style which is slightly dry whilst still packing in plenty of flavour certainly masks this.
