4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice...always wanted to try this Trappist. Opened up while cold and got pure bubblegum from the tulip. after letting it warm a bit the flavors got so complex as to not even be able to pinpoint. Almonds, banana, rock candy, sweet bread. Alcohol was not overwhelming. Good malt. Still trying to figure out that initial taste. Not a lot of funk. Would for sure drink again but its 50 cents more than StBerardus Abt12 which rules the roost IMHO. Buy and enjoy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Kolor miedziany, klarowne. Piana obfita, szybko opada, ale pozostawia gruba obraczke i niezle oblepia szklo. W aromacie na pierwszym planie wanilia i przyprawy, dalej syrop kandyzowany, karmel, czekolada, estry owocowe. W odczuciu polwytrawne, jest lekka owocowo-karmelowa slodycz, dosc wysoko wysycone. W smaku mamy powtorke z aromatu, lekko karmelowe, sporo owocowych estrow i syropu kandyzowanego, niestety takze lekko metaliczne, za to alkohol dobrze ukryty, zwodniczo lekkie i pijalne. Goryczka niska, ziolowa.

Draught at Yard House (Dedham, Mass). Goblet
I try not to rate beer at the bar/pub, so this is from memory from about an hour ago. My memory is crap, but I remember this being the best Belgian beer from the Yard House’s Belgian 6 sampler. I ordered a goblet of this after the sampler plate. The Quad was amazing. Aroma was somewhat sweet. Appearance was clear, amber, with white/tan head. Taste had an exceptional balance between sweet malts/sugar and bitter hops. Really enjoyed the hops on this, the bitterness was perfectly balanced with the malts/sugar. Nice and dry finish. Overall, wow, this was really, really good. Probably the best Quad that I’ve had in a while. No fruitiness like Ommegang Three Philosophers, just a straight up Quad.

The first impression when you pour it into the glass is a sweet dark fruit and chocolate smell, very nice. The taste is really good, soft and little fruity, even though it is maybe quite carbonated. In fact, it tastes better a few minutes after pouring it into the glass. Ann¡yway it is a very good beer which deserves to be tasted.

Aroma is dark fruits, belgian sugar candy, biscuit, vanilla, raisins and rich malts. Taste is a great collection of fruits like plum, raisin, dark cherry and apple. Very nice and chewy mouthfeel. Transitions into a very pale but well placed bitterness. Appearance is a medium dark cloudy amber with a medium pearl head that retains well.

Quadrupel facile da bersi, di colore ambrato torbido. Al naso salgono aromi floreali e frutta candita. Al palato appare subito dolce quasi a ricordarmi una Kwak....ma di un dolce che a fine bottiglia non cambia. dove sono i lieviti? in generale buona bevuta.
