Dark brown color. Smell of soy sauce and yeasty fruity notes. Flavor is ripe and complete. Ripe summer fruit. Taste like quadrupel.

Dark brown with medium light brown head. Soft, stouty, bit wanilla taste with mild bitterness surrounded by sweetness, carbonation sourness.

Cluniac (59) - - JAN 21, 2015
Aroma is a bit hoppy, malty and floral notes. Appearance is jet black with a thin tan head and tight carbonation. Taste is a bit flat for me, but is mostly malt and dark fruit. Palate is medium creamy, with a bit bitter and dry aftertaste. A bit spicy and boozy warm, although not bad considering its 12%. Overall decent ale, but flavors not as bold as the best in class.

thirstyrabbit (1188) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 19, 2015
Bottle. Chestnut brown body, tall diminsihing head. Aroma has sweet caramel, some nuts and not much else. Sweet caramelly taste with nuts, figs and ceylon tea. Plenty of booze in the finish. Sweet and caramelly booze fest without anything exciting, resembles another overrated classic La Trappe Quadrupel. Not my kind of beer. Ironic name.

Renobob (1001) - BesanÁon, FRANCE - JAN 17, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Nez plutot neutre, palais sur le caramel, les épices et l'alcool. Biere assez forte, bien corpulente.

JefVerstraete (1659) - Ghent, BELGIUM - JAN 16, 2015
Dark brown/black with beige foam. Medium carbonation. Light roasted malts and light notes of coffee. Also caramel and spices. Rather alcoholic. Good beer.

MrW (439) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2015
33 cl bottle. Sweet aroma, malts, raisins, plums. Dark brown, nice foamy tan head, lasting, lacing. Warm taste (probably the alcohol), dark fruits, mild coffee, caramel. Full body, every sip is different due to the alcohol that getís more prominent.

Kauge (410) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle from Wine of Galilee in Tallinn. Opaque brown with beautiful bright mahogany. Head is massive but drops fast to leave a thin layer leaving some lacing, soon to disappear; colour is light cream. On the nose thereís a lot of caramel and grains, some dark fruits... liqueur crawls forward more and more as it warms. Taste is very sweet... dark fruits soaked in liqueur, caramel, woody, spicy. Quite a lot of dry bitterness in the finish. Heavy on the tongue, with a thick and syrupy palate and active carbonation. Pretty good drinkability despite the 12% ABV - in fact, if I didnít know any better Iíd have guessed it to be between 8-10%. Overall - too caramelly sweet for my liking. Itís not among my favourite Belgian Strong Dark Ales.

Shedding in the Trappist glass foams presented average, beige and soft and durable, leaving thin layer perennial. The body is an opaque dark brown with red and very beautiful reflections. The roasting aroma is wonderful, delicate, and alcohol does not appear in the aroma, but there are noble hops, floral accents, fruity, citrus and dry. Felt no toasted or roasted in armoma which surprised me. I noticed this a little Belgian yeast. In my humble opinion this beer complete all requirements of a good Quadrupel abbey style. Surely a striking feature is the aroma that is not very strong in intensity, but it turns out complex, delicate and accompanying tasting until the last sip. † Taste takes the same aroma of course with generous doses of coffee, a beautiful Belgian yeast and floral hops. Alcohol shows its claws warming slightly every sip that clashes a bit the set despite its 12% content. Its carbonation is high, which was soon confirmed in the first sip. The bitterness appears well and refreshes the set, helping a lot the drinkability of this beer, poi the alcohol content is high. A powerful end. In its aftertaste feel a bitter light, one torrefado in the background a taste of dried ameixar. Well inserted. One of the greatest merits of this Quadrupel Trappist style is at its high alcoholic content not to be heavy drinking not being too sweet and not at all cloying not. A work of art brewing.
