4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a reddish brown with a big tan head and a sweet aroma of cherries, caramel and sugar syrup. The taste is sweet and a bit alcoholic, but surprisingly complex. There’s lots of sweet malts, with notes of toffee, dark chocolate, overripe fruits, brown sugar and some yeast. The finish is a nice lasting mixture of medium-bitter hops, some sticky sweetness and warming alcohol. Very nice!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dark fruit, bread and spices.
Turbid/opaque ruby/dark brown beer with a slight/medium beige/brown head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast and dark fruit; ends slightly dry with bread and spices.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Not super intense, but insanely complex. Nothing else to say really, as with most quads. Could have been darker, that would have been more to my liking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Jun. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle from Mali Ducan, Split. It poured a lightly hazy copper to brown body with medium sized head. Dark fruit, caramel and herbal aroma, rather weak and simple. Flavor was lightly sweet, fruity (cooked), with some chocolate and residual sugar, not bad but quite simple and empty. Especially considering the ABV, which was not felt much, but everything else was seemingly dampened together with alcohol. Medium body with shorter, chocolate and dark cooked fruity finish. Not bad, showed some very fine notes, but not more than an average Belgian style brew. Expected so much more seeing these ratings! Brand surely sells here.

Brown bottle, 330ml. Pours cola black/brown with a medium brown foam subsiding average. Scent is medium dense Belgian yeast, caramel, toffee.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tapped out dark brown. 25ºSRM.
Nose was sweet and suggested honey and dates.
Mouthfeel was alcoholic and sweet. Palate had dark fruits with black plums, honey plums and dates. Maybe even some sweet almost overripe Kyoho, the wondrously fruity complex darkly sweet Japanese mountain grapes. There is some nice alcoholic heat in the back of the throat to finish.

Bottle at home. As "Monk’s Brew". Aroma is malt, spices, caramel, raisins, yeast, candy sugar, a welcome touch of chocolate. Flavour is sugary sweet, a bit sticky, with a little bitterness in the finish. Body is medium. Nice take on the Trappist Quad, rich and smooth.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Dark brown with a small off-white head. Alcohol taste is so strong. Gets better with every sip, as you get used to it. Quite sweet flavour, medium bitter, yeast, spices, roasted malt and more that I can’t really figure out what is. It’s quite a big gulp and the abv seems to be a bit overpowering.
