This beer is a tribute to two great Belgian breweries. It’s a strong amber ale brewed with loads of candi sugar and fermented with yeast from Westvleteren and De Dolle Brouwers.

Bottle. Grainy brew, muddy color. Sweet fruit, vinous, port character. Probably better when fresh, but still very interesting.

Bottle. Black and quite lively on opening. Full bodied and powerful.Poured with a medium head.Complex range of flavours-all of them pleasant. Should carry a warning, this beer is dangerously easy to drink.

Another very last bottle from the cellar of the brewer - Thanx for sharing your last drops of these early goodys. Off cause its not all fair to rate these ones this late - but they are still blowing away some true attitude, so even though they have changed caracter a bit since their younger days, they are still great. The pour is light grumsy brown like swamp water with a nice light crown. The aroma is nice and different with laqurice root, soap and fresh cutted hay. The taste is very De Dolle-like with a high carbonation. It’s very alive and sparkling with a sweetness as a traditional trappist brew. The alcohol is up front and agressive with a finish that has malty flavours along with caramel and marzipan. Its full-bodies but ends up very dry in your mouth. A nice and crazy Quad. Thx Mikkel

SDalkoholic (2261) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Bottle from Pizza Port bottle shop: Poured a medium brown color with some dark tint too it while a thin layer of head was created and showed specs of sediment as if it were sand resting in the foam. The nose is mild with only a minimum amount of hops and slightly toasted malt to be smelt, so it didn’t turn me on right away. Flavors are somewhat bland and go unnoticed, although, there is an undeniable presence of toasted malts and some strong healthy yeast, but I just didn’t find much I liked about this Monk’s brew to talk about.

Bottle@Home. Port aroma with black grapes and a little dusty. Hazy, amber colour, irregular off-white head, no lace. Rather sweet, port, banana, fruity, white grapes, pineapple. Sparkling. Powerful, complex, bit past it’s prime I’m afraid.
