Zuster Agatha is a dark beer with 10% ABV. Brewed according to the Trappist traditions and only natural ingredients. Althoug these types of beer a normally named after male chatholics the brewer still decided to name it after Sister Agatha. It’s a beer to enjoy in peace and quite. It has a complex aroma with fruit, raisins and roasted malts. It’s full and solid with a surprisingly dry finish. It invites you to take another sip. Please be careful with this high alcoholic beer as the strenght might attack you by surprise. Brewed for and with the recipe of de Muifel Brouwerij (http://www.muifelbrouwerij.nl/).

Countbeer (5907) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2011
Bottle: Big light brown head on top of a deep dark amber brown colored beer. Smell sweets, popcorn, toasted malts, brown sugars and some spices like cinnamon. Taste is a wonderfull mix of toasted malts, sticky malts, light but good medicinal, dark fruits like raisin, prunes, nice soft smooth bitter touch, some brown sugars, barleys, molasses. All well balanced. Dark fruit sweet sticky malty well balanced aftertaste. Low carbo, full body, soft mouthfeel and a light sticky texture. Good brew! Hope they will barrel age this beer in the future.

MrHangover (3755) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle from ABCBeers, The Hague. Dark ruby red colour, with an off white head that leaves really quickly, leaving a little ring on top. Aroma has wine, roast, dough and some alcohol. Flavour is a bit sweet, like candi sugar, finished dry and a bit bitter, making it a bit different than other quadrupels i’ve had. I could notice some darker fruits in the flavour, like vigs and blackberries.

Pretty strong beer this one. A bit sweet (like a lot of Belgian beers) but not too much.

LomYst (758) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2011
Headless, clear black... spicey aroma, bit alchoholic, sour malts... taste is sweet ’n sour, not that complex at all, some spices in the finish make it nice though... medium bodied simple quad, wouldn’t order it again

Martinus (4352) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2011
Clear dark brown beer, light reveals a dark amber hue. Yellowish head. Aroma of malts, lots of caramel, some liquorice (trekdrop), and prominent alcohol. Sweet flavour, slightly bitter, caramel, malts, slight liquorice, rather thin for a quadrupel. Nice finish, dry and bitter with some alcohol warmth. (From 30cL bottle)

2010 edition GREAT BEER, poors brown with a off-white head, head dissipates quickly. leaves a nice lacing on the glass. taste is sweet, but not overly sweet. this a nice attribute to have for a quad, since most quadrupels are lemonade-sweet. this actually is on the dry hand, which you wouldn’t expect in a quadrupel aroma is awsome, some roasting, but not too much. very complex beer. also some raisins present and a faint bit of licorice and vannilla. also a bit of fruit. Almost no alcohol tastes. body is medium, not much carbonation, although it is present. the texture is quite thick. the finish is long lasting, but a bit astringent. this beer can have some aging. Overall, a great beer, definitely get one when you have the chance.

Bottle from Bier Koning. Hazy brown beer, residual white head. Semi dry palate - a little frothy. Rich malt - a little aged tasting. Tint hint of fruit. Neutral finish. Pleasant enough.
