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. Itís a beer to enjoy in peace and quite. It has a complex aroma with fruit, raisins and roasted malts. Itís 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/).

Douberd (4921) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at hoe, poured into a big snifter. ABV 10% Deep red brown colour on the body, seems quite clear when hold against the light/ Onew finger of tan head, thin but with good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass as it collapses. Aroma of caramel, light malty, dark fruits, raisins, plums, black grapes, light alcohol. Taste of dark fruitsmostly raisins and plums, sugar, alcohol that gives a nice warmth on the body without burning on the tongue. Quite sweet but without being cloying. A touch of bitterness on the aftertaste. Great! Medium thick body, average carbonation. A bit sticky on the palate. Overall a very nice quadrupel, on par with more well-known names out there, but I donít see it so often around and thatís a pity.

Shared with Lennart 16/12/13. Very dark beer. Medium carbonation. Smells like chocolate, though not very expressive. Sweet taste. Also hints of dark chocolate. Just how I like it. Good beer.

Bosskie (766) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2013
Pitch black transparent beer with surface carbonation and a nice thick head. Red accents int he light. Smell is yeasty breadiness with subtle coffee toffee and citric fruitiness. Full creamy sweet sour taste, with a fizzy metallic feel. Well balanced but with little taste development.

Borresteijn (6498) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2013
33cl Bottle from Secret Sint, cheers! Deep dark reddish brown colour, beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, brown sugar, light spicy, plums, some currants. Flavour is sweet, malty, dark fruits, brown sugar, hint of spice, more sugar, decent bitter finish with some alcohol. Medium-bodied, a little fizzy. Nice, but lacks a bit of depth to be really great.

09 bottle shared by Kermis, thanks man. Pours red brown with medium head and lacing. Notes of prune, grape juice, wet wood, oak, malt, and other darker fruits. Nice balance with a good bit of complexity. Smells a lot older than it is. Very nice brew.

2009 vintage bottle shared. Pours cloudy brown with a small tan head. With the age beer has developed towards the porty side of age, with a dank mouldy cellar aspect, overripe dark fruit and caramel. Flavour is light heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

Mooie donkere roodbruine kleur met een volle kraag. Fruitige friszoete geur. Smaakt lekker vol, rood fruit met een bittere nadronk.

Vells (1608) - RÓga, Latvija, LATVIA - SEP 29, 2013
Quite intense roasted malts.. was surprised to taste that in quad, but not bad. Caramel, bit yeasty, nice fruitiness, but again - less intense than I expect from quad. Sweet, bit dry. Very interesting and enjoyable brew
