There’s no denying it, this is a great beer. Nice full body in palate, aroma and flavor. Upon pouring you can smell the plum and rasin. Well balanced and looks great. It finishes a bit astringent for my tastes, but that does nothing to take away from the quality of this beer.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 If you haven’t had this one yet, be prepared for a shock; This is a very flavorful beer! Makes most other belgian quads seem a little one dimensional by comparison. Earth, plum, wood and caramel falvors get along famously. Rated high and rightly so...

Just shared a bottle with one of my friends and we were blown away. It had a deep reddish brown hue. The aroma was very complex but the taste is what really got us. No bitternes left on the palate with smooth rich flavors and a touch of sweetness. I have to get more of this in my cellar.

Wonderful beer. Poured a very dark, cloudy brown with an immense tan head that lasted quite some time, leaving behind some nice lacing. Aroma is rich and fruity, with some caramel notes and a hint of wood. Well balanced malt flavor with some roasted fruitiness and a definite alcohol presence. Very warm and smooth going down. Excellent Trappist brew.

Sweet cocoa, appley fruit aroma. Flavor is much of the same. Light Tan head. Mahogany color. Alcohol is present in the flavor but not the alcohol bite that I detest. Hidden extremely well for 11.3%. Great sipping brew.

(on bottle)taking the last bottle from my crade, I felt sade. it´s taken me some two years to drnk that crade and now it´s all over. I also felt as if something was missing. While drinking the beer I came upon it; I never rated the goddawn beer!! So here goes. A very nice dark belgian brew,; hazy through to murky caramelbrown colour. Very intense nose; mostly bready and roasted flavours, some burned figs too. Taste was dominated by carameld nd fudge, the forestfruits are there, but only in the finish, witch is a tad too alcoholic for my liking.

Bottle. Dark brown with fluffy tan head that lasts throughout-- really fine carbonation. Clear with a bit of yeast sediment. Balanced nose of dark malt, dark fruits, alcohol, toast, yeast, and bitter chocolate or toffee. Flavor is a wonderful balance of deep, rich malt and fantastic yeast, with a present, but not overwhelming, alcohol warmth. Finish is sticky-sweet and yeasty, like a good dark bread. Outstanding stuff, and well worth the price!

One of my favorite beers. Strong, rich,, deep and complex flavor. It goes great with any meal I’ve tried - mostly grilled hamburgers or steaks. Highly recommended!
