The top product from the Rochefort Trappist brewery. Dark color, full and very impressive taste. Strong plum, raisin, and black currant palate, with ascending notes of vinousness and other complexities.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2007 bottle....bigger brother of the 8 is precisely it.....i wonít bother too much with describing this one but all in all, thereís a lot of dark fruit, sugar, maple, and spice. nice bold flavor with a bigger body than that of its younger sibling. the sweetness is on the perfect level and the alcohol is very non-existent tastewise which iím sure will catch up to me in a matter of minutes....sweet beer.

this was one of the best beers iíve tryed so far. apperance was thick a dark. aroma was fruit, candy, bubble gum and maybe even soap but probably some herb or spice i cant name. the taste took me the entire bottle sipping to even get an idea. raisins, figs, sugar, honey. as it warmed over time the fruiits changed along with the overall feel. the alcohol is perfectly hidden. the feel over the tongue is thick and tingles as it warms. too complex of a beer for me to accuratly describe at this point.

11.2 oz bottle into a goblet. Dark red-purple body with thin off-white head. Powerful aroma of bananas and bubble gum. Taste is dominated by dark fruits --figs, plums, dates-- and a honey-like sweetness that is more than balanced by the alcohol. Actually a bit hot with EtOH as it warms.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2008 My first Quad! Bottle from Astor liquors in Laurel, MD. Pours a muddy, chestnut brown with a nice thin white head...poured this one very gently into Trappist glass. Aroma is of dark fruits(figs, plums), doughy yeast, malt. Flavor has an amzing contrast. There are the typical subdued yeast and malt flavors unique to Belgian strong ales but the finish has definately got some heat on it due to the 11.3%abv. Some candied rum comes through...very nice. The body itself feels a little thin, but in a good way I suppose given that Iím enjoying it so much. There is just the right amount of carbonation here. A delicious Belgian that will keep you warm and happy!

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Canít give this one high enough praise. Great aroma, and even better taste. Each sip presents a new taste sensation. Proud to say I can find these fairly easy in my area (Tampa Bay). One of the best beers in the world for good reason.

330 mL bottle. Hazy dark brown with big foamy light tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, chocolate, and caramel. Tastes of molasses, caramel, vanilla with an understated plum taste at the end and a smooth slightly alcoholic finish. Quite good.

Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma is of candied sugar, caramel, molasses, raisons, and alcohol. Very delicious aroma that makes me excited to actually try it. Flavor starts off with candied sugars that give way to the molasses raisons and finishes with plenty of alcohol warming. This beer was definetely worth the cost.

Thanks to mgumby10 for the bottle. Pours a dark, extremely dense brown color with a thick, creamy white head that hung around for quite some time. Hints of oak, blackberries, raisins, and some bread dough. WOW! Slightly tingly, full mouth feel. Candied sugar beginning that runs in to a malty body of multiple dark fruits that are indistinguishable. Mildly dry finish with almost no sense of the alcohol. First Abt/Quadrupel Iíve had and Iím now a believer. Fine, fine brew. Glad I have another bottle that Odeed hooked me up with.
