COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

The apperance was very dark with a big head. There was a deffinate coffee smell. There were too many flavors for my liking. I agree with another reviewer that the alchol is very well hidden as far as taste goes. I found the palate somewhat bland. Other than that an ok beer.

Aroma is wonderful. Dark fruit, maybe some banana/clove scents and with nutiness. Color is very dark, head is big at first, but diminishes quickly... Flavor is full and parallels aroma nicely. Banana, cloves, nuts, prune, and maybe some toffee. Excellent.

Pours thick and heavy dark color. Head is tan in color that stays. Aroma is that of roasted nutiness and coffee. Hides the alcohol very well. Surprisingly drinkable and very very good.

Bottle in good company with pailhead. Poured a creamy off white head with a decent amount of carbonation a clean brown in color Mild malt aroma with some chocolate and toffee .Flavor was mild with chocolate fruit fig and a light creamy finish. At this point it is hard to get excited I just consumed a Westy 12 .

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2006 Damn this is a good beer. Only my 2nd Quad so far, but man this one is much much better than the first one i had. Alcohol is completely hidden out of view. This beer is so smooth, the flavors just balance together perfectly and really I canít imagine doing much more to make this beer taste better. The aroma was a little mild, but you can smell the fig, raisin sort of qualities this beer has. The taste is quite bready, not sweet, not bitter, not sour this beer is right in the middle of all the senses. I love it, itís great without being offensive.

good beer. Not the best Belgian Quad, but it is definitely a staple Trappist.

This is the best beer Iíve ever had. A perfect balance between full body, high alcohol content and drinkability. My only problem with it is that mine had quite a bit of sediment. Not sure if this is common, but next one I find Iíll check for sediment before I buy it.

Very cloudy dark brown. Good bite. Tastes of figs, plums, raisins, a hint of rye bread. Smooth malty feel. Some kind of smokey tobacco like dryness. For 11.3 alc is not too apparent. Very complex and interesting.
