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: 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.

Fine dark brown look with a thick fast disappearing brown head. Wonderfull sweet fruity aroma of strawberries, blackcurrant and dextrose. Flavor is extremly nice, very complex. Sweet fruits, some wood with a present alchohol to balance it out. Finish is dry and bitter. Fantastic beer.

Dark Dark dark brpw wotj a very dense tan head. The nose is big and sweet and round with plenty of malt, raisins and prunes. Big ass creamy body with a rather thick texture. The alcohol seems to balance the malt here more than anything else, which is nice and liquor-like. Somewhat woody somewhat toasty aspect couples with the alcohol astringency to big balance and make this a dry beer with a slightly alcohol aftertaste, despite being so sweet. I loved this beer, but it was at the end of a heavy tasting session, so itís hard to make out my notes.. must try again!

sampled this at Brugge Beejste. Even though I have had this in the US, it almost seemed of better quality over there. Very sweet, and highly alcoholic (my type of beer). I tasted raisens and plum flavors if that makes sense.Nice dark, almost purple black color, no doubt from the dark candy sugars. Ranks up there with the best.
