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.

Pours a cloudy, molassesy brown with a beige head. Aromas of malt, fruit and floral qualities as well as notes that remind me of port wine. The flavors are extraordinary and highly complex. Rich with excellent fruitiness, floral/spiciness with noteworthy chocolate notes at the finish. This is a meal in a bottle and you’ll want to make sure you get every drop out of the bottle!

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Bottle - unknown date. Dark brown with a light head and some sediment showing up at the bottom. Strong malty-wine aroma. Sweet fruit taste - sweet raisin bread-like. Very nice mouthfeel from start to finish. Finishes very nicely with just a slight hint of alcohol. Wonderful balance. Wow - this is what a quad is supposed to taste like. American brewers should take note.

Bottled - my first quad. A whole bunch of raisin in the aroma, and a very sweet flavor but it’s very smooth and very balanced. Absolutely delicious.

A joy to drink. Have poured many a Belgium and this by far is my favorite. Just to hold this brew under my nose and enjoy the aroma is worth the price.

WeeHeavySD (3367) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 2, 2006
Bottle. Pours deep cloudy amber with a smaller head then its little sister 8. The aroma is less complex then the 8 but smell of fruit and is very clean and strong. There ae hints of figs in the aroma. The flavor is very malty and sweet and goes down smooth, this beer is extremely drinkable and it hides the alchol content nicely. The availability of this beer means everyone should at least try it if not have it regularly.

burpfrank (299) - carpinteria, California, USA - SEP 1, 2006
faint oak barrel aroma.Average head.Color was a dark brown.Tasted almost like a whisky.High alcohol.The alcohol really dominated the taste.Was able to taste some chocolate malt.Much easier to drink than the Stone Imperial stout.Has classic Trappist taste.After reading the commercial description I do taste the raisens and plums.A guy can get drunk on this.I really think it is overrated,unless you are rating the alcohol content.I drink for taste ,not to get drunk.I guess with this you have both!!
