Blind quad test against Pannepot, St Bernardus 12, Rochefort 10, Westvleteren 12, St Amatus 12, The Sixth Glass, & Chimay Blue My prefered order was; Pannepot, Rochefort 10, St Amatus 12, Westvleteren 12, St Bernardus, Pannepeut, Sixth Glass and last Chimay. This one is really the best of the classic quads, aroma compared to other quads you get a lot more citrus and some refreshing notes. Taste is some almost blackberries and plum, very much dark fruit, and quite earthy, it’s a real dark fruit bomb, with belgian yeast and some licorice and lingering citrus spruce inputs from the hops.

Donkerbruine kleur met flinke beige schuimkraag. Aroma van fruit, fris. Smaakt super, wel wat zoet. Topper.

Pours a dark brown colour with a creamy off white head. Aroma of dark malts, plum, raisin. Sweet and smooth but complex flavour. Dark fruits, quite carbonated, which makes a very big beer seem much lighter in alcohol. Very rich, full bodied and moorish and not at all overpowering. Where do they hide the alcohol? I i can’t find it; but will be on the floor later. Wow.

again one of those beers what belgians are famous for - rich taste, better drink it cellar temp than fridge. Deserves its top ratings it gets here.

Pours a dark mahogany brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is of dark fruit, toffee, spices and alcohol. Taste is sweeter than expected, big dark fruit, coffee, rum and alcohol. Creamy and smooth with medium carbonation. A very solid Quad.

bigda83 (32) - Jamestown, New York, USA - APR 17, 2014
Dark brown pour with nice head. Aroma kind of smelled like uncorked wine with Belgian yeast, raisin, plum, some sweetness and I got hints of rotting fruit perhaps. There was some alcohol to the taste and plenty of plum and raisin, following the nose. Nice and creamy on the palate with a bit of spice. Overall very well done beer.

Best beer I ever drunk, better than West-Vleteren in my opinion. Very rich taste, a bit fruity, very balanced.

Forget the pour and head and appearance. This product must be experienced if you even think that you are some kind of beer connoisseur. Imagine all the great buttery breads and candies and dark fruits in Europe. Put em together and imbibe. Truly something to behold. From Licorice and raisins to plums and walnut sweetbread. From Twizzlers and toasted nuts to bananas and apricot. The more you drink and think the more different combos and nuances you can come up with. A thing you must do. Wonderful and satisfying.
