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.

Bottle from Binny’s. Pours dark brown, slight hint of ruby; thin off-white head that didn’t stick around. Chocolate and cherry aroma, with a good bit of cough syrup thrown in the mix along with vanilla. Very rich and sweet, yet balanced well with a little bitter finish followed by a huge caramel aftertaste. Extremely full bodied, light carb. A bit boozy, but I have no doubt that this would improve with age. Overall, I’m still not a fan of quads, and it’s no westy, but still a fantastic brew, given the style. Solid sipper. 4.5/4/4/3.5/4 *** Tasted blind as part of top 10 quad tasting with callmemickey and sideshowe. A - translucent dark brown with little head. S - Banana peel, chocolate, some roasted nuts and a nice earthy smell. T - Very rich sweet treacle and toffee with a slightly roasty bitter finish. A sweet dark caramel lingers on the tongue. M - Perfect carbonation, little heat O - Incredibly drinkable and a fantastic accessible version of the style. Finished tied for 3rd with Westy 12 for me. 4/4.5/4/4.5/4.5

Brunatne, mętne piwo o obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i redukuje się do pierścionka przy brzegu szkła. Aromat przyjemny, słodkawy, alkoholowy, owocowy, rodzynki i śliwka. W smaku z jednej strony słodkie, wyklejające całą jamę ustną, a z drugiej strony wytrawne, ziołowe, alkoholowe. Goryczka wysoka, ziołowa, alkoholowa. Ogólnie bardzo udane piwo, z każdym łykiem czuć ciężar gatunku, ale mimo to jest ono dość pijalne, jednak u mnie przewagę o dosłownie włos ma z tego browaru "8".

Nose is a gentle mixture of banana, honey, raisins and malt. The taste replicates the nose, but adds further complexity. Dark berries, brown sugar, tropical fruit and some soft spices are complimented by a very soft effervescence and appropriately rich body. As good as advertised (if you are not a hop head).

Poors dark and heavy. Caramel, marcipan, figs, vanilla, hint of banana and raisin slight warm alcohol but not disturbing at all. Finish is long full of dark fruits. Just brilliant one of my favourite Belgians.

There is a reason that this is consistently rated as one of the top beers in the world, it's fantastic! Because of the alcohol content you need to be careful. But non the less one of my favourites! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow. En supergod øl, hvis eneste ulempe er den høje alkohol-procent. Flot farve og lækker smag
