4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Poured a muddy dark brown with little bits of yeast floating with a large frothy tan head that was quickly dissipating and had fair lacing. The aroma was of a roasted bread malts, light herbal hops and a doughy yeast with notes of molasses, plums, figs and raisons. It tasted wonderfully malty-sweet at first with a hint of molasses and finished a bitter-sweet with notes of dried fruit and had a mild alcohol twinge. Mouthfeel was med to full in body and quite creamy in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall an outstanding strong ale, defintely worth trying!!

33cl BBE 09/12/2019 Rather fresh. Aroma of caramelized cherries, bread, burnt sugar and some nutmeg. Pours dark brown with thin white head. Heavily hazy. Malty and fantastically caramelized beer. Sweet and strong. Medium bodied and extremely carbonated. Served at 12degC in to trappist goblet. A very strong example of Quad. I would love it to be less fizzy though.

Poured from bottle, 11.2oz, used porter stemmed glass. Large frothy whitish brown head above dark brown color. Smells as described with a hint of vanilla. Palate is smooth and enjoyable. High alcohol content noted in taste but not overwhelming and the overall taste is nice with hint of vanilla and hazelnut at the finish.

Very good, and tasty, dark beer. A bit fruity, but just to in the right amount. Maybe the best in the 8/10/12 Rochefort series.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330 ml bottle. Chocolate smell, with notes of vanilla, cherry, cream, very complex. Dark color with a beautiful white head that doesn’t fade. Extraordinary. Bitter taste, but very balanced. Elegant beer that even if intense, it doesn’t exacerbate nothing. Because is a strong beer, you can feel it with your throat, but not the alcohol, just the great taste. Fantastic beer, i can die in peace now.

Bottle, aged 2.5 years, deep brown color with dark red reflex, lightly tan head, not very persistent,.
Sweet aroma, liquor notes, caramel malt.
In mouth are smooth with really low carbonation, i have thinked about a much solid body, but it’s not heavy, almost silky, sweet sensation, dried fruit (raisins...), malt, liquor (good rum?), great sweet aftertaste.
