Pours deep brown with small sediments floating around. Off-white creamy head. Aroma of dried fruit, slight caramel and roasted notes. Flavour is chocolate, dried fruit, caramel sweet and slight bitter. Doesn’t hit the same smooth balance as Westie 12. Nice but not perfect

Aroma of caramel, toffee, spices, raisins. Pours brown with beige head, unfortunately not stable. Taste is balanced between sweetness and sourness with caramel, spices, fruits and wine. Bitterness is low. Overall very nice quadrupel but not delightful. I think I drunk it too fresh, so I will keep a couple of bottles for aging.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle poured at my brother’s house in Methuen, MA. This is a complex beer with a lot going on (and it all seems to work) but i’ll do my best. Pours a cloudy reddish brown with some sediment. The beige head was pillowy but died quickly and left no lacing. I poured this beer when it was too cold so I didn’t get a lot of aroma at first but after I let it sit awhile I got cherries and red wine smells. Taste is hard to describe; good but hard to describe. There is an alcohol taste and some carbonation, along with cherries and spice of some sort. It has a hoppy, malty aftertaste and a nice slight bitter finish. This is a very drinkable beer; the more I taste it, the more I like it.

This is an overall great beer and enjoyed it thoroughly. It is quite hard to find in New York City however.

Smells like fruits and nuts. Has a dark ruby color. Has a taste of cherries, figs, plums, mixed with a port wine. Later you get a taste of oak, combined with some hops. It has a bitter finish.

Un top du top.
Très dure à définir. On est sur des notes épicées et typées genre Chimay bleue.
L’alcool est très présent : ne pas hésiter à la laisser reposer une dizaine de minutes dans un verre calice pour que l’alcool se calme et les arômes se révèlent. Limiter la mousse : elle n’en a pas besoin.
Déguster en mangeant quelque chose de fort en goût : bourguignon, gibier etc... Chaque gorgée a quelque chose à faire découvrir.

Bottle. Excuse me, could I have my beer back? Someone stole it and left me with a glass of head. Now, that said...Pours a clear red-brown with a very, very high light brown head; extremely creamy, extremely lacy, and very very solid. Looks like you could walk on it. On the palate, it’s a bakery gone wild; dark fruit. spice, vanilla, and yeasty notes. Finish is long and sweet. Darn Belgians. They’re too good at this.
