fizzy, medium body, well balanced beer with a light aftertaste. The yeast itself is a bit bitter and has great influence on the aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,33 bottle purchased and consumed in Kosovo in its original glass. Pours a reddish dark brown (chestnut skin) color, some sediments in the end (I have not poured it all) and a nice dark ivory foamy head. Nose: round and pleasant attack of dry fruit (prunes dominate the nose), fresh juicy black figs, fruity overall feel, hidden but perceivable hoppy bitterness. Mouth: what a joy to drink it during a winter evening! Juicy and chewy maltiness, dry fruits, good carbonation, some after taste pleasant alcohol notes, soul warming feel. Great beer.

Excellent quad, that is very bold in flavors and appearance without too much of an alcohol taste. I prefer however rochefort 10, which gives me a mire heavenly after feel

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I had been dying ti try this beer and I finally got my hands on a bottle. It was poured into a Trappist glass and had a thick creamy head that dissipated slowly but left lots of lacing. The smell was malty but not overpowering. The aromas kind of disappears. I could hardly smell the alcohol though. The taste was malts and complex fruits and somewhat sweet like caramel or brown sugar but not too sweet either. Really nice to drink this beer as it warms. There’s a definite bitterness in the back, like a mild aftertaste but it only makes me want to drink it more. Hard to describe but reminds me of a Tannin taste from a wine, but not bad.. This quad feels smooth and slightly bubbly. It’s actually really nice to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0,75l, brown color with fast falling head. Aroma of raisins, soy sauce and alcohol. It has a nice balance of sweetness bitterness and some sourness, but still the beer is quite heavy and oily. Alcohol could be hidden better.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; room temperature.
Very very good beer, not as good as the Westvleteren XII, but very good.
Great appearance, but most of all, great taste of trappist yeast.
Go get it !
