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 !
