4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle.The pour was a murky medium chestnut brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown frothy head that reduced to a large cap, which lasted throughout and allowed for some excellent sheets of lace.
The aroma was a dark bread malt and a sweaty yeast with notes of caramel, a host of dark fruit (black cherries, plums, figs and raisins) and a large hint of alcohol.
The taste was moderately sweet and a bit acidic with a nice caramel flavor in the beginning, and finished sweetly acetic with a big dose of dark fruit and a heavy alcohol funk at the end. The flavor lasted for quite a while with a fruity alcohol warming sensation left behind for one to enjoy.
Mouthfeel was medium in body with a creamy, dry, syrupy texture and a nice lively carbonation.
Overall this is an intensely satisfying and tasty beer, with a ton of unique flavors that are blended together extremely well. This is most definitely a brew to be savored again and again…

Alcohol, toffee, winter fruits aromas. Big and balanced. Light palate. Lingering alcohol taste with a warming effect. Fizzy and acidic. Missing the champagne bubbles of Westvleteren XII but a great substitute.

Bottle 330ml (2015) – cellared for 1 year. Served at room temperature. Pours a murky, dark brown with a ruby tint. Head is large, beige, and is mostly lasting. Aroma is of herbaceous hops; wholegrain bread, Belgian candy sugar, overripe dark plums, raisins, pears skins, caramel, dried leaves, coriander, cinnamon and pepper. Flavour is exceptionally smooth with a light herbaceous-hop bitterness; lightly toasted wholegrain bread, dried currants, dried blueberries, plums, cooked brown sugar, dried leaves, hints of dark chocolate and notes of black pepper in the finish. Full bodied with medium carbonation, oily texture and a long, warming finish. An unbelievably smooth and well balanced Belgian Quad!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not really my kind of beer at the first taste, but became more pleasant after a few more. Mildly bitter taste. I also believe I’ve tasted a nuance of vanilla. On the contrary to what every says, I think the alcohol taste is quite prominent. However, it is a pleasant level. Be sure to try it out ;)

Fruity aroma, dark brown color, nice beige head. I like it, it is very strong but you cannot sense the alcohol. But I got drunk after one.

I will have to try this one again, and get better tasting notes. I was out with family in a crowded small bar when I got this. I just remember it was one of my all time favorite beers.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tout d’abord l’apparence est superbe, mousse dense et ambrée et une couleur de caramel avec des magnifiques reflets rouges. Des arômes subtils et équilibrés avec un note de fruits trop murs très agréable. légère pointe de réglisse à l’attaque mais qui heureusement disparait très vite. Très onctueuse en bouche avec un goût est équilibré, tirant tout de même plus sur l’amer que le sucré, amateur de bière "bubblegum" s’abstenir. Bref une bière magnifique, seul reproche, son coté tellement parfait qui lui fait perdre un poil de personnalité.

This is a favorite beer. It just works. It is on the expensive side but well worth a try. It’s considered one of the best and it is the best.
