Bottle - a near black, near perfect beer. This was quality. Lots of liquorice, coffee, chocolate, fruit, malt... oh, so many. Very complex beer, well balanced with a boozy warm kick at the end. Need another now! Waiter!

(Bottled) Drinking 11% Quadrupel beer at 1.45 in the afternoon is one of the perks of entrepreneurialism ; this is actually pretty swillable , with the booze being cool and satisfying. A rich caramel palate ,lots of complex tart fruit esters, both cherry and plum..brown candy sugar covered in silky butteriness. Some floral hops lurk under the dark flavours...

draft that poured a medium mahogany color with off white head that disappeared quickly. the aroma was of sweet malts thick and flavorful some red fruits. mild bitterness in the nose and mouth fell. the flavor was delicious. medium to heavy body full and rich with plenty of sweet malts. dark fruit mix and a nice mild alcohol burn on the end...excellent from start to finish.

Iíve been sitting on this one since my pre-RB days. Okay, thatís not so long. Looks incredible - Deep tar pit brown with a big tan head that has no business on a beer this strong. So much lace I can barely read the Chimay logo on the opposite side of the chalice. Smells like old currants, dates and sweet baking spices. Yeasty bittersweet malt flavor that is only a letdown relative to the aroma. Very thick texture but smooth and easy drinking. Finish that dries out slowly. Highly recommended.
