UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 Ottimo esempio di Quadrupel, anche se sembra quasi una barley wine. Il corpo è strutturato e in bocca si percepiscono chiaramente decise note di frutta secca, cioccolato e marzapane, ma soprattutto note vinose. Da non perdere!

Couleur rouge ambrée trouble, très légère mousse qui disparait. Nez de vieux fruits sucrés (vieilles fraises) et alcool. Gout doux de levures, vieux fruits, fruits secs, note de caramel. Fin rapide. Bière particulière, mais pas mal!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 350ml bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a clear reddish brown, with a moderate khaki head that quickly dissipates, leaving a disc on the surface. Nose is caramel and dark malt, with a hint of Belgian yeast banana and clove notes. Taste is malt forward, with many different layers. Thick, creamy mouth feel, with a long finish. Just a slight touch of hops on the finish. Delicious. An outstanding quad, but not surprising coming from La Trappe.

33cl bottle poured in a Trappist glass. Pours dark brown with a thin white head which quickly dissipates. Taste is extremely sweet - caramel, bready, toffee much like Bush Noel mixed with Bombs and Grenades. Overall a good barley wine but a little flat and one dimensional. Some more depth to back the sweet notes would be nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown color with low foam. Intense aroma resulting from the combination of malt, caramel and toffee with raisins, dates, prunes and a hint of orange, accompanied by soft but strong hints of liquorice, aniseed and cinnamon.
Dates on the taste, some orange, cherries, peppery spice and soft warm breath of alcohol, giving a deep and comforting end.
