3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a small off- white frothy head that mostly diminishes. Body is copper colored and sparkling. Aroma contains light bread, roasted malts, caramel, grapefruit, dough, grape and raisin, spices and alcohol. Flavor is sweet and light bitter, going to sweet and to finish in bitter. Body is full and syrupy, with soft carbonation. The total is a bit boozy, there's too much alcohol in it for my taste. Still having a cold, so I might not have picked up all aroma's. I'll try it again another time, but give it some more time to mature.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle) Clear toffee brown with ruby highlights and good off-white head. Subtle and pleasant caramel aroma. Fantastic palate - slightly creamy, very slightly sticky, plenty of body with excellent carbonation that is both mouthfilling and bright. Excellent taste - the backbone is a rich pleasant caramel maltiness. There’s some subtle berry notes in the foretaste and some nice gentle pepper and spice in the finish, with some of the alcohol showing through. Great beer.

Cerveza cuadruple exquisita, con toques afrutados y dulces. Entra de lujo y tiene un olor que invita a beberla. Repetiré.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Splendida quadrupel belga, colore arancio scuro bruno, schiuma poco persistente e non compatta, molto dolce all’olfatto e ovviamente anche al palato vista la gradazione. Sapore di malto, caramello, frutta nel tipico stile di queste birre d’abbazia. Eccellente, l’alcool si sente ma non limita la godibilità.

Reddish orange colour with creamy head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, citrus, dark fruits and hops. Flavour is the same with evident alcohol note, but at the same time is well hidden or discret.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2015 330 ml bottle
Orangeish to reddish brown hazy beer with beige head leaving lacing. Aroma has alcohol, Belgian yeast, licorice, dark sugar and dark fruits. Flavor has licorice, alcohol, yeast and dark fruits. Palate is full and foamy. Finish has mild bitterness and alcohol. Aftertaste is liqueurish sweet with dark sugar, licorice, figs and yeast. At first this beer was way too boozy, but adding the sediment softened it and made it more enjoyable. Still quite straight-forward and too sweet.

Biere lourde au goût fort prononcé. On sent fort l’alcool. Goût de malt et de caramel. l’alcool est trop puissant.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Strong taste of alcohol, but it was expected from a beer of 11,5%. Not bad in the genre, but not my kind.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Citrus aroma. Strong alcohol in the mouth. Rather unbalanced in the way that it’s too strong and unrefined.
