COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

33 cl bottle from LCBO...properly labeled with all the neccessary warnings. Pours a dark clouded red-brown ale into my Westmalle chalace with a proper 2 finger off-white cap..cap reduces to a proper mat and laces well. Aroma is intoxicating...chocolate, figs, smokey-vanilla bean sweetness and a musty under tone. Silken mouthfeel, creamy-cocoa character...best mouth feel and palate of any beer I’ve tasted! Starts with a warm shower of deeply toasted malts and coffee-cocoa tones which become balanced with some tame but assertive hop bearing...mid palate the mix gets more complex, there are a number of flavor decernments but the one that stands out is that of a chocolate covered smoked apple...finishes wet with more flavors arriving late;earthy dates, toffee-earthiness and smokey fruits...add to this a dangerous drinkability and inherent smoothness and we have one of the world’s best beers. There is little I can say compared to the accolades this beer has had from proper critics....all I know is that I wish I had a consatant access to it...if I did I may lose my love of German dunkler bocks.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2014 Plums, Christmas cake, raisins and the best Westmalle product. page 493 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide. Rerate still the best Westmalle product but that ain’t saying much. Having one currently on draft at the Amsterdam airport.

Pours a ruby red/brown with a medium tan head that dissapates quickly. Aroma of rum, cherry, raisons, plum. Taste is sweet candi malt, dark fruits and nuts. Dry and earthy, but more subdude in the cellar aroma and candi sugar taste then the quads. Very nice.

Bum Bum Bum! Alas, this is infinatley better than the quad. Deep amber color. Very fruity aroma, fizzy texture. Thick, soapy head. Tastes like cherry licorice Short finish. Excellent. Makes me wish I bought more.

Underappreciated as trappist-beer (his brother the blond Triple is more popular), but the dark and mature taste just makes me crazy. I love the fine taste, but I do not hesitate to drink this beer in huge amounts.

smell is nice, dark fruits and hints of chocolate. Nice dark brown color. Taste is plum, raising, dark fruits, flavor seems to last long after you sip. Very complex brew.
