4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Got 2 crates of this beer by myself. Thatís almost half of the joy of having it and drinking it. The idea that you have something that you canít buy at the local liquorstore...
The proof of the beer is the drinking.
The bottle leaves no information but the bottlecap so I had no idea of what to expect. The foam is not very stable and the CO2 is well present but not too much. Just enough actually.
Taste is deep and full with a very nice bitterness. Not sweet, just right. I couldnít taste alcohol, thatís fine. The smell is spicy.
I could drink this for ever. This beer is very complete, almost ancient. Maybe this is what beer was supposed to taste so the monks in the Sint Sixtus Abbey listende very well to their Father!

Finally. Perfect colour, nice head, aroma is a killer. Great taste. But donít expect too much. Rochefort will give you the same for smaller price. In my case much smaller.

Ciemny rubin, piana szybko redukuje sie do krazka. Aromat bogaty: wino, przyprawy korzenne, suszone sliwki, marcepan, rum. W smaku przyprawowe, owocowe, z alkoholowym finiszem. Piwo pelne, gladkie, idealnie zbalansowane.
Rich aroma: wine, spices, dry plumes, marzipan, rum. Taste: spices, fruits, alcohol. Beer is very smooth with good balance.

Opaque reddish brown beer with a rich, malty fruit aroma. Taste is very strong. Rich malt, fruit (apple maybe, a touch of something sour), a bit of bitter hop. Aftertaste is more of the sour fruit and very nice.

Mörkt brun nästan svart. Ett stort lätt vitt skum. Överraskande mycket kolsyra, nästan lite stickigt, det stör lite. Visst är det en riktigt trevlig öl. Djupa långa smaker, en njutning att sippa på.

Superb brown beer. With reason so higly rated the only downside is the hype and the crazy pricing.

licorice, raisin, alcohol, green apples, phenolic... honestly tastes a bit like stressed yeast. Not even close to the best quad in the world

Bottle bought at SchaliŽnhuis in Temse.
Pours dark brown with a medium beige head. Taste is similar with the Extra 8. This one is extra fruity, extra flavour of chocolate and a silky creamy feeling.
