4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A dark brown beer, muddy. An off white head, which desolves quickly to a thin long lasting lacing. Sweet aromas of caramelized pear, not very different to other quads. The taste is something else, all the quad characteristics, very complex, high carbonation which is perfect. Quite dry, bitter finish. The alcohol is nog prominent at all, but gives this warm glowing sensation. Indeed a good beer, however overpriced.

Belgian beers arenít often my bag. Theyíre usually an esthery yeastfest with no real malt to them. This beer is traditionally yeasty but has a sort of caramel malt backbone that ties it all together. Spectacular in that respect. Iíd have to agree that this is probably the best quad Iíve had.

Iím not a fan of Belgian beers but this one is pretty good. Itís a lot bit yeasty. Caramel taste. Very foamy feeling. Probably the most unique beer Iíve ever had.

Beer is an excellent representation of the style, but difficult to obtain. Similar to the Rochefort 10 in terms of the flavors present, but it is not so similar to the Bernardus Abt 12 as has been popularly rumored.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Deep chocolate pour with sifting buoyant sediment visible through the chalace. High caramel head actually overflowing bottle when opened. 330ml strong sweet rich raisins with roasted malts and candied sugar nose. Strong alcohol presence. Bright like champagne. Refreshing zestiness throughout. Finishes with the warming of alcohol on the back of the tongue and throat. Wonderful once in a lifetime Texan experience!

Con la fama que tiene esta cerveza me eaperaba mucho de ella y asi fue mi decepcion. Buena espuma y aroma. Pero el sabor no me gusto nada.

0.33 l bottle from beer and chocolate shop in Brussels. Very nice taste, similar to Westvleteren 8. In my mouth this tasted more smooth than that, which is interesting since this has more alcohol.

330ml bottle. Felt sheepish about shelling out the cash for this one, but had to try it. Glad I did. For me, it more than lived up to its lofty reputation. Just an incredible brew. So rich, so complex, so much flavour, old-world character, lasting warmth, layers upon layers of excellence...

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle, deep reddish brown with wery low beige head. Aroma is complex with notes of caramel, dried fruit, honey, nuts, spice and herbs. Taste is full and not too sweet. Notes of bread, caramel, leather, cinnamon, fruit and some honey. The alcohol gives a nice warmth and leads to a long bittersweet finish. Incredibly well balanced and complex, a joy to drink and you want to hold on to it forever.
