Pour is the color of brown sugar with a small maybe finger thick tan head. Nose is of different malt notes. ranging from brown sugar to dark fruits. Taste is a subtle, but sweet dark fruit, nothing overly specific, but just enough to make the beer its own. This is truly one of the best.

Als een goede belg die fier is op zn cultureel erfgoed kan ik niet anders dan dit bier de beste rating geven. Van alle trappisten is deze de Nr. uno! De smaak, de afdronk, de geur etc.. kan nie beter..

2014 bottle. Pour is a beautiful red-brown with a massive offwhite head. Nose is toast slathered in cherry and honey, slight boozy undercurrent. Taste starts with a hit of candi sugar and toffee, then rolls into honey and dark cherries and apricot, hits a yeasty backbone, and finishes with a semisweet fade touched by Euro-hop bitterness. Delicious.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2017 Bottle at the monastery/brewery with commonshawn, rosskyle, samalito, and dubtully. We?ve arrived at the holy grail for beer lovers. Deep plum, almost cola color with a light tan head. Unfiltered. Aroma leans into a dark fruit quality with malty notes. Taste is quintessential quadrupel. Dark fruit and a healthy sweetness without going overboard. There?s a welcome alcohol bite as you progress through consumption. As it warms, it becomes bigger and more alcohol forward. Delicious overall...great mouthfeel, well balanced, almost wine like taste components. Well done, monks.
