4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
