UPDATED: JAN 7, 2009 Bottle at Beer Mania, Brussels. This is the holy grail. Little foam, heavy on alcohol but you can barely notice that. The brew is licorice colored. Then, the taste is complex, dense, carbonated and highly sweet. Finishes very softly and the taste remains for a long time afterwards. Perfection.

2014 bottle. Late check in from Feb 17. Fruity, wine-ish, caramel. Warming (not bad) alcohol. Simply a solid quad.

Wonderful. Lives up to expectations. Strong without being heavy. Rich and flavorful and not overly sweet.

Hier hoeven weinig woorden aan vuilgemaakt te worden. Zeer goed donker abdijbier! Enig minpunt de triestige commerciële uitbuiting op de site in WestVleteren... Heeft dit bier niet nodig.

It is the best Quad. There are others that are close, but none can beat this.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2017 Dark toffee stickiness, and all of the Belgian characteristics you want in a quad. Glad to have a few more left.

Bottle from surethin_ii, lot of thanks. This is supposed to be one of best beers at all and it doesn’t disappoint. Very rich aroma, raisins, caramel, roasted malt, plums. Deep black colour, strong beige head. Rich strong taste, raisins, dark fruits, sweet, bitter, a lot of taste, long bitter fruity finish. There’s everything, love it.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2017 Эль с удивительной историей. Удачный ли это маркетинг или вынужденная необходимость, но его ограниченное производство и продажа потенциально влияют на вердикт по его оценке и вызывает большой интерес. Пожалуй, до него нужно дорасти. Но даже будучи новичком, я наслаждался каждым глотком и исключительно при комнатной температуре. Куплено в Париже в одном из биргиковских магазинов. Выпито ещё через год в Москве.
