Listigovers (1058) - Toronto, Ontario, - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle at Bellwoods Brewery, $30. Well, it appears all the hype was true. This was one of the most wonderful beer drinking experiences I have ever had. The part which impressed me most was the palate, the carbonation seemed to roll from the sides of my tongue to the middle, unlike any other beer I have ever tasted. Rich winey flavours mixed with a slight amount of funky sourness. Very little bitterness, refreshing despite its heaviness, only a small alcohol burn despite the high alcohol content. Absolutely mind blowing.

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.

sjorsvdg (484) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2017
Krachtig aroma met wat hout, gist, pruimedant, abrikoos. Donkerbruine quadrupel met een zeer mooie schuimkop. In het smaakpalet komen hartige en zoete tonen voor: in het begin wat stro, hout, gist en koffie, daarna de zoetere fruitige tonen met pruim, vijg en abrikoos, gevolgd door een licht bittere afdronk van geroosterd brood en wat koffie. Uitstekend!
