caribou43 (902) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 27, 2016
I bought this beer at Amstein. I drank yesterday, relax after a heavy day of job. In my point of view, it is a good trappist, strong and you feel the degree of alcohol, you dont need to drink thousends of this beer to become drunk. Like an imperial stout, it is the kind of beer that you drink with a good book like "lassomoir de Zola", when the weather is bad outside. The body is a powerful brown color, brown and white foam. The carbonation is low but it is normal for the style. The taste is delicious, malt, cloves, ginger bread, plum and apricot, hop but hidden by this really sweet side. It is a bit like a syrup.

Zarrach76 (212) - Grenoble, FRANCE - SEP 25, 2016
Bire brune trs trouble, moyennement huileuse, avec une mousse fine au collet lger. Au nez, on retrouve le caf, le chocolat, le caramel, la noisette, les crales chaudes, le pain dpice et mme une odeur de fruits rouges (fraise, framboise, cassis) et de fruits secs (datte, figue, banane) fort agrable. Un arme vraiment riche, souple et ample o lamertume du houblon est absente. En bouche, des houblons se font sentir ds la premire seconde avec une attaque franche, le sucre est lger, lalcool prsent sans simposer, et on retrouve ce got de grains torrfis (caf, chocolat, crales...) fort agrable. La carbonatation est moyenne. Lamertume est trs prsente sur la finale. Le got est franc, moins complexe que le nez, avec une longueur moyenne. On aurait aim un peu plus de corps et damplitude. Reste un got fum sur un arrire plan houblonn. Une bonne quad qui satisfera les amateurs, mme si la bouche mriterait dtre un peu plus travaille. Un trs bon produit cependant. Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

Grumbo (2433) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle from www.slijterijhetfust.nl and split at the EU themed 2nd Ipswich bottle share. Pours a deep dark red/brown colour with a medium sized beige colour head. Aroma is fruity, caramel, quite sweet, with alcohol and spiced notes. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Medium body, surprisingly thin though, average carbonation. Finish is dry with lingering alcohol edge.

dnstone (3016) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Dark brown with a soft off-white. Roasty malty sweet with hints of burnt bread crust and a touch of alcohol and a soft texture. More breadiness than other quads. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trapped (2853) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 11, 2016
Bottle. Murky brown with small foamy beige head, berry and caramel aroma, high carbonation, caramel taste with alcohol undertones and dark berries, thin body, long caramel-berry finish. Very satisfying, better than Ive expected.

ljthiessen (1257) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 9, 2016
Bottle. Murky (and chunky!) chocolate brown pour with a tan head, good lacing. Aroma is cherry, raisin, plum, vanilla, very slightly boozy. Taste is raisin, leather, subtle licorice and chocolate, a little woody, rich and nicely balanced.

hauxe (624) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2016
From Austrias only Trappist brewery. Pours cacao brown from the bottle and leaves a tan head that fizzes and dissipates. Impenetrable. No evident lacing. Aroma is a heady concoction of rich caramel, honey, chocolate, and cognac. A good start. The taste fails to follow through at the same level. Warm, alcoholic, again cognac, but also raw alcohol set atop chocolate and caramel. Not a bad beer but not the same complexity of some of the better Trappist beers Ive tasted. It certainly fails to disguise the 10.2 ABV nearly as well. Finishes bitter with alcoholic notes. Heavy bodied. Good. Not great.
