Wow. Absolutely amazing, pours a rusty brown with minimal head. Aromas of oak and wine are noticeable immediately. Lots of malt, yeast, and brown sugar too. Just so much going on. So complex. Minimal carbonation. My only complaint is the price: 20 dollars a bottle. I would venture to say it is worth it though. So great, if you can find it try it you wont be sorry. patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Bottle. 12.7 oz. Split with and courtesy of Vinnie. Pours a deep, rosy red chestnut brown with a thin, wispy, frothy beige head. Lacing is spotty and arched, trailing down the glass. Aroma of honey, vanilla, oak, subtle sweet bourbon notes, caramel, dark grapes and figs, cinnamon, apple, and some insanely creamy, milky notes in the back. Full bodied with a bit of booze in it, but the palate, with its firm, yet supple, spicy, and crispy backbone holds it up well. Flavors of rum raisin, plums, candied sugars, vanilla, raisins, and some musty notes. Finishes with some bready, sugary booze burn. Holy fuck, this is an outstanding Quad. The oak and the beer have made a glorious love child. DRINK IT NOW. Aml42000 (625) - Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Wow- just wow. Cloudy mahogany with a disappaiting white head. The oak is in front on both the nose and palate, playing brilliantly off the caramel malts, and spice cabinet in the mouth. Long, woody finish. 77ships (11002) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2012
Another one of these yummy concoctions // 375 ml. bottle split by 3 @ Kulminator // 2011 bottle // bright copper, tad brown, darker than usual & def much more touch of white head than usual // smells of very sweet caramel, toffee, sugar on this appears to be exotic, I am almost getting exotic fruits here, touch booze, very sweet wine, others get rice pudding. I sort of get that, especially the spices they use in that // taste is similar sweet caramel, toffee, exotic fruits, rice pudding, very sweet wine, small touch of wood, rice pudding spices, exotic sugar // slick, smooth // delicious as usual LordTde (1) - - JUL 11, 2012 does not count
Good taste, just strong enough. Nice glass, but take care when drinking... A must drink.

Cork and caged 37.5cl bottle: Given to me (like 6 other Batches), as a gift by Rudi from De Bierboom in Brugge, thanks Rudi.
Poured into a Westmalle chalice and a Palm bulb for the sediment on 31 Oct 2012.
Dark brown with red leanings, the head a thin wisp from the start, clear and clean, the Palm glass holding a murkier duller brew.
The aroma and taste are fantastic: Port, liquorice, red berries, slightly sour, yet full in your face flavours to counter-act the sourness (chocolate malts mostly). Rich, warming and very, very nice.
This is one very drinkable brew: I like! Jerre (3823) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2011
Taste this bottle, 37,5 cl with Vic and William, 21.07.2011 @ proeflokaal La Trappe.
Dark brown color with a little beige head. Great aroma grapes, raisins, dry dark fruits, malts and oak.
Medium to full body.
Taste like wine, is also great: dark dry fruits, malts with sweet touch and tannins little sourness. Dry aftertaste. Very Good !
