kevd193213 (992) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 25, 2009
Bottle. Dark cloudy brown pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of raisins, caramel and Belgian yeast. Taste of roasted malt, raisins and other dark fruit, and sticky sugar. Full body hides the alcohol.

eManu (557) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 24, 2009
Pours a amber red color with a nice tan head. Strong aromas of dark fruits, of plums and raisans with caramel and spices. Flavors of sweet roasted malts, dry fruits, pears and raisans with spices. There is something else I really cannot tell in the taste. The feel of alcohol is present, with a sweet and bitter dry and creamy finish. This beer is great and full of flavors, but still far from the other Trappist beers.

rakkasan (142) - Bresso, ITALY - OCT 21, 2009
bottle - Chiaravalle monastery Milan. Dark amber color, creamy head. Olfactory explosion of plum, brown sugar and lightly spiced alcohol. Full-bodied Caramel, spiced plum and buttered raisin bread flavor, can taste the alcohol a tad bit more than other beers of this style. YUM!!

can8ianben (1602) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2009
Massive and bold. Sweet and alcoholic. Darker in color with plums, apples, brown sugar, Christmas spice, etc. A really full bodied chewy beer. Nice.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8291) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Labeled as Konigshoeven Quad so this may have been an older bottle. This beer poured a dark orange-brown color with a huge orange-khaki head. The aroma was sugar, ripe fruits, caramel and had a touch of alcohol showing through. The flavor was sweet caramel, toffee, cocoa, candied pears/apricots and ginger. Alcohol again showed through a bit. The finish was long with notes of fruit and caramel. The body was thick and full. Complex, full, deep and rich. Excellent.

mcdav2154 (448) - GERMANY - OCT 8, 2009
Darker brown cloudy body with a cream colored head. Great lacing. Aroma is very flowery with some raspberry, yeast, and caramel. Taste is full of flavor and thick with raisins, vanilla, and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy with carbonation. What a great beer!! I love this one and will go back to get more very soon!

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2009
This is the last Trappist brewery I have yet to try, until right now. 750ml corked and caged bottle under the Konings hoeven label. Pours a dark red/orange with a large gray head. The aroma seeps out of my Trappist glass and slowly fills the room. Plums, raisins, figs, black licorice, white vanilla flavored cake, toffee, wet hay, and cherry on the nose. The flavor is pleasantly complex. Initial sweetness of plums, raisins, figs, apple, and vanilla. Then a slight tart cherry flavor. Followed by a surprisingly bitter finish (for a Trappist any way). This truly is a great beer.

4.1
CEZ (420) - Milano, ITALY - OCT 7, 2009
Huge head. Deep orange, slightly murky, yet inviting. Aroma is sweet bread, dark fruit. Obviously sweet but reasonably balanced. Fruity up front with a hint of banana, then raisins; finish is bitter licorice, pleasant and lasting. Smooth mouthfeel and delicate taste. Low spiciness but decent depth nonetheless. 10% alcohol adds warmth without spoiling the flavours. A very drinkable, gentle, if not too subtle or complex specimen of the genre.

3.7
BoBoChamp (5754) - Gent, BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2011 33cl, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex brew, yet heavy, balanced, hazy, good head, very good Trappist
