phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2008
This beer pours a cloudy amber body with a nice big vanilla coloured head. The one thing i noticed about this beer is how sweet it was. lots of caramel, toffee and vanilla with a floral fragrance. plenty of ripe fruit character and spice as well.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 33cl bottle from Total Wine Tampa. Pours a dark reddish-brown with a one finger white tan-head that dissipates quickly but provides lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty, syrupy, sweet with notes of pear and complex cheese and spice. Flavor is caramel, toffee, maple syrup, and candy sugar. 10% ABV is well-hidden in the malted barley. Finish is sweet and syrupy with a somewhat lingering nature. Nice trappist ale.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Golden yellow with thin white head. Aroma of fruit, banana and light alcohol. Taste of ripe brown bananas, fruit, caramel with next to no bitterness. Mild dryness with a bit of an alcohol chaser feel to it. Not bad bit a bit too one dimensional taste wise.

Dredd (841) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2008
Aroma of raisins, brown sugar prunes and a fair whack of alcohol. Pour is dark brown with a massive white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Flavour is a complex mix of dried fruit again of raisins prunes and more of that dark brown sugar and some spice that leaves a long finish with just a hint of the heat of the alcohol. It does a great job of covering up the fact that it is a 10% ABV beer. Drink with caution.

thill25 (232) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2008
11.2 oz bottle labeled Konings Hoeven Quadrupel...Poured dark amber w/ an fizzy off white head. The head stuck around for a bit then dissipated just enough to provide some fizzy lacing. The aroma of the beer was filled w/ dark fruits, but I was also able to pick out a "nutty" smell along with some molasses/brown sugar notes. The flavor was mildly complex. I could taste dark fruits, spices, toasted malts, candy sugars, and some yeast. This was a medium heavy beer w/ a substantial amount of carbonation. The palate was sticky and sweet, with a long finish. Very tasty...

mansquito (5727) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Almost without any head... what is there is bubbly and dissipates very quickly. Really nice dark amber color... but not like an amber ale... shinier. Really fruity, tart aroma. It is a pretty thick beer... actually you can tell just by looking at it. Lots of fruity tastes in there, but it isnt too sweet like some strong Belgians. Slightly sour at the finish. A little bit bitter as well. No crappy aftertaste. Must be drank very slowly.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Bottle courtesy of pepsican. Alcohol on the nose along with some sweet fruits. Amber orange body if glass held to light with white head. Medium sugar coated candy flavor the is alright with the alcohol present also. Sweetness lingers on the palate but a good sipping brew.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2008
Clay Bottle - 50 cl. Hardly to believe that this beer holds 10 percent alcohol. Light brown colour with a huge white head. The nose is dominated of plums and brown sugar. The palste is round and surprisingly mild with hints of burned malts. The finish is long-lasting

mmmbeer (1399) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 30, 2008
11.2 oz. bottle poured into trappist glass- poured semi transparent dark ruby brown, very light carbonation, creamy bubbly off white head laced nicely along the sides. Aroma of bananas, plums, green pears, and cherries. Hits the mouth with a nicely defined medium body, fruit notes come through cleanly, a brief caramel note in the middle, finish is warming and has a nice alcohol feel. Not as complex as other quads, but does a great job of making you forget about the slapnuts that are trained to say, "Austin is cool... its cool because its Austin" everyday.
