Bottle. An overall solid Quadruple ale. It’s dark amber/orange in color with a typical light brown foamy head. Smells of dark fruit, caramel, sweet malts, yeast, and alcohol. Flavor is sweet with milt bitterness. Very smooth and medium to full bodied. A very enjoyable brew. 12many (277) - Alaska, USA - JUN 29, 2008
Dark amber pour. Malt with dark fruits on the nose. Very sweet with some mild bittterness at the end. Very smooth but that is expect with most belgian style ales. Nice beer, very warming and extremely enjoyable. Would love to drink again when I am sober. eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 28, 2008

Bottle. A quad to rap your head around. A very smooth talker indeed. High octane and full of life, this quadruple will succeed with age. Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2008
Orange color with a small foam. Aroma shows a touch of bubble gum and light fruits. Powerful flavors of raisins, rum soaked dark fruits, honey, doughy, pastry-like malts, with lots of belgian character. Very boozy, but well balaced and fairly complex. Hmm, nice tasting, but the aroma and appearence leave a lot to be desired. This is a fresh batch and not my favorite. The last batch I sold (which I have several bottles aging) was amazing. This is a nice beer, but not a batch I’ll be collecting. EHSRanders (2052) - Tjele, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2008
Bottle. Hazy amber colour with medium creamy off-white mostly lasting head. Fruity aroma with yeasty notes. Sweet fruity flavor. trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 23, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2008 On tap at Brouwer’s. Dark reddish brown color with a great head typical of a quad. Aroma is nearly identical to Rochefort 10 - sweet grapes, black cherries, port wine and dates, with Belgian yeast. Flavor is also similar to the Rochefort, bringing sweet malts into the aroma’s notes and accentuating the grapes. Absolutely delicious - though it doesn’t have quite the same fullness that the Rochefort has. Still, a wonderful beer, and a testament to the trappist breweries.
