Pour cette dernire bire labore par labbaye Notre-Dame de Koningshoeven en 1991, les moines trappistes se sont laisss emports par une vritable envole lyrique! Cest une relle chevauche des Walkiries qui envahit le palais lors de cette dgustation. Notre pure sang est dun bel ambr, limpide, et surmont dune splendide mousse blanc crme dun cm dpaisseur, onctueuse. Le nez est rac, la base se porte sur les crales avec des notes citrones et de coriandre mais les armes liquoreux viennent le renforcer et lui donner une belle consistance. A la dgustation, la galop est tout de suite donn. Lattaque, pice, sur les crales et le caramel est puissante voire imposante. Lamertume apparat alors, dune intensit et corpulence exceptionnelle. Telles les notes dun opra de Wagner envahssant lespace, les armes surgissent et vous prennent le palais. Les armes sont ports vers le cointreau, la girofle avec une prsence de lalcool marque, souhaite, trs bien matrise et lui confrant un ct liquoreux (sans tre pour autant de trop sucr). Le final, trs long laisse une place un peu plus marque aux pices. En conclusion, la Trappe Quadruple est une bire excptionnelle. Lintensit de ses armes, sa longueur en bouche trs longue et son ct liquoreux marqu en font une bire de dgustation mais qui par ses spcificits pourra dplaire certains. Pour ma part, les moines auront russi lever ma spiritualit. Leur art, dune matrise sans faille, vaut allgrement la note maximale.

midovark (700) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - OCT 15, 2016
0.33 l bottle. Pours copper color with a long lasting, foamy white head. Strong dried fruits notes both in aroma and taste, with roasted malts, burnt sugar, nutty and alcohol overtones. Pleasant sweet aftertaste, very soft carbonation, and not overwhelmingly heavy body with surpringly well hidden ABV. Well balanced, complex brew.

Pours copper bronze. Aroma full of banana, caramel and vanilla. When you taste it the banana sweetness is balanced with darker tones of roasted malt. Aftertaste left in the mouth is like resinous licorice. So far, this is my favourite trappist.

Jimbo2 (276) - DENMARK - OCT 12, 2016
Very good, if somewhat distanced by the really amazing beers in its category. Esters and dried fruit, good amount of boozeyness and too much carbonation for my taste in a quad.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2016 Bottle. Color: Clear copper golden, dense white head. Taste: Nice complex mix of spices, hints of caramel, yeast, fruit (plums, bananas, apples), malt and alcohol. Full body. Medium carbonation. Mildly bitter spicy finish. Great quadrupel.

Bulk_Carrier (4534) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - OCT 3, 2016
This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a golden burnt orange ruddy brown color. Thick foamy white head that dissipates nice and even and then messy stringy lacing. The aroma takes in crisp sweet Belgian sugars, plums, raisins, mild sweet Belgian yeasty/bready, subtle vanilla, creamy almonds. The flavor takes in a nice blend of the sweetness to the spices. Lingering sweet bready/sweet to spicy aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body, surprisingly a bit more sessionable than I thought. Carbonation feels good. ABV barely reveals itself, wow, damn well hidden. Overall, damn fine quad, I would love to have again this time of the year.

Nenomen (4) - BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2016 does not count
Overtuigend zoete geur, gevolgd door een even duidelijke volle smaak waarin zeker de banaan duidelijk naar voor komt. Zeer zachte afdronk met heel subtiele bitterheid. Topbiertje! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grumbo (2091) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2016
Bottle from slijterijhetfust.nl. Pours auburn brown with an initially large beige colour head. Aroma of malt, toffee, chocolate, banana, dark fruit, and light spice. Fairly heavy sweetness, mild bitterness, touch of sour. Medium/heavy body, sticky texture, soft carbonation. Finishes with alcohol edge, warming, with lasting sweetness and sour edge. Lovely.
