2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Small bottle. Opaque amber/orange body with a medium head. Sharp aroma of raisins and hairspray - this is not a good start. Taste is obviously dominated by alcohol because the body is so light. "Full" and "mild" would be the opposite words to describe this beer. Overly boozy taste of figs and candies. Not enjoyable to me at all - the Dubbel was thin too but at least it was reasonably balanced.
mijn vaste gast in de koelkast. Vanaf het begin dol op dit bier, vind het niet het aller beste bier, maar prijs/kwaliteit verhouding is gewoon bijzonder goed. Ik zie het als een bijna fabrieksbier met hoge kwaliteit. Knap werk. jobe977 (90) - Töreboda, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2017
Bottle at Delfzijl, Netherlands. Served in a trappist glas. Pours amber with large, white and creamy head. Aroma is roasted, spices and fruity. Great mouthfeel, both malty and sweet. Notes of alcohol in the finish but far from disturbing. Somewhat sweet aftertaste. It doesnt come much better than this. My first trappist beer and before tasting it I wondered what the fuzz is all about. Now I can conclude. It is a top notch beer! antsaluga (153) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 21, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2017 Piwo bursztynowe, klarowne z dość ładna piana, która dość szybko opada. W aromacie masa suszonych owoców, rodzynki, śliwki, brzoskwinie. Dużo słodyczy. Lekko czuc slody i nuty pochodzące od drożdży. W smaku także dużo suszonych i kandyzowanych a także świeżych owoców. Wysycenie wysokie. Piwo pełne. Lekko rozgrzewa w przełyk. Są także nuty przyprawowe. Bardzo fajny quadrupel. Cypeq (3) - - JUL 19, 2017 does not count
Reviewing bottle just around spoilage date 10/2018. Almost 3 years from bottling, Beer perfectly kept, not spoiled. Nose huge blast of fresh juice making, smell of apricots, nectarines, oranges and alcohol. Big full body and smooth slightly oily mouth feel. Profound strong brandied fruit flavors than orange zest, overripe apricots and overripe banana. Much more savory than fresh batches but keeps medium sweetness and not a hint of sourness has developed.
I can’t find any strong hop aromas and bitterness is also gone in the wind.
Least to say it’s extremely drinkable for viscous strong ale.
Amazing fresh and even better aged... it a great dessert.
My personal favorite. thomashoogendam (5) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2017 does not count
What is not to love about this quad? It really just has everything you’d expect from a good belgian ale; spice, banana, bitterness, dried fruits, burnt sugar sweetness. Mouthfeel is excellent, slightly sticky but not overly so. I could do an indepth review of every nuance, but this is one beer when I don’t want to go to deep, and simply enjoy it and experience it.

Bottle from Smak Piwa. Beer served in Goblet Glass. Pours dark ruby with small head. Aroma is plummy, cherries, grapes, marmalade, sugary. Taste is red and dark fruits, caramel, malty, after warming up alcohol is a little bit milder but still noticable. Could be better balanced maybe after some longer storage. edgarantao (1) - - JUL 12, 2017 does not count
Beautiful beer, with a very beautiful color.
Good palate and taste. Also quite strong, 10% alcohol.

From tap at the Monk. Pours beautiful clear amber brown with a fluffy off white head. Aromas of malt, spice, banana, burnt sugar. Deliciously full bodied with deep malty, yeasty, funky flavors, rasins, dates, banana. Soft carbonation, lingering finish with pleasant alcohol warmth. Outstanding. llucmaduell (262) - barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 10, 2017
Per ser una cervesa quadruple l´he trobat poc contundent, amb poc recorregut i gens complexa. No es una mala cervesa però si que està a molta distància de les gransc cerveses quadruples Aukedebier (29) - KAUTTUA, FINLAND - JUL 7, 2017
Bought at drankdozijn.nl in a 750 ml bottle with cork, kept in the basement for 5 months . Appearance; golden to amber beer with an off white head, which stays nicely. Aroma; banana, vanilla, Belgian yeast and sweet malts. Taste; wow! hard where to start.. because it is really complex. First banana and the Belgian yeast. then a warm sweetness with a bit of alcohol. After that a mild taste of herbal hops which stays on your tongue for a while. Very well balanced beer with the alcohol well hidden. The carbonation is also right in this one. This is a master piece, to my opinion. Serious beer lovers should have this one in their taste collection.
