11.2 fl oz bottle. Koningshoeven label, served in Koningshoeven glass. Poured a deep orange-brown shade. Had a very light haze. Retained a small layer of sticky tan head, very tight small bubbles. Sweet aroma, cookie-like, malty. Aroma becomes more fruity/estery as it warms up (mild banana-bread note?) Flavour revealed dark sweet malts, some alcoholic tang noticable. Lasting malty finish with some bitterness, slight dryness and alcohol warming. Superb drinkability, very smooth palate, mild carbonation, full mouthfeel. Alcohol never becomes intrustive. Rating #400.

It pours a murky deep brown amber colored body with an enormous beige creamy head. There’s a decent alcohol kick on the aroma, but also some nice yeasty and spicy notes. Taste of yeast, spices, sweet malts and slight dark fruit.

2016 330ml bottle pours deep amber with medium beige head with fine bubbles. Typical Trappist beer aromas of bread, dried fruit, sugar and alcohol. Flavours dominated by caramel malt, toffee, nuttiness, yeast, marzipan and spices. Not much bitterness, but maintains its syrupy sweet quality well into the finish. Sweeter than your average Trappist quad, but hides the alcohol nicely.

Magnifique quadruple arborant une belle robe orange. Puissante et goûteuse elle est une vraie perle. Un must have pour chaque amateur de bonne bière.

Copper to light brow colour, average sized head. Malty and spicy aroma, hops is also noticable. Heavy malty taste and pretty sweet. Alcohol harshness is not there but it delivers warming sensation. Average carbonation, long sweet finish.

Slightly hazy amber. Sweet, caramel aroma. Quite high carbonation with a slightly burned, fruity sweet taste. Well balanced with bitterness at the end. One of the best quads.

Rødbrun farge med hvitt luftig skum. Lukter av belgisk gjær, alkohol. Medium fylde. Dette var en god øl..

Evolutionary (498) - Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2017
Bottle from Andersons. Nose is plum and smoky dark esters. Super smooth and sweeter side of a quad. Weak carbonation. Complex with malts and dark sugars and bitterness hidden. Smooth and a solid beer. Would do again. Top 5 quads.
