UPDATED: NOV 23, 2017 Dit bier is een genot. Na het inschenken verdwijnt de schuimkraag redelijk snel. Het zicht is mooi, lekker rood/bruin. De geur is zoet wat hints van banaan en vanille. De smaak is zoet, fruit en misschien ook wel wat kruidnagel. Het is in elk geval een heerlijk bier voor koude en regenachtige dagen. Absoluut een vaste gast in mijn koelkast als het kouder wordt. Echt een genot. Fullpintofbeer (443) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2017
Tap @Strawberry Thief, Bristol.
Medium head, dark amber colour, fair lacing. Aroma: bit of citrus, bit roasted malts, raisins, oak barrel. Bitter taste, full body, long finish, lively. Fantastic, very well balanced. eRock_2013 (511) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 17, 2017
Wow, this was simply a phenomenal beer, a supremely well-executed and decadent quad. Special thanks to my wife for supplying this anniversary gift! Upon opening, this one at first foamed up and out the bottle, fortunately didn't lose too much, and it was a reminder of the authentic bottle conditioning. Poured into my personal favorite Spencer Trappist chalice, this beer indeed featured a truly "stunning" golden amber color with a vibrant plume of lacing supporting a thick creamy white foamy head, flawless appearance! A bit of debris from the yeast, but gives it a more organic look and feel. Aroma is yeasty candied sugar and some slightly toasted or burnt caramel malt, with some brown sugar and booze. Flavor is a gourmet palate of yeasty esters, vanilla, caramel, cognac, and raisin. Interestingly the esters are less bubblegummy than other Belgians and more of a candied sugar accent. Exceptionally creamy texture, medium bodied, and smooth, although the booziness is impossible to hide. My first brew from the La Trappe monastery, will be sure to seek out their other varieties!

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2017 This 750 ml bottle came from Spec’s in Houston and brought home for a try many months after purchase. Wonder how I waited so long. Quads generally do not lay around here unopened. The cork is popped on the front porch on a pleasant Friday afternoon. Tilting the bottle into my Rochefort Trappistes glass it comes out a lighter than expected ruby-amber body followed by an egg-brown head. Through the glass I see a very active carbonation replenishing the top. I take a smell. Plum, peach, yeast, a bit floral. A nice intro. A drink now, geez, worth the wait. Currant, black plum, biscuit, strawberry jam. An early bitterness that continues. Really, really fine. A fuller favor than the color indicates but sorta creamy with that great foam. Definitely will see this one again.
