Nice...always wanted to try this Trappist. Opened up while cold and got pure bubblegum from the tulip. after letting it warm a bit the flavors got so complex as to not even be able to pinpoint. Almonds, banana, rock candy, sweet bread. Alcohol was not overwhelming. Good malt. Still trying to figure out that initial taste. Not a lot of funk. Would for sure drink again but its 50 cents more than StBerardus Abt12 which rules the roost IMHO. Buy and enjoy.

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.

Интерес& но не совсем мой стиль.

NiklasT (32) - SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2017
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 (497) - 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.

4.7
djfreeart (9) - FRANCE - JUN 4, 2017 does not count
Belle couleur ambrée avec une fine mousse. Goût de levure. Agréable en bouche sucrée et amertume légère. Quasi parfaite.

3.9
theprof (931) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2017
Bottle. Aroma fruity but raisins dates not fresh. An alcoholic pungency. Pours cloudy amber with some white bubbly lace. Taste is caramelized malts, vanilla sugars and dark fruits. Alongside this is a full bodied presence on the palate that coats the tongue and quite possibly blurs the vision. Like a brandy after a fine meal, this finishes everything. For that reason alone I am relieved not all beer is like this but I still wish more could be.
