Excellent. Aroma of carmel and molasses. Dark hazt brown with thin tan head. Taste is very complex. It is sweet with nice alcohol note. Molasses, carmel, raisinsare strong with a hint of licorice and roastiness in the finish. Holds its alcohol well. Great to sip at the end of the evening.

Drank this several times. This is my favorite beer among Trappists and my first beer that got me into love for the crafts! I still remember my surprised face when i first drink this. Pours hazy brown color, good carbonation, small white head, medium sweetness, dried fruits like raisins, plum and toasty. I will definitely go for it more often.

VueltaBirrista (88) - Murcia, SPAIN - MAR 25, 2017
Estamos ante una Cudruple potentsima en todos los sentidos. Su aspecto, su aroma y sabor y por supuesto potente tambin en cuanto a graduacin alcohlica. Vierte marrn oscura e inmediatamente llama la atencin su cantidad de espuma beis, cremosa y compacta. Si la vista es impactante, en cuanto acercas la nariz ya se te empieza a ir la cabeza fuertemente. Y con el primer trago directamente te quieres quedar a vivir en ella para siempre. No sabra muy bien por dnde empezar. Durante todo el rato que dura la copa, tienes mil sensaciones aromticas y gustativas diferentes. Caramelo, torrefactos, frutas maduras, especias, uvas pasas, chocolate uhhhhmmmmm delicioso chocolate, casi se puede masticar. Su ms de 11% de alcohol est ah, evidentemente, pero nunca te incordia en el trago. He tomado cerveza de abada con menos graduacin cuyo alcohol te macea infinitamente ms que aqu.

GoddamnNoise (104) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - MAR 24, 2017
33 cl. bottle @ Home. Aroma: not very intense aromas of toasted malts, caramel, prunes, plums, raisins, grapes, wine, toffee. Hints of alcohol, porto wine, sherry, spices. Appearance: deep brown color with low head thickness. Light beige foam made of small bubbles. Low retention. No Brussels lacing. Very dark but it seems to have a little bit of hazyness. Taste: medium-high sweetness, low-to-medium bitterness, no sourness. Flavors of toasted malts, caramel, prunes, raisins, plums, dark fruits. Alcohol not very noticeable, you know it is there because of the warming effect but it is very well hidden under a lot of layers of complex flavors. Very well balanced. Palate: medium-full body, silky texture, low carbonation, very long sweet finish of toasted malts, prunes, raisins, plums, dried dark fruits, licorice. Excellent mouthfeel. Overall: not very intense aromas but very good and intense flavors of prunes, raisins, dark fruits, toasted malts. Very long sweet finish with similar flavors. Good appearance and excellent mouthfeel. Very complex beer with a lot of different layers of flavors. Excellent beer.

JuanCC (64) - Valencia, SPAIN - MAR 24, 2017
Botella en Doemens. Vierte en color castao, con espuma de caf bastante fugaz, aunque con buena carbonatacin. De intensidad media nariz, franca y algo timida en un principio. Da notas de pasas y frutos secos, as como alguna nota floral como de azar. Tambin un punto ctrico y algo especiado. Entre las notas tostadas da caramelo suave y un agradable bombn de licor, redondeando el punto licoroso. Tambin presenta algunas notas lcticas. En boca resulta explosiva, con un dulzor como de regaliz y un amargor marcado y creciente. De gran cuerpo y textura aterciopelada, su calidez resulta muy notable. Evoluciona en boca con notas de dulce de regaliz muy intensas. Una cerveza con mucho carcter y muy potente, no recomendable probablemente para no iniciados.

Bottle. Dark amber, little bit hazy with red sparks and huge, solid, frothy head. Good lacing. Quite strong aromas of raisins, dried fruits little bit red wine and malts. Full body, high carbonation, sweet with slight spicy feeling and light alcohol warming in the aftertaste and some light, hidden bitterness. Smooth, oily mouthfeel, complex in taste and very well balanced.
