Good grief... This beer was enough to make me want to finally sign up for this site if that means anything. As good as sex... Aroma: Very deep, chocolaty, malty heavy smell. A hint of fruitiness but not very much. Appearance: A dark but ever so slightly opaque look... caramel and chocolate look for sure with about 55% light transfer. Taste: One word... WOW. As i said this beer is what made me sign up on this site... i feel i need to tell the whole world! It is a heavy COMPLEX burst of tasty flavors. I cannot describe it; just try it yourself. Redefines a quad for sure. Palate: Easy to drink with very little taste of the potent 11.3% ABV that is in there. It flows and fizzes like it was made specifically for me. Overall: The best beer i have had yet... i will be blown away if i come across another that is better/more enjoyable than this brew. You NEED to try this one for sure.

medium aroma - outdated malt, some nuances of aged wine, caramel, fermented black fruits, rum and some cognac notes, all covered with something outdated, stale (like a cheese with mold). medium taste - alcoholic strength, a bit burning, in foreground, malt, well fermented fruits, slightly burnt sugars sweetness, some soft cheese with mold, a bit of belgian yeasts. a good belgian beer with a lot of alcohol.

Lekkere frisse neus met abrikoos en noten. Smaak is mooi vol en rond met vijgen, rozijnen, banaan en pruim. Mooie zachte afdronk.

17/20 lovely Trappist beer. So powerful both in taste and alcohol %. Red cheeks by the end of the bottle. Taste of raisin and dates, slight alcohol burn. Maybe just a bit too powerful for me. I'll have to try 6 and 8 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle poured into a snifter showing caramel brown with two fingers of tanned foam. The nose shows a lovely sweet Belgian yeast forwardness with hints of raisins, toffee, and caramel. The palate is highly carbonated and light to slightly medium bodied. Flavors of black currant, plum, and very light hints of raisin. Surprisingly dry with barely any sweetness but still fruit forward. Strong alcoholic spiciness but does not subtract as it appears on the aftertaste and lasts for a short to medium finish. I cant wait to try this aged.

Aroma caramel malts and warm alcohol. Taste the same with slight hints of dark fruits. Mouthfeel thick, carbonation rather high. Not complex but very nice on a cold winter evening.

A light aroma of plums and dried fruit. Pours a cloudy brown color with a lasting foamy tan head. A full bodied viscous mouth feel. Tastes of plum and raisins with a hint of berries. A lasting plum and alcohol finish.

javiercrasher (323) - Granada, SPAIN - NOV 13, 2016
Color marrn con algn destello rojizo. Rotunda presencia: buena capa de espuma de fina burbuja y buena retencin, deja encaje en la copa. En nariz bizcocho, azcar moreno, fruta madura. Bastante carbonatada. En boca compleja: ciruelas pasas, frutos secos, algo de caramelo, bastante bizcocho. Calidez alcohlica, aunque el alcohol esta muy bien integrado los 11% tienen que notarse a la fuerza.. BB 2020-09-08

33 cl bottle @ home. Dark brown beer with brown head. Sweet, malty aroma of caramel, raisins, coffee. Taste is similar, tastes like it is aged in whiskey barrels. Not my cup of tea.
