onystrom (1333) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, - APR 13, 2006
Dark amber/brown color with great head. Powerfull flavor sweet and with a strong alcoholic aftertaste. Its very strong and I actually liked it better at a low temperature.

Bottle. It pours dark brown with a light head. Quite a looker. Aromas of sweet dark fruits - raisins, dates etc., caster sugar and some spices. Taste is sweet and caramel like. The dark fruits are present in the taste as well. Some alcohol, but very drinkable.

Bire trappiste trs fonce, avec beaucoup de mousse mais qui redescend assez rapidement. Une odeur trs fume, un peu mtallique, assez ptillante, un got de fum, on reconnat bien le houblon propre la trappiste de rochefort, mais ce got ne reste pas, il laisse place un palais assez doux qui fait apprcier la trappiste

tanel025 (16) - ESTONIA - JAN 13, 2017
Aroma is fruity and surprisingly light for such a strong beer. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter, caramel, raisins. Very unique and strong aftertaste. Alcohol very well hidden. Excellent beer, but not easily drinkable. I would prefer no 8, but this is also very good.

Aromas of bread, banana, citrus and spices. Pours a dark brown with small off white head. Tastes of banana and wood with a smooth fizzy finish. Exceptional beer.

Kogrimarmar (1) - Lille, FRANCE - JAN 9, 2017 does not count
A very strong beer, extremely full of tastes, sweet, bitter, caramel, dark, but with a huge depth. A spectacular beer, that cant be taken twice in the same day.

buki (51) - Otwock, POLAND - JAN 4, 2017
Po otwarciu butelki po pokoju rozlewa się intensywny i przyjemny słodki zapach szlachetnego alkoholu, przyznaję bardzo przyjemny :)
Kolor bardzo ciemny brązowy, nieprzejrzysty, prawieże czarny
Nalewa się oleiście, piana wzbija się wysoka i gęsta, opada względnie powoli (jak na taką zawartość alkoholu) i ładnie oblepia kieliszek, wizualnie bardzo dobrze
Zapach, jak wspomniałem, bardzo intensywny: dosyć złożony - nuty alkoholu, toffi, karmelu i nut belgijskich.
W smaku jednak już nie jest tak dobrze - odczucie na podniebieiu jest dosyć przeszkadzające - piwo jest wysoko nagazowane prawieże jak szampan. jest dosyć oleiście, silnie wyczuwalna słodowość. W smaku dominuje karmel, coca cola (nie potrafię nie mieć takiego skojrzenia :), trochę korzenia, praliny, belgijska czekolada i rodzynki. Smak jest dosyć złożony i poukładany, alkohol jest wyczuwalny (11% robi swoje) i na mj gust niedostatecznie ukryty.
Finisz wytrwany, smaki zostają w przełyku.
Piwo bardzo przyjemne, na kolano mnie nie rzuciło ale na jedno przyklękłem :), z pewnością miłe wprowadzenie do belgw :)

From 33cl bottle. Second time Ive tried it, and I might never understand all the fuss about quadrupel beers. Sure, its nice. The aroma is good (raisins, caramel, prunes...) but not so strong or outstanding. The appearance is not particularly enticing. The taste is good, sure, but I tend to prefer bitterness over sweetness, so not my cup of tea. Its also excessively carbonated, at least the high alcohol volume is quite tolerable. Pairing it with with strong smoked cheese & crackers with pumpkin and orange confiture was an excellent choice, thats the most positive thing I can say about it. Again, I wont say its a bad beer, I just dont understand why its ranked so high.
