Drank at La Morte Subite.... Served in a wide mouth classic trappiste style glass. Light tan head with lacing on the sides. The aroma is malt with vinous notes and fruity esters and background of caramel and dare I say Cola? Served celler temps good carbonation with good bite. Taste is candy like with some brown sugar coming through (sans mollases) Makes my cheeks pink like a swedish boy at Christmas drinking this one.... Toffee and dark fruit finish that is surprisingly dry at the end. Yeast profile really makes this beer different than other trappiste biers I have had. Also in the middle the beer exhibits a strange character that I can only describe is celery like with a cola note as mentioned before. I like it and it definately better at room temp 65-70

Bottle at Kasey’s Tavern in Chicago. Murky brown pour with chunky yeasty floaties. Sweet and alcoholic. Dried old fruit, medicinal, almost minty, earthy funky finish. I always appreciate a Trappist beer. This is no exception. Brewed with pride and care.

Arômes de caramel, cerise, grain et alcool. Robe marron foncée, mousse beige abondante. En bouche, très puissant. Sucré/caramel, acide, onctueux, pas amer. Un grand classique, mais je préfère la 8.

Off white fluffy head left a thin cover on a very effervescent dark brown body. Plum, Christmas cake, candied fruit, sugar & plum aroma. Smells very rich. Medium to full body. Minimal carbonation. full mouthfeel. Stewed fruit, berries, dark sugar, sour fruits, plum & hints of clove. Complex.

Bottle from Damian Beer and Ale. Marvelous beer. Pours hazy dark brown with creamy head. Full aroma of plums, figs, caramel. Rich taste of raisins, chocolate, plums, figs, medium sweet, bit sour. Long and pleasant finish, alcohol, sweetness. Unforgettable beer.

Argeles. Belle bière opaque aux arômes fins de cacao et de café. Fluide en bouche , belle longueur.

Damn, this one and the Bern really stand out for the widely available Belgians. Fairly complex taste, raisins, dates, figs, caramel, toffee, that kinda thing, but even a hint of sourness there. Sweet of course, as quads are, but not overly so and certainly not (as sometimes is the case w these Belgians) to cover up mediocrity in other aspects

Aromat: przepiękny, słodki, ciężki, gęsty i zawiesisty, są w nim karmel, rodzynki, suszone śliwki, figi i daktyle. Wygląd: piękna, ciemna, krwistoczerwona miedź, wysoka czapa jasnokremowej, drobnopęcherzykowej piany, utrzymująca się długo. Sporo osadu na dnie butelki. Smak: pełne, oleiste, treściwe, gęsta tekstura. Słodycz karmelu i słodkich owoców lekko skontrowana winnością świeżych owoców. Jest tu karmel, toffi, rodzynki, suszone śliwki, figi, świeże jasne owoce, winogrona, morele, jabłka. Wykwintne i dobrze ułożone, alkohol świetnie ukryty, lekko cierpkie na finiszu.. Klasyczna Belgia, ale w dobrym wykonaniu, a nawet bardzo dobrym.

330ml Bottle: Pours a hazy dark brown with red highlights and thick, persistent tan head. Dark fruit aromas with a slight alcohol note. An amazing, complex flavour as it warms. Beer is sweet, probably due to the alcohol. Flavours of caramel, toffee, prunes, dates, molasses and raisins to name but a few. Low bitterness, full bodied, medium to low carbonation. Overall an amazing beer.
