Bottle, 12.0%. Mild bready aroma, hint of peppery alcohol. Hazy dark amber colour. Small stable tan head. The flavour starts off very sweet, even sugary. Has a little spicy malt notes and some alcohol. It has the same good breadiness as Westvleteren 12. A great beer but it is very sweet and, I must say, too sweet for me.

Bottle. Pours hazy copper brown with airy but stable beige head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel, fruit and yeast, with subtle, hoppy touches. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, with notes of fruit, touches of raisins and yeast and hints of hops. Lingering, sweetish aftertaste with nutty notes. Warming alcohol presence. The closest to Westvleteren XII I have tasted, just sweeter. Yummy. Oh, how I wish I was in the beautiful nowhere of rural Flanders again... Bierridder_S (1153) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2015

Bottle from Kris Wines. Hazy copper, offwhite head. Sweet raisins and nutty aromas. On the sweet side, but with lots of fruity complexity. Nice. spacecube (1810) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2015
330ml bottle, pours red, small off white head. Aroma is golden apple tang, cherries, carrot cake, toffee, blackcurrant, medium malty, light hop bitterness, almond and nutty notes, resiny. Body is medium full, texture is oily and syrupy, sweet with little hop bitterness. The flavours carry this. Drinks very smoothly, alcohol is blended very well. A complex and tasty brew.

Grandma fruit jam and sweet golden raisins. Too sweet, but could be more complex and with no "extra" bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2015

Licht troebel bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is krachtig, licht zuur fruitig, bessen en perzik, echter niet zoet. Smaak wijkt af van meeste quadrupels. Marduk (8622) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 4, 2015
