Quick3Beers (1060) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Pours a dark brown with an off-white head from a bottle. Nose is of sherry, a little sourness, like a plum past its prime or something. Bready. Flavor is a syrupy cherry coke, with a bit of alcohol burn. Good beer.

DerGantzel (382) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2016
Aroma of fruits and malt with notes of caramel. Dark brown liquid with a fine white head. Medium-high sweetness and light-medium bitterness. The taste doesnt last that long for this ale. Average lively carbonation, medium-full body and creamy texture.

Adamsville (261) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
Apparence : Brun fonc, reflets rouges vifs, semi-opaque, beau col beige, petite dentelle. Nez : Caramel, alcool, lgres pices (moins prsentes que dautres Unibroue), lger bois, fruits rouges et ses tannins de type raisins rouges, fruits schs (pruneaux, dattes, figues). Got : Pain grill, minral (!?), sucre, lgre amertume. Bonne intensit. Ce nest quen faisant rouler que lon dnote les petits cts fruits et boiss. S : Effervescence plutt faible, corps moyen, lgre chaleur dalcool, longueur moyenne-plus du ct malt. Bref : Trs, voire trop facile boire. Le corps est tout de mme dcevant pour une Abt. Ct minral surprenant et pas dans le bon sens. O sont cachs les fruits que lon retrouve quand mme au nez? O est cette intensit rconfortante que lon retrouve dans dautres quadruples? Le travail de la levure aurait pu tre suprieur. Pour moi, on nest pas dans la cours des grandes Quadrupels.

Difficile dire, elle est dautant bonne que sa lgende! Dans sa noirceur se cache des armes de caf et de chocolat. Bien quilibr dans lensemble, 9% dalcool. Sait plaire aux amateurs de stout comme moi :)

kingaugusta (260) - Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Pours caramel brown with a big tan head. Nose is sharp fruit esters and belgian candy with a bit of booze and bread. Flavor is a rich Belgian smorgasbord of yeasts, dark fruit, sugars, and warm malts. Finish is sweet and sticky. Excellent beer.

VDuquerroux (1408) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle, 341mL. Home. 12-14C tasting. A dark brown opaque beer with a big off-white foamy head ; good retention. Roast, licorice, cinnamon, fruits (red berries, blackberry), light herb, alcohol, light coffee. Medium sweet, round, light dry, warming atmosphere. Full body, average texture, average carbonation, spicy lasting warming finish. Overall, a good strong belgian ale ; sweet, spicy, maybe too strong. I didnt drink this beer for 7-8 years now ! I was so happy to drink this one ; nevertheless, slightly disappointed by my memories.

cmacklin (979) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2016
750ml bottle. Pours an unclear, dark reddish brown with a medium, creamy, long lasting, beige head that laces. Sweet aroma of overripe fruit, cinnamon, roasted malt and yeast. Sweet flavour of dark fruit, roasted malt, cinnamon, vanilla and yeast with warming alcohol in a dry, almost wine-like finish. Medium to full body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A world class Trappist-style ale.

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Reviewed March 22, 2014. A: Pours a dark ruby color with some impressive carbonation. The head is two fingers high, and off-white in shade. Texture wise, it looks extremely fizzy (like soda) and has very poor retention. No lacing is left behind. S: Wow, this is really spicy. While the yeast dominates, the subtle notes of chocolate and brown sugar help give it some depth. The more it warms up, the more I notice its impressive dark fruit notes, and the more I like it. Nitpick: the yeastiness could be toned down slightly. T: It starts off very fruity - mostly dark fruits, but there are hints of cherries as well. Bready, spicy yeast builds up slightly in the middle before a caramel and chocolate finish. While a bit simple, its also very pleasant and easy to enjoy. Actually, I shouldnt call it simple: pour in the dregs, and this becomes a richer, more complex offering, varying some of the malt and ester notes beyond caramel and dark fruits, respectively. M: Holy frig, this is drinkable and light. Not only that, its surprisingly clean, without a hint of the 9% coming through. The dry finish and healthy carbonation means one could be inclined to chug this - but why would you want to? With the dregs, the body becomes fuller, the cleanliness goes away, and the finish becomes a little sweeter. O: A lot of people seem to dislike Unibroues yeast profile - Im not one of them. As always from Unibroue, the alcohol is concealed marvelously, without sacrificing anything in the way of richness or depth. Thank cripes this is very readily available, because Ill definitely drink this again.
