Zilverenmaan (274) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2017
Aroma: plums, red currant, malts, warming alcohol. Taste the same but stronger. Mouthfeel creamy, alcohol warming, a little too strong for me but not disturbing. Very rich, yet balanced and enjoyable quad.

Rather closed Aroma compared with the full flavored taste. Taste is prunes, tad nuts, very nice yeast, a tad bread. Nice oxidation. Rather much carbonation. Palate is fizzy, because of the carbonation. More complex in the aftertaste: prunes, a little leather, milk chocolate.

Tag ikke fejl, dette er bare noget af det vildeste. Det kan siges med få ord "Fuck det er godt" Det er en meget hypet øl, den lever op til det hele. Hvis vi kunne drikke dette resten af vores liv, ville vi dø lykkelige. Det er satme i orden med super på!

Berlin, Muted Horn, butelka. Ar: swietny ciemny slod, ziarnistosc, mocno orkiszowy, slodko bardzo, super dusza slodowa, sladowe szlachetne alko, intensywnosc srednio-wysoka. Swietnie, najciekawszy balans slodowosci jaki czulem, ta belgia i orkisz, bosko. Wyg: koniakowy, brazo-zloto, piana cienka, redukuje sie do ringu. Sm: swietne, bardzo slodowe, lekka palonosc, belgia, mocna orkiszowosc, soczyste, mocna ciekawa dusza quadra, wysycenie wysokie, super jest ta slodowosc, to nie moj styl, ale jest zajebiscie. Pos: cudowny slod, orkisz, belgia, sladowe szlachetne alko. Ov: genialne, cudowne w swej subtelnosci.

Dark and opaque body with fruit aroma just like citrus clearly, medium head in the glass, very balanced in mouth. Anyway, complex by bitter and sweet taste as the temperature rising. It's really perfect, but too expensive maybe it costs in China.

Mishnok (401) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2017
Scores high from me on taste. Velvety quadrupel with dark dried fruit, prune and spice. No bitter edges, but I thought the extra alcohol compared to the 8 Extra was a bit overkill. Great beer, but prefer the 8. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aged for 6 years, amazing taste/flavor, cross between both rochefort 10 and st. bernardus abt 12, but with a very smooth finish.

4.7
JaKeAFC (1283) - ITALY - AUG 24, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2017 Glass at in de vrede. Dark opaque brown, big bubbly offwhite-beige head, fizzy, persistent. Aroma is explosive, lots of caramel, candy sugar, cookies, red berries, apricot, banana, malty with a lot of spices, almond, balsamic herbs, well hopped, some trademark yeast. Taste mild sweet, full, harmonious yet crisp and punchy, alcohol cannot be unnoticeable at this level, it matches up as a good red wine. Body is full while carbonation strong and maybe too much (but i didn’t pour myself sui i could not let it breathe), fairy dry. Fluffy foamy and creamy texture. Finish is long, syrupy, candy, yeasty, smooth light dry. This is really serious and sacre stuff, strong, powerful, tasty "as hell". Switch to meditation mode, no sirprise you can meet God with this one. One extra point for deserved hype and location.

My first experience with Trappist Brews normally prefer Weizens. Great experience getting totally surprised by the sweet and creamy taste that didn’t leave a bitter finish. Truly enjoyed its texture and thickness.
