Smells like a fine bourbon. Woody dried fruit with deep but very subtle hop finish. Every sip is worth it. One of the most balanced quads I’ll ever get to enjoy.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2018 Mörkt brun, lite disig. Söt malt med rostad mandel i doften. Dadlar, fikon o melass i den komplexa smaken. Låååång o härlig, fantastisk balans mellan sötma o bitterhet. Fantastik mörk öl men flera andra av samma typ är på samma nivå, trots mytologin kring just denna.

Lives up to all of the hype. The best part of this beer.....my sister and brother-in-law fly to Belgium every other month to bring some home to the U.S. Best beer in the world, even better when it's FREE. In all seriousness, fantastic brew. excellent aroma, appearance, taste, and stays on the palate with a very smooth and enjoyable sustain.

Bought a six pack from a internetsite and collect it myself. Incl glass. Not cheap but great buy as is the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

After few attempts at various places, I was bale to get this one at the Vineyards. Serious beer, quite enjoyable to savour in good company with good food to reminisce for old time's sake.

Pours a deep ruby with a caramel head. Aroma is caramel, cinder toffee, boozy currents and plums. Wow what a depth of flavour. Boozy currents, Christmas cake, plums and stone fruits, Belgian yeast, bubblegum. It keeps going. Each sip something new. Maybe my fav beer I've had.

Rated the best beer in the world and brewed by Belgium monks, I’ll admit I was nervous to pop the top off this one. What if it didn’t live up to the hype? On first sip a beautiful combination of sweet biscuit malts, toffee sweetness and warming alcohol splashed around my mouth and paved a warming sensation down my throat into my soul. From the first sip alone I get why it’s considered number one in the craft beer world. A beautifully crafted strong ale that will have you questioning your believes, donning the brown robes of the Trappist monks and singing choral hymns before the glass is empty.

Thick creamy beige head stayed well on a very dark brown still body. Huge aroma of dark berries, demerara & dark spirits. Medium bodied, with a thick & creamy mouth feel, soft on the front with a sharp tingle over the tongue. Rich tastes of malt, brown sugar, dark spirits, spices, sweet orange hints and a slightly bitter tangy finish.

The best I have ever had. Just right in all aspects. Slightly caramel aroma but amazingly perfect.
