aromat: uderza mid, następnie słodkie owoce; w smaku głownie miodowa słodycz, alkohol praktycznie niewyczuwalny, wychodzi dopiero po znacznym ogrzaniu. Goryczka wyczuwalna na finishu, na niskim poziomie, wysycenie wysokie; oglnie świetnie

bonev (513) - POLAND - NOV 1, 2016
Piwo dosc klarowne ale z plywajacymi drobinkami w kolorze brazowym z niezbyt obfita szybko znikajaca piana. W aromacie rodzynki, miod, troche ziolowe z dodatkiem chlebowym i lekkim alkoholem. W smaku dosc slodkie z wysyceniem i goryczka na niskim poziomie. W smaku jest rowniez dosc bogato ale nie tak intensywnie jak bym sie spodziewal po ocenach. Sa przyprawy, belgijskie drozdze i i dojrzale banany ale nie ma dla mnie efektu "Wow". Uwazam ze ma zbyt wysokie oceny poniewaz sa inne piwa w tym stylu za nizsza cena ktore wg mnie sa naprawde lepsze niz ten Quadrupel. Ciesze sie jednak ze moglem sprobowac i sam sie o tym przekonac.

minutemat (4751) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2016
330ml bottle, fresh 6 weeks old. Dont know why Ive not rated before. Just noticed. Pours hazy reddish brown, frothy off-white head. Aroma is dark belgian yeast, treacle sweetness, grains. Taste is smooth, surprisingly light and finishes dry. Light nuances of treacle, brown sugar, leather with smooth ripened red berry and chocolate notes emerging as it warms. Lovely beer as always but, as always, it seems to lack a certain punch, finishing dryer than desired.

SebBrews (85) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - OCT 30, 2016
Dark brown-reddish with a medium frothy, bubbly, beige head. Nose: dark fruits, plums in particular, yeast esters. Raisins, cloves, cinnamon. Notes of plum brandy. Where this beer really shines is in its amazing, complex, balanced taste. It follows the aroma, but flavours are multiplied by hundred - sweetish, fermented plums, raisins, caramel, toffee, roasted grains and again cinnamon and cloves. Coffee also comes to mind. Alcoholic, but subdued presence. Full body, medium carbonation, long sweetish & spicy finish. Lives up to the hype? Absolutely!

jacobarts (138) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2016
100th. Rating - fine way to celebrate. Bottle, shared with Lena, in Utrecht, Holland. Pours a dark hazy brown with medium beige head. Aroma of raisen, sweet bread, rye bread (rugbrd), yeast, some sweet dark,dried fruits. (i think that the yeast is a bit too dominant in the aroma) I found taste better than aroma. Sweet bread, toffee, very complex taste, many layers, notes of licorice. Full bodied and goes down easy. I dig this style and this beer and also all the monk stuff. Very good beer,

nincao83 (1) - BRAZIL - OCT 26, 2016 does not count
Caramel, plum, hint of vanilla, toffee, nuts, raisin and some spices. Taste is caramel, plum, toffee, raisin. Sweet and warming aftertaste. Best Westvleteren IMHO.
