Had a 2011 vintage bottle that was kept a little too cold so while I thoroughly enjoyed this beer I wish I could've had a bottle that was stored at proper temp (oh well). Dark brown, syrupy like pour with little tan head that dies quick on top of a very yeasty, citrusy and candi-sugar like aroma. Definite sweetness packed with that typical Belgian orange-like yeast strain as well as some pepper and sharp spices and touches of dark fruit (my wife detected sour fruit but can't say I picked it up). Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, a little thick and sticky, not that much though, and the taste is similiar to the nose although I do detect a sticky, syrupy licorice type sweetness. Good amount of fruits like touches of citric fruits and dark fruits (figs being number one, maybe raisins) along with great balance from sturdy malt backbone and the ABV gives off a complentary edge to the finish and helps mellow out, but not kill, the beer as it warms. Great sipper and a definite must try.

Can't believe I have held on to this and a 2005 Pannepot Reserva for 2 years!! Great beer, worthy of the ratings it receives.

Poured into my Chimay goblet, dark brown color with only the slightest bit of light coming through. Small dark tan head with average (for a Quad) retention and no lacing.

I picked up the aroma as I was opening the bottle. Strong rich smell. Dark fruit....figs raisins and plums, with some spices...black pepper, nutmeg, a little cinnamon.

Taste is outstanding. Dark fruit, candi sugar sweetness, the same spices as detected in the aroma. They are all expertly blended, with the sweetness taking a back seat to the rich fruity, malty presence.

Mouthfeel is very rich and smooth. THe 10% abv is noticible only by a warming presence. There is no alcohol "bite" or burning.

This is a fantastic beer. Can't wait to compare it to the 2005 Reserva.

From the bottle.

Appearance: Deep dark mahogany. Nice white head.

Nose: Tons and tons of sweet, rich banana covered in caramel and chocolate. There's plenty of maltiness in the background and a hint of burnt bitterness.

Taste: A lot of fruit, and not necessarily the typical dried variety you find in a quad. The banana is there but in more of a dessert form. Coated in rich, sweet chocolates. Its all balanced by fresh green apple and bitter charcoal. The flavors are big and bold and all over the place. Clearly not as restrained and complex as a trappist Quad, but just as potently flavorful.

Mouthfeel: rich and creamy and almost cloyingly sweet.

Overall: A really nice, tasty, boldly flavorful Quad. A bit too much sweetness and not as much complexity as something like a Rochefort 10, but it definitely holds its own with the amount of flavor it brings to the table.
