Did a blind sampling of all trappist quads including westy 12 and I thought la trappe was the best!

Murky, swampy prune brown colour. Very little head, no carbonation and just a trace of lacing.

Strong aroma of prunes soaked in a mega dose of cognac. Also rosy floral smell and the aroma of an over-ripe peach.

Taste is much like the aroma. Tons of sweetness that lasts for a long time. Some would say this is cloying but I welcome it and invite it to sit down and stay awhile. Caramel laced with cognac over prune. The alcohol taste is there but it is offset by the sweetness so that it is not harsh.

Heavy feel. The ale coats the mouth and bring warmth.

Wonderful drink. Like a cognac liqueur ale.

Great quad. A little fruity for me, but excellent nonetheless.

Poured a lovely copper/amber color with very little head into a La Trappe chalice. Fruity nose. Taste is pleasantly sweet and fruity -- and boozy -- with notes of banana, raisins, and caramel. Almost wine-like in a way. Light carbonation and mouthfeel for the style. Not my favorite quad, but it is nevertheless excellent if the sweetness doesn't bother you.

This is a little sweet for me, however, the malts and hops balance it out pretty well. I have to say this is a damned good Trappist quad.
