Top Tier Trappist. I usually have it with an equally interesting piece of meat.

(2012) Black pour with off white head; figs, tobacco and prune notes. Tobacco figs dirt stone fruit and prune flavors. More earthy semi sweet fruit as it warms. Medium body and viscous tongue. Complex and delicious and only gets better with age.

This is a big damned beer! Really nice, classic dark fruits and raisins in the nose; deep, rich flavors follow on the palate, with big boozy presence. Finished a bit on the drier side. Not sure that I am on the 'best Belgian on the list' bandwagon, but this is obviously top shelf and enjoyable. Splitting one with a buddy was more than enough for me!

Not quite as good as the La Trappe quad. Similar though

I mean, it's good. But it isn't THAT good. Like $8 for a 12oz bottle? Bzzzzt. No.

This is truly a very beatiful beer!

It pours dark red-brown, almoust black with a one finger high, beige head that dissapears fast with a wizzing noice.

Nose: Vanilla, whiped cream, raisin, plum, milk chocolate, brown sugar and dark syrup.
Taste: Dried fruit, brown sugar, dark bread, a hint of coffee, licorice and vanilla.
Body: Medium body with a complex texture. High carbonation. A little warming booze from the 11.3% ABV. So great beer!

Absolutely top!

Dark dried fruits all around. Served straight out the fridge and the carbonation took away from the taste. Opened up as it warmed. Lots of raisin, fig, prune in this one

I never understood the Reinheitsgebot until I drank this beer, now it makes perfect sense; This isn't beer!! don't waste your money

330 ml bottle poured into a Belgian tulip

A: Dark brown, with an off white creamy head, lots of tiny bubbles in the head, some carbonation streaming off the bottom, some minor lacing.

A: Dark fruits, raisins, figs, yeasty aromas, it's a big Belgian yeast bomb, slight alcohol on the nose, malts definitely come through, smells really big.

T: Toffee sweetness, dark fruits, Belgian yeast, malts, nice slight caramel sweetness on the back end, very complex, some heat, but for 11.3% very drinkable, world class flavor.

M: Nice medium mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O: Very impressed, very complex, changes as it warms, very drinkable. I avoided imports especially Belgian beers because I think there are great beers made in America, but, there is something special about Belgian beers, and in my humility, I must admit that this is a world class beer, a must try if you want to taste something outside your comfort zone.

Take it with a grain of salt but it's too sweet, boozy with a touch of licorice. Not a fan of many quads and I relaize this is at the top of its class so me not liking the style isn't a knock on an outstanding beer.

Color is dark brown, with a beige head. The aromas of caramel and malt are dominant. Dark chocolate, plums and raisins can be distinguished in the taste, combined with a tender vinous touch. Although the beer has an ABV of 11,3%, it is very smooth to drink. Top class beer. Best beer I ever drank.

My favorite beer on Earth for over 15 years and counting. Will leave a proper review some time, but for now just understand this may be the most complex and delicious beer you may ever get a chance to drink, and the only beer I have ever had that earns a perfect 5/5 BA score.

4.7/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Quad of an opaque dark brown color and a nice, somewhat effervescent, foam that leaves a nice lace too.
Has an unbelievable and delicious yeasty head with a lot of chocolate tones.
Taste is way maltier, easy to feel the roasted malt, yeast and chocolate tones, some candy and dried fruits too.
Feel is incredible, almost perfectly balanced in the body, carbonation, bitterness (maybe a bit more bitter I would give a 5).
ABV is 11.30% and is extremely well hidden.

Final 3 of the big three Belgian quads.

Appearance: Dark but not completely without light, decent amount of light white bubbles. Nicely done.

Aroma: Dark ripe fruits and some caramel notes but not overly sweet, nice aroma overall

Taste: Extremely clean, more clean than the Abt. 12 but not as clean as the Westy, vinous character and not as much of the estery yeast noticed either. This one might be as good or better than the Abt. 12 and on par with Westy 12. Considering the ease of getting this might be the clear winner.

Overall: Very well made beer, extremely accessible and one I would go to over and over for the style. One of the best made quads on the planet and worthy of the high ratings. Very complex but has enough clean finish to make it worthy of looking out for. Definitely check this on out. It does not drink the abv that it is labeled as. The Belgians really do know what they are doing!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Poured into a traditional Belgian Ale glass. Translucent, dark mahogany color, leaves even lacing that stays til the last sip.

Smells like white grapes, sweet like candy.

Tastes sweet, so many flavors. Cherries, fruits/nuts, chocolatey malt on the swallow.

Some carbonation. Expands then melts in the mouth.

Amazing - best beer experience I've ever had.

clove and dark fruit permeate both the aroma and the palette, but the brew is frothy yet goes down very smooth & easy. Has a very warm, embracing spice profile to complement the fig and plum bread flavor.

- great cup lacing holds a nice foam rim,
-complex fruit sweetness paired with a nice bread or oat
-somewhat raisin or dark fruit, sour but not lingering what so ever pleasant sweet bread but dark
-warming and very smooth, over carbonated for my tasted.
-amazing beer love the taste and the complexity, minus a little over carbonated everything about this is top quality and what i imagine a Quad to taste like

11.3 ABV
11.2 oz Brown Bottle $6.45 State Street Northampton MA
Appearance: Cola Color
Foamy head formed but dissipated in a few seconds
Smell: Beery, oats, mild fruit
Flavor: surprisingly sweet and foamy - like a grown up root beer
No hoppy bitterness - finish very dry nearly no aftertaste
Overall: 4/5 Expensive for a single bottle, but at 11.2% not crazy
This is NOT a sour beer, actually a Sweet one.
If I had to drink a beer, this wouldn't be too bad.
It does go down Heavy though.

One of the best worth the $8 a bottle for 11.2oz. This would defently be part of my last meals if i was on death row. The after taste that sticks around your mouth and you can inhale into you're lungs is amazing. Love this beer!!!
