look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

bottle in a tulip glass. paired with dutch gouda cheese.

Appearance: Large mocha/off white fluffy head, beautiful lacing. Very dark beer

Aroma: wow. so complex, very hard to describe. mostly figs, raisins, banana bread, dark fruits, smells like a sweet nectar thats been aged in oak.

Taste: World Class beer. Had a lot of hype to live up to, and the only other Belgian quad i've had is St. Bernardus ABT 12. I like this one better, has a sweeter smoother taste. Instantly you're hit with dark fruits, almost mango and cherry notes. This is followed by a sweet banana bread aftertaste, and the belgian yeast really shines through. The alcohol is faintly noticeable at best, as it's smoothly disguised in the dark sweetness of this beer. As most others have noted, these flavors really come through after it's been sitting out at least 10-15 minutes and warms up a bit. When its really cold it masks a lot of the flavor. Although its most noted as a sipping beer, wI agree is the best way to savor it's beauty, I caught my self trying to drink it very fast as it is just so damn good and refreshing. I highly doubt any other 11% beer has the smoothness and taste that this ale can offer.

Mouthfeel: Perfect. Perfect carbonation, you just want to cherish every sip. Creamy and full. So good when paired with stronger cheeses, would love to try Limburger with this.

Overall: This has moved into my current top 5, truly a beer to cherish. At 7.99 a bottle, not something I will drink everyday, but will be buying this over and over again whenever I need a great quad to just sit down and enjoy. If you're familiar with other non-trappist Belgian Ales, such as Duvel, Delirium, or La Chouffe, you'll immediately recognize the signature Belgian yeast tastes, but as a trappist quad, you really are getting an amazingly complex tasting beer used with the finest ingredients. Yea these beers have a lot of hype that i'm sure factors into a lot of reviews, and frankly, all the hype is warranted and well deserved. Looking forward to trying Westvleteren 12 next year when I get to go back to Belgium. My hat is off to these monks that still continue to make and supervise the production of this beer.
