A: poured into a Chimay chalice. poured a 2 finger off -white head with almost no lacing. Has a murky brown appearance.
S: Aroma is ripe plums and dates,: mildly boozy and yeasty smelling.
T: tastes of plums, raisins, dates,cloves hints of toffee and maybe the slightest hint of Turbinado or dark sugars. Very hard to nail it all down. Too many flavors to comprehend.
M: starts off as crisp but then does a 180 and finishes malty and creamy.
O: This is maybe my third sampling of a quad ever so I wouldn't say that I'm an expert on the style ' but this is easily my favorite of the others. I had this bottle in two sessions. The first time it was slightly over carbonated for my liking, too much like champagne. So I corked it and drank the rest the next day. I also paired it with some smoked Gouda and muenster . Wow what a difference. This quad has so much going on here . Yes it's cliche' but it is indeed very complex in all aspects. Believe the hype, It's that good. You know when you see a picture of a trappist monk and he's always smiling with a red nose and rosy cheeks? Now I know the source of his joy.

Much like the Chimay line of beers, and other Trappist brews, the blasé appearance of the bottle belies the complex flavor that lies within. It smells heavily like sugar, probably brown, and anise seed. It tastes heavily fruity, like a carbonated brandy, and is very yeasty. Goes pretty well with some Machego cheese and some hard salami. It's also got a pretty high alcohol content, around 11%, but the kick's somewhat delayed as it's just so darn tasty and toasty you don't really notice the wallop it packs 'til later.
