Glassware - Tulip
Aged 2 years

A - Brown and murky. The head is full but dissipates quickly.

S - A nice combination of dried fruits and alcohol. Raisins, figs, and perhaps dates.

T - The flavors are subtle and don't leave much on the palate. As it warms, those dried fruits come through a little more along with the alcohol presence.

M - Nice carbonation, medium body.

O - While a very good beer, I expected more. I anticipated the two years of age to bring out more flavors and contribute to its complexity. The flavors were just too subdued and left my palate too quickly. Perhaps two years is not the ideal aging time.

This beer is definitely a work of art. The flavor profile is so dense. It's the pinnacle of the Trappist beers I've tried. My only small gripe: The taste of alcohol was a bit much for me. It overpowered the beer, IMO. It's possible I was using an unsuitable glass that concentrated the alcohol vapor. (Spiegelau Witbier glass) I would definitely like to revisit this.

Poured into a snifter. Opaque dark brown. The 1-finger head was slightly off-white.

The aroma is of sweet fruit, spice, and with slight sourness and funk.

The taste is roasty and sweet: dried fruit -- maybe figs. There is a very low hops presence.

The medium level of carbonation is nice. The beer has an appropriate body.

Overall, I like this a lot -- quite a bit more than Rochefort 8.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Deep brown with a touch of red. Figgy. Airy cappuccino-color foam.
S: Oh, the esters. Banana, cherry, clove, dutch cocoa.
T: Holy malty roastiness of goodness. Stone fruit, barley, light roast coffee, french oak, even moar banana & clove. Teensy bit o' booze.
M: Small amount of volatility/alcohol. Light carbonation.
O: It's a tasty quad (and still one of my favorite Belgians overall). Readily available and consistently delicious. I feel like this is the easiest gateway between whisk(e)y drinkin' and craft beer drinkin'. Would love to see how this ages but can tell the brewers put enough care into this to wait until this was ready for our tasting.

4.38/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Plenty of carbonation in the dark brown body, which is odd since there was barely a line of head. There a couple spots of brown yeast floating in the beer, despite leaving a inch in the bottle.

Smell: Warming helps out the beer quite a bit, rich toffee malt with chocolate notes. There's also a background note of plum and cherry. Could be a little bit strong, but I like what I am smelling.

Taste: It's like drinking a mix of rum cake and black forest cake, it's so rich. Starts with a mild spiced rum taste with toffee malt in the background and then, rich chocolate, cherries and stone fruit as the chocolate ends with a slight dark chocolate twang with another mild caramel malt hit.

Mouthfeel: The carbonation helps out the entire beer, although points do get deducted for the lack of head. The aftertaste is a very nice mixed bag of the main taste that knows just how long to linger. Good transitioning as well, although I've had better, but that's like complaining about getting a wrinkled hundred dollar bill.

Drinkability: On the heavier end of medium bodied, which is actually mild for something this rich, and a Quad with that much malt. It's really smooth and easy to drink as it settles down well, which is surprising how much carbonation is present.

Final Thoughts: While it didn't quite impress as much as their #8 did, this is another solid offering. I sincerely hope #6 makes it to the LCBO at some point, because this was excellent. I wonder if these monks considering trying their hand at a Tripel. Thumbs up.
