This is like Trappistes Rochefort 8, multiplied by two. See my review about Trappistes Rochefort 8, and multiply by, not two, but by 1.73.

Good stuff.

Best beer I've had so far. Poured into a Belgian Goblet, about 3in of head from pour, 2in staying after first sip. Smells caramelly sweet, tastes a strong burning alcohol, with a sweetness of dates upfront, and a caramelly finish. Sooo strong and complex yet soooo smooth and tasty. Just absolutely everything you could want.

It was ok. Don't see what is so special though.

The best Quad I've had. Deceptively powerful with complex dark fruit & spicy flavors. After buying one, I bought my local package shops entire stock left to cellar and enjoy throughout the year.

Appearance: muddy brown, unfiltered, like prune juice; very fine sand coloured head, like frothed egg whites, great lace

Aroma: floral, cinnamon, clove, five spice, banana; amazing and perfumy, like it was designed just for the nose

Taste & Mouthfeel: stings with alcohol which is balancing intense dark, fruits - prune, dates, figs; lightly of banana medicine you had as a kid; medium carbonation and body, really just right for the style; super dry finish and acidity are making it dangerously drinkable - and the intriguing flavour isn't slowing the pace either; mild semi-sweet chocolate, vanilla, toffee malts

Overall: really outstanding example of a good Belgian ale, one of my personal favourite styles, with amazing aroma and flavours that encourage far too rapid consumption; pair this with an equally intricate dessert - I'm imagining a cheesecake with a chocolate cookie crust topped with berries.

Popped my 5 year old bottle tonight. Boy is this one boozy. Got quite a bit of crystallization going on. Looks like brown sugar in the bottom of the glass. Taste very sweet and caramelized.

Lots of floaties going on but a great beer. My gf and her friend also took to it and want to drink it lol But at $8 a bottle, i'll keep this one to myself. Cheers

A - Pours a deep brown colour with fabulous slightly tanned frothy head that just laces beautifully

S - Loads of sweet malts, candy apple, dark fruit, raisins, dark chocolate..wow! Love it!

T - Dark fruit, figs, raisins, like Rum'Raisin dark chocolate, some caramel and a hint of vanilla with some spice that is balanced so well

M - Medium bodied and carbonation but so smooth and creamy

O - Awesome quad that is a must to try. With out a doubt one of my favourites

I had no idea what to expect when popping this bottle aside from a recommendation from a reliable friend of mine to try trappist beers. Pouring it out, the khaki head was thick, but eventually went down quite a bit (though never completely dissipating). Looking in the glass, it was fast apparent that this is the opposite of a well-filtered beer, with little bits dancing about in the carbonation. Color is very pretty; depending on the angle of the light hitting it, it can display mahogany or rosewood tones. The flavor has a sweetness to it that stays in my mouth, the kind of complex sweetness that a dried fruit like a date or a raisin has. No hops to speak of, but maybe a little bit of alcohol on the back end. The flavor is rich and complex, without being overpowering, and that is part of what makes this beer such a pleasure. That combined with the beautiful appearance and the aroma (with notes of dried date and rich caramel) show the obvious master craftsmanship that went into the making of this brew.
