look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: Pours a very dark brown with some red notes, can't see through it. A two finger khaki head slowly dissipates, but never goes away completely. Surprising amount of lacing for a beer of this ABV.

S: Smells quite vinous right off the bat. Sour grapes, but with a rich malt backbone is the initial impression. Dark fruits covered in sugar. Plum particularly stands out for me. I get some green apple in the background. As it warms, I get very noticeable fig notes.

T: First got to mention that the alcohol is masked very well, and it can only be felt and tasted just the slightest, but blends with the beer gloriously. It is quite fruity. I also get a good deal of fig and raisin. Super well balanced. It never turns into a sweet mess even though I can taste the belgium candy sugars the more and more I sip.

M: It coats the mouth really well, but still retains a softness. I would say medium-full in the mouth, and slightly sticky, but at the same time dry. Perfect small-bubbled carbonation keep this beer lively in the mouth, love it!

This is my first time having an authentic Trappist quad, and I have really enjoyed this one. Side note: the bottle I have was aged for about a year and a half.

This is and always has been one of my favorite beers. The aromas of dark fruit (figs and plums) are noticable up front with a hint of spice behind. The taste follows the nose, but with a slightly sweet edge thanks to the alcohol. The beer has a great weight in the mouth and a nice long finish. One my wife and I always turn to when we want a pick me up or to celebrate.

It has a hazy dark brown coloring to it. Light passes through only at the edges of the glass. There is a slight reddish/orange coloring to it. When poured a half inch tan head forms. It’s a thick head made up mostly of tiny bubbles and it fades slowly to a film on the top of the beer. There was some nice lacing in the glass.

The smell starts off with a noticeably appetizing strong fruit scent. It consists mostly of dark fruits, but I detected a hint of pear or apple. It’s followed with some spicy hop scent and touch of anise, especially as it warms to room temperature. Surprisingly the smells cover the scent of alcohol for the most part.

The flavor is an amazing combination of dark fruits and molasses that mixes with a caramel malt taste that is absolutely incredible. The finish brings out some of that anise taste along with figs and a touch of oak. The flavor combination completely masks any taste of alcohol. It finishes clean with a smooth mild sweetness.

This is a medium bodied beer with a creaminess to it that coats the mouth. It has the perfect amount of carbonation, some bite on the tongue, but not enough to be distracting. This is a very easy to drink beer. One needs to be careful because of the high 11.3 ABV it could be easy for someone to over indulge accidently.

This beer has risen to the top ten favorite beers I’ve ever drank. This is so delicious and easy to drink that I could see myself going out of my way to find bottles of it. I wouldn’t recommend more than one or two in a night. If you have a chance to get your hands on one, do yourself a favor and buy it. I can easily see myself sitting back on a chilly Fall, Winter or Spring night enjoying one by a fire with friends.
