Pours cloudy, light chestnut in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is big fig, black cherry, brown sugar, fresh buttered pumpernickel bread, and raisin. Sweet, heavy bodied, with medium high carbonation. An incredible beer. I was disappointed with the dubbel, but this is lovely. All sorts of flavors opening up as I sip it and it warms. Amongst the best quads and trappist beers I have had.

Pours an almost white, creamy head. Color is medium-dark brown.

Nose is raisins, dates, and dried cherries and dark bread. Alcohol is noticable on the retro-nasal.

The taste follows the nose with raisins, dates and cherries. Also has caramel, mollases, and phenolic spicyness. The alcohol is not noticed on the tongue unless you attemp to aerate in your mouth, then the alcohol becomes very noticable. Sweet throughout, finishes dry.

The mouthfeel is smooth and on the fuller side of medium bodied. The carbonation is present enough to cut through the sweetness, but it isn't overly carbonated. Heat from the alcohol is defninently felt, but it is never strong enough to make you think about this being a 10 percent-er.

Overall, this beer is very solid. It comes accross as a more refined (and stronger) version of their Dubbel. It also has incredible drinkability for a 10% ABV beer. While not my favorite Quad, this is an easy recomendation to make.

Another beautiful example of a belgian quadrupel.
Pours as a dark brown liquid that is pure delight. Smells and tastes like toffee, chestnuts, with something like a bitter banana touch. Long lasting beige foam that I love. Very impressive and pleasant taste. Laced with an irresistible 10% alcohol volume that goes down easy like sunday morning.
A world class beer for you. Enjoy!

Typical romantic deep brown Quad with light brown head. Lacing is fine and clings to the glass.
Smell of deep malt with a slight note banana. Complex
Taste is a nice balance of sweet deep malt and fruit and a smooth rich mouthfeel. Finishes sweet.
Another fine Trappist Quad from and excellent brewery. They have also breached out to do collaborations in New Brunswick and the result was fabulous.

Deep, rich, and complex. It has notes of chewy bread, baked bananas, dried nuts and fruit. A perfect deep, rich, and eminently drinkable quad.

Off putting aftertaste that lingers and to sweet for my palate hurts the overall perfect quad in my opinion

Look: Clear, somewhat light amber-orange with a light tan head.

Smell: Like the description says, banana, vanilla, almond, with hoppy, some what grassy undertones.

Taste: This beer reminds me of amaretto. It's sort of bitter in the mouth (it's 10% and you can tell), and that took just a little bit away for me, but it's so sweet. The banana scent gives way to stronger taste of vanilla, almond, and maybe apricots (like I said, amaretto). Beautifully sweet going down, leaves kind of a cool aftertaste. Hints of roastiness as well, almost like hazelnut.

Feel: "Spicy" carbonation, good body. Dry mouthfeel after swallowing.

Overall: Easily one of my favorite beers.
