T: A bit astringent (product of 10% abv), malty, leafy
M: Medium-bodied, creamy, dry-ish finish
O: Dinged the taste slightly because the alcohol pokes through

I've had a lot of quads but this is my first real Trappist quad. Poured from a 25.4 ounce bottle into a large tulip glass.

A: Dark amber in color; lighter than other quads I have had. Lots of carbonation leaves a large head that lasts awhile.

S: Sweet, spicy, banana, bread, clove. Wonderful aroma, even cold out of the refrigerator.

T: What the aroma promises, the taste delivers. Fruit, malt, and spice are well-balanced, but the 10% alcohol is clearly present when sipping.

M: Medium bodied, a little sticky, this one feels good.

Overall: This is a very nice quad. It doesn't have the very dark appearance I was expecting, but the balance of dark fruits, malt, spices, and banana is just about perfect. Very enjoyable.

Quadrupel pours a dark cloudy reddish hue color with a nice long lasting head. There is a sweet dry and oakey aroma with nice mellow fruit notes. The taste has a mellow oakey backbone with a nice dry and semi sweet candied flavors, finishes warm and the oakeyness returns. Full flavors, good body, easy to drink. Overall a very solid quad.
