poured into a snifter.

appearance: 2 finger tan head, very frothy. dissolves to a very creamy cap. beer itself appears to be brown with garnet highlights.

smell: very sweet. strong notes of caramel with a bit of raisin and a dash of stonefruit.

taste: initial taste is very malty and phenolic. as it sits it grows into a mix of molasses and brown sugar, accented by notes of spice. the aftertaste is mildly bitter with the spice taking a back seat and the molasses-like flavor lingering. the alcohol is definitely noticeable, sitting at 11.3%, but it isn't overpowering.

feel: lots of body in this beer. very creamy and thick, it sticks to the tongue and mouth. definitely a sipper.

overall: an excellent quad. it's easily drinkable, despite (or perhaps because of) the sweetness and the velvety smooth mouthfeel. definitely one of my favorites, although for around $8 per bottle it's not something i'd drink every day.

Poured from a 11.2 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, the "best by" date on bottle is "L.31.01.2023" which I understand to mean this beer was brewed on January 31, 2018 as the recommended shelf life is 5 years..

APPEARANCE: pours a dark, brown color with two-fingers tan head, world class retention, a thick cap of foam persisted until the last, heavy lacing on the glass, medium carbonation (I think?), I have not seen a better looking beer, I seriously considered scoring as 5 but, I do not believe in perfection.

SMELL: in a word.....spectacular, initially bread, molasses, sweet raisins, figs and black licorice, very complex and pleasant to the nose, I again almost gave this a 5.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet molasses, raisins, figs, black licorice and bread, the 11.3% ABV is very well disguised.

PALATE: full bodied with medium carbonation.

OVERALL: this is an absolutely gorgeous beer and the smell is unparalleled, this was a real treat and I thoroughly enjoyed this beer, this is the best Quad I have had to date, I will highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys the style and will definitely buy this again, well done!

Such a classic benchmark of the quad style. Couldn't believe I had never rated it, even though it has been a while since I've had one from a bottle at home. Marvelous balance of dark stonefruit and caramel, malted sweetness. Just a hint of lemon brightness near the finish.

Huge foamy light tan head over a dark brown beer that seems like it wants to be burgundy around the edges, nearest light. Smell starts out with fig, morphs into a corn kinda thing with a little heat. Taste is more raisin than fig with a massive bread quality with lingering heat. This is an extremely lively beer, leaving a little alcohol bitterness behind.

One of the best beers I’ve ever had. Big beer, with almost a port feel. Hints of plums, with a huge bread taste.

Amazing.

A: Big malty smell with huge bready notes, dark raisin (rum soaked) and bubble gum.
A: Pours a dark turbid brown, leaving sediment in bottle. Head is tan with large bubbles that fall quickly (refreshed by swirling). Champaign quality. Legs on glass suggest this is a high alcohol offering.
T: Big, bold, bready malt dominates the front palette. Following are big notes of rummy raisins and a warm alcohol presence which gives away the high alcohol content. Hint of bubblegum in the middle. The end of the sip offers more bready malt and a long warm finish. No apparent hop charater.
O: There is a alot going on here. From the bready malts to the boozy raisins this high ABV quad offers just about everything one would be looking for in this style. While it is clear this is a high ABV, it is actually surprising that it clocks in at 11.3%

A 330ml bottle, with a best before date of 3rd October 2022. Poured into a Chimay goblet.

Appearance: Dark brown in colour with an almost two finger tanned head that had decent retention but eventually settled to a nice self replenishing cap while leaving nice curtain like lacing.

Aroma: Strong dark fruits, plum, dates, raisin, black currants, caramel, light roast, toasted bread with a hint of clove and bubblegum.

Taste: Lightly sweet, dark fruits, plum, raisin, dates, fig, black currant, candied sugar, caramel with light banana and clove.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, light syrup, light booze, medium to full bodied with moderate to low carbonation.

Overall: Excellent, just so good. This is easily my favourite Trappist Quadrupel out there. It’s just so balanced, tasty and a joy to drink.
