11.2oz bottle, best by May 16, 2012, this has about 3.5 years under its belt. Served at cellar temp.

Pours murky brown with a fair fizzy-looking off white/tan head that holds a small cap but doesn't leave much lacing.

Aroma is a lot of dark fruits, raisins, plums, figs, currants, grapes, good caramel along with toasted bread, yeast, some chocolate, a bit of molasses, candi/brown sugar. Very good strength and I seem to pick up something new each time I take a whiff.

Flavor is a rich combination of dark fruits, plums, figs, raisins, black currants, as well as chocolate, toffee, brown sugar, caramel, molasses, toasted bread and yeast. No real alcohol in the taste, but a touch of heat as it goes down. A bit of sweetness, not much bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy and lush, medium carbonation. Drinks all too well for such a big beer.

It's been a few years since I've tried the 10 and to be honest I wasn't blown away the first time...felt it was a bit on the watery side but this bottle certainly isn't. Very rich, complex and delicious. Definitely holds up well to some age.

Absolutely fantastic. You'd never guess this has an alcohol content similar to wine. The alcohol taste is certainly present, but perfectly balanced in the beer and by no means overpowering.

Overall a very well balanced beer in terms of its flavor and heaviness. It's rather expensive but it is simply delicious.

Bottle poured into a Trappistes Rochefort Chalice.

A- Pours a very hazy, murky beer bottle brown. With a cream colored head that left very little lacing.

S- Smells of breads, caramel malts, raisins and dark fruits. There is little bit of brown sugar and hints of nuts.

T- WONDERFUL! Very well balanced. All the smells are there. The "bread" really comes out. Not overly sweet.

M- It has some warmth to it. Medium/Heavy body to it.

O- This is a beer that I've had many times and I enjoy it time, after time, after time. Highly recommend. This is a great example of the style.

One of my favorite beers! Dark color with minimal head. Taste of dark fruits. Really good!

A deep brown pour, initially with a thick creamy tan head but soon it turns into a thin film which leaves a sheet of excellent lacing in it's wake. One of the better looking brews.

A somewhat sweet aroma, with some dark cherry and grape.

Tasted like a very well balanced mixture of the above, along with some licorice. The alcohol was there, but blended in much better than most beers of this strength. Very nice.

Mouthfeel was near perfect, yet just a small notch below the very best. Medium/thick and smooth, and with a nice tingle.

This is certainly one of the best beers of it's style. I really liked how it wasn't too over the top with the dark fruit taste or alcohol. Everything meshed together very well to create a wonderful beer to sip and admire.

This pours out a nice dark blackish with brown edges. At tall unforgiving head stands atop the beer like a piece of cake. The smell is amazing. It fills the entire room. Citrusy at first crack of the bottle. As I pour it out, it is a bit more earthy and yeasty. Has a nice fruity aroma. This has a very earthy taste. Not as fruity/estery as the smell. And a great kick of alcohol warms my mouth and throat. The roasted maltiness is just bitter and sweet enough. Quite delicious, but slightly less complex than I expected. This is probably the best mouthfeel on a beer I have ever had. Normally I rate mouthfeel half heartedly, but this one is full, huge carbonation and a nice smooth velvety finish with the alcohol warmth to boot. Just a fantastic beer to the end of a long day.

Out of the bottle at Fin de Siécle in Brussels, Belgium.

A- Dark, cloudy brown body with a half finger white head that doesn't stick around for long. It does not look still, but it certainly does look mysterious. No lacing.

S- Raisin, fig, caramel, vanilla, other dark fruit, a bit of earth, yeast spices. Complex and strong.

F- Caramel, dark fruits- cherry, raisins- yeast spices, a bit of vanilla, sweet dark malt. Gets even better as it warms up. Very aggressive on the palate.

M- Full bodied, smooth and rich. Slight sticky feel in the mouth. Some dark fruit sweetness and alcohol heat on the finish.

O- Aggressive quad with a great mouthfeel and a nice complexity. One of the best in the style, and so readily available. It's great!

Got a few bottles of this and I break them out whenever I’m in the mood for a great Quad. I opend the less then 12oz bottle and poured into a glass a murky brown color, the darkest of the big trappist beer. I smelI is slightly boozy and sweet yeast. The taste is strong upfront but super sweet and fruity on the end. This one is my favorite of the trappist collection. super well balanced and a great over all brew that I’m glad I can get it easy.
