What a wonderful suprise this beer was. Pours dark brown with plenty of delicious sediment with not much of a head. Carbonation is plentiful. At first smell i get plums or even raisins with some spice to it. The taste confirms it. Wow it was amazing. A light feel was surprising to me but welcomed. One the best beers Ive ever had. Well worth the price.

Full review, second had.

Served in a chalice from the bottle.

A: a beautiful dark brown with slight ruby hinted in the light. A nice one finger head gives way to a small and tight froth.

S: fruity and sweet. The plums and dark fruits come forth as do a bit of yeast that makes this complete.

T: the Belgian yeast comes through along with the fruityness and some nice dark raisins or molasses.

M: full carbonation fairly smooth and the booziness is mild.

O: this is a fantastic example of a Trappist quad. I've had several of the type, including Westy 12, and I have to say this is my favorite. It is just a complete beer...pure and joyful. I just wish it was a little easier to get where I am.

11.2oz bottle poured into a St Bernardus glass

Pours dark brown, slightly cloudy (I turned the bottom upside down, so without agitation, I probably got as much sediment as I'm going to get), medium-to-small light tan head. Lots of fine fast active carbonation. Smell is the expected dark fruity with a surprising spicy note.

Taste is great. I understand why this is so highly rated. I get a little of the dates, and a tiny hint of cherry sweetness, and some plums with overripe plum tartness, more of that mystery spice from the aroma, yeast/breadiness, plain alcohol if you pay enough attention...This is still fairly cold, so the already bright flavors might further brighten as it warms.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly light and airy. Overall, this definitely beats out St Bernardus ABT 12, which I love. I think the primary factor is that this isn't as sweet, which lets other flavors come out more.
