Best by 28.06.17, so I would guess this was bottled this June? Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a St Bernardus chalice.

A- pours a dark chestnut with a 2 finger tan head. Minimal lacing remains on the glass.

S- light brown sugar, dark fruits, alcohol, bread, and spices.

T- amber malts, some brown sugar and dark fruits, slight bitterness, good amount of spices and decent bit of booze near the finish.

M- medium body and carbonation. This is a sipper because of the booziness more than the body.

O- I think I prefer Westy 12 and Abt 12 to this actually. This is pretty damn boozy, but it is pretty fresh. Maybe have to buy a bottle it cellar for 2 or 3 years and revisit?

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Price: $6 / 330ml

Appearance: Reddish dark main with rusted perimeter. Standard khaki head for the style which is thick and low.
Aroma: Rich in spices, fresh baked bread (like all trappists), and of blue berry jam. Smells slightly of alcohol which is contradicted in the flavor.
Flavor: The usual caramel and brown sugar but rich with fresh dates, figs (and for that matter prunes), malt, hints of nutty bleu cheese. Purple fruit flavor overall with butterscotch and raisin finish. Has an almost… powdered cocoa mid-palette or maybe it’s just from the sweetness fading to tart.
Overall: Deceptive for such a dark beer to be as smooth and light bodied as it is. Heavy alcohol flavor but with such a high ABV that is nearly impossible to avoid. The only acidity detected would be that of a stale orange peel. Medium to low carbonation.
Placement: This beer is worthy of putting on a beer list.

330ml bottle, poured into Leffe chalice. Colour was very dark copper, almost opaque with auburn edges. One finger tanned head, very good retention. There top of the head had a small scar on it from the pour. Aroma was very pronounced, could be smelled from much further away than usual. I detected musty grape. Tasted caramel, figs, brown sugar, molasses and malt. Booze was so well hidden I wondered if they put the decimal point too far to the right! If it hadn't been for a slight burn at the finish I couldn't have detected any. Texture was moussy, silky smooth and light. Overall amazing. Look, aroma and texture achieved perfection.

A: Massive upfront carbonation. with white head 4cm of head. Dark brown can't see true the glass. Effervescently carbonating and looks very murky.

S: aroma is dank, getting lots of roasted malts, cherries and caramel.

T: taste a lot of dark cherries, dark fruits, raisins, prunes, figs, very complex yet very drinkable. Also has some caramel/toffee flavor to mellow it out.

M: tangy, citrusy, creamy and a little tart. Amazing balance and very. Has a medium-large body

O: Sweeter than other quads. Very Very impressive. 11.2% abv but more like a 6-7% beer.

11.2oz bottle
Westy 12 chalice

A: Pours deep murky ruby reddish brown color. Like others have said, looks like Coca Cola. Initially about a quarter finger of off white head. Faded quickly into ring. Doesn't look too carbonated, but looks can be deceiving.

S: Smells like a quad: figs, dates, raisins, brown sugar, molasses, etc. Great nose.

T: Dark fruit bomb. It's pretty fabulous. Big fig. Big prune for sure. Brown sugar sweetness. Some toffee notes. Finish is lingering sweetness.

M: It's a big medium. It's not quite full. Big bottle carbonation.
