Poured into a Chimay goblet, this review is from notes 1/30/2012

A- Dark cloudy brown color similar to muddy water. Off white 1 finger head that left some nice lacing and alcohol legs.

S- Amazingly complex. Smells of rum soaked raisins, ripe figs and prunes, vanilla, sweet malts and brown sugar. With a nice touch of alcohol.

T- WOW this is a great complex tasting beer. There is some sweet malt and fruity yeast esters put together with a nice bitterness. There is a warming from the alcohol in the back of the throat and down your chest. Love the dark fruit flavors mixed with a nice touch of alcohol that cleanses the palate for the next sip.

M- Heavy carbonation almost like champagne. Very smooth really great mouthfeel.

O- Full disclosure I have had this beer many many times. Just thought it was about time that I reviewed it. This is one of my favorite beers, in fact I drink this beer enough for it to qualify as my go to beer. Its one of the beers that got me into craft beer. So I pay homedge. Thank you Trappist monks for making beer that repels zombies and gets me closer to Heaven.

Bottle brought to the US by a friend.

A- Cloudy brown. Off-white head with minimal lacing.

S- Smells like other quads: lots of bread accompanied with the belgian yeast smell.

T- Caramel, bread and dark fruit all accompanied by the standard Belgian yeast and spiciness.

M- Medium bodied with a good carbonation level.

O- I am not the biggest fan of this style in the first place, but this is one of the better ones.

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.

I have had this beer several times and each time I have it I realize how great it is! I have never had Westy 12 but this Trappist is top notch!

Pours a nice head, the aroma is excellent and the taste is fantastic! It's pricey for a single bottle but is worth the journey.

I have tried an incredible amount of beers and this is a top twenty five for sure.

get some!

Served in a Chimay Chalice

Pours dark amber brown murky with a nice 1.5 finger off-white fluffy head that leaves great lacing. The nose has some sweet dark fruits like raisins, cherries or figs then some tartness like apple and finally followed by a Belgium yeast aroma. Right up front on the taste is that sweet dark fruit taste like raisins or figs a touch of alcohol then that great bready Belgium yeast flavor that I love with quads. Smooth, it coats my mouth very well but to me its a little too carbonated. Over all this is a great beer, it isn't as good as Westy12 or Pannepot but for availability this is a very good beer.

Appearance. Pours a murky, deep amber-brown with a finger of foamy, light tan head that leaves a little lacing.

Smell. Toasted grains, green caramel apples, a little cherry and cola. Sweet and yummy.

Taste. Raisins and brown sugar, some toasty caramel malts, and just a hint of spice that I can't quite peg. A little alcohol bite.

Mouthfeel. Medium-full body with medium carbonation. Some warmth, but very complimentary.

Overall. Beautiful quad. Would love to try one that's been around a while.

poured from bottle into chalice.

A-dark murky brown. Has an orange glow around the edges up to light

S-very matly. sort of sweet. crisp. mzybe some nuts.

T-very malty. pretty sweet. not much hops. not getting much yeast either. Balanced pretty well for how malty it is.

MF-pretty thick. Thick body, goes down pretty smooth, with lower carbonation and a pretty sweet aftertaste.

O-pretty good beer. I dont like it as much as the ratings say, but i have not had much for the style so I don't have much to compare it to, or base it off of. wouldn't mind having on occasion though.

O - Pours chestnut brown with 1 finger of khaki head, almost no lacing.

S - Brown sugar mixed with mild dark fruits, cherries and plums, and a bit of Belgian yeast.

T - Plums and brown sugar, but nothing really jumps out at me.

M - High amounts of carbonation typical of the style.

O - This one really needs to warm to get all of the flavor out. One of the great Trappist quads.
