Quite possibly my favourite quad, surpassing Westy 12 and Abt 12.

Pours a gorgeous burnt sienna into my ommengang snifter. soft white head that lingers up and down the glass. The aroma of delicious candy sugar fades into sugar plums and mandrin oranges. The flavor of bready caramel malts lingers as candied fruit wash over the tongue with a warming brandy quality. It dances over the tongue and makes me wish for more!

Pours a deep brown almost black with white head.

Smell - Ok, I'm not great with smells overall, but this one was strong and malty, what I would expect.

Taste - So very good. Robust, complex full of malty goodness.

Mouthfeel - lower on carbonation then I am used to, but did not detract from the experience at all.

Overall - exceptional beer. MUST try. I will be buying this again, particularly if I can find cases.

I had this while in Bruges recently . . . at Cambrinus. I would put this up there with Rochefort 10 which I've always liked better than Westvleteren XII and St Bernardus Abt 12.

October 28, 2017 long on the shelf but could not wait anymore of Brewery De Halve Maan the Straffe Hendrik Brugs Quadrupel; Full sweet juicy plums with a touch of dark bitter roast of chestnuts in short the full quadruppel taste just on the edge of guarantee but could have allowed a bit longer to ripen
