Although quads aren't my favorite style, this was enjoyable!

Wow. My first bottle from the precious brick. Very complex flavor. Tall head in beer flute, shorter in IPA glass. Cocoa and unsweet orange in the nose. taste is Overtones of coffee, soft resin, pear and molasses. Soft carbonation on palate, smooth texture and fruity aftertaste. Strong sweet alcohol taste. Lovely.

A: deep brown, cloudy, lacy head that thins out and remains for a while. S: raisins, figs, caramel, black cherry, booze. T: very strong alcohol punch, then balanced by dark fruits, caramel, and malts. Almost a rum aftertaste when warmer. M: huge, velvety, warming, and smooth. O: Lives up to the hype! Exceptional beer. Extremely flavorful and intense, yet balanced and drinkable.

A very smooth, sweet, malty beer. The sweetness of the beer is cut by the alcohol, but the alcohol is not overbearing. This beer is dark in color but more in the middle of the color spectrum. A great beer that lives up to the hype! profile - January 7, 2013
Did a blind tasting with the St. Bernardus 12 and Rochefort 10. While this beer was a bit more potent and had more of a bite to it, it by no means lives up to its reputation.

Incredibly smooth with a sweet finish. Good thing I bought 5 cases!
