Very nutty, malty finish

Yummy and expensive. A little heavy on the malt, but a good choice for a rich Belgian

Tastes like banana nut bread with cherries

This is a great sweet malty beer. Lots if alcohol so it is a sipping beer.

Excellent quadruple, with a slight tartness from the 2 percent kriek. Not as sweet as Gulden Draak, nor as complex as Rochefort 10. Starts off heavy on clove and other spice notes, followed by malt complexity. Finish is slightly tart from the kriek.

Solid quadrupel. Mocha, cocoa hints with a citrus undertone.

This one took some getting used to for me. I did not care for the taste initially, which reminded me a bit of cough syrup. However, as the brew began to warm up and breathe, I found the taste improved as the flavor of dark cherry relaxed a bit. This beer has a subtle, warming afterglow that one can attribute to the well hidden 9.8% abv.

2018 update. The newer vintages are not good. Can?t taste cherry at all. Way too yeasty. The first one reminded me of a shitty home brew and went right down the drain. The next time it tasted ok but compared to St Bernardus 12 it just didn?t compare. Old review: Winning combo of malty Belgian-style ale with a touch of Belgian cherry ale. Nice head. Tastes great. Strong but smooth.
