    Pours an opaque chocolaty brown with a thick light tan head. Rich aroma has a malty core and cinnamon, caramel and apple notes plus hints of wood and cloves. Excellent flavor has malty, fruity, cinnamon, horehound and hoppy notes. Bitterness is subtle and nicely balances the sweet component. Lively, fizzy texture has firm body and leaves a woody, fruity finish. Take, drink, this is monk’s blood! :D

    Craft Belgian in a can man. A good looking pour, color is spectacular. Mildly heavy and very fruity with a good yeast and raisin kick. A great beer in a great vessel at a wonderful price. One of the better 21st Amendment brews I've had.

    Nifty. Kind of a Westleteran mixed with a JW Lees. Definitely more barelywine-like than quad but all in all quite delicious, well balanced, very drinkable.

    A quad in a can..........this could open up a whole new marketing gimmick for the Trappists! A typical reddish-brwon pour, murky, with a thick light brown head. The aroma is dark caramel malt, brown sugar, and fruits. The flavour is a bit sweet with candied sugar aplenty. Good, but not in the same class as a Westy or a Rochefort!

    best beer from 21st to date. a "dark belgian w/NW hops, candi sugar, cinammon, vanilla, & eight malts". this beer was quite tasty & unique. mahogony brown color, and a nice and sweet complex malty aroma. not a ton of yeast. the aroma was nice, but the flavor just exploded in the mouth. more, and better, than i was expecting. the candi sugar and vanilla are showcased, but the whole package is a nice mix.

    Interesting fruity twist on a BSDA but a bit too sweet. In my opinion, this beer could have come out a bit better with some souring and a bit of time in an oak barrel. The beer pours red-tinged brown with a dissipating, off-white head. The aroma is vanilla, cherries, caramel, cognac and some sweet fruitiness, which may be from the figs but it’s more sweet than figgy. The flavor is just a bit too sweet, throwing the whole package off a bit for my tastes. I’m not saying it’s terrible, but I think the beer could have really benefited from more attenuation. This is probably one of the best beers that I’ve had out of a can.

    Sampled on 12/18/2009. This Belgian Quadruple pours a medium brown color with some very nice ruby highlights. Medium sized tan foamy head, with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is fruity, caramel, spicy and sweet. A medium bodied quadruple. The malts are fruity and sweet. There is a hint of figs and some vanilla. The hops are earthy. Nice balance. It has that Belgian sweetness (candi sugar?) yet it doesn’t have that estery yeasty flavor. Nice beer, sweet without being cloying. The cinnamon shows up at the finish. A nice quad in a can. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.
