How to taste

Of course, the original Trappists are the most authentic extra-strong darks/quads:

  • Westvleteren XII (which, let us remind you, is supposed to be sold on-premise only, and it’s rather hard to find one);
  • Rochefort 10;
  • Chimay Bleue;
  • and St. Bernardus 12, though it’s now a secular brew.
  • La Trappe Quadrupel;
  • Stift Engelszell Gregorius;
  • Achel Extra Bruin;
  • Zundert 10.
