3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Opaque and very dark brown. The head is thin but decently muscular. The aroma is like raisin wine. This drinks with a rich dark fruit body -- prune, raisin, plum. Delish. (#3947, 1/25/2013)

A big thank you to Bernard! Very hard to find, but thankfully the Wheatsheaf had a few left! The bottles had some age on their side which meant the beer was just lovely an juicy with full body and balance. It is not your typical quad but its is delightful and an unusual take on the theme. The taste was gorgeous and the ETOH was well hidden. Really pleased to finally get to try this great beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish brown color with a very thin lacing of white head. Aroma is a little fruity. Flavor is intense dark fruit, some raisins and prunes. A little bready and tartly sweet. Not bad, but not great for a Quad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very darky ruby amber, smells of sultanas and roasted oats and a hit of a funky yeast. Tastes like sultanas and thick hops, yeast a little bitte toward the end. Had a few of these, was best with richly roasted ribs

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours copper/amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel malts, floral hops, and some dark fruits. Flavor the same with some alcohol on the finish. Smooth texture. A decent quad but not the best.

Great beer from NZ. Dark, dried fruits in the aroma, bitter and sweet at the same time tastewise.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Dark fruity syrupy molasses nose. Smooth, light carbonation. Bigger body. Dry texture. Nice spicy sweet light bitter taste. Aroma of mediterranean spice, candi sugar, light dark fruit (raisin, fig). Mildly hazy darker red color. Good thin tan head. For me, this is just alright, as far as the quads I’ve tried go. Unlike most Belgian ales, this doesn’t get any better as it sits. Price is not justified.
