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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Henrik, Bergen. Has a hazy dark amber colour with a small off-white head. The aroma is wonderful with caramel, sweet berries, cocoa, leather, wood, spices and brown sugar. The flavour is even more sweet with sweet berries, leather, wood and caramelized sugar. Has a rich and slick mouthfeel, and a light bitterness. A fantastic and well-balanced ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Yeasty-fruity with only a hint of banana. Excellent and smooth full body.
Very drinkable; with a fine and very long lasting aftertaste. Lots of dark fruit flavor, including raisins. Good bitter/sweet balance. High ABV is well hidden.
