3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. A quad from New Zealand? Interessting.. This one pours a nougat-red-brown body with a nice big and lasting off-white lacing head. A bit tart and almost sour on the aroma. Quite woody, lots of ripe red berries, raisins, some dog and it’s also quite malty. Soft carbonation levels between a thick, oily and almost sticky mouthfeel. Flavors are light tart and almost on the edge of sour in this one. I would much rather classify this as a strange cousin of a oud bruin more than a quadruple. It’s really woody and vinious this also, before it continues with some old red fruit-berries, oxidized sweet caramel and some alcohol twitches towards the quite dry finish. Nice enough, but as I mentioned, not a Belgian quad. 05.01.2012

Bottle. Brownish black beer with a fairly strong head. The aroma is malty and vinous, and the flavour is spiced, gingery and malty roasted. Overall a nice very strong malty and spiced Belgian style beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy dark amber with a creamy tan head. Lots of dark fruit in the aroma. And kandi. Flavor is very raisin/dark fruit with some yeast/spice and remnants of kandi. There’s a very slight suggestion of chocolate. It’s more than mildly bitter, and I’d say fairly dry. Glad to have tried this.
