totally stunning. it has weight and richness and wonderful malt/yeast complexities while still having a lightness- an almost sour edge that makes it so drinkable. A pleasure.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle into tulip. Lille.
Appearance: massive offwhite head with lots of retention. Complete opaque liquid. Deep brown with a touch of amber.
Aroma: toffee, roasted malt, fruit, apple?
Taste: relatively dry for a quad. Bitter finish, but not over bearing.
Palate: full body, thick oily texture. Medium long finish.
Overall: this is a big beer with a lot of complexity. On the drier side for a quad. A good strong palate. Not my favorite quad, but an excellent beer overall.

Murky bronze appearance. Pungent baking soda smell. Smells briny but good. Aroma is intriguing and scary at the same time. Fantastic organic, nutty flavor. Terrific drinkability. This is a lovely beer overall.
