Slightly chilled 33cl bottle into a tumbler. It had a lot of carbonation, pours as lively as a Duvel but settles down quickly. A nice two finger beige head sitting on top of an almost black body. The head calms down to a thin head with a nice smattering of dark yeasties on top. After it sits for a little bit the unfiltered nature is apparent as the sediment settles to the bottom. Aroma is interesting... sour cherry, woody, and breadlike. Nothing is overwhelming but it is really interesting. Taste has a nice cherry sour to it from the start to the finish. Sometimes there is a little sweetness or smokiness in the middle. The malt is noticeable for a brief moment as well. The finish is a smoky bitterness that lingers for a little while. This is surprisingly light bodied for 9% ABV and a strong belgium ale. The mouthfeel is lively, not quite fizzing and creamy. Most of the cream comes from the strong layer of foam on top. Overall, I’ll probably pick this up again if I see it anywhere.

kraddel (4593) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle at home Pours dark brown , big white head . Smell is very weird ... Green, but not at all in a hoppy manner, more like... earthy , leaves ,caramel, herbs ... Very complex and just weird . Taste is bit bitter, sweet, chocolate, bit metallic, earthy , caramel , malts, the herbal character is there, but way less than in the scent . Very , very complex beer, with the ideal carbonation . aftertaste is herbal earthy , soft and a tad sweet . No gusher, yet made by alvinne ( appatently different yeast according to the description . it IS possible !

shorlin (719) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
Random pickup from a store in Milan, had no idea what it was. Medium brown, little head. Aroma is quite boozy, with chocolate, molasses, boozy dark fruit rum cake. Taste is pretty nice, very enjoyable sweetness with a slick finish. I thought it was great.

Bière heavy dark brown matured on oak, importée aux States par « Twelve percent » … cela ne s’improvise pas !! Mais elle ne fait quand même « que » 9 % abv au compteur... même s’il s’agit d’un « révérend père » (traduction du nom). Par contre elle est à ranger parmi les quadruple, et non simplement dans les « belgian strong ale » comme le fait ratebeer... Couleur brun châtain très foncé et opaque. Mousse beige très épaisse, avec des petits cratères en haut, puis crémeuse et stable à 8 mm, superbe. Arômes de bois de fût, pruneau, vin rouge en chai de maturation. Sublime. 1ère bouche soyeuse à veloutée à l’entrée en matière exceptionnelle, vineuse (dans le bon sens des grands crus), boisée, complexe avec des fruits noirs, du raisin et une pointe de porto. 2ème avec un peu de café très distingué sur les nuances vineuses, et une pointe de bois de rose. 3ème avec du bois, des fruits noirs, malt, levure. Tout y est. Arrière-bouche pleine, ample, vaste … que dis-je, prodigieuse. La longueur nous donne du bois exotique, du grand vin, du fût de chai de supérieure maison … Exceptionnelle longueur avec un charme inouï (à ne pas confondre avec inuit …). La levure est riche, intense, aux mille nuances. Superbe veine. L’alcool répond à son attente, il fait un admirable travail, avec une progression lente et infinie. La finale donne des nuances d’une finesse divine, comme les grandes tapisseries du Moyen-âge. CONCLUSION : suprême nectar qui anoblit la bière pour la porter aux confins des grands vignobles. Après ce genre de bière, vous ne devez jamais vous abaisser devant un dégustateur de vin. Egalité totale entre les deux breuvages. Exceptionnelle complexité de cette quadruple. Honneur soit accordé à ce révérend père !!!

Alengrin (3401) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Abbey-style massive ale since 2008, with a creamy, yellowish beige head and misty bronze colour. Sweetly perfumed aroma of pear, port wine, dates, apple sauce, candi syrup, thyme, ginger, pepper. Relatively complex taste with candi sweetness, honeyish, oily and full mouthfeel, resinous, finishing in a subtle alcohol warmth with herbal hops that are applied too modestly to balance out the initial candi sweetness. Nice though, I you are into this style.

BlackHaddock (4995) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Draft at the 2014 Brugge Beer Festival on 2nd Feb. Smooth, creamy body with chocolate notes throughout, this is easy drinking beer hides it’s alcohol very well although there is a mild ’spirit’ feel within the taste and aroma below the soft milk chocolate front. Medium sweetness for a chocolate flavoured brew.
