Lore (2175) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 1, 2016
hazy brown colour with slight ruby notes, minimal off-white head - more like lacing than a real head; aroma of intensive red wine and oak barrel notes, overripe black sour cherry and dried plum soaked in cognac, and some alcohol; taste of intensive dry red wine, tannins, dried plum and cherry soaked in alcohol, burnt sugar, syrupy sweetness,maybe some herbal notes, too, a bit exaggerated alcohol and some brett-like sourness; good quadrupel, but not among the best ones Iíve tried

nutjes (252) - Heestert-Zwevegem, BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2016 50cl-fles van bij Bierhalle Deconinck te Vichte. U: Helder donkerbruin met bruine schuimkraag die snel inzakt. G: Rode wijn, karamel en kandijsuiker. S: Vineus wat overheerst. Karamel en wat alcohol warmte in de afdronk. Naar mijn smaak veel te vineus M: Volmondig met medium carbonatie.

Maarten1993 (1004) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2016
Drank during Beer & Boots 18-9-2016. Some alcohol bitterness, but mainly a very rich candy-like taste. Good.

BlazerT (500) - POLAND - SEP 5, 2016
Bottle. Teku. Deep brown/reddish with small, semi-densed, light brown head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma is very winey, slightly oaky with decent, noticeable malty notes - dark and burnt sugar, some caramel, raisins, woody. Taste is semi-sweet, which lasts till the end of degustation, ABV is very well hidden. Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, finish is pure, woody. In general drinkable, taste like old good wine, very interesting and not so packed with malts, nicely balanced.

ciocanelu (1330) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 3, 2016
Muddy brown color with just a bit of beige foam. Aroma has brown sugar, caramel, dried dark fruits and some oak. Taste starts with sweet malt, dark fruits, caramel, booze and finishes slightly bitter with some dark chocolate and slightly roasted malt. Itís quite good but a bit boozy for my taste.

johndoughty (4990) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle. Lovely smoked port like flavour.Tastes like a classic wine rather than a beer. Smokey and malty-needs to be supped rather than drank. Superb.

Palme (4134) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2016
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This one pours a, well I guess you can call it unclear but not directly cloudy looking near bronze colored dark body with a bubbly and sidesticking mild beige top. It has, to my surprise, a relative low nose. I have to struggle to get anything else than a sweet toffee pudding nose here. Some darker types of fruit also detected. Sweet kiwi. It doesnít smell like a 14 percenter, but it smells nice. Mild but nice. Tastes quite decent also. Rounder than I thought. Lots of raisins, itís sweet and sticky both in the taste and in the mouth. Soft and prickling on the carbonation. Red caramel and itís scary lightdrinkable. Sweet but no alcohol either warming or sting. Melon in the finish. Quite nice. 04.08.2016

Rask0lnikov (751) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 2, 2016
500ml bottle. Hazy, brownish colour. Nice, medium white head. Hints of red wine, earthiness, hints of berries, hints of oak, hints of caramel and dark fruits in the aroma. Hints of caramel, liqeury notes, hints of berry wine, bitter, woody notes in the middle. Some sweetness. Caramel and dark fruits. Toffee and and notes of wine in the end. Hints of red wine in the aftertaste. Quite interesting, quite well balanced, nice belgium strong ale. Enjoyable.
