4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Pours a clear deep reddish brown colour with a small coffee-beige head. Powerful and nice aroma dried fruits, sweet malt, caramel, alcohol and wood. Complex. The flavour starts as the aroma and even more like a proper dark and sweet Belgian ale. Suddenly the flavour ends with a lot of lingering wine berries. Has a rich and silky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A fantasticly complex and balanced ale. Just wow!

Bottle 50cl, an amber dark beer with huge copper head and good retention, exceptional for 14° ! Nose is amazing on sweet caramel and complex wood notes.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rich mahogany color with a foamy khaki grey head that rises up out of the rim. The nose is complex and inviting, dark molasses, soft caramel, plum, vinous fruit and touch of nutty wood. The palate follows with a soft silky smooth mouthfeel that rolls the complex flavors from front to back . Beautiful elegance and focused balance. Damn this is top notch quad !
