Perfecta. L’envelliment a la bota mata les notes dissonants típiques dels llúpols belgues. Graduació engayosa

Thanks Glenn for the shares. Holy hell, found the holy grain of beer. A sipper for sure, but dman this is as close of wine being used to brinkg beer to a whole new level. Land van Mortagne was already enormous, but this takes it to a new direction. Couleur bordeaux, acajou voire pourpre sur un col léger beige. Le tout donne un bouquet énorme de Pomerol dont les notes de vin sont accompagnées par un malt caramélisé qcq sucres résiduels. En bouche, on reconnaît là ce mélange de barrique de chêne français et américain avec un Pomerol divin laissant un profile de vin chaud, sucré prendre le dessus tout en laissant à la bière toute sa place pour se développe. Palais reste doux sucré avec de brèves notes aigres fruitées de grappes de raisins qui rajoutent un plus, cela se note aussi en fin de bouche. Se boit lentement, se déguste à t°avec des vagues de raisin, de vin de cerise caramélisés qui attaquent le palais le tout est réchauffant donnant des notes de vin sur un léger boisé. Vraiment une bière de dessert à boire avec un bon morceau de chocolat.

Bottle @ ZBF 2012 // dark brown going to black with close ton of head // smell is quite sweet & malt heavy, caramel, dark fruits, I am getting really gravy on this (vleesjus) // taste is gravy (definitely there in an amazing way), sweet, chocolate, thick malts, caramel, dark fruits, hints of liquorish & syrup, wood,… warming sure but boozy no // slick, substantial body, low carb. , definitely a sipper / would have preferred this at home as opposed to a festival but excellent & among best things Alvinne (probably best) has done so far

jaghana (4017) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUN 5, 2013
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. Extreamly nice and creamy caramel like beer with vanilla and wood notes, lot of prune and figs, dark malt, toffee. Delicious red fruit notes, rich, smooth and complex, a dream.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Wow! Right away similar to Westy and Rochfort. Only double strength! 14% very well hidden. Taste is fabulous with really outstanding nutty flavor. Big cherry and almond, rich butterscotch. Fruitcake. Musty wood, oak, spices. Slick in the mouth. This is an in your face Quad. A bit too strong but packed with flavor.

JorisPPattyn (7970) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 7, 2012
Short-lived cream-pink coloured head over deep brown beer with a foxy sheen. Very fruity nose, part cherry, part sugared preserved cherries, roses-flowery. Quite vinous in character, as sweet dessert wine, if a red one. Still sweet, but with a bitterish woody streak. Fruity, with a little sourish edge, which brings it to a superb balance. Again red wine like, if way less sweet than suggested by the nose; Retronasal something like old carpets, but much nicer than that sounds. Very slick, medium to well-bodied, serious alcoholwarming. Aftertaste has again a sweet cherry & roseflavour. Great balance. Arguably the most complex beer Alvinne ever succeeded.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle from Nuetnigenough, Brussels
Dark brown color with quite a lot of sediment; creamy head. Some aroma of alcohol, prunes, chocolate; fresh and inviting, delicate. Good body strength, with smooth mouthfeel, also because of the high carbonation; roasted malt flavor and chocolate, rich, with light accents of red wine, and correct bitterness.
It combines in a very elegant way te chocolate and the red wine characters.
Deep, intense, complex and well blended. Highly interesting.

Lukaduke (2243) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 22, 2013
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 !

Martinus (2892) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2012
Black colour, very little head. Aroma of roasted malts, red wine, port and chocolate. Rather dry, red wine flavour, astringent, vanilla. Dry, astringent finish. Quite lovely.
Definitely amongst the top beers served at Zythos. Nice one!

Keg @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s completely still reddish brown. No head, not bubbles. The nose is spple, spiced mulled wine, some cocoa posder and red fruits. Te taste is sweet liquid cotton candy, some spiced fruits, more mulled wine and caramel. Hints of red grape and rich rotting wood (in a good way). Diverse, complex palate. Soft, very drinkable. Wow, what a beer. One of the best of the festival. Complex, rewarding character.
