Beer4000 (4828) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2012
On draft @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. Murky brown body with a small beige head. Nice aroma of malt and chocolate with some acidity. Flavor has a fine balance between sweetness and acidity, quite sweet, but does not feel sticky in the mount. Taste of dark malt, caramel, chocolate, a hint of vinegar and warming alcohol, more alcohol in the aftertaste. Full body. This is a really tasty and complex brew.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2012
0,5 L bottle. An unclear deep reddish brown body, under a ring of sand-colored bubbles. Sweet dark caramel and dark dried fruits to the nose. Some barrel notes and faint alcohol too. More than medium full. Thick and juicy in the mouth. Rich malt flavor. Sweet, with burnt caramel and jammy dark fruits. Distinct barrel notes, and a good amount of bittering hops in the backbone. Warming, rich bitter-sweet aftertaste. A balanced, tasty, and dangerously easy drinkable Quad.

yngwie (14703) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle, at HaandFestival 2012. It pours a more or less black body, at least dark, dark brown, and is topped by a finger-thick beige head. The aroma has less alcohol than I’d expect from the ABV level, with some oak, dark berries, caramel and roased malts. Sweet and warming on the palate, wtih caramel, berries, some roasted malts and a hint of something reminiscent of pancakes. Full body, finishing bitter and warming, with a pleasant sweetness. Overall, too warm and sweet, but it’s a complex and tasteful beer anyway. 120504

Boutip (4999) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2012
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dark brown color ale with medium size foamy head with average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malt based with lots of residual sugar and some dry fruit s notes with some easily discernable woody notes and light vinous feel. Taste is also dominated by some woody notes with a big sweet malt base with toffee and dry fruits notes. The red wine notes are also easily discernable without being too tart. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation with not much alcohol being apparent. Complex but also a bit too sweet to appreciate a large quantity of that liquid.

Yves (2441) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2013
Brown coloured beer with small white head and no carbonation. Fruity alcoholic malty oak wine hinted aroma. Full palate. Finish is fruity dry alcoholic malty bitter. Minor, bit too much taste of alcohol.

PriorL (2422) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 7, 2013
Found back tasting notes from Borets Festival 2012. Only putting them in now. APPEARANCE: dark brown beer, unstable head. Very flat. NOSE: lots of sweetness, some wood. TASTE: little too flat, quite sweet, alcohol is noticeable, drinks away like a nice sweet wine!

Tons of dark fruits, quite vinous, tannic, oak adds some subtley. A nice one in this series.

Bottle shared at Craft Clerko, from thanks to Paulo - he had 5 guys the other night apparently ! 25/10/13. Lightly hazed chestnut brown with a thin light beige covering. Nose is dark fruits, toffee, oaky wood, tarte fruit notes, red wine, jammy soured berry mash. Taste comprises brown sugars, jammy fruit, booze soaked oak, red wine streak, dark tofffee. Full bodied, fine carbonation, light warming alcohol in the finish. Decent enough Quad, could not believe this was a 14% big boy - very well integrated.

Torrefacto (767) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 26, 2013
Color caoba oscuro, reflejos rojizos muy tupido. Espuma color crema. Aromas de frutas confitadas, licor, naranja. En boca es de sabor potente y densos con trazos dulces y afrutados que se completa con t¡rasgos ácidos. Muy rica, pero no parece una belga, casi me recuerda más a una barley wine.
