3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
As always im abit skeptic tasting a non belgian abbey ale. And with good reason i think. This one is hazy dark brown with a nice dense brown head. Aroma has some ripe fruity phenols, but its pretty far from the belgian ones in that they arent as intense, complex and smooth. The fruit is backed up by a rather big amount of hard roasted malt, and oc alchohol. Flavor is sugery sweet and actually more roasted bitter than sweet, with notes of dark chocolate and liquirice. I really like the beer, but i find it very different from the belgian abt which i enjoy even more.

Very dark brown beer with a nice big head, holds ok. Chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, mostly sweetness, slightly bitter roasted malts and hops. Better then expected.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 59 cl from erzbierschof.ch. Brown very dark, brownish and rough foam bad looking. Nose of caramel, molasses, alcohol. Very sweetened taste, round and syrupy, chocolate, dry fruits, madeira, liquor-like and doped with candy. Too much residual sugars, limit of the sickness. Beer without class, just like the label. Grave et sine praestantia cervesia.

Thanks Hopscotch for the share, lovely label.
Nose is faint traces of what should make up a good (to me) quad, raisins and brown sugar and figs, but also alcohol presence. But you have to dig for the good, and the alcohol is a bit much. The taste is a bit muddled on the palate, some ambiguous sweet flavors, and a kind of oddly dry/bitter finish. Meh.

Pours a clear dark amber with a small tan head. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, dark dried fruits, alcohol and toast. Taste is caramel, plums, raisins, dates, brown sugar and a nice alcohol warming on the finish. High carbonation on the mouth... Complex, rich, smooth and easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma has lots of sweetness. Candied berries, dried fruits, caramel, belgian yeasts, hints of cinnamon, and fresh bakes cake. Taste is not as sweet as the aroma, it also has some darker malts with dried fruits more evident. Dark sugars and caramel. Very heavy and the alcohol is also notable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark and murky red color with some brown notes and a smalll tan head. Aroma is of dark fruit, a general breadiness, yeast and some spice. Flavor is quite bready with bready notes that reminds me of rye bread, along with that i get alot of dark fruit like dades and figs, along with some brown sugar, alot of sweet maltiness, somekind of general berry note, yeast and spice. I like how well the 10% alcohol is hidden. The body is medium to full with a fairly dry mouthfeel. Overall a pretty nice Quad!

pours a very dark prown with a small brown head. Stuff in here is a big malt profile, dark sweet dried fruits, caramel, yeast, spices and some fruits (I kinda got some banana thoughts). Reminded me alot of the Rochefort 10.
