3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle, brought back from the UK by Matts_Property, pours a deep dark amber brown with a small-to-medium tan head. Aroma of caramel malts, brown sugar, candied sugar, some dried fruits and toasted bread. Flavour of Belgian yeast, toasted bread, sweet caramelized malts, a bit of the dried fruits and an alcohol burn. The flavours sort of become muted toward the end, leaving a dry toasted bread and semi-sweet finish. Not very complex for a quad. Decent, but lacking and seemingly uninspired.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Kihoskh, Cph.
Pour is deep red-brown with a fizzy, off-white head that soon disappears. Aroma is lovely complex. Lots of raisins, plums, mild tobacco, dark chocolate, sweet Belgian sugars. Low carbonation, great creamy and light oily mouthfeel. Flavour is vinous, slightly harsh, good fruitiness, lots of plums, caramel, light dark chocolate. Fine bitterness at the end. This is a very good example of a Quad, but there is a slight harshness that detracts if compared to the ’real’ Belgians.
