3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pours deep brownand nearly black with a red glow and a medium sized, creamy, beige head. Fair lacings. Nose of dark dried fruits, brown sugar and yeasty notes. Flavour of dark dried fruits, brown sugar and licorice notes. Averge carbonation. Full bodied. Creamy texture. Ends up more dry with an alcohol touch too. Great and very simular to a real Belgian quadrupel.

Sampled @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2011 from a 0.5l bottle. Pours a dark brown body with a thin fading beige head. Sweet aroma with some licorice, dried fruits, some chocolate and it’s quite hopy. Lively carbonated, has an fizzing mouthfeeling and medium-bodied. Light sweet flavors, some brown sugar and more dried fruits. Ends with a mild alcohol finish and a pepperish aftertaste.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a gluggy black with a small tan head. Loads of chocolate and belgian yeast on the nose. Heaps of chocolate cocoa and fudge like characteristics in this one. Has a very liquorice like finish. Good beer

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dubiously satirical bottle. Pretty much black with a light tan head that lasts. Quite surprising. Aroma of soy sauce, treacle, raisins, figs, prunes. Syrupy mouthfeel with low carbonation. Sweet, bitter and salty, with dried fruits, singed toffee, spices, quite a lot of bitterness. Soy sauce less prominent than the first whiff suggested. Obviously strong, but not much heat from the alcohol - just a little with some sweet shop spices at the end. Not much like strong dark Belgian beers and kind of crude, but compelling.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating #2300. 500ml brown bottle. Deep brown, rapidly receding tan head. Nose has fruit notes of raisin, cherry also some caramel, cola and chocolate malt. Taste has dark fruit and dark chocolate. Some roast/dark malt and hop bitterness at the end. Light hops in the aftertaste, bit of smooth alcohol and dark fruits. Big body. A well put together quad that drinks easily for it’s strength.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fad: Brun uklar øl med et tæt skumhoved. Duft af tørrede frugt og blomster fra duft. Mundfylden er udmærket med let karbonation. Lidt ung i sit udtryk, men meget drikbar. Alkoholen er fuldstændig skjult, gæren er ikke så dominerende. Fin øl men mangler en lille smule for at være helt oppe at ringe.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Almost black colored pour. Large tan head that slowly falls away. Plenty of lacing left behind. Chocolate, raisin, and sugar aroma. Slight bit of earthy yeastiness as well. Taste is awesome. Big raisin, prune, some chocolate and vanilla. Sweet, almost barleywine like. Hint of alcohol, but it is really well hidden. This is way better than I thought it would be.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 50cl. Buttery aroma which is reminiscent of dried fruit, plums, banana and candy sugar. Full bodied. Buttery taste too. I was quite dissapointed by this Abt.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Muddy, murky brown. Headless, oily legs. Heavy set savoury fruit nose. Yeasty, bready, burnt toast and vinous, thick, liqueurish stone fruit with just a hint of spice. Soapy, light body. Remarkably light. Sticky, bitter/sweet raisin and sultana finish. Pleasant but bland.
