#100USA Nydelig duft av frukter og karamell. Dunkel gulbrun farge. Mye brunt skum som forsvinner raskt, ring langs kant. Nydelig smak av rosin, krydder og karamell. Noe kullsyre.

Floral hops. Pours cloudy orange with good head and lacing. Huge floral yeast aroma with some citrus light plum and some raisin. Finishes flowery sweet. Had this at a Vietnamese restaurant. Decent package, bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep amber color with a fluffy beige head. Big sweet nose of candi sugar and alcohol. Sweet caramel flavors with more sugar, white raisins, plum, some yeast and lots of blooming alcohol. Not as complex as some of the trappist quads. Very sweet and boozy as it warms.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bomber bottle. Pours a cloudy, dark amber-brown. Off-white, foamy head. Strong smell of alcohol and a bit of caramel. Pretty strong. This quad is in the belgian tradition, but not quite as flavorful and a bit more bubbly than the Chimay, St Bernardus varieties. A good beer for a domestic US, however.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Pear Delicatessen & Shoppe, Seattle, bb 04/12/15
The bottle is a slow gusher, it pours a cloudy red-amber color with frothy head, and some floaties. The aroma presents some malt, sugar, vegetables (cabbage) and light fruity esters; not convincing. Good body strength, moderately sweet, with smooth mouthfeel; candyish malt flavor, with light fruity esters, more evident vegetables, ordinary bitterness, and some yeast astringency in the final; it also has a light alcohol feeling.

From the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle marked Batch no. 613081-2-03-2015. It is an attractive looking medium mahogany amber pour with a quick lived cream colored head. Good clarity. The aroma has a full malt character to it along with a tart cherry-fruit like substance and some yeast wrapped around all of it. The body is medium to full with a sharp sort of astringency to it. Pungent malty-cherry taste with an explosive and dry hop afterbite. Vaguely boozy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Frothy yellow head atop a deep brown body. Boozy nose. Flavour of smoke, burnt caramel and bourbon. I like the smoke on this one, as it makes the Quad more bearable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Blind quad test against Westvleteren 12, Pannepeut, Rochefort 10, St Bernardus 12, St Amatus 12, Pannepot, & Chimay Blue My prefered order was; Pannepot, Rochefort 10, St Amatus 12, Westvleteren 12, St Bernardus, Pannepeut, Sixth Glass and last Chimay.
Pours much brighter than other quads. Aroma is light plum, some yeast, some alcohol. Taste is quite sweet, alcohol is there, a lot of raisin and plum, candy sugar, some faint citrus hop input. Too carbonated, a bit too boozy, and just not enough to be interesting.
