ogivlado (6984) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 14, 2016
Bottled 750ml. -Courtesy of franski, shared with him, Marko and kajser27. Muddy dark brown coloured, minimal head that went away within two seconds, alcohol, raisins and wood in the nose. Heavy oak, caramel, raisins, notes of alcohol and chestnut with almost sticky like alcohol finish. Quite complex and enjoyable quad. And yes the appearance isn’t representative but the beer...hell yeah is.

kajser27 (1075) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 8, 2016
Shared with Marko, ogivlado and franski. Hazy, dark red to brown colored, no head, looks like a juice or shake. Aroma is very fruity, raisins, some caramel and toffee, woody, bit vinous. Taste is medium to very sweet caramel and dried fruity, quite strong oak woody notes, toffee, bit vinous, light nutty, medium- herbal bitterness, boozy and warming. Full bodied, flat, sticky. Very enjoyable, sipping quality, a shame it looks like a horse... (bottle, Svijet Piva, Zagreb)

Marko (4646) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 7, 2016
Bottled 22.8.2014 after two years in oak barrels according to the sticker, covering the embossed text saying it was bottled in June 2012. oh well, reused bottles I guessed... or they decided to age it instead of bottling. Who cares. Thanks franski! Shared with him, kajser and ogivlado. No head, muddy chestnut (dark brown) body. Huge raisiny oak in the aroma, full and sweet without being cloying. Big vanilla too. Vague alcohol. Yaaaay! Damn pungent. Taste... flat sweet oaky body, huge raisins, more vanilla, actually lighter than expected, the consistency/drinkability is juice-like, could damn well fool you. Wow. Some dry sticky malty notes later on. Some tropical fruit in the finish/aftertaste, damn if I know where from. No carbonation, but fuck, it doesn’t need it. This tastes awesome, just awesome, easily over a 4 if it didn’t look this bad, vaguely, just some vague herbal notes, vague alcohol. Ah, this is so close to world class... oh well.

Alengrin (4077) - BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2014
Very heavy quadrupel named after a mediëval saint; in 75 cl bottles with paper wrapped around it, but print on the bottle itself as well. Off-white, coarse, thin, unstable head, mostly after a certain amount of forcing; very dark ruby colour, almost blackish; powerful sweet and perfumed aroma of chocolate liqueur, cocoa powder, overripe pear, candied dates, ’speculoos’, blackcurrant, plum wine, banana, raisins, candi syrup, cognac, cloves, liquorice, port wine. Very sweet, almost Coke-like onset, dark fruits, chocolatey, smooth and mellow, low carbo, vinous, deep caramelly and chocolatey maltiness, yeasty, some ethereal spices, mild peppery hop bitterishness in the finish with liqueurish, warming alcohol, a bit tingling but not too wry. Rich and complex quadrupel, but perhaps a tad too sweet.
