I think this was called a Belgian Strong Ale just because its a super malty drink. I think its more of a porter. Anyway. Deep brown with a red tint and a thick, lasting, lacy, head. Deep heavy malt, dark berries, roast, Worcestershire sauce, caramel, chocolate and dark malt with brown sugar. Full oily smooth warming body with no carbonation. Tastes of liquorish and berries under a full coat of malt and sweet caramel, chocolate and nice soft spices on the bidder finish. Another great beer from De Molen

Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2013
33cl. dickflüssiges, leicht alkoholisches Aroma. Antrunk schwer und dickflüssig. Karamell, Malzbonbon, dabei eine leicht penetrante Alkoholnote. Zum Hauptteil kommt eine nett harmonierende Hopfenaromatik dazu, schön ausgewogene Bitterkeit, die super mit dem Karamell harmoniert. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang, sehr lang, röstmalzig-verbrannt, karamellig-süß, aber nicht zu süß, ganz leicht herb. --> Tolles Bier, wäre nicht diese deutliche Alkoholnote! 12/11/12/12

Idiosynkrasie (5328) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2013
330ml bottle. Red glowing nut brown colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Intense fruity aroma has notes of red and dark berries, especially red and black currant, cherries, raisin, plum, a dry touch of fruit parings. Taste is minimally to moderately sweet red wine-like fruity, notes of grapes, cherries, red and dark berries, plum, minimally dry hoppy with a touch of fruit parings; prickling carbonation. Extremely intense fruity - wow! Would be on one level with Rochefort 10 and Westy 12 if it was more yeasty.

Staffan47 (898) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2013
Flaskad 04/08/2011 vilket är relevant information när dom sålt ut sig fullständigt och totalt raserat i kvalitet senaste åren. Den här är bra. Som en av de bättre belgiska quadrupple. Mörk och skitig färg. Oerhört krämig. Lite lagom kandisötma. Tungt maltfundament

Foffern (1497) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle at home. Two years old. Pours a deep nut brown to black colour with a beige creamy medium head. Fantastic head! Malty aroma of dreid fruit, nuts, caramel, alcohol wood, cocoa and roasted malt in the end. The flavour has more leather and in addition licorice and hops. Still some sweetness lingering in the back. Has a rich and slick mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A well-balanced, complex, and multilayered ale. Easy-drinking in a way.

kraddel (4961) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2013
bottle at home , 13-02-2011 pours very dark copper, good , very lightbrown head. smell is best to be described as ’metallic ’ (dont know, if this might be infected, but its metallic in a way , it could actualy be the real scent. it sounds worse than it is ) good/ bit to high carbo, but this IS tastefull shit ! eathy, sweet, , very sweet actualy. i even get ... a cherry-like touch in it , reminding of a vlaams-oud-bruin a bit ... rating number somewhere beginning of 900, and no idea how to describe this taste. i’m a hitty rater, who drinks to good beers i gues ... but tell you what, i WILL have this again, as i love it way , way more than i thought i’d do . so hopefully , by than, i can describe the taste a bit more. but up untill than, this tastes : awsome ! very, very complex. a mix between a vlaams oud bruin / abbey dubble / quadruppel . waaw... impressed

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2013 This beer has a warm and malty smell. In the taste there is dark chocolate bitter touches, with roasted malts. It gives the beer a full bodied taste, which feels soft and sweet in the mouth. The beer reminds me a bit of the rochefort 10, my favorite quadruppel. so overall i found it a good quadruppel, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

czar (6211) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2013
bottle shared (and saved) by tom10101 (from potential DP), thanks! pours very dark brown with a minimal beige head (had been sitting for at least one hour). dark caramel and raisins, very spicy - maybe anisseed, strong woodsy and old port notes, sweet red grapes, cloying red port. complex. soft carbonation (then again, it counter-stayed for an hour), medium to full body - heavy stuff, bittering grassy-spicy but still cloying finish.
