Bottle at Kulminator (Antwerp, Belgium)
Dark brown, with a lasting head. Took a while to pour. Sweet fruit on the nose...like apricots, raisins, dates. Taste is fruity, sweet, caramel, butterscotch. Medium body. A slightly dry and sour finish. I have yet to be disappointed by De Molen.

ShivanDragon (3155) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2015 mooi zwart, met normale bruine kraag.
aroma: kandij suiker, chocolade, caramout, gebrande mouten.
smaak: moutig, peperig, gist, kruidnagel, koffie, chocolade, donker fruit, karamel. ondanks de redelijke moutigheid een zeer fijne smaak
indruk: de smaken zijn zeer goed op elkaar afgestemd, het moutige karakter vlakt af in een heerlijke zachte moutige/kruidige afdronk die tevens droog en iets lichtbitter is.
uitstekend Edit 2-1-2015. Hmmm smaken vallen nu iets tegen, rating van 4.4 aangepast naar 4

warenik (4) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 3, 2013 does not count
Gorgeous red-purple appearance, far too much toffee-colored head, cognac nose, bitter black currant and brandied cherries in an alcoholic wet dream. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ughsmash (7507) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2013
11.2oz bottle. Poured clear garnety-brown with a short, dense beige head.. set up nicely in the glass. The aroma picked up an interesting blend of dry-roasted chocolate, raisins, and dates, with warm fruit and some berries as it warmed.. it somehow made its way back to chocolate on the back of the nose. The flavor found a heavier dose of spiced dark fruits than the nose indicated, with chocolate and a little vanilla down deep.. berry seeds and light cocoa bitterness on the edges.. finished with a good blend of spicy, fruity Belgian yeast and chocolate. Medium-bodied and spicy on the palate.. higher carbonation.. there was a lot going on here, and I really enjoyed it.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2013
11.2 oz bottle. Dark brown with a huge, though hastily poured, tannish head. Nose is apricot, apple and cherry preserves. Medium body, a touch foamy, slightly sticky. Taste is applesauce, candi and dried apricot. Just like drinking fruit nectar. Incredibly addictive.

nimbleprop (7176) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2012
12oz bottle pours a nearly opaque deep, dark mahogany brown with one ring of creamy beige head. Aroma is very boozy, prunes, raisins, rum, malt, orange peel, Belgian candy sugar, some rubber. Flavor is sweet, astringent, malt, medicinal, herbal, a little spicy too. This is really all over the map. Flavors of ancho chiles, black peppercorns, raisins, prunes, toasted bread, butter scotch candies, burnt caramel, black tea. Full, sweet but also a very peppery finish. Belgian Strong Ale? Sure, but if you told me this was a Belgian stout I would have believed it. A little messy, could probably keep in the cellar for a lot longer.

mabel (8537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2012
[4812-20120921] 750mL bottle. Roasted funky yeast aroma has an unpleasant pungent doggy diarrhea note at first. Murky, black brown body with a huge long-lasting head, gusher to start. Lightly soured grainy roasted old fruit flavour. Full body has quite a tangy almost sour base. Initial impression was Terrible, worse than I’ve written, but it eventually mellowed. Is this bottle ok? (3/3/5/3/10) 2.4

tonaca di frate scura velata con 2 dita di schiuma cappuccino fine e di buona durata e allacciatura. malto tostato caramello cioccolato e frutta secca in bocca ha buon corpo oleosa bassa carbonazione ancora malto e caramello,leggero caffe e cioccolato,zuccherina.Il finale vira sulla liquirizia non invadente leggero tocco amaro sul finale.Alcool abbastanza evidente in effetti come molti dicono è un misto di belgian strong e imperial stout comunque ben fatta e piacevole

maekchu (3351) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle. Thanks to mike12da. Tons of yeast, malt, chocolate, and fumes in the nose. Thick dark brown. Big chocolate initial; slight metallic note in mid, along with a soft powdery chocolate; final extends the sweet choco, with some balancing. Smooth mouthfeel. Impregnated with chocolate, more so than most quads. Great stuff.
