4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dobry quadrupel, niewatpliwie, piekna bezowa piana, moze nie za wielka i niezbyt trwala ale puszysta. Kolor brazowo ciemny z lekkimi fioletowymi refleksami. W zapachu suszone sliwki i daktyle. W smaku takze slodowosc bierze gore i smak suszonych owocow. Nieco tortowego ciasta na koniec. Alkohol trohe wyczuwalnu ale ukryty. Skromna butelka z prosta etykieta.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very dark brown, unclear. Beige head, rapidly fading. Sweet in the nose. Taste is sweet with a bitter aftertaste that reminds me of a raisin with the stem still on it (in my memory this stem is bitter) (this is not a bad thing by the way, well it is when eating a raisin, but it guys the beer well.) Maybe itís more like clove...anyway, itís a good strong brew!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark coloured, 1cm head which subsides. Rich smell, sweet. Full bodied, slightly creamy/oily. Taste is like the smell, some dried fruits, the strong alcohol comes out in the finish, a little sharp, but otherwise put me in mind of a nice porter or stout. Satisfying to drink.
