3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 0.75 ltr (BB 01/2007).
Hazy very dark nut brown color, good off-white head. Nose has some sour notes, dark fruits and hazelnut. Sticky mouthfeel, sugary sweetness - thanks to added sugar. Flavor has some spices, nuts (maybe from chocolate malts) and plums. Warming and full. Propably evolves with time.

This could well pass for a flandern sour ale (although below par). Lots of sourness in this one along with some nuts and even a bit of sweetness. Iíll rate it slightly high just for "unusualness".

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Aroma of yeast, raisin, spices and a hint of plastic. Hazy, red color, small beige head, good lace. Plum, prune, raisin, pretty sweet, rather bitter, lots of hops, spices. Full, sticky, warming. A very nice beer, not complex, a bit one dimensional. Maybe it matures well? Luckily I have a bottle from 2002 as well. Iíll try that later.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bought a bottle at this sympathetic brewery. They told me that this is a Quadrupel-style beer.
I didnít quite know what to expect but it was pretty good. Very nice darkbrown appearance, lasting and creamy head. Dark fruits are well represented in this brew. This certainly had character. And quality. Strong mouthfeel, bit alcoholic palate. Didnít bother me at all. Excellent brew!

Pretty sweet tasting ale. Malty and yeasty. Did not produce a head at all. Was a bit disappointed.
