Holmen2 (2914) - NORWAY - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 17.11.14. Clear copper. Dense beige head. Aroma of cherry compote, prune compote and roasted nuts. Similar taste and aftertaste. A bit of fizziness at start also makes it an easily drinkable ale.

_angst_ (4553) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle bought @ Kihoskh. Pours tiny hazy reddish brown with a rather small frothy and bubbly goldenish beige head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet and fruity with sweet dark bread, caramel, raisins, moist wood, soil, hay, St Johns wort and caramelized orange peal. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, slightly malty and fruity with sweet dark bread, caramel, cereal, banana, raisins, liquorice root, moist wood, orange peal and ash. Mouthfeel is round, tiny astringent, tiny sparkling and medium bodied. Finish is sweet, bitter and fruity with sweet dark bread, raisins, hay, soil, bread spices and orange peal. Quite allright...

slowrunner77 (10231) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 19, 2014
"sweet sweet sweet, but very drinkable for an 8% beer. there is still a slight bitter finish from the hops, but only in the finish. mouthfeel is thick and a little sticky. not one of their best, but pretty good anyway. 6/09-more belgian beet sugar in the nose and flavor as it warms. same rating."

Luvystypotables (1688) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Aroma of grapes and raisins. Cloudy brown color with virtually no head. An unpleasant taste of sugary sweet malt, with a dry feel and an unpleasant sugary chalk finish. A highly over rated beer.

Nocturne (1833) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2014
355ml bottle. Dark copper, bordering on brown. Head quickly recedes to a thin covering. Aroma is cocoa, plum, faint red fruits, still fainter spices and a touch of smoke. Taste is leather, chocolate, sticky fruits. Slightly syrupy feel to it. Good approximation of a Belgian, but not as good as the real thing.

adster (683) - HUNGARY - SEP 4, 2014
A Dogfish Head újabb gyöngyszemének mély mahagóni színe belga quadrupelek illatát idézi, voltaképpen egy igazi piknikkosár kandiscukros fügével, mazsolával, kékszőlővel és keksszel. Az előbbiek folyékony kivitele is igen megnyerő, a keret pedig, melyben testet ölt a komponensek szövetsége, elképesztően sima, krémes és árnyalt. Maláta, barnacukor, csonthéjas termések és túlérett banános ízek egyvelege, melyek olyannyira elegánsan simulnak össze egy likőrös halmazba, hogy egy cseppet sem tűnik émelyítőnek, eltúlzottnak a végeredmény. Valódi specialitás, ami magán hordozza a vörösborok jellemvonásait is, összességében azonban mégis a belga erős ale-ek családjába tartozik, a műfajteremtő darabok némelyikétől egy fokkal talán még kifinomultabb karakterrel.
