Bruna-mogano con una discreta schiuma mediamente persistente. Aroma di frutti di bosco poi piano piano emergono anche altri sentori facendosi via via più complessa. Naso che tuttavia rimane incentrato sui caratteri dolci della frutta di bosco e zucchero di canna con una leggera influenza di luppolo. Al palato ingresso dolce, fruttato, caramellato, alcolico con un sottofondo amaro di liquirizia che sembra quasi "tracimare" nel cioccolatoso. Il tutto è miscelato molto bene, e dona alla birra un buon carattere e corpo. Ottima e complessa ma mai difficile da bere. Ottima. Ultima cosa: sembra più una Belgian Strong Ale che una Quadrupel.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is caramel, molasses and some spice. Flavour is caramel, some roast, molasses, touch of sharp spice. Good beer, but not really my thing.

MrHangover (2452) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown, murky beer with a decent amount of off white head on top. Aroma is very spicy, yeasty and has definitely characters of licorice and kandi sugar. Flavour is very sweet, but not artificial. Nice malty backbone, accompannied by some sugary sweetnesss. Again some licorice returns in the flavour, making this a very warming beer for in winter storms. Nice brew, but not the best quad I’ve head thusfar.

Hanaversio reitattu. Kaatuu lasiin ruskeana, sameana ja käytännössä vaahdottomana. Haju on ennen kaikkea mausteinen ja tumman marjainen. Siitä löytyy myös rusinaa ja raakaa banaania sekä makeutta. Maku on vahvan mausteinen. Sitä tukee tumma hedelmä, marja, rusina ja luumu. Myös sopivaa siirappisuutta on joukossa. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen-, hiilihappoa ja humalaakin on melko hillitysti. Mausteinen belgityylinen ale, jossa ei ole virheitä, mutta ei toisaalta mitään yllätyksiäkään.

Thx. to tderoeck (Tim) for sharing this one // 33 cl. bottle sampled @ Tim’s De Molen & assorted beers tasting // brown amber, light woody colour, nearly no head // smell is sweet syrup, touch molasses, hint cola, strong Christmas spices, yeasty // taste is sweet syrup, herbs, molasses, lots of Christmas spices, dark fruits, sticky, yeast, some banana // sticky but not heavy body // I am thinking winter warmer of which I am not the biggest fan but this is not bad
