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.

75cl bottle, shared with 77ships, Martinus and Tderoeck. Thanks Tim. BB 06/2014. Cuivrée-trouble, col beige fin. Arôme est fruité noir, malt caramel,pointe de toffee, et une présence ester donnant une fine note de banane. Palais est malté avec le même côté fruité noir, levure épaisse, ester gardant ce profil de bouche belge et style abbaye. Sur la fin, une fine touche d’épices, le tout laissant percer un léger côté aigre fruité sur la fin.

Dark mahogany pour with a khaki head. Moderate spiciness on the nose, caramel malt, toffee, and brown sugar. Some notes of banana, dark fruit, and a little bit of roasted malt. Tastes mostly of brown sugar, caramel, and dark fruit with a decent roasted quality to it. Some banana, a mild spice quality, and a hint of yeast.

nuplastikk (4750) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 21, 2012
11.16 bottle. Murky, opaque burgundy-red. Smooth on the palate, classic quality Danish feel. Malt and yeast forward, with some raisiny chocolate tones. Really balanced, quite a well executed beer. I can deal with this one being caled a Quad, as it really does capture all those big malty, fruity flavors..but also retains a really creamy, smooth body. Great beer!
