Im not sure why this is rated as so low. I think its fantastic. It expires 12/2014 so it could be two years old. Will have to check on that. Deep mahogany orangey brown with a frothy lacy, off-white head that settles to a thin ring. Smells of a sweet liquorice, and heavy malt, caramel and sugar with soft roast, soft spice and raisin. Medium to full smooth oily palate. Natural sweetness or raisin and liquorish and malt and finishes with a soft bitter slightly roast dry finish with just a hint of sourness. Excellent balance and warms my tummy. No taste of alcohol.

Fluxing (561) - POLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Winterbier 2014. Kolor bordowy, idealnie klarowne. Piana niska, ale bardzo kremowa, mocno oblepia szklo. W aromacie duzo slodu, melasy, pianek, karmelu, ciemnych owocow, syropu kandyzowanego, miety, przypraw, migdalow, bardzo intensywny i bardzo slodki aromat. W odczuciu pelne, oleiste, wysoko wysycone. W smaku sporo slodyczy, karmelu, orzechow wloskich, przypraw, troche chleba, jest tez sporo alkoholu, ktory balansuje slodycz pianek. Goryczka niska, ziemista i mietowa.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2010 this Winterbier had a strong aura and rich, comforting texture. You can feel the booze getting you blitized and being your friend :
Caramel , stickiness, spicy bittering hops..esters ,oranges . Luv this kinda Belgian(style ale) m cause its not even trying to wow and does in a mellow, rich ,eazy buzz.

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!

Quad bordering on barley wine, and really it's more the latter. Syrupy, strong sugar caramel/toffee notes. Quite boozy, and yet only 9%. B- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - FEB 12, 2013
Bruna-mogano con una discreta schiuma mediamente persistente. Aroma di frutti di bosco poi piano piano emergono anche altri sentori facendosi via via pi 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 miscelato molto bene, e dona alla birra un buon carattere e corpo. Ottima e complessa ma mai difficile da bere. Ottima. Ultima cosa: sembra pi una Belgian Strong Ale che una Quadrupel.

Countbeer (5500) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2011
Draft @ PWBF11: Light brown to yellow-ish lacing. Dark amber brown colored beer. A very soft smell of mostly butter and with hints of toffee, wine-ish, caramel and malts. Taste is also very soft, a mix of spices, liquorice, dark fruits, hint of prunes, light bitter and sweet and some hops. Soft mouthfeel, mid body and low carbo.
