onceblind (6112) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Murky brownish dark copper with no head, even when poured with a bit of vigour. Plum and raisin and dark belgian chewy malts on the nose, a bit of cinnamon-raisin bagel, and sugary plum. Rich, sumptuous flavor with plum, raisin, date, a touch of dark cherry, loads of sugary bready tones, some dark belgian malts and dark belgian candy sugar; quite fruity and full, with just a sublime booze heat on the stone fruity sweet finish. Christmas Eve in a glass.

Bottled. Pours hazy brown with an average off-white head. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit, yeast and a hint of smoke. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with a little bitterness.. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice Quad.

Muggus69 (1685) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2015
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector 2014 vintage. BB 12 2016 Pours a near-opaque bronze body, with a small ring of tan head. Aroma is rich - dark sugars, dried fruits, Candi sugar earthiness, roast nuts, port-like undertones. Thick stuff, chewy, creamy, subdued carbonation, very rich. Big dark sugar sweetness, porty dried fruits,, savoury spices, dates and prunes, nuts and caramels. Moderate bitterness, smooth luscious finish. Rather rich, delicious.

alteregoo (480) - POLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Piana znikoma, sycząca, po kilkunastu sekundach znika praktycznie do zera, barwa błotnisto brązowo brunatna, mocno mętna. Aromat toffi, karmel, suszone gruszki, daktyle, figi i rodzynki w alkoholu, go tego kandyzowana papaja oraz oczywiście pianki marshmallow (a może autosugestia?). W smaku słodkie, owocowe, połączenie kompotu z suszonych owoców z likierem karmelowym. Goryczka niska, głogowa, alkohol obecny, niedrażniący. Odczucie w ustach lekko wyklejające i treściwe, ale za to nagazowanie średnie, bardzo drobne, klujące w język i dodające nieco rześkości. W posmaku wino domowe i przejrzałe owoce cytrusowe, może banan oraz przyprawy korzenne. Jako Quadrupel nie do końca zbalansowane piwo, jako świąteczne za mało przyprawowe i wyraziste, jako ciekawostka z dodatkiem marshmallow za mało pianek... Raczej średnio udane piwo, mimo że bez wad.

martjoobolut (1924) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 29, 2015
bottle, 2014 vintage (from beergium.com). Pours red copper with beige head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is very sweet, caramel, fruits, malt. Flavor is sweet, malt, caramel, candi sugar, some spices and fruits. Finish is mellow burnt sugar bitterness with hint of alcohol. Overall: very basic quad, but I kind of like it.

Shark_Pants (504) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2015
2014 vintage. Deep hazy red pour into my tulip glass with small yellow-beige head. Sweet candi sugar aromas, with caramel, marshmallow, booze, spicy phenols, very lightly grassy. The taste definitely has a strong candi sugar hit straight away, with almost a rye spiciness, then the grassy bitterness comes in and then a burnt caramel and marshmallow flavour and light smokiness. Warming alcohol. The grassy bitterness lingers. Full bodied and slick. Quite enjoyable but I would?ve liked just a little less grassiness.
