Absolutely fantastic. Sweet fruity aromas like cherry and raisins blended with gooey caramel and spice. Deep brown with a well formed beige cap. Sweet with notes of spice and alcohol. Thick and smooth. Some warming but surprisingly little notes of alcohol for such a strong beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of oak, boozy, prune, raisin, date, spice, sugary.
Pours a reddish amber with lasting creamy off white head
Dark cherry fruitiness at first taste then prune and date like followed with a strong earthy bitterness. Complex and a bit overwhelming.
Full bodied, medium CO2, lasting bitter finish.
I would like to try this aged. Unique individual flavors. Good sipper with a friend.

Thanks Niels! Your a swell pal for sending this gem! High boost level and it definitely comes through. Appearance resembles most belgian quads. Murky brown tint, with a little tan head. Nose is big time caramel malts and booze. Taste was caramel and booze. Finish was caramel and booze. Overall, it was fun to try, but would re-trade this if I ever get it in a box again.

Pours a dark amber with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel, dark fruits, and lots of booze. The booze dominates the flavor as well, with some sweet dark fruits. Syrupy. The booze is a bit too much.

4.5 oz pour at highball. Super thick aroma of Sugar and malt. Holy cow this is super sweet any syrupy. If you want a beer that is maddeningly sweet medium malt abv bomb you must try. Amber maroon pour. Fig notes. Burns a little going down at 17.5.
