mariuspoenari (1461) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2016
33cl bottle. Dark brown pour with a tall tan head. Smells tart and vinous, like grapes, sour milk, vinegar, yeast and spices. The taste adds overripe bananas, red wine, dried fruit (mostly prunes), dark fruit jam, a bit of chocolate, burnt caramel (mostly the bitter part than the sweetness), rosemary and a warm alcohol finish. Quite a complex and enjoyable brew.

onceblind (7309) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Aged 3 years. Plummy purplish Amber hue with a fast dissipating head. Rich plummy sweet and raising nose with a little purple fruit and Belgian boozy depth. Huge rich flavor full of raisin, sweet plum, a little port wine and sherry barrel, and a lovely sweet boozy background.

N3lson1 (969) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Drank from a 500ml pint glass, poured from a 330ml bottle. Thank you Bjorn! Pours a nice deep dark brown with a bit of beige head. Nice malty aromas, a real decilicous Quad!

KoNrRiI (1215) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2016
0.33 bottle. A very hazy, brown color with some suspension and a small, tanned head. A vinous aroma marked with barrel, port wine, dark fruits, and some yeasts. Taste is also that of port wine, dark fruits, wood, and damp - quite sweet. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long, fruity, and simply put good. Overall the beer is good, a tad off-balance but drinkable.

PowY (174) - - JUN 4, 2016
330 ml bottle. Pours dark chestnut with a light brown head. The aroma is yeasty with some malt, spices and hard to define sweetness. Full body with oily texture and flat and very convenient carbonation. The taste stars sweet and slightly acidic (fruity acids). Heavy of roasted malt (caramel), toffee honey and some alcohol. Very full and appealing beer with a warming alcoholic feeling.

LazyPyro (568) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
0.33l bottle with an explosive opening. Cloudy chocolate brown colour with a large light brown head. Sweet aroma of dark fruit, malt, caramel, sugar, honey, spices, alcohol. The flavour is exactly all that too. Very sweet beer with some bitterness, soft carbonation, oily texture. Pretty good.

flemmingwillum (1184) - Nysted, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2016
Rating #1148, flaske fra The Bottle Shop, Brügge

Rødbrun uklar øl med ok skum. Tung duft af kirsebær, brombær, solbær og portvin. Smagen er ligeledes tung af portvin og kirsebærsauce, med en markant bitterhed og overmodne frugter som dadler og overmodne blommer. Krydderier og markant humle og varmende alkohol. Voldsom øl. Tyk og cremet. En positiv overraskelse!

alteregoo (921) - POLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Niewielka, sycząca pianka, która szybko opada prawie do zera. Barwa brunatno brązowa, mętna. Aromat intensywny, słodki, zdominowany przez suszone i kandyzowane owoce, miód, porto oraz lekko żelazistą nutę kontynentalnego chmielu. W smaku nie jest aż tak słodko, jak można by przypuszczać po zapachu (zresztą pojawia się do tego delikatna kwaskowość morelowa w afterteasie). Oczywiście tu także prym wiodą daktyle, figi, suszone gruszki i śliwki oraz palony karmel, miód za to jest mniej wyczuwalny. Jest też sporo nut przyprawowych, korzennych i wyraźny likierowy alkohol, przywodzący na myśl rodzynki w spirytusie. Goryczka nieduża, głogowa. Wysycenie średnie, wyklejające i treściwe w odbiorze, średnio gęste.
Smaczny Quadrupel, choć dla mnie nieco zbyt alkoholowy. Belgijskie i holenderskie odpowiedniki w moim odczuciu jednak prezentują wyższy poziom.
