The aroma has a lot of sweet malts with raisin and caramel. Dark red-brown coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is sweet, has sugar, caramel and raisin. Bit one-dimensional.

Bottle @ home. Ruby red to brown volour with a creamy beige head. Smells malts, iron and some syruppy sweetness. Tastes quite sweet, coffee, mocca, dark chocolate, caramel. Very rich flavour. Slightly roasty also, but different than a stout. Also a bit like a quadrupel. Full body, soft carbo.

Dark brown body, bubbly beige head. Spices, sugary brioche, toffee, sweet sticky fermented fruit and rum. Mix between a bitter base, cookies and rum barrel. Foamy mouthfeel. Very sweet, but I don’t mind. Very Belgian. But sticky, but more hops than the usual quad. Like. (50cl bottle, reasonably priced)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew and OleR. Pours a near clear nutty-brown body with a small sidesticking bubbly head. Aroma is really sweet with caramel and heavy ripe banana. Also some hints of pure alcohol. Average carbonation, medium-bodied and it has a sticky and syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor-wise this is really sweet with enormous amounts of banana - a bit to much perhaps? -, some plums and almost no bitterness. Like drinking fermented liquid banana-concentrate topped with caramel, brown sugar and ripe strawberries. Nice warming aftertaste. All that being said, it was not any bad flavors but one glass is enough..
