Didn’t notice the 10 degrees. Almost no foam. Aftertaste with a weak nuance of stout.

corkyrory66 (667) - BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2014
Quadruple brugeoise de 10 % abv, avec des houblons belges et des épices. Exemplaire à date en mars 16. Couleur brun marron intense et opaque. Bulles fines en colonne au centre. Mousse couleur café crème, d’une texture crémeuse fine et dense, pareille à une Guinness à la pression. Merveilleux. Arômes de fruits mûrs, malt torréfié, porto, Chivas 18 ans, levure. 1ère bouche structurée à la très grande entame sur des fruits mûrs, malt noir et bois de fût. Arrière-bouche de malt noir, avec des noisettes. 2ème sur du malt grillé finement, chocolat noir, feu de bois, amandes. Arrière-bouche pleine. 3ème à la superbe harmonie malt/fruits/bois. Arrière-bouche complexe. La longueur donne des nuances superbes, avec une grande finesse et précision. La levure est fine, très riche, superbe veine. L’alcool fait un très bon travail, et en plus pas du tout « massif ». La finale est fine et pure. CONCLUSION : une bière qui est du grand art pour le genre, parce qu’il n’y a pas du tout d’impressions massives suite au niveau abv. Tout est en finesse et nuances.

tricksta_p (1263) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2014
Aroma of sweet dark malt, caramel, overripe fruits, candy sugar, spices, some liquorice and anise. Flavour is quite sugary and sweet. A bit on the thin side for a Quad. Okay at best, nothing I’ll revisit.

WouterVG (25) - BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2014
Not much complexity, a bit thin for a quadrupel. I guess it only contains base malt and heavy roasted malt and nothing in between to give some balance and body.

Zymurgeist2 (1080) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 6, 2014
From a bottle bought in Brugge. Pours a hazy chestnut brown with full brown head. Head has a murkiness to it. Chocolate, caramel and toffee aromas. Taste is sticky sweet - with chocolate and molasses. Very thin mouthfeel and alcohol not present. Not terribly complex for a quad and just overly sweet. Has a fizzy carbonation to it.

TrefwoordPunk (818) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle 33 cl: Pours dark brown with a medium tan head and an aroma of coffee, caramel, roasted malts, cherries, sweet spices and brown sugar. The taste is heavily sweet with a pretty thin body for a quadrupel. Nice beer to drink, but pretty poor for the style.
