3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dense dark amber with lots of sediment, short-lived head, no lace. Strong, alcohol loaded dark malt with heavy spices, prunes, and maybe a dash of spearmint. Tastes a bit like malty mouthwash. Certainly has a big taste, but not high on the "yum" meter. looking over the reviews, it seems that this brew has many variations, the inconsistency perhaps depending on age.

A lot of people seem to hate this beer but Its not that bad. Tastes to me like a low quality kind of old quad. Aroma is pennies, plums, leather, dirt. Taste is more fruity and metal that wont fade. Not awful.

Pours a near clear amber with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces thickly. Aroma has lots of light stone fruits with some sweet grains and a hint of metallic. Flavor has sweet grains up front with some sweet light fruit and a hint of berries.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
33cl bottle @ the Diester Bierfestival on 20 Oct 2012, labelled as ’Den Twaalf.’
Dirty washing up water brown: scummy head, not a good start.
Strange farmyard esters: fruity, yet with a grubby feel to the smell.
Semi-sour moving towards vinegarous in the taste and mouth feel: did I try a bottle with a yeast infection? No according to a couple on my table it had been the same when they’d had it elsewhere and many months before. Tried to enjoy it, but failed.
A long way from being a good quadrupel on the evidence I had in my glass: the wife didn’t like her portion either!
