Very dark amber colour with big head. Aroma is sour, some mould mushroom and yeast. The sour part is dominant in the taste, but along comes the fruity sweetness (with forest berries and apple).

Butelka, warka do 17-08-15 (czyli juz dosc ulozona chyba? nie ma daty rozlewu, a nie wiem, ile daja waznosci). Bardzo ladna piana, wysoka, acru, drobna. Niestety bardzo szybko sie redukuje do cienkiego korzuska, za to ladnie brudzi szklo. Samo piwo bardzo rubinowe, fajny kolor. przejrzyste. Aromat to glownie kwasne owoce - wisnie, te okolice. Czuc tez nieco przyprawowosci i korzennosci. troche rodzynek. Zaskakujaco malo nut slodowych w aromacie - dopiero po ogrzaniu, pojawiaja sie nuty zbozowe, sliwkowe, kandyzowanych jakichs rzeczy, moze troche cukru trzcinowego i krowek. W smaku wlasciwie analogicznie do aromatu, przy czym dziwny efekt wystepuje - przy zimnym posmaki owocowe sa w kwaskowata strone, im cieplej, tym bardziej w slodka strone. malo zlozony niestety. dosc nisko wysycony jak na quadrupla, generalnie raczej wodnisty niz tresciwy, nieco lepki w konsystencji. ALkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty. TO dobre piwo, ale do najlepszych w stylu nie ma startu.

Cor castanho brilhante, aroma fortíssimo, alcoólico, lembrando acetona, paladar adocicado, amargo e alcoólico. Deliciosa!!!

nihtila (1357) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2015
24.12.2014. Sweet, syrupy aroma. Taste has dark fruits, syrupy, alcohol pushes through a bit. Nice fruits in taste but feels too simple and strong.

Muggus69 (1395) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2015
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector BB 10-12-15 Nice looking burnish bronze body with fluffy beige head. Rich aroma; brown toffee, Maderia, sultana, pepper & clove phenolics, with ripe stonefruit character. Thick, chewy, syrupy body, moderate carbonation, plenty of warmth. Sweet body, lots of caramelled malts & dark sugars with spicy yeast, dark grain bread dough & fortified wine-like dried fruits. Bitterness a slight bit out of context, warm spicy finish. Pretty heavy stuff. Misses the finesse of better versions, but tasty nonetheless.

susonagger (60) - spain, - MAR 2, 2015
De sabor fuerte, dulce y regusto amargo. Esta es una cerveza de abadía fuerte al estilo del monasterio de Grimbergen, preparada como si se tratase de una Easter (cerveza de Pascua), pero disponible todo el año. Tiene una rica y fuerte nariz compleja con melaza de malta, petróleo, y posiblemente pimienta. El sabor es bastante dulce, masticable, empalagosa, pero la dulzura es contrarrestada por la amargura de la malta. Sin duda, una buena cerveza para después de la cena. Compleja con sus diez grados alcohólicos merece la pena saborear (no beber en trago largo) al final de la tarde.

Shark_Pants (375) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2015
Deep ruby red with big frothy beige head. Aromas of plums, raisins, toffee, candi sugar. The taste matches but has a very light bitterness in the finish that stops it being cloying. Full bodied and spicy. Really quite good and gets much better as it warms.

Franckg (318) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 25, 2015
Goût de pruneaux, caramel, baies confites. Douce et chaleureuse présence d’alcool ainsi qu’une touche de sucre bien dosée. Exellente
