3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer has a huge amount of raspberry froth as head. Yum. Aroma is mostly forest fruits, some lactic acid. Taste is sour and fruity, with more notes of raspberry and brown sugar. The aftertaste leaves just the sour and bitter notes, which is very refreshing. It’s very difficult to drink this beer at a normal pace since it feels relatively heavy. Maybe it’s the alcoholic taste that remains after the fruits and sugars are gone. Nice, but different than I expected.

dark amber colour, brownish head; aroma of dried fruits, some yeast and alcohol; taste is fully dominated by sweetness of brown sugar, dried fruits, malt (lot of malt) and honey - a bit barley wine-like feeling; not bad, but not as complex as a professional quadrupel

Pours deep amber/brown with some beige head, diminishing. Aroma is of caramel, toffee, malt, sweetness. Taste is serious. Malt, caramel, toffee, fruits, sligth faint notes of hints of sourness. Palate: Medium-full bodied. Overall: Pretty good. A very enjoyable quad, nice alternative to classic rochefort, saint-bernardus and others (but less complex).

Reddish brown appearance, thick head, and medium body. Lots of caramel and dark roastiness. Some delicious bitterness blended in that accentuates the alcohol.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color mogano scuro con schiuma beige abbondante. Sentori di uvetta, toffee e frutta sotto spirito; gusto dolce, vinoso, note fruttate e maltate con un finale leggermente più amarognolo. Corposa e liquorosa, abv un po’ invadente ma in ogni caso molto buona.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought online @ Drankgigant. Hazy red brown with a small off-white head. Very strong sweet herbal aroma. smelled it from a distance of half a meter. Medium bitter taste with hints of chocolate and molasses along with caramel en dried fruits. Bit of an odd taste actualy. I don’t really like it but can’t really explain why. It all tastes artificial and off-balance
