4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I truly thought that Gulden Draak could not be improved upon. I was wrong! This stuff is the hammer of the gods!
Aroma - smells of strong, dense fruits with a bit of an alcohol smell.
Appearance - beautiful pour with a thin head and dark body.
Taste - complex and thoroughly tasteful. Lots of up front fruitiness with a little bit of burn, but everything is tied together nicely.

330ml bottle. Dark amber color. Medium size, thick white head, stays. Yeast, malts, grainy, alcohol and sweet notes in aroma. Alcohol, sweet, malty taste. Strong alcohol in taste disturbs.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small bottle. Hazy orange body, steady head. Aroma is a mix of brandy, dried fruit and estery yeast. Taste has caramel, hints of brandy and yeast. Kind of doppelbocky - like a stronger version of Paulaner Salvator with Belgian yeast. Not quite as well balanced. Alcohol is well hidden though. Good but not impressing.

Ein ganz schöner Bomber, aber dabei dennoch fein, wenn auch sehr voluminös. Angenehm im Karamell mit Nüssen, dabei noch leicht gerstig. Guter Brummer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BB 03.09.2015, 0.33L bottle from Van Steenberge Sampler Pack. Pours clear amber with big white head. The head stays for a long time, it never disappears. Aroma: fresh fruits, sweet apples, raisins, hints of sourness and phenols. Taste: very sweet, some apples, very strong alcohol. Finish has some bitter kick. Lively carbonation. Overall: the appearance isn’t maybe typical for quadruple, but I think it looks delicious, the aroma is also rather nice, but the taste isn’t great; the alcohol is really distracting. It’s not a bad beer, but nothing exciting neither.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Botltle, 33cl. Pours a surprisingly clear golden/honey colour with a modest head. Aroma is faint, pretty disappointing. Taste is magnificent considering how faint the aroma is. Very robust and earthy, with a strong alcohol finish well balanced by the beer’s richness. Excellent, strong beer to warm your winters.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark golden with thick island-like white head. What a lovely appearance. Aroma is hard to smell through the dense head. Aroma is sweet caramel, sweet red fruit, Belgian spice and some mild alcohol. Round mouth feel with creamy carbonation. Aftertaste is sweet red fruit, caramel, floral hops and alcoholic rum. Lingering alcoholic rum. Overall: A excellent beer! Maybe a little to alcoholic.

Ambrée trouble, effervescence moyenne-forte à bulles fines, col beige moyen. Malts caramel doux, légèrement vineuse, petite amertume, un rien métallique, agréablement fruitée en filigranes, l’ABV ne se fait pas vraiment sentir.
