Poured from the bottle from tavour. Nice thick head. Aroma is fantastic for a quad. The alcohol level is a bit hard hitting.... Flavor is also fantastic.

My first Quadruple and it is a warming smooth heavy beer where the malt has a strong accent. It is sweet and full. This surely grows on you. It is like a sweet wine, that warms from within. A mellow feeling comes up!. A legendary beer.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smuggled back through customs from Taiwan. Into a chalice at cellar temperature. Misty, burnished chestnut body with fine carbonation and a a loose, slowly waning off-white foam. Spiced rum, treacle, plum grappa, cloves, prunes in syrup and raisins on the nose with a chewy, stewed tomato, umami backdrop that makes it interesting. Rather rusty on the palate with ample tannins and a rusty linger. Sweet, buttery caramel start with a light touch of nutty praline. Dark stone fruit in back with a grape-skin astringency. Slight towards spice. Alcohol is evident but aides rather than hinders. Frothy, sugary viscosity. Gammy linger of fruit sugars. A few years to meld I’m guessing. Nose offers so much. Disappointing haul! (33cL, no date stamp, Carrefour, Taipei, Taiwan)

Pours a thick three-finger cream head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Almost clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Malty, dark fruit nose and flavor is dark fruit, brown sugar and Belgian yeast. Higher ABV is hidden. Another excellent brew from Van Steenberge. $6.99 for a 330ml bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, MA.

Not my favorite quad, but really good. Cloudy dark-golden pour with lasting, clingy white foam. Aroma is amazing - honey and ripe fruit with slight alcohol. Flavor is great, with malty sweetness, banana, and yeast. Finish is fairly clean, with lingering yeast and sweet raisin. Not sure why I’ve passed this by so many times.

From elcervecero. In Tongerlo glass. Playing Bit Evolution. Good, but I prefer the normal one. In This one alcohol is a bit more noticeable and taste is more like in a strong tripel
