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.

Bottle from Y Delyn Wine Bar, Mold. Pours a hazy deep amber with a long lasting frothy two finger head. Aromas of raisin, sugar and bread. Taste of brown sugar, caramel and malt with a strong alcohol back and slight bitterness. Well carbonated and goes down well. Nice stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lively carbonation, with light white head, colour is light brown. Aroma is spices, candy sugar and bread. Taste was a bit off putting at first. But as the glass sat for a bit the flavour opened up, I get butterscotch, bread, a hint of brown sugar and a slight bitter aftertaste. Pretty much zero heat but its a touch oxidized but I think this bottle is pretty old. Not like the quads I have sampled but a tasty brew nontheless.
