W aromacie nuty owocowe, winne, tarninowe, cukierkowe. Smak słodko kwaśny, nuty miodowe, wyraźny alkohol dość przyjemny i śliweczka :) - bardzo pozytywny quadrupel bardzo smaczny i bardzo siecze :) W zasadzie jest to chyba najlepsze masowe piwo belgijskie jakie dotąd piłem. Jedynie te nuty miodowe mącą nieco.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, best before 16/6/2016. Clear, dark red with a huge, foamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish-fruity aroma of raisins, prunes, dark cherries, cane sugar and molasses with a boozy note and minimal hints of dark chocolate. Very sweet taste of raisins, prunes, cane sugar and molasses, followed by a long, warming, alcoholic and slightly bitter finish. Full body, oily mouthfeel, average carbonation. Decent Strong Ale and very much like a doppelbock. Could be even more intense, apart from the alcohol. Not that complex though.

Chocolate brown color or perhaps a red almost black board with ruby tones are beautiful in tulip. In fact, its proprietary tulip with the vessel Dragon Viking is a trim.
A marvelous guise of this beer. Since the shape of the bottle as your dress.
Cream is beige, high to medium formation and relative durability.
Aroma fruity, with red fruits, raisins, port wine, plum, banana, roasted coffee, fig, and a discreet and unexpected scent of flowers.
In Flavor noticed a whole body, very carbonated, with strong notes of red fruits, toasted malt liquor, port wine, raisins and a medium bitterness and a rare and reasonable sweetness dueling with a salty subtle. Alcohol is inserted into the well environment and does not extrapolate the balance despite its firepower.
It is significant that all these elements are in great harmony.
The aftertaste is striking and as previously said his body is medium, velvety texture and very plain. the end Hop "clean" taste.
One of the most respected and appreciated Belgian Strong Ale.
