Sweet and sticky, long finish. Not a lot of aniseed on the palate, its somewhat balanced, alcohol well hidden. This is a tasty beer!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very drinkable one with some berries and hops in the aroma. Has something you could call a deep body but due to its balance an easy going one at 10 abv. Great,

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beer from trade with Beersiveknown - many thanks, Steve! The beer pours out in a cloudy amber colour with steady head and smooth body. Nice aroma of hops and wheat. Taste of aromatic hops, mild yeast, wheat, bread, citrus and flowers. Finishes intense with berry hints. High enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Was dreading this before I opened and I was right. Pours dark cloudy ruby red. Head disappears very quickly. Not great looking. Aroma is alcoholic sweet. Some aniseed but not enough. Some dark fruit. Flavour is syrup with alcohol finish. Body is not full enough to carry this beer. Unbalanced. Hardknot a bit more miss than hit.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from Redmonds. Dense, dark amber pour, thin resiny offshore head, doesn?t last. Stewed fruits in the nose, molasses, sherry notes, phenols, a slight chemical note, some sweet spice too. Flavour is full on to say the least, sweet spicy malt, dark fruits, prunes, raisins, a warming alcohol note in the finish. There?s is syrupy cough medicine note in the flavour too. Medium body, low carbonation, odd for the style. Finish is syrupy sweet and slightly alcoholic. Unbalanced.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
As per usual bar few exceptions I must say leave the Quads to the Belgians. Over sweet and a total lack of balance.

Bottle. Aniseed and liquorice are the first flavours that I noticed. Foilowed by an overpowering sweetness that stopped until the end of drinking. The label is understated which the beer isn’t. Reasonable but probably an aquired taste.

Bottle from Ales by Mail. Pours murkish amber with a small creamy head.Aroma of dried fruits, a touch of anisette. Taste is super sweet, bordering cloying, warming alcohol, thick syrupy mouthfeel,cough syrup, medicine for some, not for me I am afraid.
