3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
#24 [Blind tasting @ Papsoe] large thick beige bubbly head that mostly lasted. Excellent lacework. Dark mahogany colour. My first impression is that of a very sweet Quardruple. Dried fruit, herbal, caramel. Over the palate hint of brown sugar, star aniseed and some bread. . Full bodied with soft carbonation and alcoholic texture. Heavy sweet flavour with light floral bitter feel. Sweet sugary herbal lingering finish. 3 / 6 / 7 / 3 / 14 = 3.3

Bottle: The aroma consists of grape, yeast, raisin, faint chocolate, and moderate alcohol that increases as it warms. It pours a hazy reddish-brown with minimal transparency and a moderate tan head that lasts a minute or so. The flavor starts with grape and yeast with some faint chocolate. There is strong candi sugar presence in the middle. There is some faint caramel in the background. It finishes with noticeable alcohol, light spice, and faint floral bitterness. The mouthfeel is full with some lively prickly carbonation that takes some time and swirling to mellow out.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled at the RBSG ’07 Grand Tasting room. Pours a hazy orange-ish brown brew with a fizzy light tan head that quickly disappears. Aroma is funky with green vegetable scents, some black pepper, soy sauce and a touch of dried, dark pitted fruit. Taste is a little off, very sweet, medium bodied with a metalic aftertaste. Finish is sweet with some high alcohol warmth in the aftertaste. More of an experimental brew than a Begian Quadrupel. Hoping this may have been in an infected packaging, try again?

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
At the 07 RBSG grand tasting. Fizzy brown head over a brown beer. Nose of corriader and cat box. Sweet grains, ripe plum, raisen toast and juicey friut sweetness. It bloomed as it warmed. Interesting beer, but I wouldn’t call it a quad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Wow, this didn’t seem anything like a quad to me. There are some notes of fruit in the aroma, some in the flavor but a bit more sugary sweet malts come through. Strange and strong.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 Not so good. This beer has an aroma of Chinese takeout. It is brown in color, lots of malt in the flavor, but an off flavor of vegetables.
