Smell is very sweet and malty with sweet dark bread, caramelized apples, alcohol, caramel, vanilla fudge, charred wood, hay, raisins, marzipan and glue. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty with sweet dark bread, caramel, toasted cereal, caramelized apples, baked pears, charred wood, vanilla fudge, marzipan and glue. Mouthfeel is sharp, boozy, heavy astringent and medium to full bodied. finish is bitter with dark bread, apples, baked pears, marzipan, lemon peal and hay. A apple, pear and marzipan mess…

rlgk (10514) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle from European Local Swap 4.0 (At least I think so...) Clear deep copper/amber beer with a small beige head. Malty caramel aroma, toffee, oak, vanilla, raisins, cream, figs, grapes, woody, some candy and prunes. Malty caramel flavor, warming alcohol, grapes, toffee, woody, candy notes. Slightly boozy but with lots of good things to balance it.

TheJvd (844) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2014
33 cL bottle at home. Pours hazy amber/copper with a small to medium off-white head. Aroma is very sweet with raisins, vanilla, caramel and some dark fruits. Taste is also sweet with vanilla, dark fruits, raisins, malts, some alcohol and a medium bitterness. Over medium body and medium carbo. Too sweet for my liking.

Thank you Euro Superstar Santa ! Classy one with some hops, really ripe fruits, some malt and nice drinkability. Strong and quaffy despite I am not that into really strong piwos.

McTapps (4064) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2014
Pours out of the bottle (with many thanks to Douberd) in a hazy golden-amber colour with low steady head and smooth body. Aroma of hops, flowers and vanilla. Taste of deep roasted hops, barley, vanilla, oak, prunes and raisins. Wonderful to drink, enjoyed it.

ShivanDragon (1575) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2014
10%, 2013 variant. zwart ondoorzichtig bier met minimale witte kraag. fantastisch aroma voor een quadrupel, eikenhout, vanille, zoet, rozijnen, caramel. smaken zijn rozijn, redelijk zoet, licht bitter, sterk alcoholisch, in de basis bevat dit bier al erg goede smaken, maar het Amerikaanse eikenhout laat het biertje voor mij stijgen tot een super niveau. de vanille, eikenhout, banaan en de stevige alcohol maakt het tot één van de betere quads die ik heb gehad. klasse bier !

MarcoDL (2179) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2014
Different from the normal Thomas, in the way that is has more oak and vanilla. Sharp edge from the fruity hops. Nice.

JefVerstraete (1287) - BELGIUM - APR 28, 2014
Bottle from Biernavigatie, @ home. Dark brown colour, creamy head. Sweet aroma with hints of caramel and lots of vanilla and bourbon. Light citrus taste from the hops. A bit too sweet, Ongelovige Thomas is better.

Boekanier (57) - NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2014
Delicious beer! Lots of caramel and vanilla in the aroma, head is gone pretty quickly though. Completely transforms the basis (ongelovige Thomas), but what a wonderful transformation!

Behoorlijk krachtige verbetering op de ongelovige thomas. De jaren hebben dit biertje goed gedaan
