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 (3560) - 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 (1427) - 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 n van de betere quads die ik heb gehad. klasse bier !

Different from the normal Thomas, in the way that is has more oak and vanilla. Sharp edge from the fruity hops. Nice.

JefVerstraete (1142) - 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.

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

RW80 (526) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2014
33cl bottle Appearance: red Brown with a beige creamy head. Good retention, leaves a light retention Aroma: Confit Fruit, wood, vanilla bourbon notes. Taste: Sweet, boozy bourbon vanilla wood with red fruit, lots of caramelised malts. Sweet Fruity finish with wooden tones. full body, soft- medium carbonation. Typical Jopen Quad/barley wine. So the typical sweetness however in this one they nail it, just going up to huge sweetness, but just avoiding the point were it becomes artifical.

Dark brown beer with quickly vanishing head. Boozy aroma of dark fruit. Taste has notes of wood, vanilla, caramel and is mild and slightly sweet. Pleasantly delicious.
