MoritzF (9015) - Ottobrunn, - OCT 20, 2012
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, reddish amber colour with a firm medium-sized tanned foamy head. Moderately piney and slightly citric hoppy aroma with notes of dark malt, caramel and liquorice. Bitter and moderately sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Dark malt character with caramel, liquorice, accompanied by piney and mildly fruity hops; present dark malty sweetness towards the moderately fruity and bitter hoppy finish with warming alcoholic notes. Not the best ASA, but nevertheless a pleasant Ale. 20.X.12

Lore (1765) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 23, 2016
dark brown colour with ruby notes and 1 inch creamy beige head; aroma of dried fruits (plum), carmel, grapefruit an resiny notes as well as some anise, hints of milk chocolate and alcohol; taste is the same - the alcohol could be a bit more hidden, otherwise great beer

MichaelAwesome (6157) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2016
Stark und belgisch. Nicht schlecht mit seinem angenehmen Touch an Hefe und Hopfen, dazu leicht in der Vanille. Ordentliche Perlung, dazu alkoholisch und süffig. Feine Sache.

Bottle bought in the Netherlands. The beer has got a deep dark golden-amber colour with a smooth body and steady head. Aroma of hops and fruits. Taste of hops, Belgian yeast, wheat, exotic fruits, pine and bread. Hoppy-Belgian finish.

Strong beer, an American style quadrupel. Nice strong sweet tones, some bitter tones and a spicy aftertaste.

R4N5H (525) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2015
30cl draught glass on 20-Dec-2015 at Cafe Loetje, Amsterdam. Dark brown, almost black in colour with a small tan coloured head. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Aroma of dark fruits, molasses, caramel and hops. Sweet heavy taste - typical of a Belgian Quad. Full creamy mouth feel. Flavours of caramel, sweet malt, figs and hops. To be sipped and enjoyed.

mariuspoenari (413) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2015
Dark brown pour with little head. Smells of dark fruit, grapes, prunes, caramel. Tastes like dried fruit - figs and especially raisins - caramel, prunes, dark grapes. It has a slight metallic feeling and a harsh bitterness in the background that I can only describe as super-bitter grapefruit without the citrus part. Soft mouthfeel with a harsh metallic and bitter aftertaste, which I did not detect the first time I had this beer.

Gubihumle (501) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2015
Flaske. farven er mahognibrun/mørkebrun. Skumkronen er tæt, men også flygtig. Aromaen er karamel og nødder medens smagen er mørk chokolade, figner og tørret frugt.
