Köszönet Armandonak érte! Amint megláttam ezt az érdekes vöröses színt, akkor már gondoltam, hogy ez nem lehet egy rossz főzet! Illatában és az ízében is ott van a tipikus belga élesztős zamat. Az egésznek olyan igazi pezsgős jellege van, sok buborék, sok gyümölcs és magasabb alkoholtartalom, kis hordós beütés. Nagyon kellemes, ünnepi ital.

#1365 Ziemlich dunkles Bier ohne echten Schaum, macht nen abgestandenen Eindruck. Würzmalziges und leicht spritiges Aroma. Süß, rezent, leicht nach Lebkuchen; im Abgang eine Lakritznote im wärmenden Alkohol. Trinkbar, aber für mich kein Gaumenschmaus.

Bibendum (117) - ITALY - OCT 7, 2012
Non il mio genere di birra, si presenta con un colore scuro e una schiuma sufficientemente fine. sentori floreali e di malto appaiono prima all’olfatto e poi in bocca. Quasi caramellata, in bocca č dolce, a volte stucchevole. L’alcol si sente ma non č invadente. Dopo un paio di sorsi stufa.

On tap in the Kulminator, which was advertising it a a 10 year old blend. Poured a deep ruby colour with no real head. Aroma of sweet, dark alcoholic fruit. Medium to full bodied, flavour is raisin, caramel and sweet malt. Bitter sweet aftertaste lingers.

0,33 l bottle, Belga Sörök Háza, Budapest.
Poured deep ruby brown with a fine creamy tan head. Fruity aroma with raisins, spicies and chocolate. Typical belgian ale yeast with some champagne character, vanilla and chocolate, cherries, some oak. Good one!

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2013 Bottle at Stubbies in Gainesville. Pours very dark with slight head. Heavy alcohol smell mixed in with plums and raisins. Maybe some pear. Definitely lets you know it is 11%, but this does not overpower the complex prune-chocolate combo. Nice sweetness. Felt it going to my head after just one. A must try for Quad fans. This one should be talked about more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Heel donkerbruin met een snel inzakkende kraag. Ruikt wat zuur en naar caramel, er is ook wat alcohol te ruiken. Medium body, wat zuur met bubblegum en caramel. Niet echt mijn ding.

Vintage 2010 bottle. Look: Classic BSDA, Quad color. Dark brown body, beige lacing. Smell: Sweet brown sugar, tamed fruitiness, bread dough, Roasted notes of chocolate. Taste: Sweet, Candy sugar, Roasted malt with chocolate notes, cookie dough, caramel, toffee, Slight died fruits, mellow alcohol. Feel: Full bodied, Chewy, Soft carbonation. Overall: This is a hellava good sipping brew. Winter’s delight. A nice way to end a day after a nice big family dinner. There is only one thing wrong with this brew, 11.2 Fl Oz. I wish I had another bottle. Highly Recommended.
