3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed from a 750ml champagne-style bottle in a stemless wine glass. The beer pours a medium to nearly deep brown, with a low light tan head. The nose shows fairly rich aromas of molasses and raisin. An underlying yeast note comes through, reminiscent of Duvel’s strain, as does an interesting subtle lactic note. The palate shows assertive carbonation up front, before more molasses/toffee, assertive bitterness (perhaps from the alcohol?), and a note of alcohol toward the finish. Again, underlying yeast notes come through, adding an almost cooling tropical fruit ester toward the finish of the beer. The finish lingers for a moment, showing slight alcohol and residual sweetness. Overall, a strong dark that moves away from the norm with underlying lactic character, but in a way that shows complexity, finesse, and restraint, rather than a simple desire for uniqueness for the sake of itself.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2015 Gevaarlijk bier: zoet, drinkt gemakkelijk weg, waardoor je het alcoholpercentage gauw vergeet. Aroma is iets veelbelovender dan de smaak, maar al met al een erg lekker bier.

Boozy dark fruit initial flavors, raisin, prunes, and brandy-like notes. Medium body, some alcohol burn. Very tasty and rich, but a bit thin-bodied for a quad. Very warming.
