F: nice very pale brown. C: very dark red amber brown. A: very malty, dark caramel, brown sugar, alcohol, hint of bread. T: nice sweet cherry, dark chocolate, with merlot wine taste, alcohol, roasted malt, quite dry for me, some spicy, some like metallic dusty sourness, medium to full body, nice lively carbonation, interesting and worth to try.

jelledebont (18) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2015
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.

maekchu (2687) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake Taniguchi). 2012 vintage. Roast malt nose, with deep dark fruitiness, some oxidation and phenolic notes. 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.

Bottle. Excellent Belgian Quad. Sweetly, felt vinnost in taste, a little sour. It lacks a bit of density, but good

Gurthnar (2934) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle from Magic Room. Vanilla and esters both in aroma and taste. Definite Belgian spicy funky element. Defined by the yeast. Clear very dark colour. Alcohol dangerously hidden. Good one.
