gunnar (5681) - Sandnes, - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours almost clear dark ruby with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma is perfumed dark malts, spicy and light yeasty, some vanilla and plum, very inviting and complex aroma. Taste is initially a sweet explotion of dark sugars, before it calms down and opens up with a more complex palate, spices and a light alcohol burn, without the alcohol adding sweetness, more dark plums, some kongen av Danmark at the final.Light oily mouthfeel, low viscosity. Very good beer.

Pours a deep brown with bubbly eggshell coloured head. Aroma is dates. Taste is sweet molasses, dates, prunes, figs. Complete with a sweetishly-bitter ending. Reminds me of a christmas pudding that has been soaked in brandy.

Distinctly malty aroma, notes of brown kandij sugar and caramel, hints of dark dried fruits and spices. Sweet, rich and malty flavour, with distinct notes of brown kandij sugar and spices, also notes of dried figs. Low bitterness. Pleasant to drink.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle. It pours an unclear, dark reddish golden body under an off-white head of good height. The aroma is sugary and fruity, with figs, some alcohol and a touch of something woody. It’s full-bodied and lighlty warming on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level, quite high but pleasant. Figs, a generic fruityness, some dark sugars and alcohol notes in the flavor, with a bitterness trying to balance it. Lasting finish. It lacks some of the depth and complexity found in the best quads, and to be honest it’s not spot on as a quad, but it’s sure a fine beer. Hope to find it again this Christmas season. 140530
