dhatton (115) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Deep mahogany body with auburn highlights. Frothy layer of off-white foam that subsides into a halo of bubbles with noticeable lacing. Rich, fruity aroma, combined with yeast and spiciness; cloves and nutmeg. Taste is of raisins, plums, mild chocolate, malt, and some black licorice on the finish. Creamy texture, alcohol masked well by the high level of carbonation. Delightful beer overall, very drinkable even considering the high alcohol content.

Yayita (38) - - FEB 6, 2015
Cannot believe it is not brewed in an abbey! True abbey style Quad (on low alcohol side (9%). Aroma chocolate, caramel no alcohol. Small ephemeral head. Very light body for alcohol. Well balance bitterness-residual sugar. Nice rum palate. Very good!

Hazy, dark copper color. Medium body, very little flavor, flat mouthfeel, little carbonation, low alcohol heat, avg length. Sweet, unbalanced, hint of bitterness, lacking in acidity. Syrupy, hint of hops, not much more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma of ripe fruit. Flavor is sweet and warming. Tastes just slightly better than bio variant in my opinion.

Moebbels (412) - FINLAND - JAN 10, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy, very dark amber body with a small, off-white head. The nsoe has heavy notes of prunes, sherry and molasses. The taste is very sweet with a dry finish that leaves traces of the sweetness on the palate. Carbonation is creamy and fairly heavy and the palate feels quite rich. A nice beer but very sweet or the style.
