Erasmus_ro (1289) - Alabama, USA - SEP 14, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 12 cl tap at Arendsnest, Amsterdam 12/09/2011. Pours hazy, burnished copper with a medium, slightly yellowish-brown head. Aroma is white winely acidic, white currant, oak, sherry-like. Taste is raisin, prune, reminiscent of sherry or port wine, sweet. Alcohol comes through a bit as a warming sensation. Palate is full and a bit sticky. Very nice.

haukur (1270) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 17, 2011
I was not expecting much. I love the orginal, and know it quite well, having sampled it at various age, but this is something different. Very woody aroma, same thing when taking a sniff of a good Chablis, same oak. Some wine grapes. Looks like a regular quad, coppar dark brown with a small head. Taste is complex, the maltiness of the original is gone, but instead I have a very complex taste of raisins, toast, some chardonnay acidness. I first though I had some whiskey notes but that is that oakey alcahol burn. This is incredible, well worth the price tag. 12 $ in Reykjavik.

GothGargoyle (1142) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2011
Comes in a 375ml bottle with a cork and cage. The cork was plastic and I had some difficulty getting it out! Pours a murky brown with little head. The oak is quite present in the aroma, along with a little of the white wine, plus vanilla and brown sugar. There’s a good level of carbonation and a slightly creamy texture to it. The taste is of caramel, crisp white wine (perhaps Sauvignon Blanc), spices. Quite a unique beer.

bax (1106) - Hasselager, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2011
(Bottle 01/08-2011) Low light brown head, unclear amber color, the white wine balance out some of the sweetness. More complex taste then the normal Quadrupel. Really good.

gEUS (1001) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2013
375 ml bottle - pours deep marroon brown, no head. Aroma of nuts, a bit oxydised (1 year 8 months in cellar), a bit burbouny (?), monbazillac notes, earthy. Medium body, watery with no depth, one-sided. Taste of ashes and nuts, plums and dates. All in all average.
