(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.

yngwie (15764) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle, 375ml corked. It pours an unclear, brown body and a dense, beige head. Vinous nose with lots of dried fruits and sugar, quite alcoholic too, in a nice way. Some oak hints. Wonderful flavor with a good warmth and a healthy dose of dried fruits. Sugar notes. Full-bodied, warming and sweet. Lasting warming finish with sugar, dried fruits and a fine bitterness. 110820

On tap at Arendsnest, Amsterdam.
Deep mahagony colored one with a small pffwhite head. Moderated aroma that opens whn the beer gets warmer. Green apples, tuttifrutti and a lot of fruits like fig and raisins, and some oak. Complex flavor, fruits again(green apples, raisins and tropical fruits), tarty character of thge oaks, bubblegum again because of the high abv. Delicious.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2012
Bottle. 37,5 cl. Light unclear orange-reddish amber with a small off white head. Intense and sweet, slightly spicy aroma of overripe fruits, oak, concentrated caramel. Flavor is even more intense, sweet but not too sweet, toasted malty, over ripe fruity. Some alcohol cutting through. Nicely balanced.

ClubGonzo (4903) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep nougat brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma is intense caramelly butterscotch tones, vanilla, oak, dense malty tones and hints of booze. Taste is raisins, wood, honey, intense caramel, vanilla, hints of cognac, booze, toffee and traces of nuts. Solid stuff. Full body, medium carbonation. A very nice and dense quad on the sweet side of things.

kappldav123 (5597) - GERMANY - DEC 5, 2011
Thanks to bierkoning for that one. Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass darker than the other versions I had, small head. Starts strong-malty, modest sweet, hints of chewing gum. Also some fruity notes. Finish well balanced, less sweet, warming-malty. Good beer!

Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg 2011. Amber colored with a slight haze. Thin white head. Intense aroma of ripe fruit, caramel, wood, grpaes. Sweet and vinous flavor. Rpe fruit, caramel, wood, a bit boozy but tasty.
