Tap@tuulensuu. Amber color with a silky white head. Aroma has yeast, caramel, raisin and almonds. Taste is a bit bitter but has a long sweet aftertaste. Full of flavors like ripe fruits, nuts, caramel and some spices. Nice full mouth feeling but still very drinkable.

Excellent nose, noble and distinctive. Cloudy mahogany, first class color, light beige head. Winter beer, but if you offer me a bottle during sometime - no problem at all! Complex, but yet shy liquid, restrain to shout its quality, which is so nice quality by itself. You can almost chew the taste. Gorgeous!

Aromat: typowo belgijski, estrowy, lekko bananowy, również karmelowy. Ogólnie bardzo intensywny. Dość mętne, złote. Piana początkowo wysoka, szybko opada do niskiej (ale nie zerowej), pozostaje na szkle. Smak również "belgijski", estrowy, owocowy, wyraźnie słodowy. Wyczuwalny alkohol, ale dobrze ułożony. Goryczka niska. Dość wysokie wysycenie i szlachetnie rozgrzewające odczucie alkoholowe, gęste.. Ogólnie piwo wybitnie degustacyjne i godne polecenia.

This one was bought by mistake by one of my friends. We had tried the Tripel a while back and he thought he had bought more.. but to our unanimous statisfaction, he had bought the Quadrupel.
330ml bottle served in snifter at room temperature:
Pours a foggy mohagony showing no carbs and topped off by a huge creamy white head with a slight tan. Lacing properties are crazy making the brew very appealing visually.
The nose is outrageously fruity and nutty with tons of banana, molasses and almonds. I got a strong alcohol backbone giving a brandy aspect to the nose. Sometimes getting the alcohol in the nose is not a positive trait but in this case I found it fitted just right. It’s almost as if you were about to drink a winter warmer so it makes the brew promessing.
On the tongue, the beer is dense, effervescent, putting out tons of candied fruits and nuts. It breaks down into foamy and sweet liquorish dattes leading to an incredible warm finish lasting ages.
This is just a wow all the way. I recommend any Quadrupel fan to give this beer a try. It’s dense, complex and yet incredibly delicate. Awesome product! Cheers!

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2015 The appearance is an excellent deep amber color that is very appealing. Head started out a finger thick but with very poor retention. Aroma is a sweet mix of ripe banana and vanilla. Palate is quite good for a quad, very drinkable, a bit dry and bitter aftertaste. Taste is a bit boozy, but mixes well with malts and fruit like banana. It does improve I believe with warming, as i get much more of the banana and vanilla flavors. so is probably best at 10-12c (about 55-53F)

Caramel, almonds, some spiciness, though not as much as others of the style. Maybe a hint of butterscotch as well (though it might be something else that I can’t place). ABV is well hidden. Very smooth.
