4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
11.2 fl oz bottle. Koningshoeven label, served in Koningshoeven glass. Poured a deep orange-brown shade. Had a very light haze. Retained a small layer of sticky tan head, very tight small bubbles. Sweet aroma, cookie-like, malty. Aroma becomes more fruity/estery as it warms up (mild banana-bread note?) Flavour revealed dark sweet malts, some alcoholic tang noticable. Lasting malty finish with some bitterness, slight dryness and alcohol warming. Superb drinkability, very smooth palate, mild carbonation, full mouthfeel. Alcohol never becomes intrustive. Rating #400.

Amberkleurige trappist met oranje gloed. Heerlijk fruitig aroma van banaan en marsepein. Lekkere licht fruitige smaak met klein bittertje. Smaken van appelsien, kruidnagel, caramel en beetje kaneel. Warme afdronk. Heerlijke trappist.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy very dark amber, but definitely lighter than most quads, quite a bit of rocky head. Nose is banana bread, raisin, spicy Belgian yeast, cinnamon, caramelly quality, maybe clove. Taste matches nose, banana, raisin, very bready, sweet, spicy Belgian yeast, . Very effervescent and bubbly on palate, hides alcohol well. I like it, objectively it's good, but I do prefer other Belgian quads.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ar: bananas and lots of them little bit caramelly / Ap: amber to burnt orange, very cloudy, thick tan head / T: sweet with a nice long bitter finish / P: Medium body, slightly oily and creamy, fizzy and lots of bitterness and alcoholic warmth / O: Personally, first ever crack at a quadrupel and wow its a complex beer, heaps of aroma but the hoppy bitterness is cancelled out nicely by the sweet malt and alcohol. Surprisingly (dangerously maybe) drinkable, very good.

Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsdalen. Mørk gyldenbrun. Høyt luftig skum som varer og etterlater seg litt lacing. Beskjeden pepperaroma. Smaken er jordbær & annen tørket frukt. Antydning til mandler. Bra - men litt tungdrikkelig.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle from Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours vivid amber with beautifully sweet nose of vanilla & caramel. Taste is smooth & balanced with candi sugar and sweet malts that belie its strength, in a similar way to Gulden Draak 9000. Medium bodied with a touch of spice. Great quad.
