4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap in "La casa the la cerveza" in Madrid. Hazy brown colour with a nice creamy head. Aroma consists of caramel, some tropical fruits maybe, some candy sugar and belgiam yeast. Flavour also brings along oak, wood and a more presant caramel taste. It has good a bit sharp mouthfeel at first, but then it smoothens up soft, suiting carbonation. The alcohol is not notable in the aroma nor the flavour. I can sense some bitterness in the aftertaste, really good. Overall a top scoring beer in my opinion.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle poured into pint glass. Beautiful dark golden amber color with thick fluffy slow dissapating head. Aroma has a slight banana scent. Goes down smooth, has a little banana flavor and a little burn from alcohol. Since I’m more an IPA fan, there are many other options I’d go for, but it definitely is a quality brew.

Una quadrupla da gradino del podio mondiale dello stile. Di colore ambrato, con intensi sentori floreali, con dolcezza dei malti, lascia un buon retrogusto dolce, con sentori di banana, mandorle e vaniglia

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear dark amber/brownish with a small off-white head. Malty aroma of caramel, sugar, bit of dark fruits, clear banana, spices. Nice sweet taste. Bit bready, nice banana touch. Fruits kick in later on (plums, raisins). Some alcohol as well. Bit disturbing, clear bite on the tongue... The end is slightly bitter with that sweetness still overarching... Beautiful warmish kick in the aftertaste... Nice, but quite sweeter than many other quads. Medium bodied with a lovely creamy mouthfeel and a fizzy carbonation. Overall seen quite a nice beer. Not the most complex and balanced and it doens’t hide its alcohol that well, but still a pretty tasty well-made brew. I liked it.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is full of many pleasant scents. Banana, clove, earth, candied fruit, caramel, musty yeast, biscuit, baking spice, and coriander. The flavor is sweet and with caramel covered biscuits, clove, slight bitterness, sweet candy, orange peel, lemon peel, and earth. The palate is medium full bodied, fizzy carbonation, and has a syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is sweet and brief. Great Belgian beer that I will surely have again.
