4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle @ Himmeriget, Copenhagen. Pours a deep mahogany brown body with a small off-white head. Nose is dark malts, raisins, whisky, wood, alcohol and hints of vanilla, dark fruits, brown sugar and caramel. Taste is caramel, toffee, honey, alcohol, raisins, nuts and hints of butterscotch, figs, dates and dark malty notes. Full, oily body, medium carbonation. Amazingly integrated flavors; so complex, heavy and still utterly moore-ish. Fantastic stuff, probably the best quad I’ve had after Westy 12 (which is still king in my book).

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I only rate the beers that make me say wow... So mybratongs are biased to the beers I enjoy. This is one of them. So big, such a broad palate, but so do well balanced. Smells like aromatic cookies/cinnamon rolls. Pours with small head, can smell the aroma from a distance. It was a favorite at a recent share. Palate guves you raisins, oak, cinnamon and a nice balance to the sweet with just a touch of black oeooer heat on the finish. If this beer werent so costly, id have tons of it in my cellar. IIt’sabeauty any stout/quad lover should have a go with at least once. Put it in your "must have" list if youve not already tried it. Highly recommended!
