3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the John=Jim Den Haag tasting, Den Haag. Poured a dark brown colour with a thick frothy off white head. The aroma is dry with some hoppy notes. The flavour is strong bitter and alcoholic. The palate is a little too bitter. The alcoholic bitterness is starting to dominate which doesn’t appeal to me.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by kermis @ Jim is John tasting. Dark brown to black color, medium sized light brown head. Smells like a Belgian double. Taste is disappointing as well, malts, pepper, leaves, overripe fruits. Overcarbonated, medium body. Not a good quadrupel by any means.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark brown with a massive light beige head. Aroma of yeast, earth, spices. The chili and cinnamon is definitely there, can’t find the tamarind however. Taste is lightly bitter before turning into a heavy sweet-sour and then into a heavy alcohol finish that lingers forever. Body is medium, creamy, but with maybe a tad too much carbonation for my liking. Ending mouthfeel slightly too sweet and sticky as well.

Flaska från Systembolaget . Spännande är ju bara förnamnet men detta är en ovanligt lyckad hybrid. Både mustig och frisk men ändå bra bett i beska och eftersmak !
