3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pours hazy brown with and a medium sized tan head, that leaves a fair lacing. Aroma of slightly roasted malt, nuts, caramel, spice and chocolate notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with alcohol notes. Medium bodied, oily to syrupy texture and lively CO2. An interesting version of a quad and quite enjoyable. ★★★★

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. The bottle looks cool, no doubts about it. The corsk jumps out with a loud pop, lots of pressure in this tiny bottle. Foam starts coming out slowly, gusher warning. It pours dark ruby / mahogany in the glass with a huge off-white head. Tiny bubbles that stick around and last long. Aroma is a tad weaker than you could expect. Nothing realy jumps in your face but you can easily distinguish raisins, red peppers, blood, yeast. Some cinnamon and bread in there, plus mix of dried fruits. Taste is on the sweet side with a slightly acidic kick in the end. You can raisins, cinnamon, bread, plums and chili in the end. It finishes a bit warming, but nothing to put me off. Actually I find the chili to be very well integrated. Some sort of orange zest kinde feel to it as well. Mouthfeel is medium to tick with huge carbonation. Nothing that a good ol’ swirl can’t resolve. Overall, this is good stuff. I think the spices added work perfectly with the base beer. Only complain would be the weak aroma, even at room temp. Very good nonetheless.

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.
