3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown beer with a light brown head. Aroma: complex and slightly spicy. Palate: sweet, tiny bit spicy and a lot of malty bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel: mild carbonation, bit sticky. A little disappointing, still ok though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Dark brown colour with big, but brief, foamy beige head. Malty, spicy nose with dark fruit, coffee, liquorice, caramel, dark chocolate, orange peel and spices (dried chilli, cinnamon). Malty, spicy taste with notes of caramel, liquorice, black coffee, chocolate, orange peel, spices (chilli, cinnamon, star anise, ginger), burnt sugar and a balanced spicy bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a touch of sweetness. Quite powerful and complex, with lots of coffee, chocolate and spices. Nice one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Muddy, dark brown color with mocha head. Aroma has raisins, dark sugar and some other generic dark fruit character. Taste follows with dark fruits, bitter chocolate and raisins. Body is medium with light carbonation, also quite boozy. Overall this beer has some nice flavors but I think it’s too bitter for the style. Some sweetness would have helped to bring out all the components in a better way.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle. Darkest brown. Yellow-brown head. Aroma is raisin, brown sugar, orange peel. Only tamarind from the spice blend stands out. Taste is chocolate and toffee malty with plummy raisin fruitiness. Spices seem to have dropped off. A well put together quad. Misses out on some complexity but still very tasty.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very dark amber pour, tan head with decent retention and a somewhat sticky lacing. You can tell from the smell that this is a Belgian quad - caramel / brown sugar, dried fruit (figs, raisins), coffee, cocoa, a bit of vanilla and a hint of cinnamon. Taste notes include raisins, figs, caramel, sour cherries, some cinnamon (which I probably wouldn’t have noticed, had I not known it should be there), coffee, dark chocolate and a spicy chilli punch, probably made more potent by the high ABV. Medium to full bodied, with a creamy and a bit sticky mouthfeel. Spicy aftertaste, with a nice sweet caramel component to balance it out.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy brownish beer with a small, off white head on top that disappears really quickly. Aroma is very fruity, loads of dark fruits, some herbal and vegetal notes. Flavor has a very faint spicy note, loads of sweet ripe fruits, a decent, thick malty mouthfeel. Aftertaste is long and sweet, sticky and cloying till the very finish. Low level of carbonation. some yeastyness detected in the mouthfeel. Overall quite nice, but not really impressive as a Quad in my book.
