4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle into chalice; no bottle dating and unknown cork coding. Pours moderately cloudy dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, apple, pear, plum, molasses, toast, dark candi sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of raisin, apple, plum, pear, molasses, toast, dark candi sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, clove, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of dark and light fruits, molasses, toast, dark candi sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, clove, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a slick and slightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent quadrupel style. All around great balance and complexity of dark malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and quite smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

3.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark fruit, malt, booze. Pours a murky opaque brown with a slight amber tint. Boozy. Some bitterness. Very fruity and a little lighter than I expected based on the appearance and aroma. Overall very solid.

The adventure through Belgian beers continues and this one is pretty plain. Strong dark fruit notes and a thin finish offers a pretty average experience in this bomber. Worthy try for the adventurous.

Great beer. Brown coloured and hazy. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Aroma: Yeasty, faint nutty, faint soy-sauce and alcohol. Good flavor, sweet start, harmonic yeasty notes, different kind of bread, warming alcohol. Nice.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bottle. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is apricot, citrus, and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with a dry fruit and licorice. Alcohol present but not too overpowering, a good quad from De Proef.

This bomber totally missed the mark for me. Thin. vapid, uninteresting. For reasons of national security, I will not discuss this issue any further you dumb bastards.
