3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge thanks to WillemsUrenkel for that one! Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass dark brown, nice head. Starts strong, intense malty, light alcoholic, not too intense. Light fruity notes of plum. Earthy hints. Finish well balanced, warming-malty. Really nice!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,3 l bottle bought in the Mitra Haren/Groningen. Brewed 2014. "Binnen 25 jaar opdrinken." Okayyyyy ... Pours out nearly black, little bit oily, small low tanned head. Heavy nose. Chocolate, dark berriefruits, sweetness and hop. Starts really smooth, sweet dark fruits, sugar, chocolate, also some hop and malt parts. Some bitter sequences in the late aftertaste. Hidden alcohol, due to the sugar? Very high drinkability.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
30cl bottle: brewed in 2012. Opened and drank during a ’Dutch Beer Evening’ on 31st Oct 2014. Poured slowly into a Westvleteren Trappist chalice at home and shared with no one. Ruby edges to the dark body, a soft, deep tanned blanket sat on top, sediment could be seen floating within the beer: I allowed it to slowly settle, while taking a sniff and occasional sip. Heavy brew with plenty going on: the nose is boozey and Port like, sweet and malt/fruity. The taste is very similar to the aroma, Port, malty and alcoholic with a dark fruitiness. Almost ’barrel aged’ sort of feel to the beer, some spirit type flavours within the ones already mentioned (Port, malt, dark fruits). Very, very drinkable for a bloke like me with a sweet tooth. Rich, full bodied and a joy to have found.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle picked up in Netherlands, September 2014. Consumed at home Friday 31st October 2014. Pours dark conker Brown in colour with beige rim. Malty nose, quite chewy toffee, easy drinking for 10% must admit I was surprised at the abv. Dark sticky fruits, actually I am getting a boozibess come through now, warming. A little sweet, is that the hops just peeking through? It’s not bad. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Nice dark reddish brown with small off white head and lots of bubbles. Massive red fruits, red apple, caramel, malts. Also surprisingly strong aroma hops with light lemon. Some yeasty spices. Light sweet, very fresh feel for a 10% quadrupel. Pretty strong carbonation. Very nice take on the style.

Black beer, with tones of dark fruits, but yet with a hoppy note. Bit creamy as well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 300 ml at home, into a Trappist glass, ABV 10%
Deep red brown colour on the body with a small, light beige head on top, thi, with average retention, leaving light lacing around the glass and some foam islands on the beer’s surface.
Aroma has nuts, caramel, dark fruits with dates and light raisins, some ash too.
Taste is nutty, lots of dark fruits, sugar, the alcohol obvious but more on the finish actually, light caramel.
Medium body, soft carbonation.
Overall okay, I wouldn’t mind it being more intense though.
