ClubGonzo (5468) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a dark ruby-hued brown body with a medium off-white head. Aroma is red wine, wood, caramel, raisins, red berries, hints of toffee, grains, straw and brown sugar. Taste is raisins, red wine, wood, caramel, hints of grains, brown sugar, alcohol and red berries. Full body, medium carbonation. Nice, smooth, strong and loads of BA flavors, while still retaining the quad feel.

Bottle shared with BBGTC. Pours a cloudy coppery body with a small head. Aroma of wood and red wine. Hints of leather, raisins and balsamic vinegar. Taste is fairly balanced. Hints of both sweet malts and salt and sour balsamic vinegar. Body is close to full with medium co2 levels and a oily texture.

37.5 cl bottle I prefer this one from the original. Brown, beige foam. Nose of caramel, sugar, red wine, oak, acidity. Medium body. Again the bog notes of the oak on the mouth. Nice!

TheJvd (1206) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle at 2nd tuesday tasting. Pours brown with a red glow and a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt, blue cheese, red wine is very present, some oak and some red fruit. Taste is very nice with a sweet malty base, red wine, some oak, fruity and baslamic vinegar. Taste also reminds me a bit of Rodenbach. Really nice stuff this. Quite thin for a quad, but tastes really good.

MrHangover (4027) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy, brown beer with a small, off white head. Aroma is blue cheese, port, fresh, fruity apples and has a clear presence of wine oak! Wow.. awesome. Flavor is has some fruity funkyness to it with a sweeter base. Must be the quad influences mixed with the wine oak. This is incredibly well balanced between sweet and sour, beer and wine. Well done!

KyotoLefty (9405) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle. Nose of caramel, acid, cherry, poop. Muddy-ass brown with red, lace. Flavors are oak, cherry, vinegar, chocolate, caramel. Nice sour edge. Light and hides its alcohol well. Not sure if I like sour abts, but this is decent.

maekchu (3513) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. As "Mikkeller Barrel-Aged Monk’s Brew -- Dark Belgian Wild Ale aged in Red Wine Barrels". Sourish, coffee, some sugary aromas. Light clear brown with a thin tan head. Mix of sweet and sour flavors. The high alc. level is not readily appparent. Thin body. Pleasant stuff, but oh-so mild.
