3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mogwai Mat & Bar. Smell is not very inviting, though sweet and fresh. Pours brown with a small beige head. Taste is sweet and easy. Some raisins and a hint of malts. Palate is a bit to easy for a quadrupel beer. Overall a good alternative for many of the more famous trappist beers

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells great candi sugar, dark malt, sweet and earthy hoppyness. Hazy dark brown with quickly dissipating head. Tastes nice, upfront candi sugar and brown sugar hits the palate, finishes mineral and sweet without being too cloying. Not much hoppyness in the back end, alcohol noticeable during exhalation through the nose. Medium carbonation/body. Not super complex but a quite well balanced quad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice stout head here sits atop dark copper with some red flickers. Aroma was a little muddled and individual notes are hard to decipher. A little clove, marzipan and alcohol. Bereft of Quad’s usual dried fruits. A little dull.
Convincing dry, full bodied feel to the palate > What you would expect from higher abv. Some soft dried fruit but suppressed by more maltiness. It feels more Strong Ale and Quad. Very little yeast character. A little one-toned and tiresome.

Drank with Marijn and Rik at Riks place. Okay beer. Tastes not that much like Westvleteren etc in my opinion, not that sweets. Has some hints of a black IPA. Fine beer, not great.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, caramel with a thin, off white head. Aroma has creamy, sweet notes of candy sugar, caramel, toffee, dark fruits, and raisins. Taste is a big sweet. Dark fruits, caramel, and a bit of a tartness. Almost a medicine tinge. Medium-full body and carbonation. Slightly syrupy in the mouth but pretty clean. Overall tasty but with a tinge at the end. Dark fruits and caramel with a hint of medicine/tartness at the end. Will age a few to see how ot develops.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
With Daria & Filip @MBR, Zagreb. Poured a very dark body with a big off white head. Heavy malty aroma with strong notes of apple compote, fruity, berryish, but doesn’t overextend itself. The taste is, obviously built on a solid sweet malty backbone, fruity, creamy, some notes of grapes, clean and balanced, only slightly oily. All in all a damn well executed beer.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bella schiuma, bel naso (zucchero candito, frutta scura, uva passa, malto tostato, spezie) riscaldato da un alcol pervasivo ma non bruciante. Robusta più che rotonda al palato, più abboccata che tostata, il luppolo non ne abbatte completamente la componente dolciastra, che rimane lungamente presente; relativamente carbonata, solo nel finale una nota torrefatta riesce a ricondurre alla ragione l’imponente impatto fruttato, lasciando un palato morbido ma non saturo. Consolatoria, riscaldante, tranquillizzante: una birra da tenere a riscaldarsi in una bella coppa sul bracciolo della poltrona.
