Bottle. 2006 vintage enjoyed in 2013. Hazy brown liquid with small to medium light tan head. Aroma of port, dark fruit, licorice, chocolate, bread, grapes, light bubblegum and toffee. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of licorice, port, dark fruit and roasted malt. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice, the roasted malt works well.

Bottle @ Kiss The Kitchen Floor or better known as ZZT VI (2013): kindly shared by DutchDrebus: Labeled as Monks Brew:
Medium sized creamy beige colored head on top of a deep dark amber colored beer.
Aromas of tobacco, rye, vegetables, pickles, hint of smoke, sauerkraut and a hint of alcohol.
Flavours of nuts, spices, malts, peach, alcohol, some nail polish remover and bitters.
Aftertaste of alcohol, spices, bitters, malts and grains.
Low carbo, soft but spicy mouthfeel, pretty full body and a creamy texture.
Too much alcohol, strong alcoholic and less else like taste... Unfortunate.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l bottle. Reddish dark brown body, off-white head. Aroma of sour cherries and some candi sugar. More like a fruit lambic than a quad based on the nose. Tastes like sour cherries, strawberries and some candi sugar. Not bad, but cannot be compared to the Belgian quads.

Draught @ Gastropub Nordic. Rated on 27.04.2009
Aroma has spices, some anise, coriander and raisins. Flavour is somewhat spicy with coriander, anise, ripe fruits, raisins, caramel and sweetish malt. Nice, like a mixture of Rochefort and Jacobite Ale.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle. Deep dark brown color. Some light manages to squeeze through if I hold glass against the light, giving it to some red hue. Completely stale, although barmaid gave her best to put head on top. Seems that this beer can’t handle a head. Burnt plastic bags, caramel, burnt sugar in aroma. First impression is not good. And the taste!? Ohh the taste is like boring eastern european malt liquors. The only difference is that this one is not sold in 2L plastic bottles for 70 cents a piece. You really should.
