YUM MIKKELLER Pours a chocolate ruby with a 1/4" bubbly head. Looks great! Can you say smokey? Spicy? how about a little of both with a nice raisin undertone intertwined with sugary sweetness. Nice tangy peach, coriander, spice, and very sweet. I can’t place the smoke but it’s there but less in the taste than in the smell. There’s a thickness to this beer but not to bad. Leaves a nice creamy coating on the palate. This beer is a big hit

Bottle. Grainy brew, muddy color. Sweet fruit, vinous, port character. Probably better when fresh, but still very interesting.

SDalkoholic (2135) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Bottle from Pizza Port bottle shop: Poured a medium brown color with some dark tint too it while a thin layer of head was created and showed specs of sediment as if it were sand resting in the foam. The nose is mild with only a minimum amount of hops and slightly toasted malt to be smelt, so it didnít turn me on right away. Flavors are somewhat bland and go unnoticed, although, there is an undeniable presence of toasted malts and some strong healthy yeast, but I just didnít find much I liked about this Monkís brew to talk about.

Hazy amber with a medium beige head. Sweet aroma with honey, roasted malt, overripe fruits, yeast and caramel notes. Sweet flavour with roasted malt, caramel, overripe fruits, hops and cellar. Slightly oxydized. Nice. Thanks Jens!

Another very last bottle from the cellar of the brewer - Thanx for sharing your last drops of these early goodys. Off cause its not all fair to rate these ones this late - but they are still blowing away some true attitude, so even though they have changed caracter a bit since their younger days, they are still great. The pour is light grumsy brown like swamp water with a nice light crown. The aroma is nice and different with laqurice root, soap and fresh cutted hay. The taste is very De Dolle-like with a high carbonation. Itís very alive and sparkling with a sweetness as a traditional trappist brew. The alcohol is up front and agressive with a finish that has malty flavours along with caramel and marzipan. Its full-bodies but ends up very dry in your mouth. A nice and crazy Quad. Thx Mikkel

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2009
Bottle@Home. Port aroma with black grapes and a little dusty. Hazy, amber colour, irregular off-white head, no lace. Rather sweet, port, banana, fruity, white grapes, pineapple. Sparkling. Powerful, complex, bit past itís prime Iím afraid.

Bottle. Black and quite lively on opening. Full bodied and powerful.Poured with a medium head.Complex range of flavours-all of them pleasant. Should carry a warning, this beer is dangerously easy to drink.
