Cloudy amber - brown beer, little pale tan head. Slightly dry palate. Toffee malt with aniseed spice. Some oxidisation. Red berry fruits buried a long way down. Aniseed dry finish. Disappointing - this is a tired beer.

66 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu, BBE 24.12.2010
Sweet aroma has raisins, dark fruits and some alcohol. Feels like barley wine. Surprisingly thin palate. Flavour has raisins, some alcohol, spices and dark fruits. A barley wine with some quadrupel features. Good.

660ml bottle @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki

Pours dark orange with a small bubbly head. Aroma has notes of bready malt, caramel, alcohol, toffee and spices. Taste is quite malty with notes of alcohol, hops and caramel. Alcohol burns through in the finish. Tastes more like a barley wine than a quadrupel.

lusikka (6043) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2011
660 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu, Helsinki. BBE 24.12.2010.
Pours a dark amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malts and caramel. Flavour of toasted malts, caramel, grass and some diminished hops that could’ve been great. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel a slightly warming finish with some sweet malts. Not really a Quadrupel anymore. More of a barley wine.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Verhaltener Antrunk von tiefgründig schokoladigem Malz, vergorene Fruchtnoten sind hier unverwechselbar vorhanden, dazu kommt eine eher frische Note von Kirschen. Der Hopfen ist recht leicht und verhält sich unauffällig, dass man ihn erst beim zweiten Mal erkennt. Auf dieser ziemlich würzigen Stufe verharrt das Bier nun länger, bevor das Malz noch etwas zulegt, besser gesagt die herb angehauchten Schokoladentöne. Das Bier ist sehr abgerundet und kommt weich daher, der Alkoholgehalt lässt sich nur an wenigen Stellen erahnen. Zum Ende erdig, voluminös malzig, kein Stück bitter. Dezent nach Kräutern. Ein Bier fürs deftige Weihnachtsessen! 11/11/12/12/13/12

500 ml bottle. Reddish amber body with a small, dense tan head. Aroma of dry fruit, raisins, light malt and alcohol. Flavor is malt, caramel, dry fruit and vinous alcohol. Sweet and harmonic, probably at it’s peak right now (December 2010).
