3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Presentation: 12 oz. brown bottle served in an oversized wine glass.
Appearance: It has a dark, deep amber color and develops a tan, one finger head. Eventually it dissolves into a ring that sticks around. The lacing is incredible, it covers the whole glass and slowly drips down.
Smell: A sweet malt scent dominates, complemented by a strong ripe fruit note. There’s also an alcohol sting in the background.
Taste: Basically a mirror image of the nose. A strong and sweet malt taste dominates, and is accompanied by ripe fruit and cranberry notes.
Mouthfeel: It’s creamy and smooth, very drinkable. It finishes dry and despite the sweetness it is not cloying whatsoever.
Overall: An amazing beer, with a lot of sweetness from the malt and fruit notes, but so well balanced that it’s not cloying. Despite the high ABV and the fact that it is a bit strong, it’s surprisingly easy to drink.

From a 12 ounce bottle. Turbid red brown with light carbonation. Candied nose. Good bite from the alcohol, a bit of caramel perhaps. Warms your mouth and throat going down followed by a tingle. Can feel the alcohol in less than a minute. Enjoy this damn good beer responsibly.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy copper with a large head.
Aroma can be described as rum and raisin chocolate fudge, with some rose-like perfumous notes too.
Flavours are not as complex or rounded. Some sultana notes, brown sugar and peppery phenols and booze. Pretty hot.

Somewhat of an alcohol flavor. No bitterness. Low maltiness. Last part of a beer pairing.

bottle. Pours brown with enormous beige head. Aroma of cherries along with plenty of Belgian yeast and fruitiness. Sweet flavor with some spiciness. Full bodied with some chocolate in the finish. Nuanced and good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours brown with lasting tan foam. Rich malt and yeast aroma with some yeast and alcohol. Flavors of near-wine grape, with less sweet than the style typically, with bitterness and tartness starting mid-sip and lasting with a dryness. As this warms, the cherry is detectable, but it seems more detrimental to the style than beneficial. I’d like to try exactly this without the kriek.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Amber color with a soapy beige head that lingers. Great lacing throughout. Aromas of caramel, maple syrup, currants, prune and some molasses. Full body with a rich syrupy mouthfeel. The fruit and maple really stand out as it warms up. Nice smooth and rich finish.

There is something very incomplete and lazy about this beer compared to a Belgian quadrupel. I hope what I had was from a bad batch....

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2015 Pours red-brown with heavy sediment. Creamy tan head. Aroma of trop fruit, green apple, boozy malts, toffee and black cherry soda. Taste is same with a sneaky alcohol finish and berries with black cherry and dark fruits. Mouthfeel is light-medium. Good heat in the finish.
