Vells (714) - Riga, LATVIA - OCT 18, 2014
Quite typical dark sided Abt. Pleasant malty background, decent roast, bit dark choco, bit licorice and a lots of dark fruits, bit raisin. Feels bit yeasty. Bit warming, but not too pushy alco. Drinkable decent brew

Well, kinda good but simple quad. I like dark malty addition, but tho this could have more palate.

ClubGonzo (4115) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours a cloudy mahogany brown body with a huge rocky off-white head. Nose is caramel, raisins, nutmeg, candi sugar and hints of bread, toffee and dates. Taste is sharp tones of burnt caramel, cellar mold, raisins, metallic notes, alcohol and hints of bitter herbs, candi sugar and resin. Full body, high carbonation. The stinging alcohol/burnt caramel bitterness in this beer is way above my tolerance level for a quadrupel, or any other style for that matter. Harsh and non-palatable, this is not for me.

PapaVillum (468) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2014
33 cl, flaske, 10,0 % ABV, gave fra C. Handschuh fra tur i Belgien - tak! 9. oktober 2014. Mahognifarvet og ufiltreret Quadrupel med grim moccafarvet skumkrone. Hvorfor nu det? Store bobler blandt de små og meget uens skumtop, der også lydmæssigt bruser som en sodavand...ikke nogen lovende start. Resultatet er masser af gardiner i glasset. Skumtoppen svinder til knap 1 cm efter en halv snes minutter. Umiddelbart en lidt metallisk aroma med noter af plumcake og tørret frugt (Senere en dyb alkohol). Til gengæld er der en god solid og lidt mere humlet smag end sædvanlig Quadrupel. Henad noget skotsk Ale, der møder en stærk sødlig belgier. Nu fremkommer der chokolade i næsen, og endnu mere mørk bitterhed i smagen. Solid og fyldig krop med en fin lille surhed i starten af smagen, dernæst et sødme-overtag, dog i samspil med en malt- og humlebitterhed, hvorefter der afsluttes kraftigt bittert med en svag underliggende sødme. Konsistensen er sticky/fedtet og ganske cremet, mens mundfølelsen er medium blød. Karboneringen er lidt under medium og passer fint til det bitre "efterspil". Ikke en køn øl, men man skal ikke dømme alt på udseendet. En Quadrupel, når man ikke ønsker det for sødt.

monk191 (983) - California, USA - OCT 6, 2014
A decent quad, not the most interesting however. Pours a bright ruby red with a thick white head, looks more like a fruit beer. Smells of molasses and a bit of booziness. Taste is strangely smooth and basic. Lots of caramel and molasses, with a bit of booziness int he finish. Had on tap at the Trappist.

Vcoggins (53) - Cypress, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Light brown and slightly murky with a thin tan head. Dark fruit, plums, raisins, & figs on the nose. Tastes of fruitcake and caramel. Slick mouth feel. A nice quad.

Idiosynkrasie (3920) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2014
330ml bottle. Murky, dark brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white to beige head. Vinous, fruity aroma, notes of dark fruit, raisin, black cherries, blue grapes, a touch of chocolate and pumpernickel, hints of fruit parings. Taste is moderately sweet malty, bready, dark flan case, a touch of chocolate and pumpernickel, notes of dark fruit, dark berries, raisin; lasting dry finish with hints of fruit parings, aditionally some warming alcohol. Rich and complex, still very (dangerously) drinkable.

jjsint (831) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle from the Elm Tree, Cambridge. Plum-chocolate brown, hazy with a thin but respectable khaki head. Plums, raisins, currants & figs in the aroma. Milk chocolate. Freshly rolled cigars. A bit of pure alcohol astringency. Lovely but doesn’t quite hang together. Sweet fruitcake and caramel is quickly interrupted by a shocking bitterness. At first it jars but I grow to appreciate the balance over the course of the bottle. Notes of treacle tart and hazelnut abound. Full and luscious body, with exhilarating carbonation. Finish and aftertaste are a bit too bitter compared to what has come before. Very good, but would struggle to compete with the best quads.

0,33L bottle. Pours brown with light tan head. Aroma is dark fruits, caramel, alcohol. Flavor is sweet, malt, dark fruits, plums, caramel. Finish is long hoppy bitter. Overall: very nice brew.

Alengrin (2087) - BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2014
Vliegende Paard’s first creation, made at the ’Proef’brouwerij. Light beige, moussy, quickly dissipating head, colour a dark burgundy, misty; aroma of fondant chocolate, dates, bayleaf, caramelized chicory, coffee powder, whisky, liquorice, sherry. Deep candied fruity and malty taste, full, rich and smooth, bit resinous palate, bitterish finish with aromatic hops, roasted malts and warming alcohol which was just a little bit too strong for me. I’d call this an abt rather than a quadrupel too. Still, great beer, especially for a first one.
