3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Pours murky and brown with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Great retention. The restrained bouquet furnishes subtle notes of fudge, nutty malts and ethanol. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced, offering nuttiness, deeply roasted malts and a nice fudge component. Charred, raspy, dry finish. More reminiscent of a Danish or Dutch imperial stout than a Belgian quad. Bottle courtesy of Mathieu87!

33cl bottle pours a translucent, deep garnet amber with a frothy, creamy, slightly off white head. Bready nose, pumpernickel, grainy, chocolate, malt, a little dark candy sugar, toffee, prunes, plums. Flavor has a great chocolate note that I didn’t expect, malty, brown sugar, bready, caramel, some light astringency, raisin, dark fruit. Dry, bready finish. Very surprised. I expected a sugar bomb and it wasn’t. Pleasant, dry and drinkable.
