In Leuven at the ZBF. I have tested the coffee infusion version. Very nice experiment and no other notes spotted unfortunately besides of coffee. I have had the regular version last year and it was really nice, unable to comment now.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small bottle from ABS drinks. Very dark pour, almost black brown pour with lacy and foamy off white head. Aroma is really roasty, lots of toasted malt, rich caramelized aromas, much roastier and less on the fruity side than most quads. Taste is boozy, rich roasty malts, toasted, burnt caramel sweetness. Palate is full bodied with high carbonation. I found it a tad too bitter for a strong dark belgian, but it was pretty easy drinking.
