3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very dark amber colored pour with an off-white head. Really strange aroma for a quadrupel: tons of roasted malt and chocolate. There’s a decent sweetness, some toffee, and licorice. Tastes a touch boozy, but there’s a lot of roast and chocolate to cover it up. Some dark fruits, a bit of bitterness, and some licorice.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from 2 be. Pours pretty dark brown with a creamy/bubbly beige head. Aromas of earth and dark fruit. Med + body. Flavor is dark fruit, dark malt, earth, perhaps a hint of treacle, and maybe even tobacco. It’s heading towards dry, has a decent amount of bitter, and is quite tasty. I think it will stand up to some of the top rated quads.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
someone recomeded this when drinking black damnation. it was ’kind of the same’
beginning : pours brown, not even nearly black ! no big scent as well, whats the link between this and a black mes? nothing
but damn, after tasting this, this IS a darn good beer ! much better than expected. i think i recognize this one’s taste but cant figure out from where ( what beer) but anyway, this was cheap so i’ll definatly buy more ! recomeded very much !
okay, maybe just mentaly, but i do taste some hints like a stout... but it aint no stout ! bitter ( yeah thats right, i’m beginning to be able to name tastes ! finaly ) carbonation is just right in this one ... maybe on the ’ downside’ a little little bit to bitter in the aftertaste, and to ’sharp’ carbonation in the mouth ( not like the struise where it’s soft’ but this definatly is a positive surprise ! way to go prearis !

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!
