3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Bruce! Pours amber with a rich, creamy off-white head. Aroma is ripe, dark fruit, and some caramel. Flavor follows and is somewhat bitter, maybe a bit overly so for the style. Body is full, and well carbonated. Really nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bb05/16. A glowing mahogani purple pour oozes fallen autumn leaf, dried dark fruit peel phenolics and a generous whiff of jenever - a literalist welcome to rural East Flanders in late october. Taste translates more layers of chestnut peel and woody, shrubby bitterness, old & dried raisin caramels rather than really dark fruit-infused sweetness, quickly petering out in a lingering astringent sensation with more distinct jenever ethanol notes joining in. Yeast spice working in the back, adding near-vegetal astringency. Expected this to be much more well-rounded, dulcet, complex - especially after having the thick Quadrocinno version fresh on cask at BBF 2013. Would make sense to BA this basic version to smooth out & add some more depth for its ethanolic buck.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Nice chocolat brown colour with a creamy coloured foam. Smells like caramel, chocolate, a little bit coffee and a bit roasty, at the back you also have some alcohol. The taste is medium bitterness, and a bit umami. You have nice chocolat and coffee taste its also has a bit smoke. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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
