Rare beer club offering. Big bottle into short tulip glass. Hard pour produced huge thick tan head which unusual for a quad. Beer is very dark almost black. Aroma of fig, alcohol and dried fruit. Taste is sweet with a complex xmas cake taste with hints of cherry and oak. Lingering bitter hop aftertaste does not sit that well with me. Decent quad but I would not chase it down.

Aroma van wijn en port met hinten van bessen. Donkerbruin troebel uiterlijk. Uitgebreid portig wijn smaak met houtig karakter maar ook zurig en in bitter in de afdronk. Stevige zure bittere nasmaak.

pours dark brown, creamy frothy head. aroma of slight dark fruit, wood and spice. Taste, I get a very nice blend of the wood, spice and dark fruit. not one out does the other. the yeast is a bit of a heavy hitter in this one but does not overwhelm. Very balanced and one of the better Quads to have fresh. Not as complex as many others but creamy, smooth, easy to drink and delicious. Soft on the palate.

Not the best thing to come out of Proefbrouwerij, but a good beer. Dark and malt, so more of an abbot style than a quad, which I consider to be more like a tripel in color and flavor. Surprisingly dry, cardamom, and a little fruit. Nice white head, a great looking beer that is solid in its own right but doesn’t stand up to Achel, Rochefort, etc.
