3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
09.01.13. Bottle. Large, light brown foam. Very dark, clear amber color. Aroma of some coffee and caramel, chocolate, buttery, sweet, maybe some cinnamon. Overall nice aroma. Taste is bitter, some coffee, alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel, pretty long bitter aftertaste.
Overall, nice aroma but otherwise average. I was told this is noticeably different from the original beer the competition winner submitted and won with.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy dark brown with a frothy, lasting tan head. The aroma contains a lot of malts, caramel, chocolate, marzipan dark fruits, yeast and toffee. It tastes medium to heavy sweet and light bitter, long roasted finish. Oily texture and soft carbonation. Ideal dessert beer; very good.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Has the classic look and mouthfeel, but lacks complexity and richness in the aroma. Alcohol is well hidden. Not bad but had better quad.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Syvän tummanruskea olut paksuhkolla beigellä, pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Karamellisen maltainen makea tuoksu, jossa myös lakritsaa ja suklaata, houkuttelee maistamaan. Maku samalla kertaa lakritsaisen ja suklaisen makea, mutta myös katkera. Makean täyteläinen ja ennen kaikkea paahdetun maltainen jälkimaku, jättää pitkän makean häivähdyksen suuhun. Todellinen herkutteluolut kylmiin talvi-iltoihin.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml, bottled March 25th 2014.
It pours t dark brown, over an inch of off white foam and kills it with the lacing.
Dark pitted fruit and caramel malt straight up in the smell. Hint of slight oxidation.
The taste is delightful. Dark pitted fruit with a mild sweetness from the malt and, again, hints of oxidation. Bit of cardboard and butterscotch. In a quantity that’s easily manageable for my palate.
I call it full bodied with medium carbonation.
An excellent example of a Quad here. I am glad that I got to enjoy a bottle all the myself.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown and full-bodied. Roasted malty aroma with spicy notes, and a similar rich malty flavour with notes of coffee. Full sweet taste with a solid, almost high, bitterness that is unusual for the style. Long and powerful finish. Overall, I like this quadrupel a lot. It is untraditional by being more malty than fruity, as well as being far more bitter and having coffee notes, but I find it well-balanced, and very tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Too sweet and uninteresting for me. Green apples, candy sugar, raisins, light hop grass notes. Carbonation is light and the fruit notes are a bit out of whack. Alcohol comes in at the end wth a light warmth
