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.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2014 Vanaf het moment dat je het flesje opent komt het aroma je tegemoet. Donkerbruin bier met kleine cremekleurige schuimkraag. Geuren en smaken van koffie, rozijnen, chocolade, toffee en mout. Superlekkere en warme, beetje stroperige afdronk. Een absoluut meesterwerkje dit bier.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled on 10/9/2013. Pours moderately hazy deep ruby brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big cherry, orange peel, raisin, plum, pear, apple, red grape, caramel, brown sugar, toast, brown bread, light chocolate, clove, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of big orange peel, raisin, plum, pear, apple, cherry, red grape, caramel, brown sugar, toast, brown bread, clove, pepper, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Moderate earthy spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of orange peel, raisin, plum, pear, apple, cherry, red grape, caramel, brown sugar, toast, brown bread, clove, pepper, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly slick mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible quadrupel! All around awesome complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
