3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice brown quadrupel but over valuated, we have something better in belgium. Caramel, dried and dark fruits as plum and figs, brown sugar. Okay, but body needs more softness and it is a bit more in the barleywine english way. Expensive.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 650 ml. bottle with an expiration date of February 2014 but this is a Quad that should last longer than that. And it seems to three months later. I get a beautiful reddish-brown pour with a full off-white head that fades but laces. The aroma is vibrant with Belgian sugar sweetness, yeast, dark fruits, molasses, and spice. The body is medium to full. The fruitiness of the nose is far more reserved in the taste but I still get plenty of Belgian malts, Belgian sugar, and biscuity and mild finish. Reminds me more of a quality Dubbel but I enjoyed it.
