4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
How: Bottle, 1995 vintage, best before 2000-05-09.
Where: Shared with Halle.
Appearance: Dark brown colour with a small beige head.
Aroma: Cellar, fruit, limestone, cognac. Strong cellar aroma at first, that fades after a while and gives room to fruitiness.
Body: Medium body, very low carbonation.
Flavour: Roasted malt, sweet, rum, raisin. Fruity finish.
Comment: There are some off-flavours but it more adds to the complexity than destroys the beer. Aroma and flavours have developed in a very interesting way.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark ruby color with a huge head that lasts well. The body is clear but has some large yeast particles floating around. Nose has peaches, yeast, caramel and butter. Taste starts off with a caramelly sweetness, followed by a strong bitterness that stays on the palate. The finishing bitterness is atypically strong, I almost think that this might have deteriorated when my cellar went too cold during the winter. It is nice but i’ll have to revisit this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky red/brown colour with large off-white, frothy head. Smell is very dubbel-like - dark fruits, bread, pepper with some alcohol too. Taste is sweet with plums, raisins, figs, bread, pepper. Not as full bodied as I'd like though. Very good beer but destined to suffer from comparisons with its incredible big brother quadrupel.
