4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at Charlotte Oktoberfest ’05; my first quadrupel. I’d been waiting for awhile to get my hands on this one and was delighted to finally find it. Ruby red coloring, almost brown, with a light off-white head. This had a very sweet flavor with hints of raisins, maybe plums... finish was also sweet with some hops to back it up. Very complex and very good.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Huge off-white/tan head, fades very quickly. Rich ruby brown colour. First pour is fairly clear, second half is much more murky with yeast sediment. Aroma of plum, dried fruit, raisin, Flavours match but very rich, nice sweetness amplifies the plum, dried fruit, cherry. Slight alcohol in after-taste. Med body, dry finish. Complex and very nice.

Dark ruby, hazy, beautiful thick head. Aroma of dried fruit, port wine, spice, syrup. Medium to full body. Oily. Average carbonation. In flavour notes of dried fruit, port wine, grassy hops. Quaffable, very warming, still no boozy feel. Excellent balance. Delicate bitterness. Very nice

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Real dense and toasty with some nutty character. Complex fruits in aroma and taste. For how thick it was the carbonation and palate were great, well balanced.

it has powerful, balanced and delicious taste, but i think it’s overrated a bit.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Small bottle. Medium bodied, creamy. Huge head. Full of strong aromas - plum, raisins, caramel, bread, yeast. Sweet, with gentle bitter finish. Average carbonation which softly bites tongue. Perfect in every sip. One of the most memorable beers to which, due to availability, I like do come back.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
dense quad: sticky cane sugar, toasty roasted malts, pungent hops, black truffle, leather, clove, black pepper, stewed beef, vinous heat. no component outweighing the other. like a tight young claret, with everything in the right place, i think my bottle would have loosened with time. one to stick away.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours dark ruby, low head, a bit of lacing. Lots of ripe sweet fruits in the aroma, port wine taste, but not as heavy. Dark and complex, sweet and still refreshing. What an excellent beer!
