3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It pours an almost clear body, dark ruby in color and with a dense, light beige head. Lots of sugar and dried fruits on the nose, some anise, and a touch of roasted malts. The flavor is dominated by dried fruits, with anise, white sugar, dark sugar and some bitterness. Medium to full body, pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish with dried fruits. Certainly a nice one, but not the typical quadrupel. 121102

Bottle - a near black, near perfect beer. This was quality. Lots of liquorice, coffee, chocolate, fruit, malt... oh, so many. Very complex beer, well balanced with a boozy warm kick at the end. Need another now! Waiter!

17th Oct 2012 Brugge: after draught De Garre and Gulden Draak my wife dragged me out of De Garre and into the Red Rose, here I choose a 33cl bottle of this.
Coming in the bottle. the correct glass was offered to me to pour my beer into; I did.
This is a dark, brooding brew: with a creamy head in both colour and texture.
The nose is all about malty molasses: so strong and sweet nothing else got a look in. Luckily the taste wasn’t as sweet as the aromas suggested. The malts were certainly the dominant flavour but there is a hop bitterness stopping the beer becoming a malt smoothy and the alcohol doesn’t hide away: it is very prominent once the beer has touched your lips.
Looked great and in such a fine bar it is difficult not to score it highly: but I’m being objective and truthful in my numbers, it deserves the scores it’s getting from me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Dark and hazy ruby colour, frothy medium-sized head. Aroma is full of dark fruits, dried plums and fermented fruits. A whiff of alcohol mixing with molasses and slightly burnt sugar. Pleasant, coocked perry, banana and colves from the yeast. Dryish yeasty, surprisingly bitter flavor let darker malt and sugar aromas shine. Soft and smooth, deviously light palate. A very well balanced quadrupel.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
average frothy light brown head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. flat thick brown body. aroma: wood alcohol, mild coffee, dark bread, moderate malty. if: moderate sweet light bitter. ff: moderate sweet bitter; long duration. palate: medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, light astringent moderate alcoholic finish. Dulçor alcoólico, com nuances amadeiradas e background lembrando frutas vermelhas, forte aquecimento alcoólico, não escondendo nada de seus 11%, espuma vaporiza após algum tempo, dando a bela impressão de um latte cremoso, amargor pungente de álcool dá um ligeiro toque salgado ao paladar, charmoso, o final ainda tem uma ligeira reviravolta, trazendo nuances adstringentes ao retrogosto, quase cítricas e acéticas, mas dominadas pelo teor alcoólico. Saborosa, mas a última característica me pareceu defeito em relação a outras grandes representantes do estilo, como a La Trappe Oak Quadrupel, que apresenta maior qualidade geral e gama de detalhes em relação à esta. 18,90. Com vencimento em 11/14, a crescente adstringência não deveria se destacar tanto como fator negativo, conseguindo até mesmo superar o teor alcoólico após o ganho de temperatura da cerveja. Sabor perde dois pontos do inicio ao final da degustação, devido ao ganho de adstringência.60 s
