330ml bottle from Bochka in Moscow. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is fruit, Turkish delight, and a sort of floweriness (perhaps rose). Taste is similar. Alcohol is extremely well masked.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle [kindly donated by bartlebier, thank you very much!]. Coffee brown colour with average, frothy, rock solid, fully lasting, off-white head. Dark fruity aroma, notes of dried dark fruit and their parings as well, minimally spicy, yeasty overtones. Taste belongs to the same genre, more intense, multifaceted and complex, with additional moderately sweet chocolate notes, oscillating between raisin, plum, blue grapes etc. Oily texture, slightly sticky palate. Pure pleasure.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330mL bottle BB 26-11-2016
Lively deep brown body, holds a nice creamy beige head, leaving clumpy lace.
Rich sugary aroma; treacley, molasses, dates & prunes. rum & raisin, some earthy phenolics.
Thick, viscous body, lifted creamy carbonation, serious length, smooth warming finish.
Particularly earthy on the body. There’s notes of dark brown/cooked sugars, but not particularly sweet, quite savoury, a slight bit tannic & dry with dark fruits & wood spice. Booze is not shy.
Tasty stuff, just a touch rough around the edges.

Intensywne w smaku oraz barwie. Piwo o niezwykłym charakterze który umiejętnie maskuje prawdziwą moc (11%).

Dark sided quad.Intense malt background, quite intense roast character, dried fruits, lovely candy, toffee, licorice, decent hop presence. Feels quite vinous with dry finish. Mostly sweet with decent bitterness. Lovely and highly enjoyable brew.

Well, once again- quad is not my style of choice. Typical dark quad. not bad, but could be more intense.

Palate - Soft carb, medium to full body, smooth. Sweet palate. Finish as main flavour, soft sweet smooth dark malt finish

Very dark, hazy brown. Thin head and sticky lacing. Aroma- liquorice, dandelion & burdock, sweetness. Taste reflects aroma. Thinner mouthfeel than expected and hides abv well. Classy brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle served in a Trappist chalice.
A: Pours a nice deep brown color forming a huge creamy fluffy tan head. Very good retention and many lacings left. A nice creamy layer remains forever
S: Very malty and yeasty with notes of alcohol. Dark fruits like plums and raisins. Caramel and candy sugar. Classic Belgian yeasts
T: Follows the nose. A classic Belgian Quad, very creamy and molasses. Very bready too. Strong notes of caramel, caramel malts, dark fruits and Belgian yeasts. End is quite bitter with notes of flowery hope. Balanced bittersweet combination
M: Heavy creamy molasses body with good carbonation. Bittersweet Belgian style aftertaste
O: Great Quad. Excellent beer. Recommend
