Bottle BB 2016. Dark red/brown beer, mostly opaque, sparkling, huge foamy beige head with nice lacing. Smell - sweet dried fruits, red berries and ribena, a touch of alcohol. Body is medium but very foamy. Taste - very sweet malts, sharp alcohol with a dark fruit and coffee vibe. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours reddish brown, dark, very minimal head. Nose is sweet, dark fruits, raisin, booze, maybe chocolate, rich malts, very aromatic. Taste is dark fruits, raisin, dried figs, chewy, a touch of chocolate, caramel malts, candy sugar. A little too boozy for me, but very complex and a good sipping beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Poured into a trappist glass. A sugary malt scent upon pour. Almost no head. Surprisingly smooth and not as heavily bodied as I thought it might be. Slight cherry taste with a bit of chocolate. Warm as it hits the chest. Potent in the alcohol department. Definitely a sipping beer but enjoyable and very tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from 1420, León.
In short: a boozy belgian quad.
Pours hazy dark copper-amber with frothy tan head, good head retention, some lacing. Roasty, liquor, caramel, nuts aromas. Medium body, viscous texture, average carbonation. Taste is sweet, liquor notes, caramel, roasted flavours, spicy, all among a nice alcoholic load. Despite this is quite well balanced. Very enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma - aroma is of caramel, dark fruit sugars, and spice.
Appearance - super dark brown, liquid is clean, the head originally frothy and then settles into a fluffy moat that also laces down around the edges of the glass. Head is somewhat off white.
Taste - the beer is more on the medium sweet side. Notes of dark fruit, spice and burnt sugar are present, rich alcohol is also abundant.
Palate - the body is of medium to full nature, the texture slick and thick, nuances of sticky as well. The carbonation lively in the tongue. The finish bitter and full of booze.
A hell of a night cap. I’m full of ABV. It’s super rich and sweet, which I’m not a fan of truly. It’s an ok Quad, but in truth I’m not a big fan of the style. It hits the marks, but to me it’s not enjoyable more like work.

At a tasting, many thanks MrHangover, almost no head, quite clear dark brown colour, aroma of dried cherries and apricots, caramel and light oxidised notes, fruity sour flavour with woody and sherry notes, a bit too light bodied. Quite old but still interesting.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2014 33cl in a Trappist glass. Pours a wonderful dark brown colour with a white head. Aroma is sweet and wonderful. The taste is toffee, caramel, malt and very (ginger)bready. Too sweet and sickly for the style and extremely susceptible to temperature.

Wow, packs a punch but doesn’t actually taste 11°. Great balance, sweet but dry enough to make it slip down very nicely. The best in bruge so far.

Bottle @john bull ålborg. Served too cold, but after waiting a bit a rich dark character shows. Notes of dark berries and bitter chocolate.
