3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown full tan head. Very malty aroma, caramel, licorice, dark fruit. Heavy sweet flavor. Fully body, texture oily, lively carbonation, mild bitter finish with subdued alcohol taste. Overall an enjoyable brew, good for a cold night.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark brown.
No foam, no carbonation.
Aromas are very nice: candied fruit, yeast, roasty malt.
Mouth is a bit smoky, yeast focused with rich English cake-like notes ... but there is no carbonation at all.
Something was wrong with that batch. it will be worth tasting it again.

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!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
