4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Got this bottle from @Beergium a few days ago and today it’s #friday so why not open it?
Best before May 2019 so it should be drinkable... ;)
The beer pours hazy, dark brown, nutty colour. Beige, fluffy, creamy, beige head.
Nose: Nuts, toffee, roasted caramel malt, molasses, raisin and candied sugar.
Taste: Oh! This is good! Again candied sugar, molasses, nuts, oak, spices, black pepper, brown sugar, raisin, dried fruit, almond, coffee and honey. The taste gives so much more than the nose! I’m impressed!
Mouthfeel: Creamy, soft, sweet and bitter. A bit alcohol warmth. Medium body. High carbonation.
A bottle of LOVE!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Though not one of the elite Quads, it is certainly a beer to be admired. Pours a dark mahogany color with a thick off-white head. Aromas and flavors of caramel, dark fruit, candied sugar and a tinge of alcohol. The body was pretty thick for a Quad and somewhat chewy. Certainly not a beer that I could drink more than 9 or 10 oz of in one sitting due to its heavy body and sweetness.

Nice and decent quadrupel but feels a bit too easy to drink. In taste caramel, toasted notes. Sweet and sticky. Good but cannot be compared to the big quad players.

Strong beer... very dark. Taste of forest fruits, sticky in throath. Nice foam. One is fine, two is ok, but three would be to much ;-)

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excellent. The aroma was outstanding..had a corked bomber, and popping it resulted in immediate awesome. Hoppy enough that it balances out the sweetness you normally get from a quad. The beer is ’sticky’ and coats the mouth along with having a lacing head that you just about have to spoon out.

0,3l Flasche. Dunkelbraunes Bier mit toller Schaumkrone. Riecht nach Röstmalzen und leicht nach Weinbrand. Im Geschmack angenehm, sehr gut abgestimmt. Es schmeckt nach Röstmalzen und Kaffee.

This is my second time trying this. The first was on tap at the Yard House a few weeks ago. This rating is for the bottled version, acquired from Julio’s. Poured into a snifter. A very dark chestnut brown color with a huge frothy tan head. Settles to a thick pillowy lace. Deep earthy-fruit aromas and flavor. Dark candi sugar is nicely balanced by a dry earthy bitterness. Chewy and silky texture. Fantastic!
