4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 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 - hugely nourishing. Perfectly balanced and hardly any bitterness. Sits somewhere between St. Bernardus ABT and Rochefort 10. An underrated beer and one I will continue to seek out when I can. Exemplary.

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.

Pours dark brown with only a thin wispy head, which doesn’t seem right. Maybe a bad seal or it got shorted on the yeast? Fantastic caramel and plum aroma hits even before lifting the glass. Taste is similar with hints of roasted coffee. Feels a bit flat. Will definitely need to sample another bottle.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 Bottle from Beers of Europe. Mid to dark brown, reasonably translucent. A fair bit of carbs and khaki head. Full aroma of molasses and plum pudding. The taste is sweet but manages to stay rounded. There’s a full alcoholic kick as well. Very warming on a horrid January night.

Bottle, 11%. Good caramelly aroma, creamy with a distinct alcohol note. Almost clear dark brown colour. Small frothy off-white head. The flavour is sweet and alcoholic. Has a little tobacco and salt. Fruity notes in the finish. Warming alcohol, but not boozy at all.

Bottle. Pours cloudy dark brown with airy light tan head. Sweet, clear aroma of malt, caramel, fruit, and chocolate. Ditto flavour, with touches of coffee. Bitter, boozy notes. Sweetish finish. Nice. Really nice. I just love Quadrupel :-)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear dark red pour with tenacious off white foam. Aroma is quite complex, rich malty notes (brown sugar, caramel), fruity, plums, molasses, blackberries, spice. Taste is sweet, quite nutty, lots of fruits (berries) with a sweet caramel finish, alcohol quite well hidden. Lingering spiciness. Palate is rich and creamy, with light prickly carbonation. Good stuff!
