Bottle @Bruges. Dark brown coloured beer with high carbonation and a huge but diminishing tan head. Slight sweet dark fruit aroma, hints of burned sugar and alcohol. Medium body with a sweet malt, slightly roasted flavor. Finish is quite sweety dry.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

(750 ml bottle from Bootleggers) Dark brown with reddish-amber highlights. Pale biscuit head that is well-retained. Aroma of dark fruit and chocolate. Mouthfeel soft, smooth and full. Beautiful, well-retained sheets of lacing. Flavor of dark fruit, chocolate and luscious caramel. Not a trace of ABV. Elegant, big and outstanding.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark brown beer with a medium and beige head. Aroma is cooked fruity, bananas, some dark fruits, raisins and hint of alcohol. Taste is malty, fruits, raisins, warming alcohol and herbal hoppyness. Full bodied, still quite easy to drink. Strong beer that is nicely balanced, there are nothing very special but still tastefull.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2013 Donker bier met dikke kraag. Stevig bier dat vol in de mond ligt en vol van smaak is. Overrijp fruit en port domineren de smaak.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2013 33cl, BB 11/2015. - Pours an unctuous dark brown/purple with solid off-white head. Aroma is is an aromatic and port-like syrup of sweet dark fruits. Taste is immensely layered as you would expect of a quadruple, ranging from intital malt and dark fruit sweetness with heavy alcohol to coffee roast dryness and pronounced hop spice shifting to take centre stage as it warms. Strange effervescence for a beer this heavy. Depending on your drinking needs of the evening, you could dub this mix willfully complex or dramatically confused. What remains is a unique and artfully crafted mahogani master of a quad.
