Bona quadrupel, tot i que es nota molt l’alcohol. Recomanable predre-la poc a poc per descobrir diferents matissos.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle. Dark brown with medium to big head.
NOSE : burned malts with dried fruits like raisins, figs, pineapple and mango. Fresh banana and licorice.
SIP : smooth and creamy. Low to medium carbonation. The body is thick. The body texture is spot on. It marry well with sweet, burned and fruity flavors of this beer. Sweet chocolate tart with a hint of alcohol. Dark fruits and licorice give it a little sour and dry middle. Ending is deep and malty. Some spiciness in the finish. Alcohol is amazingly well hidden.
OVERALL : a great brew ; well balanced, smooth body and the drinkability is quite surprising for the amount of alcohol it has. Well done.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep brown color with a large tan head that fades slowly to ample lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, fruit, bit of nut with just a hint of alcohol. The taste is of Roasted malt, fruit, some nut and trace of chocolate as it warms. Has a subtle bitterness and a dry finish. Moderate body, smooth, almost velvety, clean with a richness throughout. As it warms it enhances to character. Great beer to end the day with, an easy sipper that is well worth checking out
