4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a tulip glass. Two and half fingers of head on a deep brown colored body.
The aroma is a great blend of caramel, apple, pear and other bright fruits.
The taste has a big dose of caramel malt sweetness, some fruit, black licorice and mild bitter finish.
The texture is fairly smooth with moderate carbonation.
Very well done..

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!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottled) Drinking 11% Quadrupel beer at 1.45 in the afternoon is one of the perks of entrepreneurialism ; this is actually pretty swillable , with the booze being cool and satisfying. A rich caramel palate ,lots of complex tart fruit esters, both cherry and plum..brown candy sugar covered in silky butteriness. Some floral hops lurk under the dark flavours...

I’ve been sitting on this one since my pre-RB days. Okay, that’s not so long. Looks incredible - Deep tar pit brown with a big tan head that has no business on a beer this strong. So much lace I can barely read the Chimay logo on the opposite side of the chalice. Smells like old currants, dates and sweet baking spices. Yeasty bittersweet malt flavor that is only a letdown relative to the aroma. Very thick texture but smooth and easy drinking. Finish that dries out slowly. Highly recommended.
