4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Dark and hazy ruby colour, frothy medium-sized head. Aroma is full of dark fruits, dried plums and fermented fruits. A whiff of alcohol mixing with molasses and slightly burnt sugar. Pleasant, coocked perry, banana and colves from the yeast. Dryish yeasty, surprisingly bitter flavor let darker malt and sugar aromas shine. Soft and smooth, deviously light palate. A very well balanced quadrupel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2010 vintage, carefully cellared at my local distributors warehouse. Pours dark brown with a fair amount of sediment and a khaki head that settles down to a thicker ring and leaves some spots of soapy lace. Nose involves dark candy sugar, some caramel apple, brown bread, pinot noir, some alc vapors, plums. Quite sweet, somewhat bitter, a touch tart. Full bodied, chewy texture, oily, fair action, some alc heat, with a drying toasty bitter finish. Pretty badass, I must say. Lots of cool shit going on. Restrained, yet powerful.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark amber/brown pour with a small off-white head. Aromas of dark fruit, brown sugar, and yeast notes. Lots of malt on the palate with plum and almost a port like finish to it, the brown sugar character also shines through in the finish. The abv is well-hidden too. Delicious.
