Liqueur-like mouth, roasted and chocolate malt, round and sweetened. There are spices, hints of vanilla, pepper, raisin, burnt sugar, confectioner’s shop, and plum-pear. Finish in silky, moderate bitterness and warmth of alcohol. Nice.

Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a pillow tan head. Left a lot of floaters in the beer. Lots of lacing left behind as well. Aroma was dark fruit, figs and plums. Flavor was amazing. Fruits, apples, figs and molasses. Alcohol was a non factor. Long finish. Great, great beer.

I am very excited about this Quadrupel because it just is not as sweet as many of its kind. De Halve Maan have chosen a more hoppy and fruit tart interpretation of their Quadrupel, and it translates into a delicious aroma of dried fruit (prunes, raisins and figs) with wonderful flavor notes as dark chocolate, the aforementioned dried fruit, rye bread and dark caramel . Large vinous richness and a hoppy end contributing little citrus aftertaste. This makes the taste experience not so sweet as many beers of this type often can be. It is a beer for long-term enjoyment in good company.

Superbe réussite encore une fois. Belle couleur foncée, bière maltée à souhaits, arômes d’alcool de fruits, quelques notes grillées et épicées. Les 11% sont par contre très violents.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy/murky amber-brown with a somewhat lacing and diminishing beige creamy big head. Aroma is bread, marzipan, raisin, nuts, caramel, bubblegum, hops, anise and brown sugar.
Taste is moderate sweet and light+ bitter. Body is near full, texture is creamy, carbonation is high. Finishes balanced with lingering caramel and a alcoholic burn. More restrained than your typical quad.
