33cl bottle. Dark brown colour with medium light brown head, excellent appearance. Aroma is like a sweet cake, taste is also sweet (fruity) with roasted malts and finishes with alcohol notes. Palate is pretty intense, one enjoys the flavours and the perfect carbonation. This is definetely one the best Quadruppels I’ve ever had.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark brown.
No foam, no carbonation.
Aromas are very nice: candied fruit, yeast, roasty malt.
Mouth is a bit smoky, yeast focused with rich English cake-like notes ... but there is no carbonation at all.
Something was wrong with that batch. it will be worth tasting it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33 bottle. Black with a big, milk-colored, creamy head. Aroma of dark malts, dark forest fruits, a touch of nuts and some sour notes, marzipan and raisins as well; only small hints of alcohol are detectable despite its huge ABV. Taste is quite sweet with certain sour tones acidic even, a lot of dark malts and chocolate, some fruits again. Full body, thick texture and flat carbonation. Finish is slightly astringent, has the sour notes previously mentioned emphasized. Overall the beer is really good but personally I am not fond of that sourness lingering in the background; could be improved.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with large gassy tan head. Aroma of a well liquored fruitcake. Taste is a three way battle between malt, dark fruit and alcohol. What make this beer so interesting is that this battle ends in a three-way tie.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap, 25 cl @ Brugs Bierfestival. Dark brown beer with a medium creamy beige head, perfectly tapped (!), nice lacing. Aroma is quite similar to the Straffe Hendrik Tripel: malty, with some hops and sweetness included, dark fruits are extra to the Quadrupel. The taste at first sight also: strong malty taste, light sweet beer, grassy finish of hops. But the further you drink, the more comes to the foreground: instead of malts you discover these are roasted malts, a caramel taste on the background, dark fruits are also coming to the foreground. The Quadrupel has the same specific taste as the Tripel (or you are fan who likes this taste or you aren’t), but has so much more to serve you. Excellent choice, this quadrupel! (btw: excellent beer for my 300th rating!)
