4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nose has toffee, malts, alcohol and a touch of vanilla. Flavors are very complex. I get fruits (pears and oranges), spicey bread, some licorice. A background of brown sugars, some vanilla, alcohol, and yes even a little coconut. It has a full body and finishes slighty bitter and dry. I think this is a great beer and should get a second chance if it was rated poorly. It is very interesting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Pours dark chestnut brown with billowing tan head that sticks around with decent lacing. Aroma is full of dark fruits: plums, cherries, figs, dates are prominent. Also notes of spices, brown sugar, and a touch of booze. Taste is again full of the deep dark fruits alongside spicy yeast complexity, caramel, deep maltiness, and a definite note of alcohol and hop bitterness. A well balanced quad that doesn't quite hit the heights of its other Belgian peers - still a bloody good beer though.

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.
