3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample shared by a friend. Dark brown pour with a thin beige head that recedes quickly to a wispy film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit and chocolate. Full-bodied and somewhat chewy with flavors of chocolate malt, plums, caramel and yeast. The finish is fruity up front with a toasted malt aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. L B. BB D/13. From Belgium. Courtesy of Brandman.
Dark brown colour with a small greyish white head.
Surprisingly sweet malty aroma with some tartness, alcohol and saltiness.
The flavour is salty soy sauce, dark fruits, cola, malt, some sweetness, mild yeast and a bit of hops. Not very complex nor interesting. Some alcohol there too.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My Bottom Line:
Pecan pie and bubblegum mingle with charming flowers and cocoa in this most elegant Quadrupel.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam decorates a brown that’s as shiny as can be (for that color).
-Body is light and fluffy, which is impressive for such a potent brew.
-The nutty character could also evoke chestnuts.
-Alcohol warms up the finish, but delicately so.
