4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Classic quad profile. Aromas and flavors of dark fruit, prune, caramelized stonefruit, banana, molasses, cola, spices and Belgium yeast. Smooth, medium-medium-plus body, with fine carbonation and a touch of bitterness in the relatively sweet/semi-dry finish.. Alcohol is very well integrated. Well balanced. Elegant, lingering nuances of cola, spice and Belgium yeast. Solid, though not my absolute favorite. Overall, I guess I prefer a little more concentration in my quad. This was elegant throughout, which I'm sure will make many people happy.

Dark tea brown with floaters, no head. Smells of caramel, tomato. Taste is like a sweet tea, alcohol burn, caramel, tannins, a bitter tea like quality almost like a rye bread a little hop spice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Die Farbe erinnert an Cola. Dunkelbraun rötlich klar mit hellbraunem unregelmäßigem Schaum. Geruch: Süß, getrocknete Pflaumen, karamellisierter Zucker. Geschmack: überraschend wenig süß, dafür überraschend bitter. Aromen von Erwachsenenlakritz und Kaffee sowie Röstmalz.
Das Bier verspricht sehr viel in der Nase, kann das dann im Geschmack nicht ganz halten. Dennoch gutes Bier!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Yard House - CIncinnati. Pours a cloudy brown color with a small off-white head that settles into a ring and leaves spots of film. Notes of figs, pepper, caramel, brown sugar, toast, sweet bread, cake, earth, and dates. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet and actually kind of toasty mouthfeel. Rich and tasty. ABV is pretty much masked. Good quad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle@home in Trappist glass@approx 8 degrees C. Pours almost black, which turns dark red when you put it to a light., with a substantial beige head. Aroma of vanilla and caramel. Very stringent taste with roasted malt, liquirice and a distinct bitterness in the long aftertaste - bordering on grapefruit. High alcohol content asserts itself a little too much. This was a young example BBF June 2017 and I am sure that several years cellaring will improve this beer. Will try it. Oh, and almost an extra decimal for that golden half moon face on a black background on the cap... perhaps the best cap I have ever seen.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Opaque black color that turns into dark red with a light. Light brown head. Aroma has plums, caramel, ripe fruits, licorice and coffee. Taste is first a bit sweet with some sour aspects but turns into quite dry and somewhat bitter long aftertaste. Flavors of caramel, licorice, coffee, port, plums, ripe fruits. Quite intense and interesting one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours inky black with no head other than soapy bubbles; tobacco and dark chocolate on the nose; chalky and bitter on the tongue... tastes like the westie 12 I had where I accidentally poured the sediment into the glass, but this time, I don’t think I poured the sediment into the glass. too bitter and chalky by half

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Robe brune, mousse peu persistante. Nez sur le chocolat amer, la fourrure, les épices, touche de banane. Bouche à l’attaque ample, une matière moyenne, des amers marqués et une finale un peu abrupte. Bière bien faite mais loin de mes préférées.
