2013. The beer is just perfect. One of the best quads I ever tasted. The barrel aging is subtil and perfectly balanced. What a beer !

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle from Beer Tempel, Brugge (back in 2012 - sitting waiting, patiently ever since). Deep ruby red to pitch body, firm lasting beige head. Nose is liquorice, blackcurrants, cherries, plus a certain booziness. Taste is warming, lots of the expected rum soaked cake fruits, lots of wood, deep and rich. Best I’ve had since last Christmas!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice malty belgian strong ale. Pour a beautiful deep red with a thick tan head. Smells of maltiness, cherry and coconut. Taste has some coconut upfront, adding to the maltiness, with a well balanced finish. Paired with blue cheese lamb burgers, the blue cheese is more intense, and the sweetness is smoothed out. Had in the bottle.
