Lore (2168) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 25, 2016
dark brown colour with ruby notes, medium sized creamy beige head; aroma of whisky barrel, molasses, vanilla, dried plum, some raisins, dried sour cherry, butterscotch, and some biscuits as well as hints of apple and brett; taste of dried plum and sour cherry, whisky notes, oak barrel, vanilla, syrupy notes, moderate roastedness, maybe some anise and biscuits; spicy alcoholic aftertaste; amazing quadrupel - would be perfect with a bit more ’body’, or a bit less alcohol - I feel a minimal imbalance of body and alcohol...

ZodiacM (839) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2016
Editie 2014, bottle #07501. Robijnrood bier met mooie schuimkraag. Aroma bestaat vooral uit rode wijn, hout en een licht zuurtje en zoetje. Dit komt ook terug in de smaak. Deze is heel zacht, met een prettige rode wijn/hout afdronk en weer dat lichte zuurtje en zoetje. Prachtig bier!

SeniorZozo (1265) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 1, 2016
Bottle Version 2013 @ Budapest // SHH has very strong aroma with some wooden notes. Color is very dark brown and it looks cloudy. Comparing with Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel, less bitter, medium body and much more delicious.

Bottle, 75cL. @Naintré, with my family for my mom birthday. Bought during Bruges Beer Festival. A dark brown opaque beer with mahogany hues ; medium white foamy head with a good retention. Roast, wood, whisky, brett, sugar, light vinegar. Medium to heavy sweet, round, warming ; light dry bitter ; fresh pleasant wind. Full body, average smooth texture, average carbonation, sweet woody lasting finish, light warming background. Overall, a delicious strong woody brown flemish ; solid.
