jbeatty (1244) - New York, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Bottle, 2011 vintage, 11/26/2012. Pours deep, dark brown, dense stable beige head with cohesive curtains of lace. Aroma is tart green apple and berries, candied fruits, yeast, faint caramel and vinous character. Taste is moderately sweet dark caramel malts with mild tartness, toffee, slight roast, dry woody chocolate bitterness in the finish. Medium full body, tingling carbonation. Ok, decent brew.

2014-es verzió. A Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel karaktere még elevenen él bennem, legalábbis az ital kortyolgatása közben úgy éreztem, van némi viszonyítási alapom a korábbi emlékeim alapján. Az már az első percek során nyilvánvalóvá válik, hogy a hordóérlelés hatása nem múlik el nyomtalanul, a vörösboros karakter igen erőteljesen munkálkodik a főzetben. A mélybarna, gesztenye testre természetesen krémes, elefántcsont hab telepszik, medvecukros, mégis fanyar, "sour brown"-szerű illatai meglepő intenzitással bukkanak elő alóla. Egy valamirevaló borsznob semmi esetre sem menne el szó nélkül a tanninok játéka mellett, jómagam is csatlakoznék hozzájuk: a vörösboros, fekete bogyós gyümölcsös, szárított vadvirágos, csillagánizsos, telt és savas jegyek igen komplex ízélményt nyújtanak, a fás hangulatok érettséget kölcsönöznek a quadrupelnek, az érlelés nagyot mélyít a szerkezeten, ám furcsa módon valahogy ki is könnyíti azt. Súlytalannak persze botrány lenne nevezni a karaktert, mint ahogy nyilvánvaló módon egyáltalán nem is az, mindenesetre egy árnyalattal teltebb jelleget még éppen elviselne a tökéletesség benyomásához. Ez persze már csak kekeckedés, aminek legfeljebb egy ilyen kaliberű italnál lehet helye, a legtöbb főzde természetesen csak álmodhat az ilyen alkotásokról.

ciocanelu (1326) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 3, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Brown color with tan head. Aroma is really complex with caramel, dark fruits like cherries and red berries, a slight fermented not and also oak barrel. Taste starts with sweet fruits and brown sugar, gets slightly tart and fruity in the middle and finishes with some slightly bitter burnt sugar and wood notes. Medium to full bodied with smooth mouthfeel. Really good quad with complex taste and nice barrel characteristics.

vincentvega72 (383) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2016
Mooi donkerbruin bier met fijne mokkakleurige schuimkraag die goed aan het glas blijft plakken. Overweldigend aroma van whiskey, chocolade, caramel, toffee. Warme zachte smaak. Eik, cognac, toffee, chocolade. Een explosie van smaken in je mond. Heerlijke warmende afdronk, Irish coffee achtig. Hier zijn geen woorden voor. Subliem subliem subliem....

Draught at Delirium Monasterium. Chocolate coke flavor, a bit simple really but still fun and dangerously drinkable for the abv.
