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.

Grote fles in mooi kistje. Zeer donkerbruin met crèmekleurige kraag. Geur als rode wijn, beetje zuur. Smaak quadrupel met hout en vanille en rode wijn. Erg lekker!

italianjohn (2684) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Deep plum pour with a soft and creamy beige head and light lacing .... Aroma of dark fruits, chocolate malts, light red wine, dry oak and lightly sour .... Taste is of dark fruits (plums, figs), chocolate, dry oak, light red wine and sourness .... A bit lively and a little bitter on the back end .... Mouthfeel is soft and creamy with a light bitterness lingering ... finish is sour with a bitter and very dry oak bite .... Definitely a nice solid complex quad

jamaty (1614) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 29, 2015
Marrón oscura, de abundant espuma. Rico aroma, complejo, con mucho de licor, caramelo, vainilla...Cuerpo potente, muy sabrosa en cada trago, dulce sin exagerar, licorica sin exagerar. Ligeros toques frutales (fruta roja) sobre rica base acaramelada, notas de vainilla... toque de levadura belga... un disfrute cada sorbo. Magnífica en la sobremesa.
