Excellent special edition of the regular quadrupel. Sweet smell, initial taste of a fine wine followed by the tastes of the regular quadrupel. Excellent brew and one of the best i had so far.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose has a lot of oak coming through with some notes of caramel and candied sugar and just a bit of the Belgian yeast. Taste is slightly sweet and woody, and drinks super smooth. Really a beer you should sip and enjoy.

Bella scoperta!! Bottiglia del 2013. Aroma dato dalla fermentazione in botte di rovere molto gradevole. Al palato appare molto dolce (vaniglia, frutti rossi, caramello e zucchero). Bel equilibrio. Ottima

The taste tells you one thing: this beer is deep and extremely multilayered. What it does not tell you, is the intensity. This beer can honestly be called the best beer buy I ever made (and that’s at 16? for a 75cl bottle).

Cellared for three years. Was remarkable in its smoothness and in the stewed fruit qualities therein.
