3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Small light brown to tan foamy head on top of a deep dark brown colored beer.
Smell spices, dark fruits, yeast, toasted malts, nuts, hint of liquorice.
Taste is a very nice mix of liquorice, spices, cooky dough, herbs, toasted malts, dark fruits, raisin.
Turns a bit fast to a grassy aftertaste.
Aftertaste is warmth (alcohol) mixed with grass and light bittersweet.
Medium carbo, medium body and soft tingly mouthfeel.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a creamy light beige head. Aroma is of candied nuts, caramel and molasses, a bit of a light fruitiness and a touch of a funky character. Flavor starts with a strong sweet character, lots of dark overripe fruits, a strong nuttiness, some candy notes, caramel, some toastiness, a bit funky again, with a soft lightly boozy finish. Medium to full body and a soft carbonation. Good quad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Deep caramel, moderate foamy head, light beige in color, fairly nice lacing.   Musty nose, a little basement dankness, some blanket and caramel/toffee aspects.   Subtle notes of chocolate covered cherries.   Very musty on the tongue, and rather barnish.   Not a heavy Quad, moreso musty, basement like funk, and minor caramel and chocolate covered cherries.   Seems pretty simple, not as heavy or sweet as others.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Lingering mustiness, severe basement, and dank maltiness.   Classic Belgium aroma and flavor, but unfortunately not for an outstanding Quad.   Good, but my hopes were up a bit higher.   Big thanks to Adam3000 for this freebie!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown color with a medium beige head. Aroma is complex and vinous: dark fruits, toasted notes, molasses, caramel notes. alcohol. Taste is similar, very sweet and with a big alcoholic warmth. Again dark fruits and caramel candy flavors. Very carbonated beer and good bodied. Overall, complex and intersting but way too overwhelmnig, it tasted like a red wine more than a beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2011 Details: 33cl bottle, vintage 2010, about almost 1,5 years old.
Tasting notes: Dark brown/black color with a darkred shine when hold against the light, two finger thight beige bubble head. The aroma is appetizing and sweet, hints of candy sugar, ripe fruits, burned caramel, vanilla. The flavor starts with sweet caramel, fruits, slight vanilla, a dry subtle hop finish and a slight alcohol note. Very soft and sticky palate, full body. Both the aroma and flavor have something special that distincts them from previous Quadrupels I have had.
Conclusion: A soft, smooth yet quite complex Quadrupel.
