Very, very dark brown with ruby glitters color. No head nor lace. Excellent aromas to prunes, raisins, brown sugar, red fruits, nuts, Porto wine...and more, pretty complex but perfectly structured. The mouthfeel is quite solid, to sweet wine, dried prunes, liquorice, rhum, cane sugar and raisins. Medium carbonated, full bodied but not heavy, impressive palate. The overall is impeccable, almost perfect. As usual in De Struise beers, a huge, superb beer.

da questo momento in poi (cambio gettoni allo zbf 2013) comincia un vero e proprio delirio/declino..il birrificio struise diventa il mio principale punto di riferimento..e come potrebbe non esserlo??da quello che ricordo posso solo dire che su 4/5 birre assaggiate ognuna era un vero e proprio capolavoro..nel vero senso della parola..aromi impressionanti,complessi all’ennesima potenza..ogni sorso era un tripudio di sapori quasi impossibili da decifrare completamente ma che sicuramente meritano un altro assaggio..per la maggior parte ho assggiato birre scure,come questa..micidiale e il tutto servito alla spina insieme al GATTO LOPEZ :D zbf 2013

Bottle at Farmers Cabinet. 2011 vintage. Very nice chewy chocolate caramel raisins. Dark pour with a nice foamy head. Rich, full and succulent. Sweet dark fruits. Rotted sugared fruit. Much better than I anticipated it would be. Fantastic!

The label appears to be a simple printing from an inkjet printer. But do not be tempted by the outside. Once in the glass, this Quadruple is a full and adult beer. Ripe fruit and a creamy fluidity. Good and tasty.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a dark reddish brown with a small tan head and an aroma of ripe fruits, maybe vherries and prunes, raisins, toffee and some earth. The taste is sweet, but not too sweet considering the style and the alcohol is just a bit noticable. Good malty taste, with a creamy mouthfeel and lots of different notes including some vanilla and caramel. A really nice quadruple!
