Maakun (1479) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle. Slight hazy dark Amber with medium off white head. Slight gusher. Cognac, apfelkorn, very fruity and some cinnamon, ripe pears, wine gums. Very sweet with big alcoholic finish. Full bodied and full carbonation. Nice stuff, but too much alcohol presence for me, and what's with all the gushing Struise beers recently?

Plenty of aromas, looks good, mouthfeel is good. Unfortunately it is too sweet which makes it unbalanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Renobob (1167) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 24, 2014
Bue en bouteille. Couleur foncée, quasiment pas de bulles. On sent l’alcool et le sucre principalement dans cette bière très puissante et qui remplit la bouche. Grosse longueur.

Gary (1633) - Brentford ,London , Texas, Somerset, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Bottled. Not even the 12% glory could get me excited ,man not much complexity here. Caramel rich maybe a bit of dark raisins ...it’s boring .

ruigo (1512) - PORTUGAL - DEC 23, 2014
33cl bottle. Dark reddish brown colour with a generous white head. Prunes, ripe fruit, berries and light alcohol in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is sweet, fruity, with a more bitter and dry finish. Overall, a good complex beer.

TET (2063) - FINLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Vintage 2013, bbe 30.05.2019. A dark brown beer with a quite big and light brown head. The nose has strong strawberries and sweetness of berries, some dark fruits and plums. The great and fresh aroma. Taste has strawberries and dark fruits, more plums than in the aroma, some herbs and spices. Almost full bodied, not heavy, smooth carbonation. Excellent beer, strong strawberries gives the nice freshness. This isn’t very complex but that’s not bothering as the all needed pieces are there. Smooth, balanced and enojoyable.

MrHangover (3139) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle, 2013 vintage. Pours a murky brownish beer with a nice amount of tanned head on top. Aroma is very fruity, apples, pear, caramel, malts, booze. Flavor is very sweet, again loads of fruits detected alongside sweet sugary presences. Alcohol is detectable in the mouthfeel, giving a slight burning sensation in the back. Carbonation level is low, aftertaste is long and sweet. I love a good quad, and this is one. Good stuff!

AdiBeer (1986) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Aroma: sweet, ripe fruits, red berries, prunes, some alcohol. Appearance: slightly hazy, reddish, small, white head. Taste: medium to heavy sweet. Palate: sweets expand, yet are not overly complex, caramel, sugar, alcohol again, getting just a touch dry in the finish. Overall: nice Quadrupel, yet does not quite make it to the top league, lacks complexity. Bottle from Beers of Europe, Kings Lynn.
