Skinnyviking (7138) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle at home. High and long lasting creamy off-white head. Hazy dark amber body. Very sweet fruity aroma. Very sweet apple pear flavor in a nice mixture with the alcohol, little hops, low carbonation, long sweet finish.

Encore une merveille de derrière les fagots... Cette brasserie est littéralement insatiable (sans jeu de mots …). Une quadruple de 12 % abv, et 41 Ibu . Couleur roux clair, avec un tout léger voile de convenance. Bulles très peu nombreuses et d’ailleurs quasiment pas de gaz à l’ouverture. Mousse beige moyen qui vient napper finement, et on trouvera de longues jambes lors de la dégustation. Arômes de fruits mûrs, raisins secs, bois exotique, ceps de vigne, pointe de cannelle. 1ère bouche soyeuse, quasi huileuse, à la superbe entrée sur des pruneaux, du raisin noir et du blé noir. Arrière-bouche de malt et fruits mûrs. 2ème sur du miel brun, du malt caramel, du candi brun, sucre d’orge. 3ème sur du malt grillé, avec une pointe de tabac brun. Arrière-bouche très longue, à la texture huileuse. La longueur donne un grand fondu malt/fruits/bois. La chaleur se marque. Elle donne l’esprit d’un grand vin, avec des nuances sublimes. La levure est soyeuse, une très belle ligne. L’alcool est bien progressif, fort mais sans excès de chaleur. La finale est un pur régal. CONCLUSION : une bière qui mérite le respect, l’estime, l’appréciation sage. Comme dit le brasseur, elle est « alive and kickin’ »... Pour moi, cette quad est d’une grande noblesse, artistique et d’un esprit mystique...

Theydon_Bois (9110) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle, from Struise Shop Brugge, at JF’s BBQ 15/06/14. Lightly murky orange amber with a little flotsam and jetsam bobbing up and down (I forgave them) topped with a well appointed beige covering that stays to make friends. Nose is vanilla essence, oaky booze, caramelised sugars, dark fruit peel. Taste comprises dark fruit rinds, fruit cake mix in goo form, vanilla pangs, dates, figgy resonance, light spice, oaky woodness. Full bodied, fine carbonation, drinks well for the ABV which is well masked. Solid quad.

@ Havregatan. Bottle (330 ml) from Kihoskh, Copenhagen (46 DKK). Fruity and malty, yeasty and a bit spicy, sweet caramel with notes of banana and marzipan, medium to full body and an oily texture. The finish is dry, bitter, fruity, sweet and yeasty with some booze. Really nice on.

mcberko (6702) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
330mL bottle, pours a murky amber brown with a small beige head. Nose brings out notes of toffee, rye bread, some burnt caramel and brown sugar. Flavour brings out dates, figs, toffee and some caramel sweetness. Booze is extremely well-concealed. Complex, fruity and sweet but nowhere close to cloying. Excellent stuff.

Douberd (2339) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2014
At Zeebra II. Clear body, deep orange copper in colour. Maybe one finger of off-white head, with average retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Malty aroma with peaches and some dark fruits, prunes-like. Taste is sweet with peaches, a bit of yeast, prunes, malts, alcohol notable. Medium body, carbonation on the high side. Overall okay, maybe a bit too boozy.

Solid quadrupel. Sweet, malty and with some fruits and herbs. Struise can do better though.
