Amber color, no lacing and flat- which from the other ratings looks to be a regular occurrence, so not a bad bottle. Aroma and flavor had okay sweet candy malts and some light vinous notes. Pretty expensive bottle for less than mediocre beer- bummer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
#15 in calendar. Pours cloudy amber. Thick head, good lacing. Lots of carbonation. Smells of yeast, dark fruit, caramel. Taste is subtle dried fruit, caramel that transitions into sweet, nutmeg, fruit and toffee. Some hop mixed in. Not a fan of the style but this was an ok Belgian style beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured out a deep mahogany red with just enough silty sediment and a thick thick head. I’ve let it sit for quite a time and it smells pretty good and included some lemon. Nutmeg, faint mint, sweet plum, burnt brown sugar. Aroma fades. The taste is tasty taste stuff but lacks the classic style a bit. Slight sour tangy zip blended in with a sharp bitter spice that coats the mouth well. Light citrus, thoughts of powder fade, plum and sugar, having a problem picking up things at this point but it’s tasted well though out. Crushed it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Deep amber, some copper hues, moderate to large foamy sandy head, nice lacing.   Sweet raisin and figs up front, bready, biscuity, some basement funk.   Similar on the tongue, a little syrupy, sweet, brown sugar and molasses in addition to what I noticed on the tongue.   Almost to the point of being too sweet.   Sweet without being too heavy is what saves it.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes bready, some fig/dates/raisins, with brown sugar and molasses.   Better tha most, solid but could be a bit heavier.   Still good tho.

Bottle to tulip
Aroma of prune, grape, plum, caramel, yeast, some lactose. Cloudy amber with a creamy tan head. Lots of caramel, hops, lemon, alcohol, plum, and prune. This is quite sweet and quite hoppy.

The design on this is outstanding. BeerAdvent 2013 Day 15... quick, I need an excuse for saving the strongest for last other than meekness. Copper, off-white head. Nose of sweet sweet malt, alcohol tinged nasal spice. Flavour is toffee and phenol, nice balance, not complex at all but a nice drink, reminds me of Gulden Draak 9000.

330ml Flasche. Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes dunkel rötlich-braunes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch alkoholisch, würzig, überreife dunkle Früchte. Geschmack sehr malzig süß, getrocknete dunkle Beeren, nussig. Den Alkohol spürt man deutlich.

Bottle from Bierkompass.de in March 2013.
Hazy brownish/amber with a medium head. Aroma and taste of malt, dried fruit, yeast and some light spices. Rather sweet with a medium body. An ok beer.

Pours is cloudy amber with a small to medium tan head. Aroma is a nice balance between malt,caramel and hops. The hoppyest beer in the abt/quadruple style I have had. Very good beer that I could drink year round must try for hop lovers.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Advent calendar. Coriander and spice on the nose, very sweet on the tongue - super sweet. Something not right with this one - unbalanced and rough, not smooth like a quadruple should be. Fit for the pit.
