4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
33 cl. bottle. Rated 10.9.2012 - Best by 1.1.2015.
Pours brownish amber red w/ smallish, tan head.
Pitch perfect quad. Westvleteren 12 pitch perfect. Fruity (figs, dates), powerful, dry, bracingly hoppy, superbly balanced, easily drinkable.†Very, very Westvleteren-ish.
Could use a tad more carbonation, otherwise perfect in every way.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Advent day 14. Makes it hard to sneak ahead with 10% beers. Dark amber is still light for style. Fluffy head. Yeasty, wheat and alcohol aroma. Flavour comes in waves. Malt, alcohol and vinegar. Not up to Monk standards.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Heavy caramel and milk chocolate for the malt, moderate cooked orange for the hops, dough for the yeast, with date, brown sugar and a hint of baking spices. Head is small, frothy, off-white with a spot or two of lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, a but syrupy and a lively carbonation. Nice smooth, easy drinking Quadrupel with the perfect amount of sweetness.

Amber pour with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and sugar. The flavor has some toffee, grass and sugar notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
P: Pours a murky amber tinted tea appearance. A quick vanishing taupe head that dwindles to a bubbly wake.
S: Candy malt, syrupy dark fruits, cardboard, faint dirty pine needles, cinnamon sticks, anise, hints of ginger, cardamom, rose water and sweet dark bread. A slight tartness.
T/M: Juicy dark fruit, rock candy, cigar smoke, apple peels, cranberries, bready, estery, slightly tart, floral spice and gulam jamun. Gently carbonated chewy body that finishes with a slow building dryness. Spiced rum once warmed.
O: This was on point. A complex assortment blended into a brilliant concoction. The spice profile mixed with slight tartness really sets this off. I tried to take my time but it didnít turn out as I planned. Extremely easy drinking for the ABV and as dangerous as a hollow point. Cheers!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brownish orange body with floaties! Sour nose... Odd, somewhat of a malted gueuze. Nice mix of sweet and sour, much better than the aroma.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Quite pungent; really can smell this one a few feet away. Classic fruity esters for a quad- fig, plum, dark cherry but also has some spicy pumpernickel and rich caramel. Hits all the notes a quad should. Appearance: A little lighter than other quads; Iíd describe the color as a hazy dark copper. The head is a bit disappointing; initially pours to about a inch thick (bone coloured), but settled down significantly within a few moments. Flavor: Caramel forward and certainly sweet; fruits are a bit muted but present (as is the pumpernickel); the sweetness backs off a bit but comes back for more toward the finish. Does not dry out as well as the best quads. Palate: Full body, thick texture, flat carbonation, long finish. Overall: In need of some refinement, but the bones are there.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Supremely cloudy, with lots of sediment floating inside it, like water out of the hose. FInger of puffy head. Either glowing orange or rose-red depending on the light.
The Belgian funk in the nose; severely sweet, sour, tart and flowery. The sweet maltiness of spent grains. Cherries, apple skins, a touch of plum. The tartness really kicks in as it decants.
A malty flavor, sweet candi sugars. There is some brett funk, but itís not cloying or overwhelming. Just a hint of musty basement blanket. Mint jelly. Grainy and sweet and excellent.
The feel is a little mineral-like on the tongue. Thick, somewhat buttery on the outside, but also coarse. This beer is *absolutely* my style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear reddish dark copper pour with a thin, soapy off white head. Aroma is caramel, tart wheat, under ripe dark fruit and a light funky tartness. Flavor is caramel, tons of raw yeast, light medicinal note, bread, sharp fruity esters and some sweet cereal malts. Medium to heavy body, with a light, but sharp and very blanketing carbonation. Decent I suppose, but one of the poorer attempts at a Quad that I have tried. It got better as it went, the first pour was like drinking the sediment from the bottom of the fermenter where a quad was aged.
