Moolesen (423) - NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Brown with a beige head. Aroma is banana and sweet dried fruit and parfume. Taste is funny: It reminds me when I as a child entered the sweets store and could select all wine gums in the world. This in combination with vanilla from some barrel aging makes this beer special. It is my beer? No. It’s more special than nice (my opinion)

This one is a lng way from the ongelovige thomas. Muchmore sweetnes, oak and vanilla and much less of the roasted malts. Kenau is clearly present. To me more like a belgian quad than an american. Super! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zlotta (1327) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’, bottled in June 2015. Clear, dark red with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity aroma of caramel, some molasses, raisins, prunes, figs and some port. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity taste of caramel, molasses, raisins, prunes, brown sugar and some port, followed by a long, warming, boozy, moderately bitter finish. Medium to full body, oily mouthfeel, average carbonation. Decent beer, but not very complex and at the same time too bozy.

Bobson (67) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle @ home shared with Thompson. Looks very dark and somewhat opaque with very little to no head. Smells quite fruity but not too sweet, some hints of yeast as well. You can also smell alcohol coming from it. Taste gives fruit mixed with some oak, also a slight hint of burned sugar in there. Overall, quite a unique beer that isn?t comparable to anything else I?ve tasted before.

TtV (370) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Dark brown with an off white head. Aroma of burnt sugar, malts. The taste is very sweet for a Jopen beer. At first it’s rather flat but the aftertaste develops into a bouquet of sweetness, Jopen hops and a warm glow of alcohol.

Nische (1700) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle from trade with Douberd, many thanks! Pours dark, reddish brown with beige head. A little boozy aroma with vanilla, oak and dates. Also slightly boozy taste with caramel, oak, vanilla, dates and arrack. Full bodied and yummy, with a long syrupy finish. Bit heavy though.

tricksta_p (3007) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is lots of oak, vanilla, malts, raisins, caramel, hint of coconut, toffee, dried fruity notes, some alcohol. Flavour is sweet, a bit sticky. Finish is dry, body is above medium. Certainly a fine Quad with a big oaky vanilla aroma, I expected a bit more from the US hops.
