Solid, sweetish quadrupel with a balancing hoppy kick. Not much in way of Belgian-style esters.

hazy (slightly reddish-)brown colour, half inc of dense yellowish-beige-ish off-white head; aroma of caramel, herbal notes, orange zest, some grapefruit and walnut biscuit; taste of syrupy sweetness, herbal notes, marmalade, grapefruit and hoppy bitterness...well, I’m not convinced that it is a quadrupel and not an American-style barley wine, but I’m definitely convinced that it is a good beer

Aroma: a lot of aroma. Spices, yeast, malts, toasted malt, caramel, very light hints of alcohol.
Appearance: very nice deep amber-caramel color, with a thick off-white creamy head made of tiny bubbles. Very good retention despite the high level of alcohol. Very clear. Carbonation still works in the glass. Nice Brussels’ lace.
Taste: medium sweetness, medium bitterness, no sourness. Well balanced.
Palate: medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. Nice mouthfeel. Very long dry, bitter, spicy and citric finish. The alcohol’s warming effect lasts a lot of time.
Overall: great appearance with nice color and head. Lots of aromas. Nice complex and well balanced flavors: malts, caramel, spices, hops, citrus, dark fruits. Great beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
0.33l bottle. Murky dark orange body, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toast, raisins, some roasted malts and lots of citruses. Taste of caramel, toast, orange zest, raisins and plum. Sweet and bitter at the same time. Quite heavy beer, bit I like it a lot. Although it’s more like an American barleywine than a quad for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Interesting try for a quad, but not really quad - HOPS TOO STRONK = too much bitterness. Otherwise nice dried fruit depth, raisins, fresh berry like kick, bit sticky maltiness, caramel.
Intense sweetness with moderate to intense bitterness. I kinda liked it, but didnt work well as a quad.
