Mi aspettavo di più da questa quadrupel di toccalmatto, l’idea che mi lascia è di un corpo un po’ troppo leggero. Intendiamoci, buona è buona...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL at the brewery thanks to Bruno! Picture coming soon! The pour is a clear, deep ruby with a thick, rocky, poofy cafe head. Nice retention and lace. Would like superb in a tulip. The aroma is floral, citrus peel, coffee, dark cherries. Taste is lightly tart, lemon, spice, meaty, full of chocolate and soft wood, dried fruits. Palate is rich, much more oily than I was expecting. Very clean. No Christmas spice nonsense. Really tastes like a very well done Abbey Quadrupel, especially at 9%. Very nice.
