Cloudy brownish tan, tan head. Raisins, dark mellow fruit, light spice. Lightly bitter, sweeter. Heavier body, some decent alcoholic bite. Longer finish, chewy, some oiliness. Good.

ordybill (936) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - OCT 21, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a reddish brown with small tan head. The aroma is full of fruit, spices and cocoa. The flavor is the real triumph here, a sweet fruit blend that hides the high ABV. Overall, a world class beer Unibroue has done it again.

HuskerTan (1270) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle. A- Brown sugar, dark fruits, grapes, slightly boozy. A- Dark mahogany color, dark liquid, tan head. T- Brown sugar, grapes, raisins, candied fruits, alcohol. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, dry finish. O- This was indeed more of a wine feel than what I am used to in a Quad. Felt a little odd on the mouth feel and not the complexity it should have. A little let down here.

AlfredoGarcia (222) - Santiago, CHILE - OCT 8, 2015
341 ml bottle. Bought in La mise en Biere in Lausanne. Fantastic dark fruit smell, but not in the trappist kind of way, a little more sweet than that, also you can feel pepper, dark chocolate. Good looking dark color with a white head, nice fermentation. Taste is outstanding, fantastic! Just fills your mouth and doesn’t let anything out, fantasticly balanced. Give me this beer for the rest of my life and i’ll archive nirvana. One of the best I have ever tried, great job, Unibroue!

TorbenJensen (1408) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2015
The scent is most marked by fruit, but also a little caramel malt can be traced. Furthermore, it smells a bit spicy. The taste is quite something. The dominating from the start with a powerful sweetness full caramel malt, which slowly turns into a very complex fruity taste where I can feel slightly tart apple, sweet plum and maybe peach. The finish contains a nice spicy finish of coriander and chocolate and everything is incredibly well in harmony together.

jjsint (1803) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2015
Bottle from Drinks of the World, Geneva. Pours mid to dark brown. Intense candy sugar and yeast aroma. Sweet taste with a naked alcohol burn: tastes as strong as it is! Nicely carbonated body. This is an intense beer and while it isn’t quite as balanced as many of the classic Trappist quads, it’s still a fairly special beer.

emusche (125) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Pours deep ruby; almost black. Nice, frothy off-white head. Aroma is plum, bittersweet chocolate, slightly peppery, maybe molasses. Taste is white pepper, plum, raisin, some notes of chocolate and just a little booze. Tastes almost like a dark saison, very similar to Three-Eyed Raven. Overall very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A Unibroue quad through and through, with a nice fruitiness and a hint of nuttiness but that overlively carbonation.
