migwell (277) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 1, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2016 Bottle into a balloon glass. Very dark brown brew, opaque and smelling of dark sugar and yeast. Highly carbonated and at 9%, barely a hint of alcohol noted. Medium bodied, yeasty with a mild flavor of dark fruit, lots of maltiness, this is a pleasant, but somewhat understated brew. I let the bottle sit at room temperature for an hour or so to bring up more flavor, and certainly the warmer it gets, the more complex it is. The spiciness comes out, as does the alcohol, fruits and malt after another hour or so of sitting. As the website suggests, a temperature near 60f maximizes the taste profile, and my appreciation. Let’s settle for ’subtle’ flavors when chilled. The Unibrow website offers a lot of information about this brew, but nothing on the hops used. At 15 IBU, obviously they were an afterthought. A fine brew hidden for a while by excessive refrigeration and effervescence.

adster (678) - HUNGARY - FEB 27, 2016
Mostanra már világossá vált, hogy a kanadai főzetek, különösen az Unibroue sörei a kifinomult elegancia képviselői, harsány és közönséges, robbanásszerűen ható karakterre felesleges is számítani az esetükben, különösen, ha a quadrupelek egy mintapéldányáról beszélünk. Bár azt, hogy a kategória jelenlegi 6. legjobb söreként tekintsünk rá talán túlzásnak érzem, összességében mégis egy kifogástalan belga hangulatú főzet tárul elénk a felnyitását követő percekben. Vörösesbarna színe puha és krémes habbal osztozik, illatai teltek, édeses malátásak, élesztősen sokszínűek. A kortyok gömbölyűek, simák és tartalmasak, gabonás alapoktól vezéreltek. Az ízvilág homogén jegyek halmaza, kiugrásoktól mentes, melyben minden egyes elem a helyén van - egyenes nyomvonalú, szigorú hangulatú szerkezet ad otthont a mérnöki módon megszerkesztett komponenseknek. Kenyérhéjas, kelt tésztás keretbe burkolva sejlenek fel a száraznak ható, visszafogott intenzitással bíró aszalványos, mazsolás színezetű elemek, majd állnak össze egy krémes állagú, bársonyos jellegű, simulékony és jól ismert mondanivalót hordozó karakterré a mérsékelt vérmérsékletű ízjegyek.

TET (2632) - Kaarina, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2016
A very dark brown beer, a head is big, clouding and beige. Aroma has riped fruits, raisins, prunes, flowers and some lime. Aromatic flowerness is refreshning the aroma. Taste has riped fruits, prunes, flowers and some lime. Medium bodied, strong carbonation, but softly. Strong flavours are fresh and there are not any heavy nuancess. Also great aromatic notes. The great beer. Slightly similar than the other great beer, Abbaye des Rocs Triple Impériale.

Callou (2) - Louisiana, USA - FEB 19, 2016 does not count
Taste a bit of spice. Coriander? Possibility? It has a bit of fruit as well. Of Course it is a full bodied beer. It is a beer to enjoy with friends who like to live.

hauxe (411) - Butzbach, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2016
Rated from old notes. Very dark, sweet, with plenty of (yeast?) floating in a cloudy brown-red beer. Smells like orange pop, but the taste is spicy and complex. Very warming. Excellent.

Maris (1382) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2016
From a 355ml bottle on 1/2/2016. Pours a deep mahogany with a medium head. The nose features chocolate, dark fruit and a bit of spice. Taste wise, it’s bold and complex, beginning with chocolate and caramel malt, followed by plums, dates and peach, with some mild spiciness at the back. The palate is quite creamy and the carbonation light and a little fizzy. A really cohesive, approachable and enjoyable dessert beer. Definitely amongst the best quads I’ve had.

canadiankiwi (146) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 27, 2016
Highly carbonated which I feel doesn’t suit the taste of the beer. Pours a rich coffee like dark brown. Strong spiced aroma and Taste. Fresh spice hits with a bit of nutmeg.
