the pour is dark copper with ample tan head. The nose is dark fruits, candy sugar, and malt. The flavor is typically sweet as with most quads, has a nice alcohol warming finish with a nice nutty flavor. Good beer.

Pours deep amber into a Trappist glass. Off-white head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Dried pit fruit and alcohol aromas. Upfront sweet syrupy caramel which transforms to a lasting, but dry, pepper finish.

Flaske. Sød, alt for sød på en en dimensionel og kedelig måde. Det er åbenbart Koningshovens varemærke at tage en belgisk øl og gøre den for sød. Ærgeligt men ikke meget andet at sige.

Sweet, nutty, warming. Too sweet, probably, but it has a nice full body.
Vinous, fine for a rainy evening.

750ml bottle-pours a foamy retaining off white head and cloudy amber color. Aroma is caramelized sweet grain, secondary spiciness, yeast-banana, pineapple. Taste is caramelized sweet grain-a bit syrupy, spices come through on taste much more than smell, yeast-banana/pineapple, some oak/woodiness, alcohol. Nice, good carbonation. Sipping. Thanks jwc215 for sharing.
