COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The new masterpiece from the Val-Dieu brewery. A very complex and full-bodied beer with a long aftertaste. The brewmaster advices to cellar the beer for a year for it to unfold its full potential.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Smells and tastes less like Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony than the last beer I tasted, but like these sons of Cleveland it creeps up on you: The high alcohol percentage is almost inperceptible behind all the many exciting nuances in the taste and smell. Contains soy, fish sauce, petrol, licorice and several different spices; but is most of all an intense and authoritarian expression which tells me exactly what it wants. Obviously, I too want it.

Sample at SBWF 2014. Malty smell with ripe fruit. Sweet malty taste with ripe fruit. Very nice, will probably age well.

Tasty dark beer with a good creamy head. Complex and with plenty of body. Boozy, malty and somewhat earthy aroma. This is really tasty brew, albeit not quite in the top echelon of beers.

Poured from bottle to glass. Dark brown hue with off white head. Aroma is figs, spices, caramel, raisins, Belgian esters. Mouthfeel is decent with a medium light body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a spicy following. Overall this is a decent brew.

adasko (411) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Has a sweet malty aroma which is very pleasant. It’s dark with ruby reflections, non-transparent and clear. Has a nice head and quite good lacing. In taste it’s sweet with caramel notes. Man can taste a dark malts. It’s very alcoholic. The beer warms you up very quickly and sear the mouth.

tricyclist (792) - Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2014
I’m not a huge Belgian guy but this is pretty drinkable. It’s a fairly dark pour with a nice fruity caramel nose and a mild toffee/brown sugar finish with some clove and Belgian spice notes. Flavor is smooth caramel and fig/ raspberry... Definitely drinkable with alcohol being decently hidden in my opinion

On tap @moederlambik . Color is brown and the head is beige. Aroma of sweet Belgian candy-esters. Lots of sweet dark fruits, mellow caramel, "flagermuse" (Danish candy), hazelnuts and sweet plums. Classic quad aroma. Taste of sweet Belgian esters, a bit spices, dark ripe fruits, a little heat from the alcohol, weak wood and some chocolate notes. Classic Belgian quad.
