mike_77 (4935) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2016
Murky brown with no head. Aromas of bready and vinous fruit. Flavour is sweet with dried fruits. Light dryness in the finish balances the sweetness a little.

fkoolen (832) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2016
UPDATED: APR 17, 2016 Bottle at home. Very dark brown/red, no head. Rich nose with dried fruits like raisins and figs, porto notes, spices: taste is quite sweet and dried fruity, porto too, marzipan, some cinnamon, clove, distant oaky and vanilla, alcohol is present but well balanced. Lingering sweet finish. Big body, thick and sticky, soft mouthfeel, no-low carbonation. Very pleasant, maybe just a bit too sweet to be an absolute banger.

psilosophy (641) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - DEC 22, 2015
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur cola, aucune mousse à signaler, même en versant rapidement. Une bière assez vineuse, il y a quelque chose de l’ ordre du vin de noix, avec l’ addition de réglisse. C ’est sucré et caramélisé à souhait. Très faible carbonnation, palais collant. Trouvée à la brasserie Delneste - Froidmont.

Yves (2778) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2015
Alone at home. Brown colored beer with medium brownish head lots of carbonation. Malty alcoholic aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is rather sweet ending bitter spicy alcoholic.

Calisky (2384) - ALSACE, FRANCE - DEC 1, 2015
Couleur noire, mousse qui disparait. Nez de chêne, alcool, fruits noirs et caramel. Gout fruits noirs vieux, alcool, caramel un peu cuit, note de fut de chêne. Pas trop complexe mais intense et onctueuse. Vraiment nicke comme quadrupel!

FatPhil (12797) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 30, 2015
330ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut!
Super sweet aroma, whilst others say "grapes", I’m getting almonds. Later marzipan, as it’s a sweeter less clear almondiness. Remarkably light palate considering how sweet it is. Taste is sticky sweet caramelly malts, a bit mashy. Oh, and a huge waft of alcohol too. Later, raisins come through more, both in the the taste and the finish. Leaves my lips sticky. Can’t get into this really, but it’s not bad.

suurjuust (2661) - ESTONIA - OCT 30, 2015
Dark brown beer, small off-white head. Nose is fruity, malt, dried fruit, sweetness, caramel notes, grape juice. Flavor is caramel, sweetness, malt, dried fruit, marzipan. Fruity finish with malt notes and loads of caramel, slightly dry. Grape juice in the aftertaste with booze. Sticky. Dangerously drinkable, a lovely mountain of sweetness.
