Eodt øl som bare blir bedre og bedre for hver munnfull. En god smak og lukt opplevelse. Bør prøves. Bassikpoet (93) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Pours a deep purple brown with a small head that settles into thick lace. Aroma of sultanas is the first thing you smell, but given a second more discerning sniff and you get figs, vanilla, caramel, and herbal yeast. Tate is a little underwhelming although the sweetness of the Belgian malts and sultanas is nice. There’s a clingy bitterness that doesn’t seem at home in this brew. There is definitely a full-body to the beer but it needs a less astringent finish. Ratman197 (14822) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2013

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff feb-12: Mørk oransje med lysebrunt skum. Eksotisk aroma og smak fra en eksotisk del av verden. Stor smaksrikdom og varmende virkning. Synd at min rikdom ikke tilsier en tur til NZ! MaBeer1972 (2051) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Bottle from Muckey’s. Pours out a very dark purple. Off white head that settles to a thick lace. Aroma is dark and sweet like prune juice. Flavor is rich. Thick and chewy. Unfortunately, a little too much candi sugar for me. Could be better balanced.

Deep ruby pour, with a small beige head. Sweet smell of candysugar and malts. The taste is also sweet indeed, with a funky aftertaste. Alcohol very well hidden. Superb. AndreasJaeger (505) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2013

Deep red - brown beer, very hazy. Good sized pale tan head. Softish palate, dry. Fine carbonation. Sweet and slightly spicy. Nice rich fruit cake in the undertone. Lactose sweetness. A little tart fruit as well. Dry finish. Tasty quad if a bit dry.
Bottle. Opaque and very dark brown. The head is thin but decently muscular. The aroma is like raisin wine. This drinks with a rich dark fruit body -- prune, raisin, plum. Delish. (#3947, 1/25/2013) pmuzz (400) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2013
A big thank you to Bernard! Very hard to find, but thankfully the Wheatsheaf had a few left! The bottles had some age on their side which meant the beer was just lovely an juicy with full body and balance. It is not your typical quad but its is delightful and an unusual take on the theme. The taste was gorgeous and the ETOH was well hidden. Really pleased to finally get to try this great beer.
