Bottle 1,5L kindly shared by VDuquerroux thanks. An amber beer with medium brown head. Nose is on caramel, spices, even a sour basis. Aroma is on caramel, candy sugar, dark malt, spices, touch of oxydation, very spicy, kind of Noel strong. Quite sweet body, finish on cinnamon and caramel, with sourish background.

alteregoo (1451) - Kalisz, POLAND - NOV 13, 2016
Piana obfita, sycząca, szybko opada do chmurki. Barwa rubinowo miedziana, opalizująca. W aromacie suszone i kandyzowane owoce, miód spadziowy, karmel, stary chmiel. W smaku dość słodko z odrobiną owocowej kwaskowatości, dominują kandyzowane morele, rodzynki, figi, miód i karmel. Piwo zdaje się być lekkie, z pięknie ukrytym alkoholem i treściwe, bogate jednocześnie. Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego, poszczypujące, nieduża ziołowa goryczka.
Pięknie się to pije, w profilu to taki odrobinę rzadszy, dobry Quadrupel. Klasa!

Blackberry backlog, Pours a copper color with a large off white, almost beige head. Nose is huge on raisin, fig, and other dark fruits. Flavor is similar with some plum, raisin bread, sweet malt, honey, and molasses. Rich and decadent belgian strong. Medium to fuller in the mouthfeel. Nice

Turboninja (763) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2016
[email protected] Highly balanced and organic with sweet, slightly bitter raisin and dryed fruits. Some maghony and a hint of cognac. Medium/light body. Overall, too light palate, great taste though bit light.

Maakun (5600) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2016
Bottle at home. Clear dark mahogany with a bit fizzy dark beige head that looks like a cola head at first, but leaves a nice film. Looks very good. Massive brown sugar, toffee, raisins, light milk chocolate, dates, dried peach, some cognac. Very decandent aroma. Taste is over medium sweet and with some alcoholic bitterness. Almost full bodied with a slick feel and a bit low carbonation. Slightly let down by the palate. Still a really good beer, Rochefort it’s not, but it’s damn tasty.

bonev (780) - POLAND - OCT 13, 2016
Piwo lekko metne w kolorze ciemny brazowy z minimalna 0iana wokol szkla. W aromacie slodowo, suszone owoce i belgijskie drozdze. W smaku dosc wytrawne z wysyceniem i goryczka na niskim poziomie. Jest troche czekolady, orzechy i przyprawy od drozdzy. Cialo polpelne z odrobina alkoholu rozgrzewajacego gardlo.

reebtogi (6277) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2016
750ml capped bottle pours an amber brown color with a finger and a half of light beige head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and dark fruits with hints of chocolate and toasted almonds. Taste is a light fruit tartness with a caramel and chocolate malty sweetness with a spicy hop bitterness with some almonds in the mix. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a nice brew that suits the style well, with a good balance of flavours and body. Recommended.
