hazy brown colour with slight ruby notes, minimal off-white head - more like lacing than a real head; aroma of intensive red wine and oak barrel notes, overripe black sour cherry and dried plum soaked in cognac, and some alcohol; taste of intensive dry red wine, tannins, dried plum and cherry soaked in alcohol, burnt sugar, syrupy sweetness,maybe some herbal notes, too, a bit exaggerated alcohol and some brett-like sourness; good quadrupel, but not among the best ones I’ve tried nutjes (872) - Heestert-Zwevegem, BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2016

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2017 Drank during Beer & Boots 18-9-2016. Some alcohol bitterness, but mainly a very rich candy-like taste. Good.
Edit: drank again with Kaspar at his place in Molenhoek 02-06-17. Very rich beer, very soft, but a bit sweet. BlazerT (1089) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - SEP 5, 2016
Bottle. Teku. Deep brown/reddish with small, semi-densed, light brown head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma is very winey, slightly oaky with decent, noticeable malty notes - dark and burnt sugar, some caramel, raisins, woody. Taste is semi-sweet, which lasts till the end of degustation, ABV is very well hidden. Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, finish is pure, woody. In general drinkable, taste like old good wine, very interesting and not so packed with malts, nicely balanced.

Muddy brown color with just a bit of beige foam. Aroma has brown sugar, caramel, dried dark fruits and some oak. Taste starts with sweet malt, dark fruits, caramel, booze and finishes slightly bitter with some dark chocolate and slightly roasted malt. It’s quite good but a bit boozy for my taste. de_belg (39) - - AUG 23, 2016
Tasted at Ghent Bierfestival. Aroma: wine, alcohol, sour but fruity, bit smokey. Taste: white wine but rather smoked. Mild bitter aftertaste but mainly alcohol. Very good beer/wine. johndoughty (5403) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle. Lovely smoked port like flavour.Tastes like a classic wine rather than a beer. Smokey and malty-needs to be supped rather than drank. Superb. Inbreak (5813) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2016

0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This one pours a, well I guess you can call it unclear but not directly cloudy looking near bronze colored dark body with a bubbly and sidesticking mild beige top. It has, to my surprise, a relative low nose. I have to struggle to get anything else than a sweet toffee pudding nose here. Some darker types of fruit also detected. Sweet kiwi. It doesn’t smell like a 14 percenter, but it smells nice. Mild but nice. Tastes quite decent also. Rounder than I thought. Lots of raisins, it’s sweet and sticky both in the taste and in the mouth. Soft and prickling on the carbonation. Red caramel and it’s scary lightdrinkable. Sweet but no alcohol either warming or sting. Melon in the finish. Quite nice. 04.08.2016
