(Bottle 65 cl) Clear amber with a small, off-white head. Sweetish aroma of overripe fruit. Marked caramel sweetness from a shipload of malts. Plenty, fruity esters and a strong, sherry like alcohol. Almost no bitterness making this resemble a British Barleywine more than an Abt/Quadrupel. 291205 chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2006
Bottle, at Københavnske Øldage, May 2006. Mid amber colour - quite pale for a quad (not that I’ve had too many). Very fat and rich aroma. Jammy fruit, with plums, and I do get cherries too. Also spicy orange peel, maybe marmalade. On the palate there’s more of the sae. Boozy and liquorous. Rather sweet for my taste and a bit sticky. A hot alcoholic afterburn didn’t enhance the experience. A sipper for sure. I think I might struggle with a full bottle.

Amber color. Strong Ale, alcohol kick, a hint of liquorice (?) and light caramel and hazelnuts aroma. The final has some unroasted nuts. Not convincing. saxo (19523) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2007

22 oz. bottle, pours dark amber with a small white head. Aroma of molasses, yeast and sweet malts. Flavour of candied sugar, spices, plum, black currant, cherries and a slight alcohol bite.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2008 Slightly hazy golden-amber. Plasticy nose with peach and alcohol. Very plasticy, with thick, gluey malts. SOme peach/pear fruitiness. Stiff shot of alcohol helps improve drinkability but only to a point. rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2005
(Stockholm Beer Festival 2005) Amber, thin white head. Wheatish aroma with bubbelgum, banana and some nutty notes. Fruity and quite strong flavor, some hops, some malts, some alcohol coming through. Banana notes. TBone (18228) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005

Copper brown, small off-white head. Fruity (apple, strawberry) yeast - very Belgian nose. Full-bodied, liquerish, very sweet and sugary. Maybe needs a couple of years in the cellar to cut the extra sweetness.
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a hazy, orange-golden body under a small off-white head. Resiny, sweetish nose with alcohol and some mint. Quite pleasant, but not much like a quad. The flavor on the other hand, is more spot on, with some dried fruits, alcohol, sweet fruityness, sufficient bitterness and a faint spicy touch. Full body, quite warming. Lasting finish with fresh and dried fruits, sweetness and enough bitterness to give it some balance. Overall, this one’s a bit too much in a way, but it’s definately a beer I could drink more of. 091230 FatPhil (17080) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 25, 2016
660ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut!
Erm, which Latvian lager is this? Mashy and raw. Taste is the same, hot alcohol, thin and adjuncty. Crazy raw. Completely lacking in beer, at least as the brewed stuff. Mashy raw. Boozt builds up aggressively. Still raw and mashy sip after sip. I have a 7 year old bottle of this, I hope it is better.
