Bottle @ Odense tasting. Dark brown body with a small light brown head. Aroma is dried fruit, figs, malt, sweet ripe fruit and banana. Flavor is malt caramel, ripe fruit, nuts, and yeast. Alcohol is well hidden. Davros (3178) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2011
Pours dark brown with a small head.
Nose shows caramelised banana, chocolate, soft alcohol, rose-like perfume and raisins. Pretty full on.
Lots of alcohol shows upon tasting, along with heads of sweet brown sugar and golden syrup. Long lasting finish with plenty of candi sugar. Not amazingly complex for the style.
Moderately low carbonation could be higher. TET (3030) - Kaarina, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2016
A dark brown beer, a head is medium and beige. Aroma has lots of dark and riped fruits, raisins and prunes, herbal bitterness, no alcohol. Authentic and pleasant aroma. Taste has sweet and dried fruitness, raisins, some toffee, only hint of drying spicyness. Full bodied and smooth. More complexicity to taste and then this beer would be great. Well, very good beer, anyway. ALLOVATE (3014) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2014
Muddy, murky brown. Headless, oily legs. Heavy set savoury fruit nose. Yeasty, bready, burnt toast and vinous, thick, liqueurish stone fruit with just a hint of spice. Soapy, light body. Remarkably light. Sticky, bitter/sweet raisin and sultana finish. Pleasant but bland. suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Almost black colored pour. Large tan head that slowly falls away. Plenty of lacing left behind. Chocolate, raisin, and sugar aroma. Slight bit of earthy yeastiness as well. Taste is awesome. Big raisin, prune, some chocolate and vanilla. Sweet, almost barleywine like. Hint of alcohol, but it is really well hidden. This is way better than I thought it would be.
Embrouille (2852) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 24, 2011
Bottled 50cl. Buttery aroma which is reminiscent of dried fruit, plums, banana and candy sugar. Full bodied. Buttery taste too. I was quite dissapointed by this Abt. Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 24, 2011

A dark brown, almost black colored beer, with a thick foamy dark beige head. The aroma of zoet dark fruits with notes of chocolate malt with hint of spices. The taste is sweet, dark fruits, chocolate malt, a little spicy with notes of alcohol. RasmusOtt (2758) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014 pours a very dark prown with a small brown head. Stuff in here has a big malt profile, dark sweet dried fruits, caramel, yeast, spices and some fruits (I kinda got some banana as well). Reminded me alot of the Rochefort 10 in some ways. Lore (2733) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 6, 2016
hazy brown colour with reddish notes, moderate sized creamy beige-ish head; aroma of dried fruits like cherry, plum, maybe dates, too, milk chocolate, burnt sugar/milk fudge, yeast, anise and hints of herbal notes; taste of dried plum, dates, caramel notes, anise again, some milk chocolate and hints of alcoholic spiciness; quite good quadrupel, though definitely not among the best ones
