Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Pours dark as Coke with a small tanned head.Aroma of deep red fruits, caramel. Taste is deep malty, spicy and some wood. Lingering malty aftertaste, with some liquorice and herbs. Full bodied, nice.

Good solid old skool interpretation. Spice and stinky soy / vegemite drive the flavours. There’s a little milk chocolate and minerals to finish. Hides the 10% abv very well and this is quite quaffable for a quad. MiP (15943) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2013
Draught. Weak aroma. Cloudy dark brown colour. Big stable creamy light brown head. The flavour is malty and sweetish with a good bready note. Vinous touch as well. Flavourful and well-balanced. VertBaconStrips (2392) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - DEC 29, 2013
Decent flavour, zero hints of the 10%. Mild peppermint candy nose, roasted malts on the sweet side nose, raisins nose, blueberries nose, plum nose, dark caramel nose has taken over the previously claimed roasted malt nose, nose, fresh nose, good nose. Digging this taste - smooth taste and slightly oily taste, sweet dark caramel taste, brown sugar taste, plum taste and date taste, bitter harshness taste after I dumped in the sludge taste, taste, sort of chocolate taste or whatever taste that taste is that I am tasting taste. Radical, dude. Fucking iPhone keeps spell checking ’taste’ as ’Tate’ and every time it reminds me of former American coffee heiress Sharon Tate. Insert whatever here. andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
Pours a semi transparent brown with a small beige ring of head. Aroma is dark sugars/syrups, dark dried fruits, light chocolate notes, pepper mixed with mint(best way I can describe this one), and caramel. Flavour is dark dried fruits, dark sugars, some roasty qualities, some light spicy Belgian yeast phenols, moderately sweet, a mild bitterness mixed with faint alcohol(blended in there quite well) and faint chocolate.
Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Tap at Taphouse, Copenhagen. Appearance is an impenetrable dark brownish red. Small tan ring of head. Aroma is earthy, meaty, tootsie roll. Tastes similar, with added dark fruits like fig and red grape, plus a touch of cola. It’s good. This isn’t far off some of the better Belgian quadrupels. Aaron68 (608) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle @ "Schouskjelleren". June 10, 2014.
Beer from a tulip glass.
Dark brown in color with a beige head and medium carbonation.
Aroma is malt,dark dried fruits,nuts,dark sugar and some yeast and spices.
Tastes sweet and has a warming alcohol feeling.
Quite hidden ABV. DeliriumT (543) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2015
Appropriately carbonated for the style as it spills slowly out the top on opening. Pours black and surprisingly without head (maybe it all spilled out). Beautifully sweet aroma and flavour. Complex date and dark fruit flavours

faint aroma of licorice, dry hops, faint roasted stuff.
