domienS (250) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2013
Dark beer with a light amber foamy head, almost no saturation. Smells malty, hoppy, spicy, liquorish and a little caramel. Full bodied taste, little bitterness. Long and nice aftertaste. Really good Christmas beer, could drink a few of these during cold winter days :)

Well, not bad at all, but the body and the taste are a bit too watery for a quadrupel ale in my opinion. just my opinion!

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Russet brown with a one-finger beige head. Raisin and brown sugar dominates the reticent aroma, which also gives hints of cocoa, spice, and citrus zest. The flavors not so shy, with a deft balance between raisin-and-fig sweetness and herbal bittering hops and orange zest. The result is a big beer that drinks small, a somewhat brooding beer that ends up bright and fresh. Very well done.
