Bottle from Geers. Dark brown colour, creamy beige foam. Gusher! Nose of caramel, red wine, raisins and sugar. Vinous, some notes of balsamico. Bitter hoppy finish. Nice but too pricy. GothGargoyle (2588) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 19, 2015
Darkish brown with a decent light chocolate head. Aroma is plums, dates, prunes, figs, red wine, oak. Full bodied, slightly velvety mouthfeel, fruity with a vinous finish and a warming hint of booze. Taste is plums, red wine, oak, chocolate. ngeaney (97) - SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2015
Dark brown colour, with an off-white head that is quite large for this style. The aroma is amazing, lots of vanilla, wood, red wine barrels right off the nose. Getting lots of dark fruits, chocolate, this beer is a true sipper and a great beer to nose all night.
The taste is similar to the aroma, a bit sweet with hints of toffee and caramel with the high alcohol very well hidden. The red wine touch makes this a great Belgian Strong Quadruple and a big favourite of mine, highly recommended. Idiosynkrasie (8216) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2015
250ml bottle. Cloudy, opaque, dark brown colour with red glimmer and huge, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, beige head; humongous lacings. Vinous aroma, hints of oak, blue grapes, dark berries, a touch of cinnamon, cautious hints of chocolate. Taste is sweet with dry overtones, vinous, slightly fruity, minimally chocolately, notes of blue grapes, dark berries, hints of warming alcohol; full body, some alleviating carbonation. Rich and complex, thereby flattering sweet-ish and relatively "easy" drinkable. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2015
Had this quite a while ago in Delirium Hoppy Loft. Didn’t rate it then, will do now.
Really enjoyed this beer, was very full of taste and lots of wine taste in it. Is it really because of the story, no idea, but did enjoy it a lot in general.

Bottle, nice label! Pours dark brown with reddish shine and slight frothy big ever lasting cream head. Aroma is very nice and sweet with slight acidity and some sherry grapes. Sweet fruits, some berries among over-ripe raspberries, caramel malts, toasty backbone. Red wine, oak and some vanilla. Taste is heavy sweet, then turns acidic. More quad in taste. Caramel, toasty malts, vanilla, some oak and vanilla. Some marmelade and berries. Quite high carbonation makes the body light for ABV. Really balanced. Slight bitter tannins. Alcohol makes finish dry along the toasty malts. Vestergaard (2091) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle thanks to Magnus. Pours a hazy, Dark brown with a huge, off White, long lasting head. Aroma is very vinous! Red wine, tannins, oak, strawberry, caramel, Dark dried fruits. Black currant. Very fruity, slight toast. Taste is really vinous! Dry oak, lovely tartness, vanilla, sweet, intense fruit. Crazy balance between the toasty, belgian sweetness and the dry, tart vinousness. Huge surprise! High carb and surprisingly light body.

TET (3285) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2015
Brewed 20.12.12, BBE 20.12.17, Batch 866B. A very dark brown, a head is big and light brown. Aroma has richness of dried fruits, prunes, raisins, also fresh fruitness of perries and banana, port wine, warming. Complex and enjoyable aroma. Taste is more straightforward than aroma, prunes raisins, perries, some grapes and barrel, also some spicyness in the end. Almost full bodied, nice carbonation is lightening the palate, quite smooth. I haven’t tasted this as a young but now as an older, matured and balanced. The fruitful quad, tasteful beer. Gerbeer (4158) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with moderate creamy tan head. Aromas of balsamic vinegar, dark fruit and sweet roasted malts. Flavors of sweet doughy malts, reduced red wine vinegar and chocolate. Interesting mix. Nice.
