LarsEngen (367) - Sandvika, - MAY 7, 2013
25 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Bottle nr 00280. Pours dark brown with a medium offwhite head that leaves a nice lacing. Extreme complex aroma with strong notes of red wine, oak, malt, dark dried fruits, sherry and caramel. Flavour is complex too with light bitterness, medium sweetness, light dryness, soft carbonation, very full body and a long complex aftertaste with redwine, oak and some fruits. Strange but a very cool one.

Korcz (1051) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 3, 2016
Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Genialne bogactwo smaku i aromatu. Masa czerwonych owoców i beczki po winie, figi, czekolada. Masakra.

Lore (2292) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 1, 2016
brown colour, largwe, though quickly collapsing beige head; aroma of apple, chocolate, vinegar notes, raisins, plum jam, caramel and some dried sour cherry; taste of dark chocolate, plum jam, dried sour cherry and raisins soaked in cognac, some red wine notes and hints of balsamic vinegar;definitely not a usual quadrupel, but really enjoyable

lupuLust (150) - Freiburg, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2016
Shared with bartlebier. 1000 takk! Aromas of dried fruits and alcohol. Malty sweet but dry wood aged pleasant high-alcohol Ale. Not the typical Abt but a nice beer with interesting aging story.

fkoolen (1047) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2016 Bottle at home, bottled 20.12.12, #02343. Small gusher. Deep brown colour, creamy and stable beige head. Rich vinous notes immediately fill the nostrils, alongside ripe apples, dried fruits, brandy, apple pie, burnt caramel, earthy. Great complexity tastewise as well, nicely porto-vinous, fruity, sweet and bitter; quite alcoholic. Lingering ripe apple, vinous aftertaste. Good body, medium carbonation.

Nothing like the sibling the Borealis. Wine taste from the barrels put me right off, was expecting a lot after tasting Borealis.

OminouSC2 (499) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2016 Dark burgundy color. Sweet and sour notes in the aroma, the wine barrels leaves its mark. Taste is just wonderful with a complex, vinous taste. Some sweet tastes of honey that lingers on during the long, warm finish. Amazing Abt/Quad!

butelka, warka... bylo wiecej niz jedna? warka z 20.12.12 do 20.12.17, batch 866B - cokolwiek by to nie znaczylo. Sliczna i bardzo wysoka piana, opadajaca dosc powoli, dlugo trzymajaca sie gesta, kremowa warstwa pol cm. Samo piwo nieco metnawe, czerwonawo-miedziano-brazowe. Aromaty dosc intensywne. Owoce ciemne, zarowno swieze (wisnie, czeresnie) jak i suszone (rodzynki, figi, sliwki). karmel. melasa. ciut wanilii. lekko funky. winne. jakies nutki ciemnych slodow w strone kawy. ciut jakichs przypraw. fajna, bardzo zlozona i bardzo ladnie ulozona ta aromatyczna paleta. a w ustach jej powtorka :) do tego lekka kwaskowatosc, lekka slodycz, lekka goryczka, przyzwoita pelnia, srednia ale wyrazna lepkosc. ciut tanin. Jakbym mial to w stylach ujac, to quad z nalecialosciami winnego flandersa - taki rodzimy napoj australijski z aborygenskimi korzeniami, jak nic ;) super ukryty alkohol, lekko rozgrzewa i moze ciut daje takiego poszczypywania w ustach. jednym slowem: ekstraklasa. Zarazem ciekawe, na ile marketing czlowiekowi percepcje zryl? choc skoro skutecznie zryl, to w czym problem? ;)

ALLOVATE (2936) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2016
Cheers to bergstaden for this one.
At cellar temperature and into a snifter. Cola brown to black in the glass. Big plume of foam rises and settles a tight, silky dollop of tannish cream. Aroma is dominated by notes of tawny Port, seaweed, muscatels and rye bread (?) with just a little vanilla, cocoa, earth and cellar must. The aroma fades quickly. Very much a glass of red wine in a dark ale. Plummy, astringent finish gives a bit of a pucker to the mouth. Smooth and silky in feel otherwise. Warming swallow but not hot. Aside the vinous notes it reminds me of a well-made Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte with cherries, chocolate and cream. Mmmm, liquid dessert - sweet, savoury, sour, tart. Carbonation is very soft to foamy. This is a tasty slow-sipper. Really packs a punch and has enough complexity and balance 4 years down the track. Impressive as I expected it to be!! (Brewed 20/12/12, 25cL)
