Thank you Kraddel! 500 ml. bottle sampled @ Bierfestival Brugge 2016. Bottled on 28/08/2013. GUSHER. Black, little tanned head on the side. Nose is coffee grains, mocha, chocolate, huge licorice, hay, verbal & very big varnish. Taste is lots of varnish & licorice, herbal, boozy, alcoholic, oxidation, sugar, syrup, molasses. Oxidized varnish body. Too much of varnish in the taste too really shine but definitely better than expected, carries some good qualities.

Bottle no. 88 / 760 @ weekly tasting shared by Joes. Dark brown color with a nice deep dark red glare coming through, average to medium sized light brown head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is a bit faint, I don’t get anything distinctive really. I must admit though, my nose has been off all night somehow even though I don’t have a cold or anything. Weird. Some malts, some liquor, a hint of sweet. Taste malts, sweetish lightly, a subtle hint of liquor, a little sugary. Hmm I don’t really get the high scores for this beer. I really like quadrupels, but -and I admit, perhaps because of too high expectations- I’m a little disappointed by this beer. DutchDrebus (6048) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2014
