4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep fruits, yeast, oats and biscuit malts on the nose. Dark amber/brown with a massive foam. Big alcohol presence with pleasant caramel, oat, barley and fresh hop notes that dance around the palate. Big complexity with some hidden undertones of herbs, belgian candi syrup, roasted molasses and mocha. Overall, this is really strong, full-bodied, and complex. I’d give this an A+ rating.
Flaske. Brunravfarvet klar med et stort skumhoved. Duft af gær alkohol og metallisk. Smagen er belgiskbrownmed en del sukker. Ikke noget særligt. PaulMcClure (17) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 2, 2017
There’s a lot going on in this beer; so much so that it’s not something I’d advise indulging in frequently. With that being said, it is among the most pleasant beers I’ve ever had the pleasure of sipping and enjoying slowly. Very dark roasted flavors are well balanced with the sweetness and background booziness. neontb (69) - - JUL 1, 2017
Excellent belgian strong ale. Pours dark brown with a quickly disappearing head. Yeasty grassy aroma with a lot of belgian yeast, good aroma though. Taste is dark malt/roasted coffee/ dark chocolate. Finish is nice, with a lingering aftertaste. Excellent. Tried this up against Rochefort 10 and Chimay blue on the same night, this was second best (1. Roch 10, 2. Nocturnum 3. Chimay Blue, but all in my opinion excellent). bohitomi (11) - - JUN 30, 2017
The taste quickly disappears. Lots of bubbles. A bit bitter. However I loved the aftertaste.

Pours a ruby black with a lot of slowly dissipating beige head. Very slowly dissipating. Banana spice in the nose. Lots going on here. Some banana bread, some raisin, malty and sweet but balanced nicely. Very good. ALIBALI (2201) - Kiel, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2017

For a non abbey Quad, it’s fantastic got the edge on Gulden Draak. I prefer this to Orval even, (heathen). Heady whiskey, brown bread, dates, Christmas pudding of a beer. But not clawing or sickly sweet. Mouthfeel is not as great as say Pannepot Fisherman’s Ale, it’s still complex and brandy warming. beer-yum (1762) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 26, 2017
Restrained aroma in a deep red brown pour. Complex yet subtle mix of grain and fruit make this a deliciously different brew (from the usual IPA at least).
