Pours mahogany brown with white foam. Nose is chocolate, nougat, hazelnuts, butter. Very nice and balanced mouthfeel, full bodied with a surprisingly nutty finish! Really interesting! Chocolate and fried fruits like plums also appearing. A wonerful long zipper! markextrae (4460) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2017

Slightly hazy dark cobber with light brown head. Aroma has lots of fruit esters (banana, apple), notes of dried fruits (prunes, raisins etc), malty notes of caramel and bread and lots of alcohol. Nice complexity. The taste is medium to heavy sweet, slightly acidic and very lightly bitter. Flavor has notes of dried fruits and toffee. Lots of flavor and complexity. I like it.

1 year in the cellar : Deeply clouded and murky reddish brown color with good activity and a floating mist of yeast. Faint creamy light brown 1 finger head, lasting around 2 minutes, with a swirl it makes decent legs. Flavors of prunes, plums, cherries, raisins, walnuts, dark roasted grains, molasses, caramel, coffee, cocoa, wood, herbal spices. Thick and rich dark fruity sugary feel, appetizer like, yet with a sharp spicy and malty sensation. Slick and smooth medium body with almost champagne like carbonation, highly crispy. Very strong finish, vinous and port like, pleasant dark fruits with burnt malts, sharp earthy spices and yeast, with notes of peppercorn and oak. I can almost directly taste the barrel. Not excessively dry and heavy like most Quads, more leaning towards a barley wine feel. Incredible taste, balance, and intensity. Highly complex with tons of rich flavors. Highly warming and still a bit fresh. Overall exquisite quality craft. Probably the best one from DDC, truly my favorite one form them until now, the hype is real. I can rarely drink a whole bottle of quad by myself, but this time it was so easy. Nische (2437) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2017
Bottle from Systembolaget, cellared for about a year. Pours dark copper brown with a faint beige head. Aroma and taste of dates, figs, light nuttiness. Dried plum, clean dark caramel. Smooth and creamy texture. Pretty nice overall with a slight tint of booze.

Bottle @ home. Cellared for two years. Dark copper to brown color with medium head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with red fruits, intense caramel, dark syrup, herbs, spices, raisins, plums and milk chocolate. Taste has sweet red fruits, dark syrup, deep caramel, plums, wood, milk chocolate. Body is medium to big. High carbonation, a bit sticky. Finish is drier and smooth with lingering port wine like fruitiness. Nicely balanced. coachd (907) - Missouri, USA - FEB 24, 2017
Chocolatey aroma with plum and booze. Amber color with lots of sediment in the pour. Sweeter than most quads with rich dark fruit flavor, plum and oak. Slight booze burn aftertaste. Good smooth palate. This was really good. Hopmaestro (1720) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2017
Aroma is massive from dark fruits such as plums, figs and raisins. Sweet malty and some nuts as well. Taste is sweet, dark toffee, raisins and a touch of yeast. Light brandy notes and also a touch of warming alcohol. I had one of these earlier this year, and let me tell you, it gets better with some rest time in the stash. Andgun87 (45) - - FEB 3, 2017
Matured 1 and a half year on bottle which was probably a little too long. A great fruity aroma lingers in the background and gives a hint of what may have been. The taste is also flawed by the aging, with notes of old paper.

För att vara en Brown Ale är den helt ok. Tror nog att jag hade lagrat den för länge, 1 år och 3 månader. Kändes platt och smakerna var för svaga. Lite besviken.
