11.16 bottle. Murky, opaque burgundy-red. Smooth on the palate, classic quality Danish feel. Malt and yeast forward, with some raisiny chocolate tones. Really balanced, quite a well executed beer. I can deal with this one being caled a Quad, as it really does capture all those big malty, fruity flavors..but also retains a really creamy, smooth body. Great beer!

dark fruit and sweet with a bit of fired caramel or toffee. a bit of earth and some hop character in the head. mellow moderate body and bit of sting to this brown ale. Iphonephan (6985) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2012

11.2oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours brown with a cream-colored head. Aroma of chocolate and caramel malts, some light spices from the yeast, and floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice balance of sweetness and bitterness. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

Whole Foods, Bowery 12oz ($5): Pours dark brown with a rather small head. Aroma is sorachi ace, lemon, dark malts, dark fruits, and weird European candy. Taste is like a dark sorahi ace IPA. some minor bitterness. The aftertaste is long and sustained. Very lightly astringent. Minor sweetness. A strange fruitiness. This is weird, but not that great. sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2012

0.11.12(Flasche):rotbraun, schnell sinkender Schaum. Sehr malziges Aroma, lakritze und brauner Zucker, ein Pulk an Gewürzaromen. Der Antunk ist sehr stark malzbetont. Hinten heraus wirds bitter, aber recht zurückhaltend. Beginnend auf dem Gaumen bis in den Abgang etwickelt sich eine immer stärker werdende alkoholische Note. Das versauts leider etwas.
