Spciale dhiver 2014 (jinsiste sur le millsime) au marshmallow qui est bien plus un barley wine quune quadruple comme indiqu sur le site. Niveau abv de 9,2 %, pour 22,3 plato, avec 51 ebu. Trs jolie tiquette deep purple... Couleur de la bire, elle, en belle rousse un rien auburn/cuivr, qui aurait plu ma grand-mre, si elle lavait connue, videmment... Clart nette. Bulles moyennes partout, vives. Nappage beige soyeux de surface (ce qui permet dj une nette diffrence barley wine et quad ). Armes dacajou, prune dEnte sur larbre, miel de lavande, pointe de framboise dlicate. 1re bouche souple la trs belle entame malt/pice, avec un ct bois exotique. Arrire-bouche mate, un rien caramlise, mais pas du tout mivre. 2me lensemble vraiment intressant malt/rsine. Arrire-bouche de malt extrmement fin. 3me sublime bouche qui se dveloppe, prend de lampleur. Arrire-bouche de vrai barley wine dans le plus pur sens. Longueur au grand dveloppement sur le ft, lie de vin magnifique, avec de superbes envoles. Jambes huileuses, comme il convient au genre. Levure soyeuse, dlicate, parfume, superbe ligne. Finale qui est un dieu (je ne puis vous dire lequel) descendu sur terre, pardon, dans mon verre. CONCLUSION: sauf dcision par le brasseur, on ne retrouvera plus cette bire, puisquon est pass en 2015 lengelse drop en addition la bire, au lieu du marshmallow .. Alors je lance un appel solennel au brasseur par lintermdiaire de Ste Emelisse: h, Ste Emelisse, faites que nous retrouvions la bire WINTER 2014 tellement sublime dans nos verres qui en sont orphelins... Excusez-moi dtre aussi prcis, Ste Emelisse, mais je sais que vous avez des livres de demande bien tenus, et je suis sr que vous mexaucerez Amen. En principe, quand jtais petit, a marchait ...

Murky brownish dark copper with no head, even when poured with a bit of vigour. Plum and raisin and dark belgian chewy malts on the nose, a bit of cinnamon-raisin bagel, and sugary plum. Rich, sumptuous flavor with plum, raisin, date, a touch of dark cherry, loads of sugary bready tones, some dark belgian malts and dark belgian candy sugar; quite fruity and full, with just a sublime booze heat on the stone fruity sweet finish. Christmas Eve in a glass.

Im not sure why this is rated as so low. I think its fantastic. It expires 12/2014 so it could be two years old. Will have to check on that. Deep mahogany orangey brown with a frothy lacy, off-white head that settles to a thin ring. Smells of a sweet liquorice, and heavy malt, caramel and sugar with soft roast, soft spice and raisin. Medium to full smooth oily palate. Natural sweetness or raisin and liquorish and malt and finishes with a soft bitter slightly roast dry finish with just a hint of sourness. Excellent balance and warms my tummy. No taste of alcohol.

Winterbier 2014. Kolor bordowy, idealnie klarowne. Piana niska, ale bardzo kremowa, mocno oblepia szklo. W aromacie duzo slodu, melasy, pianek, karmelu, ciemnych owocow, syropu kandyzowanego, miety, przypraw, migdalow, bardzo intensywny i bardzo slodki aromat. W odczuciu pelne, oleiste, wysoko wysycone. W smaku sporo slodyczy, karmelu, orzechow wloskich, przypraw, troche chleba, jest tez sporo alkoholu, ktory balansuje slodycz pianek. Goryczka niska, ziemista i mietowa.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2010 this Winterbier had a strong aura and rich, comforting texture. You can feel the booze getting you blitized and being your friend :
Caramel , stickiness, spicy bittering hops..esters ,oranges . Luv this kinda Belgian(style ale) m cause its not even trying to wow and does in a mellow, rich ,eazy buzz.

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!

Quad bordering on barley wine, and really it's more the latter. Syrupy, strong sugar caramel/toffee notes. Quite boozy, and yet only 9%. B- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - FEB 12, 2013
Bruna-mogano con una discreta schiuma mediamente persistente. Aroma di frutti di bosco poi piano piano emergono anche altri sentori facendosi via via pi complessa. Naso che tuttavia rimane incentrato sui caratteri dolci della frutta di bosco e zucchero di canna con una leggera influenza di luppolo. Al palato ingresso dolce, fruttato, caramellato, alcolico con un sottofondo amaro di liquirizia che sembra quasi "tracimare" nel cioccolatoso. Il tutto miscelato molto bene, e dona alla birra un buon carattere e corpo. Ottima e complessa ma mai difficile da bere. Ottima. Ultima cosa: sembra pi una Belgian Strong Ale che una Quadrupel.

Countbeer (6470) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2011
Draft @ PWBF11: Light brown to yellow-ish lacing. Dark amber brown colored beer. A very soft smell of mostly butter and with hints of toffee, wine-ish, caramel and malts. Taste is also very soft, a mix of spices, liquorice, dark fruits, hint of prunes, light bitter and sweet and some hops. Soft mouthfeel, mid body and low carbo.
