thepeter (326) - London, Greater London, - AUG 13, 2012
A - Hazy to the point of being Murky. Dark brown and a very cool yellow and brown when held up to light. S - Molasses, brown sugar, oatmeal raisin cookies, yeast, alcohol, musty grapes, and chocolate malt balls (whoppers, Maltesers) T - Dark fruit, candy sugar, anise, chocolate brandy, roasted caramel malt. Wonderful taste at the back end, dry, yeasty, dark bread with a hint of pepper and some alcohol to warm the soul. Very complex and wonderful from start to finish. M&D - decent Carbonation that tickles the throat, smooth but lighter bodied than I expected. Even with it’s strength I could easily drink more than one and feel great about it.

Bottle. Pours a dark murky brown with a slowly fading light beige bubbly to foamy head. Aroma is of dark fruits, blackcurrant, figs, dates, nuts, treacle. Taste is of treacle, blackcurrant, figs, nuts, balanced. Oily mouthfeel, slightly dry mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Amazing Belgium quad. Notes of plum raisin figs. The taste is both complex and subtle. Very Nuanced. high and alcohol and calories, 11.3 percent and 339 respectively. Sublime. A perfect beer. I have been drinking this beer for sometime now. The best beer I've ever had Bar none. Don't know why I didn't notice it in my first review but rum soaked raisins is definitely present in the finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

eltoti (4) - PORTUGAL - SEP 18, 2017 does not count
In the aroma you scent a caramel, fuity and wood. Color is a strong cooper/light brown. Almost doesn't have foam. Has a very strong sweet flavour at the beggining with a caramel and fuity touch. As the time passes you get less sweet and more sour, but not very much. As you finish the drink you get a very strong wood flavour that stays for a long time. Has a rich, medium body and a creamy texture. The carbonation is very soft.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 Brutálisan jó sör! Illatában és ízében karamell fedezhető fel! Sötétbarna színű szüretlen sör! Karakteres, erős alkoholtartalmú! Imádom !

Laharem (15) - POLAND - SEP 11, 2017
Ciemnobrązowa barwa, całkiem spore nasycenie, pojawia się obfita, ale nietrwała piana. W aromacie karmel, ciemne owoce, szlachetny alkohol. W smaku mocno alkoholowe, czuć ciemne owoce i karmel, minimalna goryczka.
