LoFi (1714) - Gteborg, - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle at Titos cafe, Georgioupolis, Crete. Reddish copper with a smaller beige head. Aroma: fruity, also dried fruits, ripe pears, syrup, red berries. Taste: dried fruits (of both the dark and exotic kind), sweet, light boozy, ripe pears and red apples, cherries in liqueur. Quite full-bodied. A pretty nice quad that doesnt feel too heavy in the Greek heat. Doesnt compete with the better ones though.

alteregoo (1348) - Kalisz, POLAND - APR 21, 2017
Piana obfita, średnio trwała. Barwa miedziana, klarowna. Aromat lekko kwaskowy, troszkę owocw, karmelu, rodzynek, starego chmielu i gwoździ. W smaku dość słodkie, są figi, kandyzowane owoce, karmel, mid, lekka kwaskowość suszonej żurawiny, średnia do niskiej, ziołowo pestkowa goryczka. W posmaku znw wyraźny skunks i solidna żelazistość. Wysokie wysycenie, wodniste, z lekkim alkoholowym pieczeniem w odczuciu.
Jeden ze słabszych quadw, jakie dane mi było degustować na blogu, a liczne wady nie pomagają. Budzi skojarzenia z gorszymi warkami Gulden Draak.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Hndlerlieferung). Klares Braun mit stark entwickelter Schaumkrone im Glas. Alkohollastige Malzigkeit. Der industrielle Charakter schaut durch.

I do like Grimbergen beers, despite the fact they tends to use more artificial and exotic elements to difference themselves from others. I heard about this one from my local "beertender", apparently a strong one. Difficult to believe at first, but seeing its average score on ratebeer, I had to try it, especially after I bought one for a friend without knowing what it worth. Well, this was good indeed. Strong hints of caramel and spices, high alcohol level and much deeper taste than other Grimbergen products. A pleasant surprise. Still not on the same level as my favorite abbey beers but definitely APPROVED BY TAVERNYS BLACK METAL CREW!

Acheter tabac&co palais des bires dans famiflora dottignies. Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur bronzatre (acajou) avec des jolie reflet ruby. Petit col de mousse trs lger en surplomb . Au nez : cest fruite type raisin des vignes, sensation dalcool type liquoreux comme muscadet /porto. En bouche : un peu liquoreux en effet puissance de l alcool ! Porto sans doute . Fruit raisins de vignes, prune et cerise kirsch ! Assez simple en fin de bouche et longueur plutt moyenne . Un peu dommage.

VueltaBirrista (98) - Murcia, SPAIN - OCT 21, 2016
De un marrn terroso tan denso que con poca luz parece totalmente negro. La cabeza de espuma es generosa, persistente y menos cremosa que otras cervezas tipo Abada. Si ponemos en una balanza Aroma/Sabor su sabor gana por goleada. En nariz es aparece algo de cereal y fruta. En cambio es en boca donde despliega todo su potencial: caramelo tostado, fruta madura y toda su carga alcohlica y gran cuerpo.
