3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle served in Duvel snifter: Pours a coppery hue with an initial large frothy white head that does fade a bit, okay lace. The aroma has notes of banana, apricot, peach, dusty earthy esters, some alcohol and candi sugar, and caramlized biscuity malts. The taste is a touch sweet and fruity with a dollop of spicy notes on the finish. Unlike many Quads this does not have the character of Special B malts nor the overall depth. Seems more like an amped up Tripel with all the same yeastie notes. The mouth feel is smooth and moderately carbonated with some boozy warmth as well. Gotta admit I am a bit disappointed in this beer, was expecting something it failed to deliver upon.
Bottle shared by Tmoney99 from notes. Pours a dark golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have some sweet malts, Belgian yeast, wood, mild barrel notes on the nose with some vinous character on the flavor, some spices, dark fruit with some signs of the alcohol.

Bottiglia da 0,33. Schiuma abbondantissima e persistentissima. Colore vermiglio opalescente. Carbonatura adeguata leggermente abbondante. Aroma di ciliege, amarene e banana. Gusto rotondo e dolciastro. Finale lungo ma delicato. Gradazione rilevante. Gran Quadruple Consiglio 10/10 Kleurplaatje (208) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2017
Pours dark orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is malty, toasted... Yeast and caramels, slight dark fruits... Flavor is sticky sweet with a clear alcohol burn. Burnt sugar notes, clear yeast, caramels, ripe fruits, something spicy... Finish is sweet and liquor-like (alcohol...) Medium bodied, thick, sticky texture, lively carbonated. It sure is a good brew, but the liquor-like alcohol sting is quite disturbing, odd and to a minor extent somewhat unpleasant as well. kybo92 (67) - Zadar, CROATIA - JUL 11, 2017
Odličan, al za koplje lošiji od "orginala.".................,,.......... cmacklin (1176) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 9, 2017

Kolor brazowawy, metnawy. Niezły w smaku, ale za bardzo czuć alkohol. Niezłe piwo, ale nie nazwałbym quadruplem. jjsint (3110) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2017
Bottle from Cafe Bruxelles, Leicester. Orange/gold, with a swirl of white head. Caramel, clementine, banana, hazelnut, brandy. Taste is sweet and alcohol-laden with a spicy happiness holding it in balance. Long sweet finish with apricot syrup and light sweet spices. Thick body, heavily carbonated. This is really, really good. Boozy but not overpowering, sweet without being cloying. Love it. Luneylane (193) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - JUN 29, 2017
A bottle from Muzha Jason’s, drunk at home. Aroma: beef extract, oxtail soup. Appearance: reddish-brown, minimal tan head. Palate: medium-bodied and thick, soft carbonation, sweet finish. Taste: medium sweet; unbalanced, need more bitterness. How is this different from regular Gulden Draak? I can’t taste the difference. Nurmis (687) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2017
Bottle, 33cl. Pours hazy, bit reddish amber. Huge white head. Yeast, caramel, apricot, bit of spices. Bit boozy.
