33cl bottle. Hazy reddish copper with a thin off-white lacing. Caramel, toffee, biscuit, vanilla and wood. Good. erikaraeb (218) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 28, 2017
Generally mild in aroma and taste, especially for a BA. Earthy in flavour with an acidic, unnamable fruit in the background. Highly drinkable, though the mouthfeel is far from watery. rafael52 (1450) - Łódź, POLAND - JUN 27, 2017
Kolor: bursztynowy, zamglony.ironcontra (268) - POLAND - JUN 25, 2017
Piana: obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, sycząca, w miarę trwała.
Zapach: trochę aromatów słodowych, suszonych owoców, trochę aromatów drewna, całość sprawia słodkie wrażenie.
Smak: wyraźna pełnia, trochę słodyczy, sporo nut suszonych owoców, trochę nut drewna, średnia goryczka, delikatnie alkoholowa.
Alcohol is well hidden, pretty mild and drinkable for a quad, which has its good sides because its not overly sweet like some, even some tart fruit in there, gooseberry maybe? vincentvega72 (756) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2017
Kastanjebruin van kleur met een off-white kleurige schuimkraag. Aroma en smaken van donker fruit, dadels, houttonen, jonge eik, hint vanille, stroop. Redelijk vol en zeer soepel in de mond. Licht plakkerige zoete afdronk. Beetje warmend. Zeker een upgrade van het basisbier (ongelovige thomas). Mooie Quad.

Monthly bottle share at Chez Sophie: 22nd May 2017. Four way split. Cheers Simon for the 33cl bottle: BBD 23rd Dec 2018. Amber pour with a red hue to it, the head a beige affair. I found this to be a sweet brew with vanilla and woody flavours to the fore: liked it. minutemat (5471) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2017
330ml bottle @ monthly tasting, courtesy of Simon. Thanks chap! Pours a deep reddish amber, smudged tan head. Aroma is ripened dark fruits, moderately sweet caramelised malt. Taste is smooth, balanced sweet candied fruits, relaxing caramel malts.. perhaps a little boozy rich, but quite pleasant and flavoursome. klm1 (1534) - Bled/SF, - MAY 21, 2017
Pours dark reddish brown, slightly clear with foamy beige long lasting head. Aroma: malts with notes of caramel, toasted toffee, biscuit, dark fruit esters...flavour follows aroma: intense dark fruit esters, as forest fruits, plums, resins, some muscat grape notes, rich malt charackter with notes of caramel, toasted toffee...and some sherry-like alcohol note. Finish is slightly dry, fruity, body is full, texture smooth, carbonation is moderate medium. Kleurplaatje (203) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2017
Pours reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma is fruity, roasty and somewhat vinous. Clear presence of forest fruits in the nose. Flavor is bittersweet. Biscuits, caramel, dark fruits, hops, vanilla, wood, spices... Warming finish. Excellent. Bit of an alcohol bite though, but its complexity makes it up pretty well. Finish is sweet, with a dryish tone. Syrupy texture, fizzy carbonation. Definitely a tasty one, but it has its sharp edges. Ungstrup (37556) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2017
Draft. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, alcohol, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, caramel, and alcohol, leading to a bitter finish.
