Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2013. Fruity smell with dried fruit. Similar taste with chocolate and a boozy finish. Felt a bit too young and probably needs to age a bit to get the flavours right. Juni88 (84) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2013
Heavy beer. I can see the resemblance to other quadrupels when it comes to taste, but it seems to be not as balanced as others. Still, interesting and quite enjoyable. TBone (19173) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Thanks bierkoning! Dark murky brown color, small beige head. Caramel, raisins in the aroma. Medium-bodied. Raisins, prunes, alcohol, salted licorice in the flavor. A bit raw but quite delicious abt. markschiedon (692) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2014 This strong dark beer has an chocolate aroma, the taste is more espresso like and the caramalt is clearly testable. The quadruple has a very thick mouth. A complex beer for the cold winter days.
Drinking blind from a 33 cl bottle.
Bottle 1,5 year old.
In the aroma perfume, alcohol raisins, oxidation and diluent.
The clear red brown beer has a small brown head.

Very tasty, very thick. Both in terms of taste and mouthfeel. Licorice dominates this black beer, but there is some mild coffee flavoring as well. Picked this up at ABC beer in the Hague, 2013. berntholer (1619) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2013

Rich quadrupel with a body of sweet caramalt with chocolate and roasted coffee. The hops give the beer a nice bitter and fruity finish. Especially the Nelson Sauvin is great.
