330ml bottle, from trade with MonsterMagnet. Many thanks! Pours extremely dark brown with nice tan head. Aroma is rich liquorice and molasses. Taste is bursting with rich dark fruits, figs, raisins, candi sugar, caramel and a hint of nutmeg and spice. This really is a flavoursome little beast, the ageing seems to have matured it beautifully. Many thanks to MrMagnet for sending me this.

33cl bottle @ home. Dark brown color with a deep dark red glare coming through. Medium to full sized off-white to beige head. Smell malts, some hops, sweetness, some fruits, some alcohol and wood. Taste malts, caramel, toasted malts, alcohol, wood, sweetness. Lovely beer! Absolutely delicious, very well balanced. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Completely blown away, bottle costed 1,99euro. Wtf! ads135 (4727) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 15, 2013
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. MaartenRF10 (1950) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2013
Dark brown, small beige head. Strong and tastefull quadrupel. Big full body and nice carbonation. Taste is a heavy caramel malty base with dark dried fruits like raisins and dates and some hints of barrel aging like wood. Has some dry earthiness as well. Great beer! note666 (1300) - Eindhoven, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2012

Brewed once a year as a tribute to Sint Martin, protector of the brewer’s guild in Haarlem. The last two years they brewed
an RIS, while this year they chose to brew a quadrupel, on a limited quality enough for 7500 bottles.
330 ml bottle, at home, poured into a snifter. ABV 10%. Bottle 5784/7500 if that says something.
Pours a very dark brown coloured beer with one finger of beuge head sitting on top. Good retention, it could be better.Good lacing left around the glass.
Very nice aroma, veery frutiy and not like any quadrupel I have had. Hints of green apples, bananas, even refreshing notes of ripe melon,
combine to create a fantastic aroma.
Very nice taste too, quite fruity as well, only once again with all the different fruits you are used to getting in a quadrupel. Alcohol is not
traceable on the taste but it sures gives a warrming feeling even from the first sip. Nice vanila notes as well, while the aftertaste is surely fruity.
Mildly bitter, but all in all a great taste.
Medium thick body, good carbonation that offers just a tiny bite on the tongue. Dry and sort of sticky at the same time on the palate.
Overall this was a great beer, highly recommended. paulvanpelt (642) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2013
Mistig en mahonie van kleur, met kleine, maar blijvende mokka schuimkraag. Aroma vooral van gebrande mouten, maar ook koffie, chocolade, banaan. Smaak is medium bitter, medium zoet. Wordt wat droger in de nasmaak. Volle body, voelt ook vol aan in de mond. Erg lekker bier, jammer van de beperkte oplage. Nisse666 (7531) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2013
