18/I/15 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: n/a (2015-50) 77ships (10770) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 24, 2015
Clear dark purple brown beer, small layer of big bubbles, dissipates immediately. Aroma: lots of alcohol, dried fruits, caramel, vanilla touch, sugary, chocolate. MF: no carbon, medium body. Taste: lots and lots of alcohol, bit sugary, caramel. Aftertaste: just more alcohol, alcohol, slightly sourish touch, more alcohol, soft touch of mocha, very thin, alcoholic. Congratz, you made alcohol. I wouldn’t even call it beer, actually. :(
Thanks to tderoeck! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ “Tim needs to get rid of his ticks” Tasting. Enjoyed together with tderoeck, Benzai & Alengrin. Dark brownish amber with no head. Nose is boozy sherry oxidation, flat varnish, oak, paint-like oxidation. Taste is a boozy flat mix of oxidized sherry beer not in a favorable way mixed with flavours reminiscent of paint, completely flat with some cardboard in the back, boozy (prob. at least partially due to lack carbonation), furniture wood. This isn’t how it should be. Not good at all. Benzai (16522) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2013
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear dark red color, virtually no head. Only get malts and a light sweetness in the aroma. Taste malts, sweetness, lightly alcohol, somehow lightly some wood. Hmm not one of the best Quadruples I’ve had. And that might actually be lightly put. Flat to average carbonation and average body at best. Not very good.

Bottle @ benzai. Ruby colour with no head. Smells malts, sweet, oak. Tastes quite sweet, slightly glue, oak, wood. Quite thin, low carbo. Dedollewaitor (16315) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle @ Odense Tasting June 2013. Pours dark brown with a off white head. Nose is serpentine and tart fruit. Flavor is dark sugar, caramel, prune and lots of alcohol. Vinous and quite complex flavor. JorisPPattyn (10062) - BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2013
B. C. "H." imitation over cola-coloured beer. Sweet, liqueurish nose; spirit, but especially like a vintage, fortified wine, if certainly not necessarily port. Tastes as an old, madeirised strong Belgian ale. Which is what it is, probably. Oxydation in a mild way (no BBD to be perceived). Faint, short bitterish impression, followed by (diluted) syrupy fruitiness. Faint impression of cinnamon, after some time. Flat as a pancake, very syrupy if short of sticky. Madeirised. Sweet. Not much more to tell. Travlr (25767) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Beerandblues2, thank you sir! Clear light brown color, tiny tan edge head. Aroma of chocolate liquer. Taste is light mint, milk chocolate, espresso. Nice.
