UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 Pours an average frothy light brown head that fully diminishes. Body is clear and sparkling, with amber color. Aroma contains straw, caramel, lemon, dough, grape, raisin, plum, pineapple, cherry, red wine, tawny port, cask wood, brown sugar, spices and alcohol. Flavor starts off light acidic, to quickly go to sweet and vineous. Finish is sweet, very light bitter and warming alcohol. Body is medium, with creamy texture and soft carbonation. It’s got all the flavors of the regular Quadrupel, but with fruits and wine added. I can imagine the vineous and fruity taste and sweetness are too much, but I just love it. One of the best I have ever had.
Had another one after a year. No dramatic changes, but the vineous taste seems more present and more tawny port like. Still great!
Another one two years after. Almost no carbonation left. Taste is even more like port and wine. Original quadrupel taste is still there as well. Sweetness is the main flavor, a little bit bitterness is left. Less complex in its aromas, but still very good.
Mild and smooth, round and fresh. Caramel, slightly sourish red cherries. Mild, caramel, nice wood with alcoholic hints. Round, refreshing, nice deep and highly drinkable. Koelschtrinker (20216) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 10, 2016

pours murky light brown with a small dirty light beige head, little no retention. strong toffee and bananas - jack daniels-like bourbon bananas, wood - strong oak, demerara and treacle - some sweetness although not cloying, plain caramel, pepper. light to low carbonation, medium body - oily; sweet, woodsy and lightly tannic finish. definitely some weaknesses but still a tasty oaky caramel taffy candybar.
