Tåkete mørk brun med minimalt beige skum. Lukter svisker, trevirke, eik og vanilje. Fyldig. Lett søtlighet, tørket frukt, dadler, svisker og vanilje. Lite bitterhet. Kjenner alkoholvarmen. Fatlagringen er tydelig, eik og vaniljen er framtredende. Middels lang. Leighton (21075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Rene! Pours mostly clear amber-gold with a creamy, tan head. Big butterscotch aroma, berries, toast, plums. Medium to heavy sweet flavour, with rich bready malts, fruitcake, more plums, toffee, butterscotch, minimal alcohol notes. Medium to full bodied, lightly chewy, with fine carbonation. Lightly warming in the finish, with lots more ripe plum, brown bread, fruitcake, vanilla, butterscotch, ripe berries. Extremely drinkable for its heft. Almost no alcohol presence. Awesome stuff. tderoeck (9471) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2017

Heavy aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, wood, vanilla, red fruit and red wine.
Turbid/opaque red/dark brown beer with heavy yeast and with no/a slight beige head.
Heavy sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, wood, vanilla, red fruit and red wine.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Super sweet with loads of red fruit and even some wine shining through. The appearance misses a head, but looks great nonetheless.
Light brown with a red shine. No head. Sweet aroma, oak. Heavy body no carbonation. Taste is sweet. Werckmeister (3111) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 13, 2017

375 ml bottle from slowbeer.com.au. Pours hazy brown with absolutely no head. Aroma is boozy and some slight sweetness. No carbonation left. The base quad was a staple of mine for about 18 months and I always enjoyed it. The barrel-aging compliments it well and adds a nice dimension. Pretty good, but I was disappointed by the beer being totally flat. That seems to be the trend on the Dutch barrel-aged beers as De Molen and Emelisse are the same in that regard.
