Bottle at Kulminator, Antwerp. Deep amber beer with a small white head. Woody, dark dried fruits, malty aroma. Wounderful sweetness, and malty fruity flavour. I truley love this kind of beer :-) beerbastard (844) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Reddish brown pour with legs. Caramel rasin prune mix of aromas. Big flavors of sweet molasses dark fruits and candi sugar. Very rich with a nice smooth balance. Very little carbonation, not much barrel flavors and a high price. But its very good. dcschiller (2211) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2011
(375ml bottle from Papago). Pours a hazy, cloudy dark amber/garnet color with tan head. Aroma has caramel, vinous notes and wood. Taste is sweet with more ripe grapes and syrup. Full bodied with a slick texture and wine-line finish with a touch of alcohol. Really nice. zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2011

Bottle at Monks. Darker and smoother than the regular quad. Heady aroma as well. When first poured looked surprisingly clear though there ended up being a fair amount of sediment in the second half of the bottle. Dark caramel raisins. Very rich but a barrel aged ruby added to the normal vanilla malt bomb. This version is more refined. stouby (4859) - Holbæk, DENMARK - APR 16, 2014
Bottle at Carsten. Clear reddish with some sediments. Aroma heavy malty (dark fruit, woody, vanilla), light acidic. Flavor medium to heavy sweet, fruity, acidic, barrel). Full body, soft and smooth, fantastic.

Draft - Vintage 2011 - Prunes, date and brown sugars. Cloudy amber with a thin head. Brown sugar, oak and dark fruit. These are sublime. JorisPPattyn (10118) - BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2011
Small dirty-cream head over clear copper-amber beer. Superb nose as from old, sweet wine, very vinous, vanilla. Sweet, brandy, vanilla, vanillabeans, coffeemilk, alcohol-preserved fruit, winecasks. Very complex, yet balanced flavourprofile. Better carbonated than most such ales, slick, alcoholwarming. Spectacular nose. Beer, however, is more sweet than suspected.
