A bit sweet, and I found the alcohol taste quite blatant. Still, it was delicious, but I wouldn’t pay $5 a bottle for it again.

BOTTLE 33 CL BB MAR-2017. Clear red-brown, lots of floaties, small beige head with lacing. Smells of dried dates, intense sugars, light boozy spicy. (My basement mold too). Similar taste, with good rich sweetness but never sticky, some woody bitterness and a just hint of alcohol heat. Very well tempered and smooth.

Piwo koloru ciemnej herbaty, piana średnia dość długo się utrzymuje. Aromat owoców, trochę rodzynek lekko perfumowany. W smaku morele rodzynki i inne owoce, podobnie jak w aromacie czuć posmak perfum(?)

Well well well... where to begin with this glorious fountain of wonder.

Me and Bungle were a bit apprehensive about such a strong malty brew, but Zippy lined up 3 glasses and said this will facking blow your minds lads.

Ooooh it was such a scrummy yummy beer, we took one sip each and took in the sweet malty tones, accompanied by a caramel/date aroma and sat back to enjoy. But pooooor Mr Geoffrey drank too many and I suppose this should be a warning; this is quite a strong beer boys and girls.

Now every time me, Zippy and the lads crack open a few bottles we are immediately transported back to that dream of a weekend in Bruges.

We never did find Mr Geoffrey though...

Kuparin värinen lasissa. Tuoksu banaaninen ja makea. Ehkä asteen liian makea. Maussa myös makeutta, mutta alun hapotus tasoittaa sitä. Mukana taatelia ja toffeeta. Kaiken kaikkiaan erittäin miellyttävä quadrupel.

Brilliantly balanced beer. Warming complex taste, but not heavy and thick like some Belgians. Strong ABV but still retains a refreshing light feel. Really excellent.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2017 A very nice beer indeed . Complex spicy and fruity flavours which help with a bitter /sweet aftertaste.

Pours hazy dark coppery, topped with medium sized head, tan color and semilasting. Yeasty nose with some noticeable spiciness. Taste similar. Starts with some spiciness, malty sweetness with yeasty feel, lots of dry fruits. Easy on the bittery part. Medium lasting aftertaste. Less sharp than some others of the kind. Warming alcohol, but nicely hidden actually.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2017 Dit bier is een genot. Na het inschenken verdwijnt de schuimkraag redelijk snel. Het zicht is mooi, lekker rood/bruin. De geur is zoet wat hints van banaan en vanille. De smaak is zoet, fruit en misschien ook wel wat kruidnagel. Het is in elk geval een heerlijk bier voor koude en regenachtige dagen. Absoluut een vaste gast in mijn koelkast als het kouder wordt. Echt een genot.
