Bottle at Craftheads. Yum. Aroma is porridge, sweetness, quad stuff, sweet maltiness, bit of fruit, no sign of the spice. Taste is great. Dubbel like beefiness, sweet, maybe a touch of spice at the end. Raisins. Good stuff. Classic quad with a spicy finish. Boozy at the end too.

Bottle. Pours deep dark brown,with a red hue, and a nice creamy layer of mocha head. Aroma is really nice roasted malts with chocolate, bread and dark fruits, as well as wood, leather and good, hot notes of chili. All very mellow, and nicely balanced. Creamy body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet roasted malts with cocoa and bread, hot peppery chili, and dark fruits, raisins and berries, leather, wood and liquorice. Lingering sweet, hot finish. wiosna (591) - - SEP 27, 2014
0,33 pullo@ Vihreä Haltijatar. Samea, kermaisen tummanruskea. Tuoksussa mallasta, luumua, taateleita, rusinoita, hyvin tummaa, lähes palanutta kinuskia. Maussa paahteista mallasta, alkoholia, hieman tummaa suklaata, tummaa ylikypsää marjaa. Kermainen tuntuma, sopivan kevyt samalla. Beerhammaren (1792) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2014
.375l bottle @ Haltiatar
Pours deep dark red with low off-white head. Aroma is hops, dark malts, syrup, hops and plums. Some dark bread.
Flavor is alcohol, dark malts, some burned notes, dark fruits, plums, bitter hops and coffee. Swell! RasmusOtt (2740) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2014
Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma of dates, raisins, figs, milky chocolate, spices, butter scotch, ripe plums and syrup. You kinda know what this beer is about when you stick your nose into it. Taste has those same sweet notes with all the ripe fruits and the more syrupy notes behind. Also has some heat in the end. Kinda nice but maybe too much of a sipper due to the extremely sweetness - which gets a bit one-sided in the long run.
Vestergaard (2089) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2014
37,5cl bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black with a tiny, brown head. Aroma has huge, dried fruity notes. Lots and lots of raisins, prunes, dates, figs and so on. Some alcohol, caramel malts and some milky chocolate here as well. Taste has dark roast, and corresponding bitterness, coffee, lots of "milka" chocolate, port wine, syrup, caramel and again lots of these dark, dried, overripe fruits. A bit of molasses as well. Medium-low carbonation and medium-full body. Fine beer, but gets exhausting in bigger amounts. Kavu (4730) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2014
12.7 fl.oz bottle @ Vihreä Haltiatar. Pours deep ruby with a low tan head. Aroma is malts, dark fruits, alcohol and tamarind. Flavor is sweet malts, dark fruits, tamarind, chili, cinnamon, alcohol and hops. Very nice! slowrunner77 (11930) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 10, 2014
"#4500! Cin and peppers expected, tamarind was not. Totally cool, unique, and decadent unexpected treat. I like the base beer and this version was deeelicious. Low heat, all kinds of complexity, and sweetness..." LoFi (1714) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2014

Full-bodied. Vignale (3785) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2014
Flaska från SB. Drygt ett år gammal. En relativt stiltypisk belgisk quad. som kryddats upp med fingertoppskänsla. Aningen chili, kanel, citrusskal förutom en lätt madeiratouch med russin och annan torkad frukt. Småbubblig munkänsla, relativt söt, alkoholvärme och en lätt efterbeska. Riktigt trevlig med lite julkänsla så här mitt i sommaren.
