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.

375ml corked bottle. Rich chocolate aroma with notes of cinnamon and dark fruit. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head and some lacing. Starts with dark chocolate as well as dark fruit, mostly raisin, flavors. Finishes fairly smooth with notes of cinnamon as well as a bit of booze that lingers with the chocolate on the palate. Rich, complex beer. Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2016
0.375l corked bottle. Quite a big lively head on this one, kinda nut brown in color and fading rapidly. This on top of a deep dark almost ruby brown body. Smells nice this! Lots of dark near burned sweet caramel with dark candied sugar, traces of leather and dark blue ripe plums. Smells really nice! Tastes quite nice also. It has that gunpowder/licorice salty touch that I quite enjoy. Feels light oily in the mouth with a above average carbonation level. Dark malty and a little roasted in the taste. It has a little bit of spicy plums going on here also and it’s leaving a really gentle soft buy present burn right on the tip of the tongue. Have to admit that this is quite a tasty one. I know I can so I will get another couple of bottles of this one before it’s gone. Nice! 04.12.2013 dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 19, 2012
375ml bottle. Pours near black with an espresso head. Really looks more like a stout. The aroma is more quad-like though as raisins, candied sugar and other dried, dark fruits emerge. Taste is also like a quad with sweet raisins, dried figs and prunes. The cinammon, tamarind and chilis are there, but they are subtle and not overpowering. Actually, this is pretty nice. Alcohol is extremely well hidden in the flavor. No burn; only pleasant warmth in the throat and chest as it goes down. I would certainly look to pick up a couple more of these to enjoy before the world ends. tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2012

Appearance - Deep red, big toffee head
Aroma - Yeast, raisins, cinnamon, wet grass
Taste - Yeast, dark fruits, cinnamon, spicy, alcohol
This beer just got better and better as it warmed up. Incredibly fruity for a quad, and the cinnamon aided the alcohol finish quite nicely. I got to try this one thanks to the one and only OmegaX - thanks!!!
Bonus bottle share thanks Aaron. This was a great surprise pours dark brown with creamy light brown head with nice lacing along the glass. Smells of bread and cloves nice malty smell. Definitely taste the clove, raisin, plum and hints of chocolate. Overall this is a very good beer that has a hint of warming that is excellent for enjoying on the couch on a cold day. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Tap @ Lost Abbey... Poured dark, near black with a thin head. A little bit of a mole’ thing going on here. Spice and sweetness and hint of chile pepper to keep it interesting. Toasted and roasted notes, and some sweetness. Had the spices, but balanced and not really burning or anything. RawKuz (60) - NORWAY - MAR 11, 2013
