Idiosynkrasie (7096) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2016
375ml bottle. Almost black colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting and lacing, beige head. Slightly vinous, tart-ish and earthy, raspberry aroma, a touch of marmite. Taste is slightly tart, fruity, bitter, notes of marmite, hints of dashi, some raspberry, minimally oaky, tannic, red wine overtones.

Habanero (4491) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2016
Bottled. Pours hazy deep brown with a small beige head. Aroma of raspberry, funky notes, spice, vanilla and wood. Sweet flavor that ends up being dry and tart with some alcohol. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Quad. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Deep mahogany with a tan head. The aroma blooms out of the bottle the moment you open it. Upon pouring it, a rich and unusual cocktail pervades the air. An overwhelming combination of dried fruits: cranberries, figs, raisins, prunes and raspberries. Strong cassis syrup. A distinct Panettone, fruit cake aroma, filled with honey, vanilla, doughy notes, and lots of spices, especially clove and anise. Quite a remarkable aroma. The first sip took me by surprise. Dryer than I expected from the almost cloyingly, glazed sweetness of the smell. A burst of raspberry jelly explodes on the tip of the tongue while bitter coffee and chocolate provide sharp contrast. As it progresses on the tongue, a syrupy, malty sweetness emerges. Maple syrup, molasses, but also a bready, yeasty, slightly salty vegemite sharpness comes through. I am not sure what to make of the flavor. It certainly has complexity and intriguing qualities, but it feels like less than the sum of its parts. Monks Brew finishes on a long dry aftertaste with a bit of funky sourness and that salty bread-like character. A beer that challenges your tastebuds and defies categorization.

Samuel214 (879) - SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2016
Flaska frn Beergium. Lyxl p uppstndelsedagen. Mrkrd grumlig vtska med tunn vitrosa skumkrona. Brig doft av hallon, ltt syrlig, krsbrssylt, vinst. Halvstor kropp, ngot torr. Inledande syrlig smak med besk och bitter avslutning. Fortfarande en del krsbrssylt. Lite spretig och mycket av varje. Lite vl bittra toner som tar verhanden, hade grna ftt ge mer utrymme t friskheten och syrligheten frn hallonen och brettjsten. Vinlagringen mrks av, men hade grna ftt ta mer plats den med. Mja, ingen hjdare, men kul nd!

Bottle. Label says it fermented with brett. Burgundy color. Great aroma of raspberry, mild funk, wine, oak and vanilla. Rich taste of mildly sour raspberry, tannines, oak, funk, subtle horseblanket, mild vanilla and a long fruity finish. Delicious.

Zeer donker bier met kleine schuimkraag. Mooie smaak van druiven en de wijn op de achtergrond.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Pours a dark mahogany brown with fluffy tan head. Aromas of raspberry, chocolate, and a touch of barrel funk. Flavors of raspberry, chocolate tootsie roll, and some good sour barrel. This one poured chunky.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2015
375ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Deep brown-red in colour with a thin tan head, light lacing. The aroma is of lots of fresh raspberries, red wine, dark fruits, light malt. The flavour is highly sweet, lots of raspberries, syrupy, lots of wine, woody, light chocolate malts. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, sweet with lots of raspberries. A very interesting beer. Loses all characteristics of a Quad from the barrel and addition of the raspberries. Port sweetness.

Batavi (378) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2015
Tijdens bierproeverij, uitgeschonken in Struise BD degusteerglaasje. Bruin bier met roodachtige gloed en met crème kleurige schuimkraag. Aroma is behoorlijk zurig en fruitig, anders dan verwacht. Met tonen van frambozen, eikenhout, karamel en witte wijn. Het smaakpallet is vrij zuur en medium complex met tonen van: karamel, eikenhout, veel zurige wijntonen, vooral witte wijn. Vrij droge houtige afdronk. Wederom een interessant bier van Mikkeller. Voor herhaling vatbaar wat mij betreft. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
