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 (382) - 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

Interesting aromas and flavors of raspberry, red wine and oak. Belgian character came out in the end. Brown mahogany color with a fluid thickness and tart dry finish.

markducommun (1032) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Clear dark reddish-inflected mahogany, tan head that almost immediately disappeared. Oily look. Grape must, leather, molasses, deeply earthy, quite a bit of funk. More than moderately sour, sticky, oily sweetness. Heavier body, very little effervescence. Extremely long finish. Alcohol is reasonably muted. Very unique, grew on me throughout the course of the bottle. Very unbalanced.

Marduk (7173) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 7, 2015
375ml bottle @martjooboluts, thanks. Murky copper color. Medium size, pinky-brown head, stays. Milky, sharp raspberry, punch in the face of alcohol and sweet sugar in aroma. Sour raspberry, twiggy, acidic taste. Acidic mouthfeel. I have no idea what Im drinking.

JDBaker11058 (2061) - Maryland, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Appearance: muddy dark brown, with a thick and creamy tan head that shrinks quickly to a thick collar and thin cap. Aroma: huge aroma that changes as it warms; starts full of treacle, toffee, molasses, raisins, plums, and prunes; then it moves into sour territory with prominent balsamic and white vinegar notes over raspberry and stone fruit. Finish: aggressively tart and sour up front, with strong, woody balsamic and raspberry notes; theres an undertone of dark bitter chocolate and fruitcake long lasting tart and sour, drying with some rising woody notes. Notes: Wouldnt say I loved it, but Im so glad to have tried it. A complex and creative beer. Beerthday 2015.

375ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut!
Ugh, what a mess in the aroma, theres some raspberry, but its otherwise an sugary acidic mess. Taste not much better, sweet, sour, raspberry, lots of stuff totally not integrating with each other at all. But at least its not actually bad. This is prog-rock in the beer scene - sometimes it rocks, sometimes it sucks. This time, it sucks. The fruity berry sharpness is the best bit.
