sonotono (266) - torino, ITALY - DEC 7, 2015
Molto scura con riflessi rossastri, schiuma abbondante e marroncina chiara. Profumo di caramello, molto fruttato, fichi, frutta rossa, leggero odore di luppoli erbacei. Sapore dolce, molto fruttato, caramellato, molto dolce ma non stucchevole. Lalcool scalda ma nello stesso tempo ben amalgamato nellinsieme. Centrata.

katrinaez (1664) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2015
Light cherry and bourbon scent. Dark blood red brown color. Very mild on the palate and taste. Too easy for a quad and 10%. I like it myself to drink, but cant rate too high as it doesnt seem to follow what it should classify as. Tap

Bottle as a birthday gift from Pix. Cheers! Pours a deep amber / mahogany colour with a frothy cream head. Interesting aroma of stewed fruits and caramel. The taste is spicy with caramel, liquorice, bread and cloves. The alcohol is fairly evident and gives a pleasant warmth to it. Very nice.

anstei (1699) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 6, 2015
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. A rather atypical Quad compared to the Holy Trinity. Sweet and full of berries, but definitely weaker as I would have expected from 10% ABV quad.

Aroma of spicy dark fruit, plums, raisin, candi sugar, spicy malt and caramel. Flavor is very nice with much of the same as the aroma. Yeasty notes. Well crafted, balanced quad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une Trappiste? Non. Mais presque, les choses surprenantes, elle ptille agrablement et longuement en bouche, l alcool laisse se dvelopper lentement les armes malts de cacao, cuir, prunes confites. Un tic trop sucr je trouve, mais on est dans ligne des bires trappistes. Mis 7 en got car elle n offre rien de surprenant. Mme si elle est trs bien faite et btie.

Bottle split two ways. Pours murky dark brown with a huge tan head. Notes of honey, syrup, dark malts, raisins, figs, dates, caramel with some light yeast notes.

Another tasty, unique beer from Mikkeller. Pours a deep muddy red with a tan head. Smells of earthiness, herbs, juniper and lemon. Taste is strong and sweet, with more earthiness and herbiness with some lemon in the finish. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
