MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2010
This beer smells very lively. Lots of stong malt, fig, spice, earthy notes at first. After a while it smells very doughy, with some fresh alcohol and candied sugar notes. Flavor is just superb in its smoothness. It has the flavor and delicacy of a some fresh salad greens. It really reminds me of biting into some very clean and fresh dark greens. The palate is simply something to take a vacation into. It just wraps the mouth in this softness that rivals a milk chocolate mousse.

Flesje van Slijterij Teeuwen gelabeld als Monkss brew. Donker bruinrode kleur, mooie kraag. Ruikt niet erg sterk, mout, wat droppigs. Smaakt idem, niet veel body, vrij vlak. Snap niet waarom dit bier zon hoge ratings krijgt.

Guruhso (491) - Grindsted, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown with white head. Yeasty. Aroma of toasted, caramel, dark fruit, overriped fruit and fruity-esters from the yeast. Light spicy herbal hop-bite. Mainly sweet. Good alcoholic warmth. Heavy and sticky. I get the trappist-association. A good one...

Strong malt flavour, dark fruit, brown sugar, treacle, alcohol on the finish. Medium carbonation, good mouthfeel, slightly sticky. Exactly what Id expect from a Quad.

Creamy beige head stayed well on a very dark brown active body. Chocolate, rum, plum, brown sugar aroma - smells fantastic! Big mouth feel, creamy on the palate & a slight tang on the back. Dark fruits, brown sugar, plum, raisin, slightly boozy & very slightly bitter back.
