Clear ruby red beer, small sediment floating around under a huge fluggy yellow beige head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: sweet, caramel, bit nutty, milk chocolate, bit earthy. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: lots of chocolate, bit sugary, some mocha, cocoa powder, sweet touch, citrus, pretty bitter as well. Aftertaste: dark chocolate, fruity, dried fruits, little soapy, some citrus, quite some banana.
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Bert’s Bierhuis. Light red brown with a beige head. Spicy aroma with lots of molasses and caramel. Taste is not as sweet as expected, quite bitter with chocolate notes in the finish. Aftertaste is also quite bitter and lasting. Great quadrupel! langeveld12 (587) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2012
Pours a large light brown rocky head that mostly diminishes. Lacing is good. Body is clar, sparkling with red brown hue. Aroma contains roasted malts, lemon hops, light dough from yeasts, grape and raisin, brown sugar, licorice and alcohol. Flavor starts off light acidic with lemon or citrus from hops, to be quickly followed by moderate sweetnes and a roasted taste from burnt malts and fruits like raisin and grape. Finish is dry and light bitter, a bit astringent and there's some taste of alcohol, which is quite well hidden. Palate is light to medium, a bit watery in texture and with lively carbonation. A little less sweetness would make it more balanced. Still, very good.

Aroma is kruidig, rozijnen en donker fruit. Smaak is krenten, kruidig, peperig en zoutig, maar body is verassend licht. Afdronk is met roggebrood, die inderdaad droog is. Licht rokerig bitter in de nasmaak. Kraag zakt snel. Het bier groeit niet tijdens drinken. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2012
