33cl Bottle from Secret Sint, cheers! Deep dark reddish brown colour, beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, brown sugar, light spicy, plums, some currants. Flavour is sweet, malty, dark fruits, brown sugar, hint of spice, more sugar, decent bitter finish with some alcohol. Medium-bodied, a little fizzy. Nice, but lacks a bit of depth to be really great.

09 bottle shared by Kermis, thanks man. Pours red brown with medium head and lacing. Notes of prune, grape juice, wet wood, oak, malt, and other darker fruits. Nice balance with a good bit of complexity. Smells a lot older than it is. Very nice brew. kermis (14958) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2013
2009 vintage bottle shared. Pours cloudy brown with a small tan head. With the age beer has developed towards the porty side of age, with a dank mouldy cellar aspect, overripe dark fruit and caramel. Flavour is light heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Zer0 (1227) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2013

Mooie donkere roodbruine kleur met een volle kraag. Fruitige friszoete geur. Smaakt lekker vol, rood fruit met een bittere nadronk.

Bottle @ Croydonia. The pour’s amber with a small head. The nose is earthy spices. Notes of bourbon, wood, honey, vanilla. the taste is toffee apple. Berry compote. Fruit leather. Sticky, hot finish. Full body, fine carbonation. Lovely, big. Vells (1980) - Rīga, LATVIA - SEP 29, 2013
Quite intense roasted malts.. was surprised to taste that in quad, but not bad. Caramel, bit yeasty, nice fruitiness, but again - less intense than I expect from quad. Sweet, bit dry.
Very interesting and enjoyable brew zenkis (1079) - Ogre, LATVIA - SEP 27, 2013

Pours deep copper reddish with frothy beige creamy top, light lasing. Aroma basically sweet malty-fruity-yeasty, light roast, min caramel with sensible alcohol touch. Flavor almost the same except roasted malt bitter touch, yeast profile of course in not minor partner, sweet and caramel-candy. For Quad it’s light dry finish with average lasting, average intense aftertaste. Seems a bit too cognac or brandy alike. I prefer more fruity brews of this style.
Poured reddish brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma slightly phenolic, dark fruit, molasses and some malt. Medium body, moderate carbonation, flavour of sweet berries with a bitter sweet finish. berntholer (1619) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2013
light beige yelllow head that disappears fast with some lacing. cola colour. aroma is sweet, candy sugar, yeast, dried dark fruits. taste is very boozy with a liquorice, bitter aftertaste. not a bad quad but the mouthfeel is rather thin, a lot of carbonation and medium/thin body. bottle 33 cl / bbf 2-2018
