txspartan (1063) - Berchem, BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2016
Oak, coffee and dark chocolate aromas. Head lasts a while. Bittersweet coffee flavours with a powdery texture. Some sourness.

obxdude10 (2392) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Very dark brown pour with a big tan head. The lacing was full and thick and stuck to the glass very nicely, especially as the beer warmed. The nose was full of toffee, caramel, rye, yeast and light cream. The body was full and thick as well. This quad definitely demands to be sipped. The flavors were fairly sweet with lots of yeast, rye, light cream, a light milk chocolate hint, caramel, very light but floral hops and some candi sugar.

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dark fruit and roasted malts.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque ruby/dark brown beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast and dark fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Amazing to see a dark Belgian beer, with a rather sweet character, with a hefty amount of roasted malts at the same time. Great appearance and palate as well, but the aroma could have been stronger.

Draft at Lizardville. Pours a muddy brown with small tan head. Aroma is biscuit, spices, caramel, toffee, Belgian yeasts. The taste is dark breads, caramel, toffee, with a hint of cloves and other spices. Not sweet, rather dry finish. Not a heavy, sticky quad. Not boozy. Very nicely done.

Delft 10-11-2015 Lelijk etiket, maar qua smaak redelijk goed. Donkere kleur met caramel gekleurd schuimkraag. Ruikt vrij neutraal maar heeft een hele zachte, volle smaak. Lichte chocolade/koffie smaak. Voor een quadruple vrij licht en zo smaakt hij ook. Na een half glas ben je alweer klaar met dit biertje, vanwege zijn vlakke geur en smaak. Hangt overal tussenin en blinkt niet echt uit qua aroma, smaak of geur.

MiP (16055) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle, 10%. Vinous aroma, bready with a hint of yeast and spicy hops. Cloudy light brown colour. Small stable tan head. The flavour is spicy, reminding me of spicy rum. Dark sugar notes, but not sweet. Late roasted notes. Vinous finish. Milk chocolate or perhaps Nesquick powder. High bitterness.

Bamsen78 (5617) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy darkish ruby / copper brown with airy but stable beige head. Clear aroma of malt, chocolate and coffee, with notes of yeast and alcohol and some dried fruit. Bitter, hoppy and slightly roasty flavour with sweetish notes of caramel malt and touches of dark chocolate, coffee and fruit. Bitterish, roasty aftertaste with coffeelike notes. Warming alcohol presence. A nice one although a trifle watery.

3.5
nuplastikk (6512) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2015
750ml. Big foamy off-white/beige head on top of an unfiltered burgundy brown body. Chalky subdued aroma. Fruity and rich, but doesn’t have the depth or mouthfeel of typical Belgian examples. Raisin, red fruit all the way. Sweet and sugary, not that impressive for a Belgian. OK.

3.3
alteregoo (1826) - Kalisz, POLAND - OCT 25, 2015
Piana obfita, niestety szybko opada, nieznacznie zdobiąc szkło. Barwa ciemno rubinowa, spora zawiesina drożdżowa wewnątrz trunku. Niezbyt intensywny aromat suszonych gruszek, daktyli, karmelu, brandy oraz lekko drażniący zapach piołunu, dzikiego chmielu, ziół. W smaku półwytrawne, mocno słodowe, ale nie słodkie, są ponownie suszone owoce, likier karmelowy, domowe wino z rodzynek, nieco melanoidyn. Goryczka piołunowo alkoholowa, średnia do niskiej, długa. Nagazowanie poniżej średniego, klujące w język. Półpełne, syropowe w odczuciu. Tylko poprawny Quadrupel, dość gęsty, deserowy, z wyraźnym rozgrzewającym alkoholem i zbyt delikatnym aromatem. Brak tu intensywniej zaznaczonych efektów pracy belgijskich drożdży.

3.4
kapusil (1563) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 25, 2015
0.33l bottle. Black body, light-brown head. Aroma of cocoa, coffee, cherries, spicy hops and booze. Taste of cherries, cocoa, floral hops, booze and beetroot (which is quite weird for me). Won’t be my favourite quad.
