3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
09.01.13. Bottle. Large, light brown foam. Very dark, clear amber color. Aroma of some coffee and caramel, chocolate, buttery, sweet, maybe some cinnamon. Overall nice aroma. Taste is bitter, some coffee, alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel, pretty long bitter aftertaste.
Overall, nice aroma but otherwise average. I was told this is noticeably different from the original beer the competition winner submitted and won with.

Quadrupel molto buona, con sentori classici dello stile: caramello, leggero liquoroso, frutta secca, prugna... In più finisce con un leggero amarognolo che secondo me stona un po'.

The smell of chocolate, malty, a little bit sweet. The small white creamy head has a normal duration, the body is dark red to brown. A strong malty taste, a lot of chocolate. The body is medium strong, creamy and lively with a lot of carbonation.

Bottle. Very hazy/cloudy dark brown with a lively tan head that reduces to a thick nouget and leaves creamy lace. Aroma has lots of chocolate and dark fruits with alcoholic fumes. The palate delivers nice complexity, with the chocolate taking a back seat to dates and raisins, pumpernickel, spices, and cork. The finish is dry. The booziness is very restrained on the palate, making this an approachable and very drinkable quad. Really delicious.

Bottled 330ml. -Courtesy of and shared with Marko, thanks. Red/brown coloured, big creamy beige head, spices and alcohol in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel, fruity and yeasty with notes of brown sugar and alcohol. Alcohol quite noticable and pretty strong notes of pear. Too sweet overall.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Ludo, shared with ogivlado. Misty brown-amber dark body with a lasting off white head. The aroma mixes standard Belgian maltiness with pear esters and alcohol that sometimes unfortunately overtakes the otherwise nice fruity malt-ester combo. Nice taste, lighter and more drinkable than expected despite a solid sweetness. Pear esters rule the show here, no doubt about that, brown sugar too, but not too sweet. Definitely a very good beer but juuuust slightly away from true greatness.

Drank with Rik in "Kanguruh" in Vienna 10-2-2017. This quadruple has mainly a malty taste. Not so sweet. Also alcohol. But the taste is comprehensive, which makes this a decent beer.

Cerveza navideña con toques lupulados, se esperaba algo más dulce, no está mal, pero no repetiría.
