3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Older bottle, not sure how old but it’s gathered some dust over the years. Really nice mahogany copper color. Age has hurt the head potential here. Rich malty nose, some dark fruit and slight alcohol present. Alcohol burn up front is distracting as is prickly carbonation. Malt flavor and body are big here but I’m still struggling with. Tobacco, cocoa flavors, a bit yeasty/bready flavor round things out a bit. I feel the handling of this bottle (sub optimal) has lead to some deficiencies. I’d certainly welcome the opportunity to try this again as this is no fly by the night brewery.
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2017 Nice aroma of candy, nuts, dried fruits, figs and raisins. Light and full bodied, taste follows the nose. A bit of alcohol vapors, nicely spiced and sweet. Nice and cozy. ayalaa28 (1) - - NOV 14, 2017 does not count

Aromă dulce-acrișoară, cu multe pomușoare negre ușor acre și puțin fermentate, malț, dulceață de fructe negre, puțină caramelă.
Gust ușor, bine carbogazat, specific acrișor și pișcător, puțină dulceață de fructe negre, malț caramelizat, puține condimente, ceva drojdii.
Foarte bună, fără urmă de alcool (10% declarați) în gust sau aromă. Mariox (337) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 30, 2017
Fajny aromat ciemnych owoców takich świątecznych, karmelu i przypraw korzennych, ale bardzo niewiele. Estry dobrze się komponują wśród delikatnych fenolowych nut. wysycenie i alkohol nie wychodzą na pierwszy plan. Smithld1 (323) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2017
Bottle. Interesting. Tastes better than it smells. Lingering aftertaste. Decent booze hit with Christmas fruits. The carbonation makes it less than smooth. It's ok. higgsbison (266) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2017
November 2016. I am writing this the day after. I quite enjoyed it, quad like. Strong notes of fig. Prominent Belgium yeast. Effervescent.
I have had this a number of times since. Probably my favorite quad after Rochefort 10

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Tiefes Braun mit viel Schaum im Glas. Im Antrunk nicht doll, das Weihnachtliche kommt spät. Wo bleibt der viele Alkohol?
