UPDATED: NOV 17, 2017 0.33 l bottle shared with VIŠNJA666. Dark amber to deep ruby red. Diminishing off-white head. Dried fruits and jam. Sweet. Medium body, light finish. Nice, but not impressive. lAlpedHuez (13) - Brookville Hollow, New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2017
Outstanding find in the unlikeliest of places -- a tiny market in Milford NJ (on the Delaware River, pop. 1,189). Wow. So nice I kept the bottle as a memento.
Full bodied for sure. Once bottled it undergoes a secondary refermentation that "creates a living ale that can be aged and evolves over time".
One nice sidelight -- evidently it's brewed in the tiny medieval city of Bruges which is circled by a canal that must be 500 years old. No cars allowed -- you park nearby and hoof in. A must see.
Bottom line: do the Belgians know how to brew great ales or what? This quadruple has a alcohol content of 11%, but you wouldn't know it. Perfect at 55 degrees or so.

It pours very dark brown with frothy tan head. There are nice retention and lacing.
Smell is saying this is a Belgian quad! Plum, caramel, toasted bready malt and and spices.
Very complex taste of dark fruits, molasses, wood and peppery phenols. Sticky texture. Lively on the palate, very well carbonation. Warming and dry finish. Flawless quadrupel; delicious, mild and warmer. strap (963) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2017
dark with medium head. boozy and sweet aroma with cherry smell. complex flavor, dark fruits slightly sour. dry finish. damn good. CiderScout3 (11) - - NOV 3, 2017
