Flaska p rebro l & Whisky Festival. Vintage 2014. Fina toner av torkad frukt, ltt syrliga rgtoner, lite pplen, syrliga krnor frn stenfrukt, strv. Mycket ekfatskaraktr frn lagringen som lyckas hlla tillbaka den annars vldigt potenta grund-quaden. Lite boozig fortfarande. ven en ltt rgsyra.

SIBF 2016, Seattle. Vintage 2013. Thick off-white cream. Rich, opaque mahogany. Touch of tobacco and smoke, quite dry on aroma. Smooth cream, very deep, prune and dark fruit sweetness. Dry/tart undercuts the sweet fruit. A little leather. A bit hollow. Coating sweet, alc tart. Very nice.

FatPhil (15373) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 19, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2016 750ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut! Vintage 2014
Cidery aroma, lambicky even. Deep red, small but persistent tan head. Big bold malty taste, but wait - this is not a big bold malty beer, this is bright and light, almost uplifting. Finish is light and fruity. Better than the boozy base beer. (Further notes: Very drinkable. Oak isnt overpowering - it works very well. Whatever the bugs in the wood were doing, it has worked very well. The beer has some subtleties not reflected in the review, so well need to drink t again. Anna)

suurjuust (3256) - ESTONIA - NOV 19, 2016
Bottle shared by Mart, thanks! Deep red beer, small tan head. Nose is woody, some sweetness, berry acidity, oaky notes. Flavor is sweet, malty, acidity, oaky vanilla, molasses, berries. Sugary finish with more vanilla and berry notes. Like a cross between a quad and a lambic, not bad at all.

stevoj (4606) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 18, 2016
Draft at BitterCreek.surprisingly light for a quad, both in taste and body. Nice heady aroma, kind of chocolaty. Kind of light on flavor. Kind of disappointing.

nearbeer (5184) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 13, 2016
750 ml, 2012 vintage. Pours deep mahogany with a thin, lasting film of cream. Nose of raisin, plum, vanilla and brown sugar. Flavors of raisin, cherry, brown sugar, vanilla, whiskey and a touch of earthy dried leaf. Amazingly, the finish comes in complete balance with some light touches of tobacco, molasses and oak. Medium-plus body has medium-high fizz that probably is necessary in this one. Dangerously balanced for such a big dessert beer, and only a faint touch of the 11% peeks through.

Bottle; pours dark brown with a thin ring of beige foam around the edge of the glass; aroma of dark fruits, molasses, vanilla, caramel, with hints of wood and alcohol; taste is more sweet than bitter with dark fruits, caramel, molasses, and a hint of vanilla; finish slightly bitter with some alcohol warming; very nice

2014-es verzi. A Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel karaktere mg elevenen l bennem, legalbbis az ital kortyolgatsa kzben gy reztem, van nmi viszonytsi alapom a korbbi emlkeim alapjn. Az mr az első percek sorn nyilvnvalv vlik, hogy a hordrlels hatsa nem mlik el nyomtalanul, a vrsboros karakter igen erőteljesen munklkodik a főzetben. A mlybarna, gesztenye testre termszetesen krmes, elefntcsont hab telepszik, medvecukros, mgis fanyar, "sour brown"-szerű illatai meglepő intenzitssal bukkanak elő alla. Egy valamireval borsznob semmi esetre sem menne el sz nlkl a tanninok jtka mellett, jmagam is csatlakoznk hozzjuk: a vrsboros, fekete bogys gymlcss, szrtott vadvirgos, csillagnizsos, telt s savas jegyek igen komplex zlmnyt nyjtanak, a fs hangulatok rettsget klcsnznek a quadrupelnek, az rlels nagyot mlyt a szerkezeten, m furcsa mdon valahogy ki is knnyti azt. Slytalannak persze botrny lenne nevezni a karaktert, mint ahogy nyilvnval mdon egyltaln nem is az, mindenesetre egy rnyalattal teltebb jelleget mg ppen elviselne a tkletessg benyomshoz. Ez persze mr csak kekeckeds, aminek legfeljebb egy ilyen kaliberű italnl lehet helye, a legtbb főzde termszetesen csak lmodhat az ilyen alkotsokrl.

ciocanelu (1933) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 3, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Brown color with tan head. Aroma is really complex with caramel, dark fruits like cherries and red berries, a slight fermented not and also oak barrel. Taste starts with sweet fruits and brown sugar, gets slightly tart and fruity in the middle and finishes with some slightly bitter burnt sugar and wood notes. Medium to full bodied with smooth mouthfeel. Really good quad with complex taste and nice barrel characteristics.
