Bottle at Angry Chair. Pours a thick orange with small white head. The aroma is strong honey and booze. Thick mouthfeel with strong honey, booze and nice sweet finish. Very impressive. jcwattsrugger (12471) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2015

Bottle at James’ house for the End of History tasting. Pours a clear brown with some yeasty bits, but I got the end of the bottle. Vinegar and wood, caramel. Sweet and sticky, big and boozy. Lots of warm alcohol, chewy caramel. Syrup and caramel, more warm boozy alcohol. Smooth in spite of the alcohol. Desverger (11878) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2014
Sample from Bottle - amber pour with almost no head. Sweet malty aroma and taste with sweet caramel malts, toffee, fudge, sweet malty finish. CloakedDagger (2575) - - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle 75 cl. Took like 15 min. to get through the wax! Jesus fucking Christ! Surprisingly subtle aroma, perhaps a little pine. Rich, sweet body - very low in carbonation. Complex caramel aromas combined with loads of dark, dried fruit. Very warming alcohol finish but never really boozy. A pleasant surprise. 081114

Really god. Smells of raisins and syrup. The taste is thick and sweet, comparable of an aged port wine. Only has 5 cl but it was enough. The taste lasts for a long time. Also hade the opportunity to talk to the brewer.

Sampled at the End of History tasting. Aroma is brown sugar, molasses, and chocolate. Pours sludgy black and brown with tons of oily film and no head. Taste is super sweet with molasses, dark chocolate, and brown sugar. Thick coating mouthfeel but no real alcohol burn. Nice beer flavored syrup, really. Jow (3958) - New York, USA - SEP 7, 2014

Eisbock-processed version of Quadrupel X, leading to an astonishing alcohol strength of 25% ABV and produced only in extremely limited quantities (216 bottles, I was told), sold at 100 EUR per bottle, but the gainings are used for charity, apparently. Despite the massive alcohol content, it still carried a quite firm, off-white head over a hazy deep amber hue. Very powerful, if not overpowering, complexely perfumed aroma of amaretto and marzipan, caramel candy, honey and orange liqueur. Very sweet, orange- and almond-like taste, near to syrupy mouthfeel, cloying, liqueurish, very complex and long-lasting, inevitably very alcohol and ending in a dry and long, liqueur-like alcohol warmth. Maybe a bit too strong for what it can bear, but very fascinating nonetheless. A kind of beer liqueur, one could argue, and more a super-strong barley wine than a true quadrupel to me.
