Full-bodied, very sweet yet balanced by a dry finish. A bit lacking in aroma maybe but full tasting and warming. Take your time with this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Pours clear dark amber with a head that promises a sticky texture. Strong malts are present in the aroma, but not as fruity or harmonic as other quads. Heavy and sticky, but as others pointed out, unusual bitterness in the back of the tongue. Sweetness dominates everywhere else though, also on the palate. There it feels more like a barley wine though. Makes for an experiment worth trying, but when it comes to beers of this weight, I prefer others.

Big and harsh, and definitely not a quad... And can’t really be reviewed as such. As an American barleywine, this is a good effort, but it’s a bit rough around the edges for me.

Bottle, pours brown with an off white head. Aroma: nuts, brown sugar, dried figs, cinnamon, vanilla. Taste follow with more dark fruit, citrus hop, red fruit, nut meg. Bittersweet, soft and creamy, light boozy notes. Quad meets american barley wine and I like it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Solid, sweetish quadrupel with a balancing hoppy kick. Not much in way of Belgian-style esters.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
hazy (slightly reddish-)brown colour, half inc of dense yellowish-beige-ish off-white head; aroma of caramel, herbal notes, orange zest, some grapefruit and walnut biscuit; taste of syrupy sweetness, herbal notes, marmalade, grapefruit and hoppy bitterness...well, I’m not convinced that it is a quadrupel and not an American-style barley wine, but I’m definitely convinced that it is a good beer
