Yeast and fruit aroma. Pours a very dark caramelly brown with a thick light brown head. Well balanced. Malty with some fruit undertones. Nice.

This is a really good beer that borders on being great. The yeast and dark fruit noted are super pleasant, but it just doesnt quite seal a five from me. Its almost there and its good, but its not quite there.

Dark brown pour. Aromas of raisin and plum same in the taste but with some yeast notes as well. Boozy finish. Two thumbs up

From Saveur Biere. In Grimbergen glass. Watching Los Soprano 6x04. Lighter and more drinkable than usual in the style. The dark fruits profile is there but lower than id like, although improves as it warms up

I was really looking forward to a great taste experience when I opened this bottle. Right from the start I realized that I was to be disappointed. The aroma was more solvent than anything else. Flavor had some dark malt roastiness but was overwhelmed by a stressed yeast phenolic that really thinned out the palate of this BSA. Ive had similar home brews with this fault. Unibroue, or rather Sapporo, needs to check their yeast bank or clean their equipment.

Pours a dark chestnut with a dark reddish tint. A khaki head dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is not overpowering but is yeasty with raisin, jam overtones - more sweet than yeast. Palate is lighter than I expected, with a very slight stickiness. Bubbles are small but not such to make it seem creamy. Taste is dough and yeast frosted with dark fruits - almost like a dark sticky bun if that makes any sense. There are hints of dark grains in the back ground but dark fruits are prominent, with a very very slight bitterness in the after-taste. Its all very well balanced - almost artificially so. Its kind of like someone was trying make the most middle of the fairway example of what a quadruple is, and once you understand this one, you can then venture into the others. I like this a lot, dont get me wrong this is a tremendous beer, but for whatever reason dont find it all that interesting.

Korcz (3133) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 24, 2017
Całkiem nudna Belgia, dużo kolendry, leciutkie owoce i karmel. Wodniste i nieco puste. Takie o.

Mesjasz (1487) - Lodz, POLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Bottlesharing w Piwotece. W aromacie sporo ciemnych owocw i kolendry. Smak słodki, kolendra dominuje, trochę brakuje ciała.

Ronritter (595) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle pours dark brown with an off-white head. Ripe dark fruity sweetness, hints of spice and clove in aroma. Some roasted malts and brown sugary notes later on. Sweet fruityness and plums in taste.
