Cristobal37 (870) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 11, 2016
Boozy brown sugar and spicy aroma. Heavy beer not dissimilar to Gulden Draak (perhaps not as good though). Sadly tons of sediment everywhere. Ruby brown color. Some medicinal herbs in the finish. Not my favorite, but certainly nothing wrong with it.

Cloudy amber color. I was pouring it so carefully but it was impossible not to get small particules of a sediment floating there. Small off white head. Very warm aroma of a bread, plum brandy, caramel, herbs, blackberry, raisins and apricot. Very well balanced taste, whith sweet flavor slightly standing out. Medium bodied, average carbonated with oily and thick palate. Bit spicy. Long dry finish which is warming a throat nicely. Tasty beer.

En bouche on a la mme attaque sur la prune et le pruneau, continuit sur le sucre candy avec un ct trs rond limite moelleux. Bire avec un final grill et caramlis pas mal du tout !

bonkiedeaap (675) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle from dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is ruby red colored and has a large cream colored head, with livingly CO2. In the aroma tones of figs, licorice and dark fruits. The aroma is full and smells like drop and a light fruitiness of cherries. The taste is full and well balanced with tones of drop, honey and that gives it a soft taste. The high level of Co2 gives this beer its freshness and after a wile a light fruitiness of raspberries is noticable. The finish is long and very complex, with nice warming alcohol.

flying_pig (1464) - SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2016
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe (3.39):
A very nice Quad from Urthel & one that was quite an easy beer to drink despite the fact it came in at over 11% abv. The balance of the beer was a good one with the dark fruits working well with the caramel sweetness & the warming alcohol touches were mainly right at the end, although it was easy to tell it was a strong beer from the start; an excellent beer & on that surprisingly was even better than the bottle of Hop-It I tried from the same brewery back in 2014.
