Truly atrocious. I couldnt tell what flavors were present because I was overwhelmed by an ever-present cheap liquor taste.

750, corked and baled. Deep grainy ebony brown under a thick, surging, moussy tan head. Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. Settles to a nice creamy layer of foam with decent sheets of lace coming down. Nice brown-bread-y nose with a bit of fig in there. Bodys on the high side of medium, soft gently fizzy carb. Figs, dates, brown bread, and treacle on the mid-palate. Delicious. Little vodka bite at the end, falling into a gently herbal hop cling of a finish. Really nice stuff. If they hid the booze better and boosted the complexity of the nose and the mid-palate, this would be a world-beating beer.

BelgiskOlklub (1066) - Viby J, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2008
Bottle 33 cl. Average size rocky white head thats mostly disappearing. Clear sparkling body and amber color. Good lacing. Fruity aroma of caramel, light hoppy and heavy alcohol. It has a medium body, sticky and alcoholic. The finish is metallic and slightly bitter. The flavor is heavy sweet and only lightly hoppy. A good beer - but its one dimensional.

8th Big Beers, Belgians, and Barleywines. Pours clear orange with an average, fizzy, off-white head, lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, cookie, meal), average hops (flowers, grass), heavy yeast (horse blanket, barnyard, earth) with notes of heavy alcohol, banana, and honey. Full bodied, gritty texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness.

A copper pour with thick head that quickly dissipates- smell is fruity and alcohol is hardly palatable. bit of bite, but nothing compared to the doubles or triples- much smoother. This is the first quadrupel ive had, and impressed.

robforbes (2205) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2008
pour is a clear copper, medium thick off-white head, above average carbonation, good lacing. smell is fruity (pineapple, pear), alcohol is there, a bit of spice, sweetness. taste is thick, alcohol, syrup, candy sweet, brown sugar, fruit, slightly bitter ending. overall pretty good, just a little too sweet for my liking, as it sits it has more of a tropical taste.

Fantomasus (291) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Pours a dark cloudy orange with floaties. Flimsy cream colored head that didnt last. Interesting aroma and flavor profile. Hard candy, oranges, caramel, buteerscotch, malt, yeast, and hops undertones. Good stuff.

Not the tip-top, but definitely worth the purchase and the experience. Id have it again, gladly. Bottle from the Hendersonville (NC) Food Co-Op, served in a Unibroue tulip glass. Appearance: golden, apple-juice color. Thick, foamy, meringue-ish head, and a bit cloudy throughout. Immediately it says, "pay attention to me!" Nose: A veritable smorgasbord of olfactory delights is the calling card of this Quad. Apples, cherries, spring lavender fields, faint mild hops, and a pleasant oat-grain hint all greet the nose and say, "dive in!" Taste: "oooohhhhh" is my initial reaction -- caramel, raisin, almond, the slightest bit of butterscotch, and a strong reminiscence of oloroso sherry greet my tongue. A warm finish that reminds me of fine wood rounds it out. Definitely on the sweet side, but Im impressed by how the 11+ % alcohol is so well masked. Palate: Dry like champagne, bubbly all the way through -- nice. Overall: quite nice, a bit sweet but not cloyingly so. A definite winner. Pairing suggestions: good with mild goat cheeses. Im imagining it a solid winner with: grilled scallops, creme brulee, salmon, pork terrine/chops (esp. with cherry sauce), duck with cherries, sweetish mushroom napoleon, or a fruit tray: apples, pears, kiwi fruit.

750 ml fles. Gedronken op oudjaarsavond in Golmbach. Geen tot weinig alcoholsmaak. Niet erg veel smaak.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 4, 2008
750ml bottle from Bevmo Carmel MountainLight copper pour with a slowly fading off-white head. Potent fruity aromas, highly yeasty and candyish, a cake of esters going from yellow apples to pineapple, from honeyed grapes to lime. The highly effervescent body bites at first, but calms the sweetness down a bit. Warming palate, spicy through a doughy yeast dominance. Medium bodied, strong and not particularly polished.
