33cl bottle. Good beer and I was surprised that the ABV was not overpowering in the flavor and aroma. GonZoBeeR (3060) - ste-catherine, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2007

Pours a rich, coppery-amber with minimal clarity and plenty of effervescence; the head is fizzy at first but grows and becomes creamy, full, and off-white with excellent longevity and tight lacing. Nose is very fruity and sweet; notes of overripe peach, muscat grapes, cherries, lots of candi sugar, very rich caramels, graham cracker, and yeast. Flavor is sweet with candi sugar, caramized cherries, apricot, raisin, cinnamon, faint chocolate, and an earthy bitterness there almost keeping from being too sweet. Palate is medium to full, syrupy, very chewy, and lively. Finishes long with some earthy bitterness, candi sugar, and caramelized cherry. This one was ridiculously sweet but the complexities and numerous fruit flavors kept my intrigue. So complex, so rich, and wonderfully fruity. I was very impressed with this quad-esque Belgian and don’t realize why this one has gotten such bad scores. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2007
From a growler filled at Bierkraft this strong ale pours hazy light brown witha medium head. The aroma is sweet and spicey. You get a palate flavor of sweet amltinesswith notes of raison and overripe peach. The finish is full but you can taste the high abv. Indra (2710) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUL 8, 2007
330ml bottle. Malty and fruity aroma, sweet and mildly spicy with touches of caramel and spun sugar alongside some faint peach and white grape notes. Medium-dark sunset red color, clear, with a lasting, foamy, sticky head and lacing. Flavor profile is predominantly sweet and richly sugary, this present throughout from beginning to end, and accompanied by lighter quantities of peppery spice, honeyed pear, apricot, orange and golden raisin, and with a faintly medicinal alcohol presence at the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy, smoothly effervescent and warming, body is massively full. More subtle in some aspects, more sledgehammer in others, but elicits a certain degree of intrigue all the same.

Bottle at home. Nice dark brown hue. Quick receding head. Sugary aroma. Strong alcohol content. Full flavoured. Way too strong in taste. Wim (4254) - Weelde, BELGIUM - JUL 5, 2007

Pours dark amber with light disapating head. Light lacing. Smells like sweet roasted malts. big sweet alcohol taste. good stuff as with all the urthel beers mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Pours a cloudy amber with a small white head. Smells of cinnamon and dark fruits, and yeast. Very sweet taste, very malty as well. Alot of candy sugar, leaves a big sweet taste on the palate and on the lips. Big mouthfeel, pretty thick. Doesnt seem heavy enough to be labeled a quad in my opinion, a nice dubbel would be a better label in my opinion. Nice brew though. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2007
Sampled from a 330ml bottle. (compared to the Koninghoeven Quad) Similar muddy amber hue. Same creamy head. More of a yeasty barnyard nose. Good bready nose. Smooth with a touch more burn. Sharper. More fruity, but edged. Nice dark fruit notes. Hint of toffee. Acidic citrus note. Bigger than the previous, but prefered the other.
