Jethro6191 (508) - Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Pours a copper-brown with a dense creamy ivory head. Malty sweet aroma with fruity esters, candy sugar, toast, cherry, caramel, raisin, and alcohol notes. Flavor is wonderfully rich and sweet with a fruity spiciness. Flavor notes are similar to the aromas. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with a slight alcohol warm. The carbonation level is high and the finish is semi-dry. This is an awesome beer... Heaven in a glass! Hats off to Shelton Brothers for bringing this limited release to the US and to Crown Liquors for bringing it to Indianapolis.

sjorsvdg (484) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2017
Krachtig aroma met wat hout, gist, pruimedant, abrikoos. Donkerbruine quadrupel met een zeer mooie schuimkop. In het smaakpalet komen hartige en zoete tonen voor: in het begin wat stro, hout, gist en koffie, daarna de zoetere fruitige tonen met pruim, vijg en abrikoos, gevolgd door een licht bittere afdronk van geroosterd brood en wat koffie. Uitstekend!

Bottle 0,33L. Hazy, dark chestnut color with average big, fizzy, light brown head that goes away fast. Big yeasts sediment. Strong aroma of dried dark fruits, caramel and alcohol. Taste starts slightly sweet with a lot of dried dark fruits, than turns to light to medium bitter finish with a lot of mentioned fruits and some Belgian yeasts. Ive aged it almost two years after date of exp. and next time Ill buy it, Ill try it fresher.
