Préaris Marius Russian Imperial Stout
Bottle shared in Hackney - sourced from an online shop. Pours black-brown with a fizzy tan head that settles into a thin cream. Soft roasted malts on the nose, some burnt butterscotch and toffee, dried berries. Medium sweet flavour with notes of brown bread, berries, alcohol, background toasted malts. Medium to full bodied, somewhat oily, with fine carbonation. Sweet and warming in the finish, with further toasted toffee, dried fruits, hints of cocoa. Not bad overall.

Préaris Quadrocinno
330ml bottle from LCBO - hope I like this one, I have another bottle of it. Quite a cloudy deep reddish-orange pour, lovely thick beige lasting head. Fairly sweet malt and alcohol on the nose - something spicy and "green" in there, I guess that's the chestnuts - has some ESB-like light bitterness about it; glad I am having this on a cold December day. Taste - yep, definitely like a hyper ESB - way more alcohol (quite ear-warming) and whatever the chestnuts are adding I like it. Average body, strong carbonation, a little floral/boozy in the finish; yes, quite happy to have an accidental second bottle of this in my fridge!

Préaris Quadrocinno
Foamy dark ruby. Aroma is raisin, booze, coffee. Have a sip and you get a lot of coffee. When its sits for a bit you get more of the dark fruits coming through, but not a lot. Doesn't have that wild funky complexity you expect for the style, except a bit in the boozy bitter finish. Mouthfeel is very bubbly and foamy, really distractingly so.

Préaris Grand Cru 2015 (Bourbon BA: Maker's Mark)
Pours deep brown with low tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, dried fruit, raisins and dates, the bourbon really works with the quad in this instance! Taste is sweet, bourbon boozy, warming, nice. Body is waaaay too light which throws you off. Had this been fuller bodied, I’m sure it would be averaging over 4.0, but as it stands, it just drags the whole thing down.

Flaska delad med Samuel214, tack! Passerat bäst före-datum med ett par månader. Kastanjeröd med beige krona. Mörk torkad frukt, lite bäriga toner och maltsötma. I eftersmaken lite blöt kartong och brända toner. Även lite bittra toner som stör något.

Préaris Marius Russian Imperial Stout
On tap during the 5th Festibière Gembloux 2017 Bon nez fleuri à la mouture de café, et de chicorée avec du caramel et une amertume florale. Attaque sur la levure et les malts torréfiés livrant des saveurs de café. Le milieu de bouche où se mélangent les saveurs caramélisées et l'alcool bien présent au palais est plus sirupeux en descendant dans le gosier. Une petite saveur fruitée s'ajoute (surtout de la groseille, ou de la mûre) pour apporter au surplus une acidité agréable qui contre-balance bien une certaine lourdeur maltée. Finale bien en équilibre avec ses saveurs cacaoté et poudreuse légèrement astringentes.

Préaris Marius Reserva 2016 (Sherry)
Zwart bier met beige schuimkraag. Geur: wat drop licht gerookt, wat eikel of beukennoot, hout, wat vineus. Smaak: moutzoet, geroosterd, toets houtskool, licht alcoholisch, wat donker fruit. Matige koolzuurprikkel. Volmondig. Afdronk: zoet, wat kleverig en alcoholisch. Ik weet niet wat de bijdrage van de sherry (vat) was.

Préaris Quadrocinno
Kolor ciemno brązowy, pozbawiony refleksów. Piana tworzy wspaniałą, puszystą koronę. Jest brązowa, zbudowana z drobnych pęcherzyków i bardzo trwała. W aromacie słodkie, ciemne owoce, między innymi winogrona, dalej wanilia, orzechy. W tle bardzo słabo wyczuwalne kakao. Smak: tutaj jest podobnie, na pierwszym planie ciemne słodkie owoce, wanilia zdecydowanie wygaszona, za to akcenty orzechowe są wyraźniejsze, mocniejsze. Podobnie jak wcześniej, minimalnie wyczuwalne nuty kakao. Goryczka na finiszu, sucha, orzechowa. Alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty, delikatnie rozgrzewa. Wysycenie średnie w kierunku do wysokiego, wg. mnie jest zdecydowanie za wysokie. Quadrocinno jak na "Quada" ma za mało ciała, wydaje się zbyt wodniste.

26/VIII/17 - 33cl bottle from Gollem (Antwerpen) @ RBBSG17 - BB: 27/IV/18 (2017-1319) Thanks to 77ships for sharing the bottle!

Rather cloudy orange to beige beer, big aery irregular off-white head, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots of grains, malty, very German impression, slightly fruit, some citrus. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: bit malty, grains, some citrus, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: bit fruity, yeast, bit sweet, malty, banana peel. Sessionable, but lacking ipa-character.

Tasting at SF, Vancouver; 16/03/2021
Black color. Strong smell of yeast; then it goes away replaced by a better aroma of roasted nuts. Medium body strength, roasted malt flavor, quite strong yeast flavor, that is particularly strong in the final, along with a touch of liquorice. Boozy.
Not very exciting.

Tasting at SF, Vancouver; 16/03/2021
Black color. Mild booze aroma, then the glue smell of the base beer comes out. Less carbonated, softer mouthfeel, the alcohol is as present, the liquorice is stronger, some roasted malt.
Not very cohesive.

Préaris Marius Reserva 2016 (Sherry)
375mL bottle, pours black with a large tan head. Nose is heavy on the sherry barrels, with a fairly harsh boozy character and medium roasted malt. Flavour is fairly harsh as well, with boozy sherry barrels, medium roast, and some burnt character. Not exactly elegant, but I do enjoy the liqueur character in its robustness. The more it warms, the more its depth shines through. Very nice stuff.

375ml bottle @ the office. Pours an opaque dark brown colour with a thin tan head. Nose is well influenced on the nose with the base beer takes a back seat. Flavour is metallic, once the palate adjusts it drinks very much like the base beer with a moderate sherry warming.

Préaris Marius Reserva 2016 (Sherry)
Dark brown. The sherry and wood come through in the aroma, and the dark sugars on the base beer. A bit fizzy and thin. The sherry comes through nicely, but the base is definitely light, and in this case the wine takes over, and there's even less of the base beer character. In terms of size and complexity, it's definitely a let down.

750ml bottle @ the office. Pours an opaque dark brown with a small tan head. Nose is light roast and more so toasted malt. Flavour is roasted malt with a boozy character. It is light bodied and quite thin but drinks well but I feel it's a lesser version of what it could be.

Préaris Marius Russian Imperial Stout
Dark brown, thin head. A little bit boozy, with dark fruits that are maybe a little burnt, and certainly dark sugars, even if I can't figure out what kind. This tastes big, but it actually comes across a little bit light in the body. Sort of gets a little weak in the finish. The initial aroma was pretty big, and interesting, but then the palate never really had the follow-through.

Vintage 2015. Pours hazy dark brown with a small, off-white head. The aroma contains red fruits, cognac, liquor, wine, wood, some chocolate and caramel. It tastes medium fruity sweet and light bitter; a tad hoppy, some warming alcohol. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. So alluring!

Pours hazy yellow with a diminishing, frothy, white head. The aroma contains passionfruit, exotic fruits, (fruity) hops, some wheat. It tastes light fruity sweet and light to medium hoppy bitter, with a long, bit dry, yet sweetish finish. Medium body, oily texture, fizzy carbonation. Recommended!

Pours hazy yellow with a frothy, white head. The aroma contains (slightly roasted) coffee, roasted malt, herbs & hops. It tastes light to medium roasted bitter; a very light sweet touch. Short finish with a drying effect. Very short but intense taste. Light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. So it's a blond beer with a coffee taste, but hardly more...

Pours clear dark golden with a diminishing, frothy, off-white head. The aroma contains malt, (flowery) hops, herbs & spices, some caramel. It tastes light malty sweet and medium to light spicy bitter with a medium long herbal finish, bit dry. Medium body, slick/watery texture, soft carbonation. Not really what I expected from a Christmas beer, but the pun on the label made up for that.

Pours hazy golden with a small, frothy, off-white head. The aroma contains (fruity) hops (unmistakeable Citra), tropic fruits, some iron, citrus and yeast. It tastes light to medium hoppy bitter and very light fruity sour; dry finish. Medium body, slick/oily texture, fizzy carbonation. Although it does have a rough edge, this would be a great introduction for anyone new to IPAs.

Pours hazy red with a lasting, foamy, pink head. The aroma contains beetroot, red fruits, some caramel, wheat, yeast, hops and earth. It tastes light sour and light to medium bitter, with a dry, wheaty and earthy finish. Medium body, slightly watery texture, soft carbonation. Though I wouldn't drink too much of it, it's definitely well-made.

Préaris @ Café Congé tasting event by the Gentse Biervereniging, Ghent (26 October 2017). With Anke. Cheers to Andy, Erwin & Tim!
Pours cloudy orange with a thin, disappearing, white head. The aroma contains carrot, citrus, some honey, lemon, fruits & vegetables (pumpkin?). It tastes medium sour, like fruit & vegetable juice, only very light sweet and bitter with hints of carrot in the finish. Light/medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation. Something completely different and succesful at that; can't say the aroma was very enticing but it gets an extra point for originality.

Préaris Grand Cru 2014 (Jack Daniels BA)
Bottle from The Gull, North Vancouver; synthetic cork; vintage 2014, 3 years old
Brown color. Some mellow aroma, caramel, spices (anise). Good body strength; it has enough malt depth and some caramel flavor, but the mild spices are not very good, and they seem to clash with the whiskey, that is also adding a bit too much booze.
Overpriced.
