look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance-Dark brown bordering on black with a thick tan head that stays fairly constant until the beer warms a bit then some good thick lacing.

Smell-Heavily on the caramel rich malty sweetness with some sweeter spice tones. Some might say cinnamon sugar or maple sugar like aromas.

taste- Follows the nose closely. Very little hop presence this is malty sipper for sure. Dried dark berries, a bit of bitter chocolate, and plenty of spice. Lasting finish.

Mouthfeel- Rich and nicely carbonated. The 10% provides some warmth mid sip and thins the beer out a bit at the swallow. You can feel the booze a bit in this one.

Drinkability- definitely a sipper, ideal for cold or damp evenings.

Overall a high quality quad but a little on the spiced side for my personal taste.

A nicely spiced quad.

Presentation: 33 cl brown capped bottle. Gradient label in orange-burgundy with a framed illustration of a sail boat. Narrative notes ingredients, background, and main characteristics. Shows vintage 2010 and 10% Alc. by Vol. Served in a snifter.

A - Hazy deep dark brown pour, noticeable swirls under a generous frothy ecru head, good retention and surface memory with nice touches of lacing.

S - Pleasing if a bit soft nose initially with a fresh fruity sense and notes of light caramel cream… This was very much served at cellar temp... with time the fruity esters expand a bit more with touches of berries and sugar, but not much more...

T - Sweet fruity salute, prunes, caramel tied to a coated yeasty sense and a De Struise touch before coffee notes emerge… Leading to a complex bitter/hoppy finish. Spicy notes emerge as the brew lingers, pepper and clove with an earthy touch. Some berries before the hops close over the candied malty touches.

M - Medium/full to full body with softly balanced carbonation providing a nice constant tingle… Slight sticky touch under the bitter finish with an emerging boozy dash.

O - Nice long sipper…

Notes: Pretty remarkable and maybe a bit over/hyped… I like it but not to an extreme. And while not bad in any way that De Struise touch I am starting to recognize might not be particularly akin to my palate...

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

11.2 oz bottle, 2010, poured into a goblet

A- Dark brown/black with a nice two finger tan head.

S- Dark fruits, caramel malts, candied sugar, some alcohol. Great smelling beer!

T- Dark fruits, figs and plums really stand out. Getting dark chocolate and roasted coffee, some yeast. Good balance and complex.

M- Medium to full body, smooth.

O- A nice Quad, really enjoyed it. Good complexity, but not as complex as Reserva or Grand Reserva. Definitely will get this again!

Bottle on many occasions ... Deep brown ... thin dark tan head ... Deep fruity malts... sweet rich dark vinous fruits... dark sugers ... light touch of meatyness in nose ... rich sweet dark plums... light treacle ... soft roast toffee malts ... light green raisins ... possibly a touch rough but very well balanced .. soft fruits ... wonderful ... a beer thats well worth the savouring
