look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Pours a dark brown, mahogany color. Huge head that is rich in texture. The head actually keeps rising over the course of the beer. It kind of looks like tan colored cake icing on the beer.
Smells of dark fruits. Plums, dates, raisins. Soft spices. Cinnamon.
Lot's of flavors but they are soft, not overwhelming. Toast, black pepper, dark fruits(plums, raisins, red grapes) cinnamon, nutmeg. Just the smallest hint of alchohol on the finish.
Mouthfeel is rich, smooth with just enough twang.
Way to easy to drink for a 10% brew. I picked this up just to try but I'll be buying more when I have the chance.

Bottle marked 2007.

11.2oz bottle poured slowly into a snifter at 50-55 degrees. Lots of head despite the slow pour, 3 finger's wide. Head color actually has a range, from off-white to downright tan. Other than that, it's so dark purple that it appears black without holding it up to the light. Good fluffy lacing and pillowy clouds.

Awesome aromas of fig, cocoa, caramel, sour cherries, grapes, and slight black pepper. Easy to pull out all sorts of dark fruits that would just take forever to list. Also a plus that we don't have to do much work, since it's very aromatic.

Extremely deep and complex, as the smell suggests. First some caramely cola type flavors, with a high level of sweetness and some vanilla. Bread follows, then the dark ripe fruit flavors which go on for days. At the same time, there is an interesting bitter cocoa undertone that I can't quite get at before sour cherries hit for a finale. But wait, there's more. Contrasting with the sweet/sour finish is the black pepper/coriander note from the yeast.

I think the mouthfeel cannot be improved upon for a beer of this style. They've hit it spot on. Westy 12 isn't lively enough, St. Bernardus Abt 12 is overly lively and soda-like. This holds a perfect middle ground of lively little bubbles that fade away in the mouth into a viscous, smooth body that successfully delivers the flavor.

Finishes a little warm and tart, but this doesn't really detract much, infact you could even make a case for it being a good thing. Somewhat of a sipper. It's actually not as hard as you might think to quaff but it's best to drink slowly. Hard to say without having these beers in succession, but I may have found my new favorite Quad.

2007 Bottle poured into my St. Bernardus goblet. Dark brown with a huge fizzy head; barely fit the bottle all in the glass, even pouring very slowly. Thin head laasts for the entire drink.
Smells of dark fruit, alcohol and raosted barley. Taste is complex; plums, figs, estery at first but smoother as it warms, lingering dark fruit taste. Mouthfeel is exceptional, the carbonation just completely envelopes my mouth and throat. Drinkability is limited due to the 10% ABV, but this stuff is really tasty.

2006 Bottle from River's Bend.

Poured reddish/brown color with large light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Very complex dark fruit, citrus, caramel and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Full complex sweet flavor with solid fruity sweet finish and a small bite of alcohol.

Very good standout brew.

Presentation: Poured from an 11.2 oz brown, straight shouldered bottle into a Duvel tulip. Label is rich hues of orange, red, and yellow, and depicts a small, single masted sailing vessel. 2007 vintage.

Appearance: Pours with 4+ fingers of medium tan head; enough to require a pause during the pour. This settles to a still substantial layer, leaving behind absolutely no lacing. Some lacing shows up as I tip the chalice to drink. The beer itself is a deep, dark brown and completely opaque. So much sediment remains in the bottle, that the bottom of the bottle is opaque.

Smell: Strong aroma of sour cherries dominates the smell. Hints of bubblegum phenols in the end.

Taste: Dark caramel flavors with just the slightest wisp of sour cherries. Earthy in the middle. Hints of pipe tobacco in the finish along with a mild but long lasting sweetness. Alcohol is hidden extremely well.

Mouthfeel: Average carbonation level. Body is decent.

Drinkability: A nice winter beer, with dark and full bodied flavors. This could be dangerous, as the 10% ABV is completely hidden.

11.2oz bottle poured into my Westmalle chalice. 2007 bottling

A - imagine pouring a bottle of pepsi (or if you have bad taste, coke) into a glass. Imagine the sights and the sounds. That's what this beer is like. The color is dark brown bordering on black. I would say it's literally the color of the empty bottle. A head formed and I could heard it fizzing and it dissipated just like the "head" on a cup of pop. No head was left after about 4 seconds.

S - spices, fruit (maybe cherries and raisins), not much else.

T - caramel, fruit (cherries, raisins, apples?) and LOTS of spice: cinnamon definitely. The finish was slightly hoppy, but the beer was still really balanced. the alcohol was not noticeable.

M - it had the carbonation of a bottle of pop, so it was very...tingly, to say the least.

D - I'd definitely drink this again, but I don't see what all the fuss is over. I really wouldn't pay $7 for it, but if it was free I wouldn't turn it down.

A: Pours a very dark brown with some garnett hues. Thick light tan colored head that has good retention.

S: Spice, nutmeg in particular, cherries, a bit of cocoa, and a little booze.

T: Tart cherries, but not overly tart. Soft spice, with nutmeg and a touch of cinnamon and black pepper. Some slightly, caramel-like malt is in the background helping to balance out. The booze is a little noticeable.

M&D: A little overcarbonated for my taste, and a slightly dry finish.

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

A - Dark mahogany with a huge, foamy brown head. Head has excellent retention and lacing is great. Lots of floaties in this one...be careful with the pour.

S - Big aroma of dark, alcohol soaked fruits. Some cherry and raisin come to mind. Some spice as well. Nutmeg and anise. An incredibly wide array of aromas that play off of each other very well. As the beer warms the aromas fade a little but meld together incredibly well.

T - Dark fruits soaked in alcohol. Lots of cherries with hints of fig as well. Somewhat spicy, anise and cinnamon/nutmeg primarily. A big blend of flavors that play off each other remarkably well. The alcohol is present, but is in no way overhwelming.

M/D - Full bodied and very crisp. Coast the mouth in flavor and goes down real easy, almost too easy. Alochol is very deceptive at a big 10%.

Pours a cloudy brown with a big frothy tan head. Aroma is medium sweet, heavy yeast, raisin, cocoa and spice. Flavor is sweet, milk chocolate, light anise, spices and brown sugar. The yeast blends all of these flavors better than any other beer I can remember in some time. Full bodied with a very creamy texture. The alcohol is virtually invisible in this one. By far the best beer I have had in some time.

2007 vintage LOT:C,7,BB, 11.2 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Pours a pitch black with lighter brown fluffy head. Has a malty spice smell. Maybe some vanilla and/or coconut too? Very boozey deep malty taste. Malts are sweet with flavors of dark fruits and spice. I taste something that reminds me of coconut and vanilla. Mouthfeel is fairly light with lots of carbonation (in my opinion, too much carbonation for a quadruple). Not so sure I could drink more than one or two of these.

A little disapointed with this beer. I was expecting something better...

2007 vintage picked up at Capone's 2 weeks ago

Kind of a murky, very dark brown with a short tan head that falls to nothing.

Smells of dark fruit and bubblegum + a hint of alcohol.

The taste is sweetish malts, some dark fruit and a bit more noticeable alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium with some carbonation.

Very drinkable even with the 10% alcohol.

A good example of the style, what you'd expect from De Struise.

2006 Vintage from a 11.2 oz. Brown bottle with a yellow/red gradient label with an image of an old sailing ship.

Pours a severely dark reddish brown with an immense spongy kaki colored head and some excellent lacing.

Aroma is chalk full of dark fruit, some spiciness, some twangy musty yeast and a snap of alcohol.

Full-bodied, creamy, fluffy texture, with a slick mouthfeel.

Very sweet flavor, full of dried fruits. The fruit flavor, when combined with the biscuity / bready flavor, makes this brew reminiscent of oatmeal raisin cookies. A touch of chocolate in there. The brew's bitterness comes from some peppery spices in there and a hint of roast flavors. I get a refreshing, juicy fruit / nectarine. The finish is sweet and dry finish with more raisins in the aftertaste. More chocolate aroma and flavor comes out as it warms. Plenty of booziness in there.

This beer is pretty good, I would consider this one a dessert beer due to it's high ABV and sweetness. The sweetness is almost drying. Despite high ABV, this beer is very drinkable. Not a style that I am an expert on but nonetheless a nice beer, I enjoyed the experience.

Thanks to MarineHokie for the bottle.

Cheers!

2007 vintage in an 11.2oz bottle

A: Pours a very dark brown with lots of tan head that stays around for a while. Leaves nice lacing down the glass.

S: The smell is apparent as soon as the bottle is opened.Smells of bananas and spices to my still-developing nose. Spending more time smelling the beer allows me to pick up some dark fruits like raisins or figs.

T: The alcohol is noticeable in the taste, but not overpowering. A complex taste allows you to focus on something new with each sip. Sometimes this worked against it seemed phenolic at times. Maybe this was the booze? Other times, I could taste dark fruits and a sweetness if I didn't keep the brew in my mouth too long.

M: Medium bodied with quite a bit of carbonation, especially considering it's from 2007. However, I didn't think the carbonation gave a fizzy feeling in the mouth. I was pleasantly surprised considering the amount of head the pour produced.

D: Honestly, I'd probably reach for a Rochefort after this one. I think the alcohol was too noticeable (in both taste and feel) to enjoy a second in the same sitting.

Listed as the 2007 version on the bottle.

Pours a black color with a nice thick tan head. The head is very loose and bubbly and the bubbles kind of sparkle and pop on top. Great lacing and retention. Smells nice and tart, kind of funky, with a kick of sweetness and roastiness. There's also a kind of earthiness to it, maybe from the hops, yeast, malts?, but it's very nice. The taste is nice. The tartness kind of overpowers the other things, but it's nice. Something is kind of powdery in it, but the alcohol is well-hidden. It's not too sour, but not too sweet either, and the roastedness is nice in the background. Like some dark, sour fruit. One to like, and it gets better once you get deeper into it. I mentioned this chalky feel, though it is still very full with no burn, but something is a bit astringent. Not bad though. I really enjoyed this, a lot to seek out, and it keeps you sipping. I would recommend this to anyone if they see it, and it may be $6 or so, but worth it if you're interested in darker Belgians or tart/sour ales.

Wow, contents under pressure! Upon popping the cap a deep sticky tan head immediately gushes forth with relentless fury. In order to save the nearby laptop, textbooks and iPod from this unexpected deluge I am unwillingly forced to fellate the bottle of this 2007 edition of Pannepot Old Fisherman's Ale long enough to grab and position the chalice close enough to start my intended pour. Ironic, as there is still foam expectantly waiting at the mouth of the otherwise empty bottle, yet the head dissipates immediately within the glassware. What I am left with is an ale of dark murky opaque carmelized brown, although some suspended particles are noticable near the edge of the glass.

On the nose is rich figgy toffee malts, a nutty character, yeast and spice, along with an omnipresent carmelized sugary sweetness.

Sweet sweet sweet! Almost to the point of being cloying. Yet it becomes bearable after a few sips. Some nut and spice pick up in the middle, finish becomes more earthy, yet with that low lying carmelized burnt sweetness lingering into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is thinner than expected, yet the carbonation provides some rounded body, some stickiness too.

An approachable ale for the style and the abv%, reminiscent for me of Belgian Xmas beers, or even some winter warmers in the flavour profile, sweet and spiced at the same time. Yet doesn't inspire me enough to go back for more.

The bottle was chilled and poured into a wide mouthed goblet. The bottle is 2006 vintage.

Appearance: The body of the beer pours a cloudy reddish brown to mahogany coloration. The head is a creamy tan with reddish hues. Great retention on the head is noted. Thick smears of lacing remain behind on my glass.

Smell: Smells great!... The beer has the fruity aroma of bananas, figs, raisins, rum dipped cherries. This is combined with spicey clove aromas. The aroma of the malt is darkly toasted nearing a roasted nutty flavor and cocoa. A vague sourness is noted to the aroma.

Taste: The flavors of the beer are upfront fruity bananas, sour cherries, cloves and cinamon restrain and combine well with the fruityness. The maltyness of the beer runs to the more extreme end of toasted. Alcohol isnt a factor in the flavor.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: The beer is full bodied. The carbonation is perfect. The beer is incredibly smooth. No alcohol heat is noted in the mouth. This beer was excellent from start to finish. I am going to have to dig out another bottle.

O.K., so I ordered this hoping to get the Pannepøt. This is the spiced version... Damn it...my mistake.
Dark Amber color.. Almost a purpleish looking head.
Aroma was spicy and fruity. Could easily detect the strong Clove.
Bottom line.. I really didn't enjoy the spices at all. Just too much clove for my tastes... The spices really where over powering and too up front... I was able to have the Pannepøt (Monk's brew) later and really enjoyed it.... The spices take away from the complexity for me. I respect this beer, it's just not for me.

Big thick mouth feel. Not to drinkable for me... Fear not I'll leave this for you and drink the Pannepøt.

Pours a dark murky brown with amber hued edges. A large 3 finger light brown head forms on a gentle pour and lingers with excellent retention.

The aroma has some wonderful fruity esters with a hint of spice. a nice malt presence rounds it out, but is overwhelmed by some wonderful yeast quality.

The taste is quite good. A big malt presence hits you up front, with a dark roast giving a bit of chocolate and smoke. Some beautiful fruit esters bring some sweetness to the table with a hint of banana and accompanied by some spice. A slight phenolic quality appears on the back end and is followed by a good deal of heat.

The mouthfeel is full bodied and highly carbonated with a fine and lively carbonation. It has that wonderful high carbonation I've come to know in many Belgian beers, but this has the addition of a fuller mouthfeel which is quite nice.

Drinkability is quite high. Although there is high ABV, this beer is still easy to consume. It's tasting, and well made. A pleasure to consume.

Poured from a 330 ml bottle into an Ommegang chalice. 01/10/09. 2006 vintage. Batch 4. Bottle started to slowly gush after opening.

Pours a deep brownish color with about two fingers of fizzy tan head. The head slowly dropped to a thin layer, excellent retention. Aroma is very funky and musky, like wet dirty socks. Earthy and slightly sour, with some spices and malt.

Taste is malty sweet with a biscuit-like flavor. Plenty of Belgian yeast and candied sugar. The taste is full of dark fruits (raisin, fig, date) and sour cherry. Spices (clove and allspice) and brown sugar round out the flavor profile. Sweet up front, then finishes sour. Very interesting. The alcohol is not noticeable at all in the taste.

Feel is very smooth and creamy from the high carbonation. It's full bodied and slightly heavy. Drinkability is decent. The alcohol is very well hidden and it goes down real smooth.

Overall, a darn good quad. Very tasty and easy to drink. A bit pricey (~$8 for 330 ml), but definitely worth it.

Poured from the bottle a deep dark cola color with a big thick tan head.

The aroma of maple syrup, cloves, nutmeg, dark ripe fruits, and cinnamon is bright and warming.

Tastes of cinnamon, cloves, sour dark cherries, toasted malts, plums, vanilla, raisins, and toffee. The finish is fruity and quite malty. The 10% alcohol is well hidden.

Full bodied, smooth and creamy, and moderately carbonated.

Sit back and enjoy this fine quad form De Struise Brouwers. You won't be disappointed.

11.2 ounce bottle from 2007. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a murky dark brown color with about an inch tan head. Head retention is very good, lacing is OK. The aroma is spicy and fruity, it smells like nutmeg, cinnamon, anise, blueberries, brown sugar and cherries. The taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like nutmeg, raisins, cherries, brown sugar, plums, peppery spice and licorice. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's creamy with very good carbonation. Drinkability is very good too, it's smooth and very easy to drink. Overall I think this is a very good Quad and a great beer in general. I'd buy this again in the future given the chance.

Label reads 2007. Picked up at Princeton Liquors in Maple Grove. Off the bat it reminds me of Brouwerij 't IJ's Struis, interesting. Appears a dark brown, with good head retention. It smells of a strong, funky farmhouse aroma with blackberry and blueberry notes in the background. The flavor has a roasted edge to it, with burnt toffee, along with big tangy sour bread flavor. Frankly, I'm not a huge fan. Maybe the 2006 wasn't sour like this, but there are better quads out there.

2007 Vintage.

Presentation: 11.2 oz bottle into a goblet.

A- Dark cola brown and opaque with slight reddish highlights. Pours with massive tan head, which necessitates pouring in stages. Head slowly fades to ~1/2 finger cap. Head retention is incredible, and lasts the duration of consumption. Lots of sticky lacing.

S- Starts off with a powerfully funky yeastiness, some anise notes, and a slight metallic hint. As the drink warms, a slightly vinegar twang emerges and the metallic notes recede.

T- My initial sip is incredibly funky, powerful, and off-putting. I have evidently not been patient enough, and set the glass aside to warm for awhile longer. As the beer warms (considerably), I am relieved to experience huge improvements in flavor. The yeasty "funkiness" abates to "appropriate" levels, and a malty fruitiness emerges, with some slightly chocolate-esque sweetness on the front. Bitterness is minimal, and 10% ABV is well concealed.
*This beer REALLY must warm up beyond the recommended serving temp (50-55) and up to near room temperature (60-65) to flourish IMO.

M- Fairly heavily carbonated, and very creamy/smooth.

D- Tough for me to pin down on this one. Pretty much a one-bottle-sipper in my book. High ABV is well concealed. Decent.

Future outlook: This beer was a wild ride, an exercise in patience, and a tough beer for me to evaluate and score. Interesting and complex. Not really in line with my favorite types of beer or something that I'd want to drink regularly, but definitely something I could see trying for a change of pace every now and then.

11.2 oz bottle

2007 vintage

Pours a dirty brown color with a medium sized tan head. Big nose of fruity malts, yeast esters and some subtle Belgian spice characteristics. Big bold flavors swim harmoniously in the mouth creating a very smooth flavor profile and body. Malt is obviously dominant, the way the fruitiness carries over from the nose is very impressive and well executed. Medium bodied and incredibly (insanely) drinkable. One of my favorite quads of all time, highly recommended.

A- After a few years this bottle still has lots of fizz to it. I opened the bottle, then went to go and change a light bulb came back and it was almost fizzing out the top. However, the head was quick lived. Very nice dark reddish brown beer. I can see some of the yeast floating in the glass. Still that isn't a bad thing...at least it isn't in huge chunks.

S- I'm getting a good whiff of spices, cinnamon, star anise, nutmeg, clove as well as the alcohol. I get a slight fruit smell with this. But along with that an almost vinegar acid smell too. This smells like it might be a bit tart, must be the phenols.

T- This is quite the roller coaster of a beer taste. There is a sweetness that is there in the beginning of the taste mixed in with a great malt presence. Here is where the darker fruits are tasted as well. Then the sour/bitter taste takes over, but not in a bad way, but things still stay quite sweet. Then back to the malts and fruits, but the rest of the voyage has the sour tart taste riding through to the end.

M- Thick, but it works well for this beer. It isn't over carbonated which I'm digging right at the moment.

D- Very drinkable, I'm having trouble sipping this without taking huge gulps of the beer.
