This is for the 2010 vintage
Poured into St Bernardus goblet
A- poured a dark color with brown highlights. A bit of sediments floating around. Not a big head, but a lingering cream-colored head with near zero lace.
S- sweet bready malts, ripened dark fruit along the lines of raisins, figs, dates.
T- follows the nose, loses some of the fruits. Tastes much better than the 2009. Hardly any heat at all
M- medium-bodied, medium-carbed.
O- as stated earlier, this one really outshines the 2009. Tasted very similar to St Bernardus' Abt 12. This is what I expect a Belgian Quad to taste like!

Vintage 2010 (5 years aged)

About to follow this beer up with a Pannepot Grand Reserva 2009 Vintage.

Pours opaque dark brown with little khaki foam sitting on top. The nose is hints of dark fruit and booze. Flavors of chocolate, plums, vanilla, red apple, alky heat, toffee. Nice subtle crispy carbo, medium feel. Sweet lingering on my tongue.

A very well aged hoe

Tried it alongside best quads (Westvleteren 12, Rochefort 10, St Bernardus 12 and La Trappe Q.) and it was very different. Smoke, chocolate, black berries - none of those is present in those quads. Not much of dried fruits, like in VW12, R10 and SB12. None of the honey and candies, like in La Trappe. More bitter. Also, much darker. I'd say it's something between BA Imp. Stout and Belgian strong dark ales. Very original beer, one of the best Belgian.

Pours a black color. 1/5 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of European yeast, alcohol, sweet malt, hint of spice, hint of wood, hint of liquor, and a hint of pale malt. Fits the style of a Quadrupel. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of European yeast, alcohol, sweet malt, hint of spice, hint of wood, hint of pale malt, and slight liquor. Overall, weak appearance, complex aroma, complex body, but not well blended.

From a 330 ml bottle (2009 vintage) into a chalice. Reviewed from notes dated November 10, 2014.

A-The beer is very, very dark...nearly black. A short, creamy head of mocha foam lasts for quite a while. Not much in the way of visible carbonation.

S-The aroma is more like a stout than many quadrupels with some nutty, chocolate and roasted flavors coming through. That being said, there is still a healthy dose of Belgian flavors like nutmeg spice, molasses, brown sugar, molasses, prune, and raisin.

T-The taste is more fruity than the smell with plum, raisin, prune, and grape flavors hitting my palate. I also taste brown sugar, tobacco, and a light kick of black pepper spice on the finish. Alcohol is mostly concealed but a little bit of medicinal flavor comes through. My bottle was a 2009 vintage so I'm not surprised that I taste a bit of oxidation.

M-A lovely, creamy, mild carbonation rolls across the palate. The body is medium to full. Very nice.

O-This is another really good De Struise beer. The Reserva, like their other BDSA/Quad style beers is a nice mix of traditional flavors that have been tweaked just a bit. The high point of this beer is the mouthfeel, which is damn near perfect. Really well made beer here.
