Sent to me by a friend in Calgary. 2005 vintage.
A - Pours the definition of 'murky.' Sort of a muddy brown colour in the glass with a one finger beige. head. Good carbonation. Spotty lace and a film of retention.
S - Aroma is full of leather and molasses up front. Lot's of dark fruit and sugar as well. Mild tart dark fruit or cherry notes. Very interesting and complex aroma unlike anything in a Quad I've smelled.
T - Tart cherry really dominates. Barrel character. Dark fruit is big with some wood. Sugar, woody, mild molasses. Might be a little past it's prime as the mild sourness comes out pretty strong, but it's still enjoyable. Not as good as the aroma, but not bad at all.
M - Nice, mild carbonation, medium to full body and a dry and mildly tart finish with lot's of dryness.
O/D - This is probably a bit oxidized, but still pretty enjoyable. The aroma is quite original and enjoyable with lot's of complexity. You can tell that there was a world class Quad underneath this, but maybe it peaked a few years ago. Still pretty darn good though.

Notes from Kulminator. Vintage 2006. Aged in French oak and finished in calvados barrels for 8 months. A very dusty bottle. Served from a 375ml dusty bottle into a DeStruise chalice.
A- Black with soft white head. Awesome lacing.
S-Apple, chocoalte, caramel, oak, booze, brown bread.
T-Apple, brandy, oak, caramel, maple syrup, chocolate, no booze.
M-Thinning body, very little heat, ample enough carbonation.
O-Incredible. Calvados is there, but light. Drink it now before the Barre disappears.

Drank from my Westvleteren chalice, 2008 Vintage
A - Pours a dark cola colour with a one fingered head that reduces quickly to a film.
S - Plenty of malts with oak and a dark fruit aroma
T - Plenty of dark fruit, molasses, brown sugar but not much oak.
M - Medium body with low carbonation.
O - A little disappointed with this beer. Not enough oaky flavours and considering its so hard to get I wouldn't bother.

Sampled from a 33cl bottle I picked up in Brussels. Vintage 2006. Best before March 2014.
A - A mahogany brown with some light coming through. Very little head.
S - Oak, brown sugar, plums and a touch of red wine. Very nice.
T - Rich but smooth with lots of brown sugar and caramel with notes of fig, raisin, oak and black pepper. Entertaining from start to finish. Warming but the 10% alcohol is well hidden.
M - Creamy with very little carbonation.
O - A thought provoking beer.
