The beer has a very dark color, almost black, with a beige head. Aroma of spices, fruit (plums, raisins), and a little smell of wine. These aromas reappear in the taste, combined with some hints of chocolate and coffee and a little smoke in the afterstaste. You can really taste that this beer is matured in wine and calvados barrels. But all these different tastes are so well balanced, which makes it a top class beer.

I had this beer at La capsule in France. Trully amazing beer. Also had it in bottle. Incredible complexity. Very Close to perfection.

2008 bottle opened in 2014. This is brief because I did not have access to the internet at the time of opening. Past its prime but wonderful and interesting. Intricate flavors in harmony and rather subdued. I bought this bottle in Belgium at a shop in Brussels.

Hazy, dark brown beer with a little red in it. One finger high, beige head that dissapears fast without any lacing on the glass.

Nose: Wow! Fudge, sweet caramel malt, coffe, vanilla, oak, pine, whipped cream, brown sugar, banana, dried fruit, green apples, molasses and syrup.
Taste: Sweet! Nuts, cocoa, coffe, vanilla, oak, syrup, brown sugar, herbs, apricot and raisin.
Body: Medium, complex body with a light carbonation. Sweet, oily texture.

This is f-ing awesom! I'm glad I got a lot of bottles to my beercellar...

2005 vintage

Holy great 10-year old aged beer. This must have been properly cellared because this was a nice, smooth, balanced beer. The feel of this beer was particularly surprising. Silky smooth with a nice tingly carbonation. Can't wait for bottle #2

2009 Vintage

Look: Dark brown, almost black; hints of red. Pours with a 1 finger tan head that dies down quickly leaving no trace.

Smell: Rich, sweet (think molasses) aroma; mild spices, malty. Delicious aroma that made me want to dive right in.

Taste: Similar to how it smelled, only better. Rich, sweet (think molasses) taste, slightly spicy, malty. Rich, full delicious quad flavor. Perfect.

Feel: Medium to full body; velvety smooth in your mouth. Perfect.

Overall: Fantastic quad. The best that I ever have had. Absolutely delicious smell and flavor, Great feel. I could drink this over and over. I want more!
