4.43/5 rDev +6.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Bottle: stylish. Embossed brown 330mL bottle, very stylish label.
Appearance: moderate hazy brown colour. Nice off-white head with a good dose of lace on the edges of the glass.
Aroma: strong dark fruits, dates, figs and light caramel. Like sherry / port to wine. Seems fortified.
Taste: malt sweetness with spices. Cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon, rum and mocha. Warming alcohol.
Aftertaste: the warming alcohol remains, not at all unpleasant. Adds to the texture and the sensation, creates a secondary wave of flavours.
Mouth feel: a lovely, rich and creamy body. The carbonation is low also, allowing one to slowly sip this wonderful brew.
Overall: fantastic Belgian Quadrupel. Haven't had one before, but it kind of reminds me of how a port or a sherry is to wine - it is like a fortified beer - which it probably is, at 10% ABV. Only thing holding me back is the price - AU$116 per case in 2012. Ouch. To be honest though, it is in fact worth it.

13oz draft pour at bier markt mississauga
a: deep orange/amber hue with half a finger of head
s: huge banana and vanilla up front, great stuff. hints of maraschino cherries. alcohol is present
t: a melange of bananas, maraschino cherries, and vanilla to begin with. it's sweet all around but not offensively so. nice! but what i dislike here is the alcohol presence -- it's rather strong and makes the entire tasting feel medicinal. light spice on the back-end. dry finish
m: medium body, medium carbonation
o: this beer has a lovely aroma but the flavours are all ruined by the alcohol strength
Serving type: on-tap

Summer night in Sweden with a 750 ml bottle in the garden. This is love.
Do think the big bottle has much more taste and nose
If you want this and if you are in Scandinavia do make a stop in Denmark were the price is "very low" ~ 5 USD at most supermarkets.
