Batch 14.

In my opinion outstanding quad.

Corked bottle 37,5 cl.
Low carbonation, a bit difficult to uncork for that reason.
Not too much head.

Nice and full malty-cognac, port wine (really nice) flavour.
Rich and sweet fruit aromas (figs, plums,grapes)

Better served at 12 - 18 degrees celsius like sugested by the brewers.
Since this quad was released in june 2013 i think it will get better with time.
Maybe a year after..

Founded in a really awesome shop in Amsterdam, Der bierkoning (a must if you go to that city) for 20 euros, good stuff cost a bit.
