Pours a deep ebony color with a frothy, off-white head that leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smells of rum soaked raisins with other roasted notes behind it.

Tastes of sweet fruits with some dark malt. Fruits are characterized by raisins and plum with perhaps some bruised pear in the background. Sweetness is pleasant and not overly done. Dark malt notes roll in to add some brown sugar and a touch of chocolate. Alcohol is noticeable, but does not detract and gives the fruits added depth as well as warming the palate.

Mouthfeel is medium-full with a slightly creamy amount of carbonation.

This offering from Kasteel is a goody.

Nice head and big egg shell, yellow cake colored lace bubbles.

Smells of brown sugar, molasses, dark fruits, and some bready notes.

It drinks more like a brown ale than a quad in terms of mouthfeel. Well carbonated with a creamy texture that lingers for some time.

The taste is rather complex with some wood-like characters, raisins, and a fruit cake sweetness that is somewhat muddled into the rich character of the brew. I do get a slight boozy burn but only slightly in the back of the throat.

Very drinkable and very nice. I'll take this any day.

Drank a 0.75 2010 bottle a while ago and still have another: this review however is from an on-tap glass I had in the Antwerp Gollem on Sunday 16 Dec 2012.

Deep, dark brown with ruby red hints: on top a tan coloured crown of foam that hung around for the whole tasting.

Sweet malty molasses with Port like strength and flavours fill the nose and mouth; this is one tasty beer.

Small sips are the order of the day, don't want to rush this or take huge gulps, let it slip down the throat in minute quantities and savour the moment.

Really enjoyed it: this sort of brew is one of the reasons I love going to Belgium so much!

400th beer... And we'll worth it. One of the best beers I've had in a while. Lovely appearance and nose and a taste that I could go back to over and over again.
