4.21/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: Beer pours a a dark golden color, light bubbles floating throughout the body. White head is really thick rising to just over a fingers length, barely moves while sipping.

Smell: Light yeast scent. but take a another sniff you little caramel and light scotch feel.

Taste: Slightly complex, little sweet in a honey type of way, gently bitter with full taste.

Mouth: Ever sticking taste, light to medium combination which so sharply smooth.

Overall: Take your time when drinking this gem, it is incredibly well crafted. I appreciate quality and this beer easily carries it beginning to end. Salud!

4.56/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a corked 750 ml bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep and hazy amber orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big three finger off white head that slowly fades into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.

Smell: A yeasty, fruity, and spicy malt forward aroma with big hints of dark fruits. Belgian yeast with some upfront hints of clove, pepper, and cinnamon spicing. Sweet scent of Belgian candied sugar and brown sugar. Toasted malt with sweet hints of caramel, toffee, biscuit, toasted bread, and straw. Big fruit esters with hints of bananas, pear, orange, and apples along with a big presence of dark fruit including hints of grapes, raisin, fig, prune, cherry, and plum. Also some hints of leather and licorice spicing. Subtle earthy hop hints. A very good complex aroma.

Taste: Like the nose, a yeasty, spicy, and very fruity malt driven taste with a big presence of dark fruits. Upfront Belgian yeast with some notes of clove, peppers, funk, and cinnamon spice. Sweet taste of candied sugar and brown sugar. Toasted malt with bready and sweet notes of caramel, biscuit, toasted bread, and toffee. Huge taste of dried fruits with good notes of banana, apples, pear, and orange. Dark fruit notes of raisin, fig, grapes, prune, cherry, and plum. Good notes of leather and slight tobacco. Subtle earthy and grassy hop notes. A very good Belgian taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Creamy, chewy, spicy, and fairly juicy with a drying finish. Alcohol presence is felt but its not overly hot.

Overall: A really great Belgian Quad. Good mix of fruit esters, spices, and toasty malt. Up there with the best.

3.84/5  rDev -7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Amber color with a huge thick orange head with great retention and leaving lots of laces.
Unexpectedly light aroma for a Quad with notes of caramel, mild grape and banana.
Flavor with citrusy notes, candi sugar, light spices, Portuguese young wine, mild plum, green apples, raisins and honey. It has a short delay in drying your mouth.
Medium to full body with appropriate carbonation. It is hard to believe it has an alcohol content of 10.5% abv.
I don’t know why I was expecting an even more powerful version of Gulden Draak (I guess the label), but I got a bit less complex and intense beer that is rather smooth, which in a second thought, it is a quality on its own, it is extremely drinkable at 10.5% abv. Anyway, it is a definitely a good beer and kept getting better as it approached room temperature.
