Got this on tap at Cafe Bruges in Carlisle, PA, when I dropped my kid off at college. Whoda thunk? I was pretty amazed at the flavor, dried fruit like raisins and prune, good malt and very yeasty but very little hops. Very high alcohol percentage but it doesn't show up so much in the flavor, more a warmth as it goes down your throat. It pours a light brown, lighter than the Gulden Draak dark triple. Carbonation is good, not too much, small bubbles like a good champagne and it has a very rich mouth feel. I like it better than the dark triple; possibly the best beer I've ever tasted. I wonder if it would be as good in bottles and I wish I could find it in stores. The dark triple is now available in Wegman's but not not the 9000.

Ligher in color than most quads. Really nice yeasty spice on the nose. Taste is great and balanced. Warming finish. Very creamy full bodied feel. A really nice quad. Nothing wrong here. Glad its easy to find this one.

You'd think Gulden Draak had been making this quad for ages instead of just 3 years or so. Poured a one finger white head over an amber body into a 25 cl La Trappe chalice from a corked and caged 750 ml bottle. Light, musty fruit smell. Tastes of toffee and tobacco, with a subtle fruit sweetness, and a unique ginger ale type undercurrent. Absolutely spectacular effervescent, mouth-puffing mouthfeel, a leader in the style, right up there with St. B abt 12. Gulden Draak may be late to the quad party, but they nailed it.

Review number 400.

330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip.

A: Bronze, clear, one and a half finger head, good retention with lots of lacing
clinging to the side of the glass.

S: Fruity, boozy esters, some cherry.

T: Hits you with the trademark Van Steenberge yeasty fruity sweetness, followed up with a hard hitting boozy kick, strong notes of brandy.

M: Minimal carbonation, heavy chewy texture, the booze made it burn.

O: Basically this was brandy thinned out with water, a really heavy sipping beer, the booze took away attention from anything else, slightly disappointing offering from one of my favorite breweries, I hope age can mellow this beer.

Dried cherries and cranberry. Fizzy carbonation. Alcohol at the end is slightly medicinal
