Poured into Pint mug, I know it's not the proper glass, but I compensated as a result.

Appearance: Reddish cloudy unfiltered burn amber orangy with a thin white head.

Aroma: very fruity like raspberries and apple and plums

Taste: Fruity, like sweet raspberries, cranberries, blueberries, with plums and apple. I cant taste the alcohol.

Mouthfeel: thin boddied and highly carbonated.

Overall: This is a great beer, much sweeter than the Trappistes Rochefort 10. This is still a great beer although I don't think it compares to it.

bottle into tulip

appearance: cloudy unfiltered burnt orange, with some mahogany undertones, 2 finger bubbly white head, not much lacing. also the bottle shape is remarkably awesome.

smell: dark fruits, bready notes, sweet malt, plum

taste: bready, dark fruits, sweet and sugary, figs, caramel, vanilla, coriander, plum. The finish is so smooth that you would think this is a 6% ABV beer. Wow, this is amazingly balanced and smooth, they're on some Monk level shit…

mouthfeel: highly carbonated and rather thin bodied

overall: This Quad honestly gives a monk a run for their money. Easily my favorite non-trappist Quad (that's including ABT 12), this is honestly a very underrated beer. I've had their Tripel and it was amazing, and this is just an all around amazing brew. I will be buying this again, in my opinion this one almost rivals the beloved Rochefort 10, AND is cheaper is by about $3.00 where I live. Pleasantly surprised once again from this sleeper Belgian brewery, will be trying all of their beers.

On tap and served in a tulip. The beer poured a very dark chocolate, almost opaque color,
with a 1/2 finger head. Nice lacing.

An immediate aroma of fruit, a bit of chocolate- but not strong. The aroma dissipated
with warming.

The mouth feel was very pleasant, with a hint of carbonation.

The taste is the prize with this quad. Chocolate, fruit, raisins, figs. With warming,
the taste profile expands- richer chocolate, fruit- a quadruple delight.

I wasn't familiar with this beer. It is outstanding, and now it is one of my favorite
Belgian Quads.

A: Poured a from bottle into a tulip glass - amber, with a off white head of about 3 fingers of soapy fine bubbles and steady effervescence.

S: Strong yeast, dried Fruit (fig/plum) some non specific fruity esters

T: Malty, dried fruit forward almost like a sweet port/sherry with a bit of tart acidity from the carbonation leaving a fairly clean palate. Much fruitier/sweeter than other quads.

M: Great combination of syrup and the fullness of the carbonation, a really spectacular combination. Made more so as it warms in the mouth.

O: Gulden Draak is incredible, but Gulden Draak 9000 is even more so. Great for a barbeque, or casual dinner event, try with steak or very flavorful game.
