Pours a hazy copper color with a medium top of beige head that dissolves quickly. Aroma is of dark malts, caramel, tofee, bread, apples, raisins, dates, figs and spices. The taste starts sweet with good notes of dark and dried fruits, while is a good amount of malts in the back with notes of roastiness, dark bread and caramel. The finish has a a slight bitterness and some notes of spices, with the malty background still in place. The flavours are actually balanced great, and the aftertaste has a good lenght and strenght. Soft and oily mouthfeel with a moderate carbonation and a medium body.
A good example of a quadruple.

From cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Playing Khimera. Abv well hidden. Soft dark fruits notes that grows on you the more you have and light metal notes that dissipate with time

Poured to a Duvel glass.

A: Body is coppery with a two finger thick white head. Average retention and no lacing.
S: The aroma is very strong on belgian candi and malts' roastiness.
T: Taste is very sweet due to the high sugary contents on this beer. Both the malts and belgian candi. It ends with a high alcohol finish. Could be smoother.
M: Body is medium. Carbonation is medium. Alcohol presence is very high. Sweetness is high.
O: Not sure if this can qualify as a Quad but could be an interesting Belgian (Dark?) Strong Ale.

Clear copper apparance for this certainly big quadrupel. It's definitely less complex than darker versions of quadrupels. It's a lot on the nuts, has a vinous astringent way of presenting itself. Its semi-dry character makes this estery forward ale a nice offering and a beer you can drink down easily even with the high ABV

Burgundy colour with some haze and a fluffy head of foam. It sinks quite fast, but the retention is nice and the surface stays covered. Full nose of dates, cinnamon, caramel and hops. The taste follows the smell, though with some added spices like cardamon and pepper. The alcohol is present, which is no surprise at 11.5 abv, but i'm amazed how subtle it blends with the other flavours. It drinks very smoothly and gives a pleasant alcohol warmth. Nice winter stuff.

P- what is a murky burgundy red with a fin off-white bubbly head.
S- smells like heaven! Loads of dark fruit raisins dates cherries. Tons of melted caramel and Belgian yeast.
T- Taste follows the nose. Tastes like heaven. Fruits are candied. Slight alcohol and hop burn.
M- goes down like Silk. Medium to full-bodied quad. Nice warming from the alcohol. This is a great winter beer.

A - Pours a chestnut, raison burgundy color with a thick, ivory colored lacing ring.

S - Plums, raisons, toffee, dark Belgian candy sugar, cherry. Nice dark fruit aroma.

T - Follows the nose: raisons, plums, dates, cherries, some dark toasted Belgian candy sugar sweetness, toffee, and some minimal traces of alcohol (but overall well hidden). No alcohol heat permeating on the way down.

M - Big and full bodied, silky smooth texture.

O - This is a fine Quad.
