A: 2013 vintage on the label with a date of 28|03|14 on the bottle. I guess it's a 2013 vintage released in 2014? Almost cola like coloring. Barely any head. Lots of floaties.
S: Fairly boozy. Reminds me of the Trader Joe's Vintage Ales from Unibroue released every year. That another dark ale "brewed with spices." A bit of sweetness and a bit of vegetable-ness.
T: Chewy molasses caramel up front with herbal/medicinal tones in the back. That doesn't sound nice, but it is.
F: I'm not feeling as floored by this one like I do when I have a Rochefort 10 or other regal Belgian quads.
O: I bought this 2013 vintage in 2015 and aged it a year before consuming. I decided to bust it out when the other day I saw the same store I bought mine selling 2010 bottles. A fun brew that doesn't have quite the fame or mystique of some of the other big boy quads. Something every Belgian beer nerd should notch.

2015 vintage

L - Dark dark brown no head

S - smells like rum fruitcake, delicious

T - Well that's something, dark fruits, brown sugar, a bit vinous. Not boozy at all, a bit sweet

F - Dry mouthfeel, fine carbonation, goes along very well with the taste.

O - A great great quadrupel, one of the best I've had so far. Looking forward to try the 2011 Grand Reserva I have

Vintage 2015.

What may work well for a couple of sips, soon becomes an unbearably sweet, sticky goo that'll have to find its home somewhere else than my digestive system.

From lacasadelacerveza. In Teku glass. Playing Tomb Raider 2015. Big dissapointment. Weak body and an unpleasant sourness that makes me wonder if it was in good state... To repeat to be sure of its state

2015 Edition.
ABV: 10%
Serving temperature 13C (55F) - A little bit to cold, I think.

Dark mahogny, brown/red beer with a tiny beige-brown head. No lacing stays on the glass.

Nose: Nuts, roasted malt, coffee, brownie, caramel malt, prune, raisin, cola and candied sugar. Taste: Sweet caramel, licorice, espresso, roasted malt, maple syrup, raisin, orange, brown sugar and molasses.
The nose grows as the beer heats up.
Mouth: Full body. Complex texture. Medium carbonation with tiny bubbles. Sweet ending with a light, dry tone.

Oh! This is so good! I’m looking forward to cellar this and try a bottle in a few years from now :)
