look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Quite possibly one of my favorite beers in the world. After having a bunch of four packs over the last few months I have to go the full Monty on taste. Dangerously, ridiculously easy to drink, but as complex as your taste buds will allow it to be. My liver would like to thank the importer that this is not available more cheaply in the US. How this is 10.7% ABV will be an eternal mystery to me.

Bold, full of flavor, bitterness throughout. Always an excellent choice.

A: dusky red body with a billowing rocky tan head. Dissipates quickly, leaving snaky lacing.

S: brandy and dark fruits on the nose. Enticing, but not as much so as its sister.

T: Classic quadrupel depth. Candied figs and plums with a hint of toasted marshmallow sweetness and caramel. Quite boozy and warming, in a good way.

F: good, akin to the original gulden draak.

O: pretty good quad!

Spicy, peppery Belgian yeast in the nose. Pours deep amber with a healthy white head. A bit light for a quad, but lots of fruit. Grapes, pears, apples, followed by plums, raisins and dark fruits. Highly carbonated and effervescent with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Really nice quad, quite enjoyable.
