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.

Bought by my wife and served in a tulip glass! Very enjoyable and drinkable with the high ABV.

This was a pleasant surprise. I like the original (the dark triple) and it's one of my highest rated beers, but this is surprisingly light after just finishing a Paulaner Salvator. I was expecting a dark heavy beer (like the triple) and instead it's a bright amber (in comparison) and just the perfect body after a fairly heavy and malty doppel. The alcohol is hardly noticeable in the flavor profile and if it weren't for the fact that it's a little pricey and it has an over 10% abv, this would be a beer that you could drink more than one of easily.

Awesome quad with a great price here in Mexico. One of my favourite beers of all time. Pours golden with red highlights. Taste is complex and strong, quad character is present.
