Amber color with a huge thick orange head with great retention and leaving lots of laces.
Unexpectedly light aroma for a Quad with notes of caramel, mild grape and banana.
Flavor with citrusy notes, candi sugar, light spices, Portuguese young wine, mild plum, green apples, raisins and honey. It has a short delay in drying your mouth.
Medium to full body with appropriate carbonation. It is hard to believe it has an alcohol content of 10.5% abv.
I don’t know why I was expecting an even more powerful version of Gulden Draak (I guess the label), but I got a bit less complex and intense beer that is rather smooth, which in a second thought, it is a quality on its own, it is extremely drinkable at 10.5% abv. Anyway, it is a definitely a good beer and kept getting better as it approached room temperature.

Similar to the white bottle Gulden Draak. Amber with a nice chunky head. Very nice bouquet. Smells like brown sugar, caramel, toffee, some chocolate. Low to medium carbonation. Fruity in front. Bitter in the middle. Strong finish. Very complex and flavorful. A very detailed brew.

Very caramel like golden brown color with medium sized head that reduces quite fast to a thin layer and stays present.

I love the smell of this beer. It is sweet like brown suger, but there are also fresher notes of fruit here, with a bit of buble gum.

The taste is good. This is a very heavy beer, so of course it is sweet and you get a good amount of alcohol, but the balance is nice. Tastes like caramel with dark fruits. ALso there is a good ammount of carbonation, which keeps the experience alive and interesting. After drinking a glass or two you get a sticky film in your mouth, which I don't like. You should probably drink one or two glasses most.

This is a very nice dark Belgium beer, but not the best I had.
