Black, small white head that dissapears quickly.

Main aromas are dried raisins, figs, almonds and amaretti. It's nice but lacks a bit of a punch.

Taste follows the nose. It's not dense as other beers in the style but it's fairly complex.

Mouthfeel falls a bit thin. Not in the same league as the Bemgian greats.

Good beer.

Had on tap. All of the quad foundations are there. Tons of semi-sweet malt, dark fruits such as plum and raisin, belgian spices, and some toffee sweetness to round out. However the booze content is very prevalent and washes over all the other flavors in a not the most pleasant way. Still enjoyable, but be prepared

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look: Almost-opaque ruby red with a tan head.

Smell: Subtle spices and caramel, but LOTS of dark fruits - plums, raisins, a bit of cherry. Vague hints of banana, some pine. I found the smell just a little underwhelming, but what was there was very good!

Taste: More of the dark fruits, some sugar, yeast, rum, licorice.

Feel: Pretty full bodied, it's got kind of a syrupy feel to it. Not too much carbonation. Leaves a warm, dry, slightly tingly mouthfeel.

Overall: Wonderful quad!

From Saveur-Biere. In Grimbergem cup. Good quad, full of plum notes and maybe slight metal. Sniffable and inciting to long and quick sips. A pity its lack of foam. 1 month before bb date

Dark brown color with a very thin head with short retention.
Sweet aroma with lots of prunes on caramel, toasted malts, some pine, mild cocoa, raisins and vanilla.
Flavor with notes of prunes, a bit of pine, chocolate, caramels, cinnamon, vanilla, licorice, dark berries, rum and apple juice. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Medium towards full body with appropriate mild carbonation. Alcohol of 10% is perfectly disguised.
Easy to drink Quad with relatively slightly lower complexity. A bit sweet, but still somewhat balanced.

Pours a dark brown color, has an oily viscosity to it, which gets crowned by a dense, light brown head.

Smells of ripe berries, currant, blueberries and dried plum, which get underlined by a subtle note of booze. There is sweet caramel to be found on the nose, as well as balancing bakers chocolate.

Has a lighter mouthfeel, with a proper carbonation level and a slick, slightly boozy, long lasting finish.

Tastes of even riper fruits, accompanied by a good amount of licorice and rock sugar, creating an immediate richness of flavors. Turn a lot earthier then, with well included caramel and a note of dried herbs, together with long discarded ground coffee. Finishes on the sweeter side, with the booze cutting through, adding a light dryness, which goes surprisingly well with the fermented fruit impression.

Well done quad, which builds up a pleasant complexity, benefitting from its stong headed approach.

best drinkable until May 2017; the smell of fermented plums and apples many phenols meet you in the drunk walms the fruit after gently stimulating the phenol and co2

The taste is less sweet then Bernardus 12 and the is less intense then other quadrupel beers.
However, this beer is also a lot cheaper then the other quadrupels.
If you buy this in the Netherlands, you can get a really nice quadrupel beer for around one euro.

L - black, no head. Molten liquorice
S & T - Cognac-y, liquorice, bay leaves
F - smooth, slight alcohol warmth

O - all-round solid beer in the quad style.

I'd recommend it.
