look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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

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

I'd recommend it.

500ml ceramic bottle poured into a goblet. This one is 2016 vintage.

Mildly hazed chestnut brown in color with some copper tinge along the edge, the pour yields one finger of foamy tan head that stays for a while before collapsing to long-lasting bubble film atop and leaving lots of lacing patch and spot on the glass-side.

The aroma has wide varieties of character ranging from dark fruits in kind of prune and black raisin, black grape, dried-fruit, cherry, red wine, licorice, roasted malt, chocolate, dark bread, some vanilla, caramel, some spice and pepper, as well as hint of leafty and earthy hop.

The taste quickly reminds me of red wine/port-like with its grape-ish, berry and dryness. Fruity ester plays a leading role providing notes of prune, dark raisin, black grape, dark berries, and sour cherry. There is licorice too as well as some spiciness and pepper in the middle while same time malt reveals with the characters of dark bread, roasted, caramel, and some chocolate. Subtle hop kicks at the end by only just ghost-like bitterness that is well mingled with all those fruity and sweet profiles.

The palate is not that sticky with medium body and some lively crisp carbonation to carry all the things well under the smooth mouthfeel and dry finish. Quite complex and tasty brew, alcohol is very well hidden beneath its deliciousness.
