A delicious dark ale, with a pronounced musty aroma and a lot of esters that make you want more and more of it. Fairly sweet, with notes of molasses and burnt sugar. Full bodied and with moderate smooth carbonation. A really nice treat of a beer.

Big pour produce a big fluffy head which hung around, left lots of lacing and a film.

Nose is yeasty and a bit funky with some fruit - unusual.

Palate is a it warm - some fruit and a bit funky.

Overall a bit of a miss this one - worth trying if you like the style as I do - otherwise avoid.

Sampled from a 0.33l bottle (€5.20) at Gollem in Antwerp on 27SEP16.

Poured a deep, clear chestnut-mahogany color. Head was very thin and beige, with minimal lacing. Nose had lots of fruit - especially grapes and raisins - though it was not overly strong. Had a medium body and feel on the tongue.

It tasted fruity but with a bit of a sourish aspect to it. No one particular aspect stood out here; should have some more sweetness as well as dark fruity characteristics. There was some plum and candi sugar, but mostly I felt it more of a plain Dubbel than a Quad...

Pours a slightly translucent brown red with one finger thick, airy foam which quickly settles to a ring and leaves no lacing. Smells sweet; there's banana and dark fruit, plus some stout-like chocolate/coffee smell. It's a bit boozy but not a lot considering the high ABV. Taste is sweet, dark fruit, chocolate, a bit smokey and spicy. There's more alcohol here but it's still discreet. Oh, and some apple too? It's pretty faint. It's prickly, with a rich, warm body, and kinda sticky. Pretty easy drinking.

I'm surprised at how well hidden the ABV is; if I didn't know better, I'd put it at 8% or 9%, rather than 12%. A bit too sweet for my tastes, but not by much.

A: creamy 2 finger head, good retention
S: sweet malt and plum, pleasant but could be stronger
T: exquisite, easily one of my top 5 quads, hits a genuine sweet spot of flavor, very sweet with plum, fig and dark fruit but also has a distinct hoppiness to it uncharacteristic of a typical Belgian.
M: milky, creamy
O: had this for the first time in philly, I've been waiting a long time for it to make it to my area, every bit as good but in a different way, rich but less hoppy than I recalled, in my top 5 quads for sure, a must try

Pours a murky brown color with a medium size tan head that fades fast. Either a high level of carbonation or I shook the bottle a bit while wrestling with the cork because it foamed up on me and I lost about 1/6 of the bottle, No lacing on the glass. Smell is good sweet malt, dark fruit (raisins and plums) and some candi sugar. Taste is malty, sweet with a strong fruit presence. Didn't notice the Belgian yeast flavors although I saw some sediment in the glass. Not particularly spicy either but still a rich and satisfying flavor. Mouthfeel is rich and surprisingly smooth, a little alcohol burn but not much. This is a good but not great Quad.

L: gives of a dark mahogny color. A bug top of creamy head when pours in the glass. Good lacings on the glass.

S: dark malts ,caramel.dried dark fruits .spices and herbs like cloves and coriander. Some floral hints .

T&F: much as the aroma.very creamy and well balanced.a warm feeling almost immediately after the first sip. Most of the taste are well balanced aftertaste gives of a comfortable spicy bitterness,but maybe a little to much of it
Else the beer has all I want in a quadruple.easy drinkable and enjoyable

O: a delicious quadruple, I liked it a lot . It did it.s job and was very enjoyable. I sure would like trie this one again and also the other beers from Landtsheer

Served in a tulip glass right from the bottle.

Appearance: Dark amber with an off-white head, rose initially to about two finger's length. Drops after two or three sips and settles with no lacing whatsoever.

Smell: Yeast scent, leaves quick after first sniff.

Taste: Nice sweet complex raisins. Hint of yeast and light cinnamon. Sour feel, like a bit of rye with of vanilla.

Mouth: Sticky feel, not super sticky just enough for t to linger around.

Overall: Very good brew, very easy to find and price is very friendly. To pass this up would be a mistake. Salud!
