A classic Quadrupel with a twist.
Sadly, the twist isn’t the addition of figs, raisins, dates, vanilla and orange zest.
No, the twist is that Browar Nepomucen have managed to make a dark, alcohol heavy beer as thin and flat as dish water.
In fact you can see how flat it is from the photograph.
There’s no body here, no depth, the malts are a limp digestive biscuit, and fig roll disappointment, and the added extras play almost no part in the overall feel and flavour of the beer.
You can smell the vanilla in the aroma, but there is absolutely nothing of note as you drink, save for the fact that this dark brown liquid feels oily and slick, unpleasant and very very boring.
Most of it went down the sink with a sigh of relief.
