Extra supplied by Lunch in a trade, thanks!

Drank this several times and finally got around to reviewing it. Poured into St Bernardus goblet to savor during NFC wildcard game.

A--Pours deep reddish brown. Some lacing and has plenty of carbonation.

S--dark cherry is the biggest smell that I get from it, I like that.

T--Figs and cherry stick out the most to me, this is very tasty beverage. The alcohol is not real noticeable, which makes this a dangerous brew.

M--Silky and lots of carbonation

D--Another excellent brew by Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel. This is a favorite style of mine and I highly recommend this brew.

Got in an in person trade with Patchmaster. This is my first taste of a Quad beer. Poured 12 oz. into snifter.

A- Pours dark murky, hazy, deep amber color. A little lighter more red around the edges. Half finger creamy head, drops down to thin cap rather quick.

S- Nice full flavor aromas. Dark fruits most of the way, plum, raisin, maybe some cherry in there. Very sweet smell.

T- Very nice flavor. Better than the nose led on. Sweet fruit flavors at the beginning. Cherry, plum, maybe grape fruit flavors all fused together well. Leads into slight sour/tart flavor, but balances nicely. Very interesting flavors here, but pretty enjoyable.

M- Medium body with moderate carbonation in mouth. Tartness sticks with you after each drink.

D- Wasn't really sure what to expect with my first quad. Very interesting flavors make you want to keep drinking. Very nice balance here. Would like to compare it to some other quads though. The higher abv is nicely masked, which makes it pretty drinkable.

Pours a clouded brown with a creme head. Nose is perfume and dough tones. Not overly complex, and slightly leaning towards one dimensional. Flavor is floral, dough, touches of fig fruits and slight sweetness. An alcohol burn is noticeably present. More so as time goes on and it warms. Feel is thick enough on liquid. Carbonation is middle of the road and about what I would hope to see. Overall not too shabby. The alcohol is a bit too much IMO, especially for a lower abv quad. But it definitely works for the style as many interpretations of quads have a difficult time doing so.
