4.41/5 rDev +11.6%
Bottle purchased from Oliver's in Albany, NY.
Pours a murky dark brown, coca-cola like, into my St. Bernardus chalice. 1.5 inch head. A little bit of lacing but nothing significant.
Smells like a typical quad- the dark fruits (plums/raisins), some spicing, and yeast.
The taste is pretty similar. Very strong raisin flavor, cloves, along with the typical Belgian yeast flavors. There's some brown sugar and vanilla flavors I'm picking up as well, and some slightly grassy hop aromas.
Full bodied mouthfeel, low carbonation.
Another good entry from the Dieu de Ciel lineup.

Pours a hazy medium brown, dense cream colored head that coats the glass on the way down. Smell: brown sugar and brown bread note upfront, then pear, into caramelized sugar back. Taste: caramel, soft pear, sugary red plum, pecan-y note. Full-ish body, creamy feel, fair amount of alcohol cutting through.

A: A clear brick red that shines with a ruby red glint. A thin ring of sand beige bubble rims the glass in the glass. It does form a thin cap of foam when swirled but again settles out to a thin ring.
S: Big juicy red dry fruits with plums, raspberries,tart cherries, cassis, some warmth of the alcohol followed by sweet spices and slight yeasts buffer the end.
T: Caramel malts with notes of fried bananas & sweet spices and raisins, belgian yeast finished with warm alcohol esters.
M: Medium bodied with a tight hug to the tongue. Low carbonation supports the sweet malts and allows the flavours to shine.
O: Wonderful drinking beer that stands well on it's on and is suggestive of a low hopped barley wine. Would be terrific with a rich chocolate torte and a warm fireplace enjoyed slowly.

12oz. Bottle, medium pour Teku.
A: Reasonably clear pour, medium ruby-brown. Translucent, light tan head. Nice lace, small bubbles.
S: Big Belgian spice. Westmalle Dubbel comes to mind. Banana esters, bitter orange. Nice bouquet.
T: Sweetness, light caramel, toffee. Slight toasted notes. Mix of lighter stone fruits, apricot. Yeasty phenols, Some alcohol burn. Missing some complexity of classic quad examples.
M: A little clingy. Medium full body, reasonably drinkable, but missing a level of smoothness.
O: Somewhat underwhelming given previous experience with du Ciel. Good, but a little punchy up front and not a lot of follow through. Bottle says best after laying down for 6 months, probably true.
