3.4/5 rDev -13.9%
From 12 oz bottle to snifter
A: Mahogany in color, opaque. Not much of head to speak of, the suds that do exist speckle the glass with lacing.
S: The nose is ester-y, with banana and cherry notes prominent. The booze helps to dry the palate and it's volatiles propels a slight hop snap. Toffee-malts surround and envelop the bouquet, as a caramelly sweetness lingers.
T: Ester-y again, but there are distinct notes of carob and molasses that were undetected in the nose. The booze seems subdued on the palate as well, as malty sweetness dominates. Touches of oak, ripe cherry and phenols, but the flavor profile is fairly one-dimensional for a quad. Short finish for the style, sweet.
M: Chewy and viscous...fortunately th brew is more carbonated than it appeared.
A solid big Belgian beer, fairly easy to drink. But when you're reaching for a quad you're usually in the mood for something with layered complexity, which is lacking in this brew.

4.19/5 rDev +6.1%
Picked up a single from Total Wine in mid-August for $4.99. I believe it was bottled in 2010 per the notches.
Beer poured brown with a nice off white head on the initial pour.
Nose has hints of dark fruits and belgian yeasts.
Taste is dark fruits, nutmeg, slightly sweet.
Mouthfeel is near perfection, silky smooth with each sip.
Overall this is a very nice beer with 3 years on it. Not sure how it is fresh but definitely try this with some age on it!

4.03/5 rDev +2%
A very murky medium brown. Almost no head - just enough to stick to the edge of the glass. No lacing at all.
Delicious smell. Fruity - prunes and apricot. The aroma of a fresh bear claw pastry.
A heavy taste that is sharper than the aroma. Spicy taste of the strange combination of nutmeg and thyme. Prunes and raisins. Then the taste of dark chocolate that resolves to licorice. Bitter hay aftertaste.
Medium slightly oily feel. Chalkiness in the aftertaste. Definitely needs more carbonation.
A well balanced quad with very complex, layered taste. More hops that most quads.
