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.

12oz. bottle served in my ST tulip. Poured the color of cola with a two inch frothy, off-white head. Head settles into a solid cap with thick bands of lacing. Nose is rather mild and difficult to describe - slightly vinous and malty with a hint of spice in the mix. Some booziness comes out up front, followed by the wine-like character revealed in the nose, dark fruit and spice. Mouthfeel is just shy of medium-bodied with a pleasant, consistent background carbonation. Nice abbey ale that changes its character as it warms.

A: After a vigorous pour I was only able to get about 1.5 fingers of head. Light tan with fairly good retention. Big bubbles abound. Color is a really murky brown with lighter tan streaks. A nice layer of tan fluffy head persists throughout.

S: Smells very much like a quad! It has that almost clean quality from the Belgian yeast. Lots of caramel and some dark fruitiness. Maybe just a hint of warm spices.

T: This beer is really sweet! And actually a little sour?? I may be imagining it but I feel like I'm getting just a hint of sour in this. Other than that it is all rich dark fruits with caramel and booze. Really intense and really a sipper. The yeast definitely comes out and so does the candi sugar. Alcohol isn't nearly as present as I thought it would be.

M: Medium slick body with good carbonation.

O: All around a decadent beer. I really enjoy it and I can't get over this sour note I taste... is that on purpose or did I buy a bottle that's just a little contaminated?? Who knows but the result is good.
