I compare all Quads to St Bernadus abt 12, so this one does not measure up to that benchmark. Putting that aside, this is still a solid drinking experience. Pours a bright, clear orange amber color into my Chimay goblet. Small carbonated white head, not too bad retention for this octane level. I didn't see much in the way of lacing, but there was a film down the side of the glass as long as the head was still there.
Smell is mild dark fruit and caramel malt. Taste includes dark fruit, caramel malt, pepper, a little alcohol burn all mixed up nicely with some bitterness in the finish. Not as complex as some but still a solid drink.
Mouthfeel is not as rich as some. Definitely boozy and not as sweet as you might suspect. The lightness of this beer reminds me of a wee heavy...big flavor and light mouthfeel.
Drinkability is pretty good . Smooth..not too sweet, good flavor and warming alcohol. A nice winter nightcap.

A: loose foam from start to finish....reddish-brown, relatively clear till a few yeasts slipped in....
S: clean ,vodka-like booze... some light, raisin-y fruit.... mellow yet full floral nuance... overall, nice but somewhat subdued
T: super-smooth, velvety-flowery, cookie-ish malt.... brown sugar, granola, background raisin.... superbly mellow and balanced - flavors don't explode, but excellent, nonetheless
M: ethanol-attenuated medium-light body.... subtle, spongy foam wash with each sip... easy-drinking - airy and light around a compact, satiny flow.... fairly restrained swell of boozy warmth midway through each sip
O: one that doesn't bombard the senses with flavor.... gotta let it sit for awhile for it to open up.... even then, dry and quite mellow... nice, if you're digging the subtleties and simply want to quell the swelling in your brain
