4.09/5 rDev -1%
Pours a very dark brown with a tan head that dissipates quickly.
Aroma very sweet with a noticeable alcohol presence.
Taste is smooth, strong, and warming. Very sweet, picking up on dark fruit, caramel, and honey. Not getting much Belgian spice, I think the alcohol overpowers it.
Definitely leaves a lingering sweetness.
Overall, a very nice Quad but could maybe use more of a balance between alcohol and spice.

4.7/5 rDev +13.8%
Sampled tonight on 4/17/14. Bought a single 12.7 ounce bottle late last week. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.
Pours a pitch black in color with a thin beige head that leaves some streaky lacing when sipped. The aroma is very pleasant of sweet dark fruits, brown sugar and roasted malts. The taste is...FANTASTIC with a lot going on! ALL the flavors mentioned above coming through with more taste as well of some caramel malts. Really great flavor with no bitter aftertaste and goes down easy. By far the BEST Sierra Nevada brew I had.
