A: Pours out a dark mahogany color with a thin disappearing head. The bottle definitely was under pressure so I just think this is how the beer was made.
S: Smell floral, syrupy, caramel, spicey and some dark ripened fruits. Which fruits I don't know but it smells very complex.
T: Taste is fruity, spicey with a very hoppy aftertaste. Not much alcohol burn for a big beer, actually quite smooth.
M: Mouthfeel is pretty smooth as I mentioned before.Perhaps the disappearing head was done on purpose?
O: It's been a while since I've indulged in a quadrupel and this reminds me what I've been missing. Something decadent about a big bold quad with lots of deep caramel malts, big floral hops and spicy aftertastes. Reminds what I love about good beer.

This pours a ruddy raisin brown color with light foam. There’s a bit of stone fruit and plums on the aroma, with an earthy estery profile. I find the flavor to be sweetish but not cloying, with some plums and figgy notes. Comes off smooth and almost velvety.
Serving type: on-tap
