Wow, smells like I'm pouring bananas! The beer is quite dark with a fine, almost creamy head. It looks to be deep red when shown to the light, and nearly opaque on the table.

The initial pop of bananas has been subdued a bit, but other smells, such as the hops, are coming through. A faint fruitiness can be rustled up with enough force.

The taste is incredibly smooth, especially at the ABV of 10.4%. This can't be that strong, can it!? The fruit on mid-palate really smooths the drink out and gives it subtle, but not subdued flavor.

Mouthfeel is pleasant and balanced. A great beer to sip on at the dinner table.

This is one of a few "pricey" beers that I would definitely recommend to my friends. The combination of all the senses really makes this beer special in my eyes.

My eager young cadet Beer Advocate shared this beer with me that he bought. I told him I am very hit or miss with quads so better to split a bottle then do a flat out trade as it might be risk of drain pour. So this one was a definite hit. For over 10% it is very smooth and not boozy at all. Very buttery mouthfeel. Lots of fruit complexity mixed in here with the usual raisin, fig flavor etc. I find this quad as well made as some of the best from Belgium. Very high caliber quad. Thanks for sharing with me my eager young Beer advocate!
