Beer added by: Oxymoron on 01-01-2009

This big, dark ale is brewed using a variety of Belgian specialty malts along with 200 pounds of raisin puree per batch. The resulting flavor is a viscous mix of dark fruit, rum, toffee and raisins balanced with aromatic fruitiness of the Belgian yeast.

I haven't been drinking a lot of quads, this one seems slightly sweeter than average to me, but a very average brew.

Very sweet and needs a bit more time to mellow. Enjoyed a few sips then it was too cloying.
