This beer was totally different from any beer I have ever tasted. It kind of kicked my ass. Very strong alcohol taste. Burned going down like a shot of whiskey. It was good, but not what I'm looking for in a beer. I can see how some other people might like it , but it's not for me.

Served from bomber in snifter.

A. Great color. nice copper,dark red color that lightens towards the head. less than a hlf finger head, the head seems to be reddish from the beer. Great color, and look absolutely beautiful.

S. smells of dark fruit, smells a lot like a Quad!!! amazing, except for the Belgian yeast smell, its all quad smelling.

T. Plums, dark fruit, nutty, spices, not much hops if any.

M. highly carbonated, a slight burn. Overall good.

O. Overall I love, very malty strong ale taste, yet very dark fruity quad taste . a more original taste on the strong ale.

Poured into a wide mouth chalice.

A: Nice deep copper. Thick head, lasts for quite some time. Nearly opaque, no suspended solids. Carbonation is minimal. Has some minor legs.

S: fruit, tart cherries. Dank musty tropical fruit. Has some aromatic hydrocarbon notes. mild malt notes. Mostly fruit notes.

T: strong fruity notes. like a Belgian with more character and attitude. Hazelnut, some undertones of nuttiness, slightly bitter.

M: Creamy as heck. phenolic notes at outbreath. filling. tart fruit. some bitter notes at finish. complex.

O: I like this very much. complex,sweet, bitter, dry... hits all the notes!
