Poured from the 33cl bottle into a tulip. Color is deep, dark, murky brown with some tan head that fades quickly. Noticeable amount of yeast floating around. Some soapy lacing.
Smell is somewhat muted yet nice and complex. Molasses, raisins, chocolate, oak and some alcohol. There's also an underlying fruity Belgian yeast smell. Very nice on the nose. Would have scored it perfect if it was just a little more potent.
After the smell I definitely had high expectations for the taste, and I was not disappointed. All the smells carry over to the palate but with more power behind them. The raisin/dark fruit flavor is the most prevalent. Some sweet caramel comes in as well. There's a noticeable alcohol flavor and warmth as it goes down. No hop flavor, as expected from a beer this old, but there is a nice bitterness on the palate.
Carbonation is perfect. Mouthfeel is very smooth and enjoyable. Flavor lingers on your palate for a long time after every sip. Finish is nice and sweet without being cloying. A great example of the style, and worthy of mention among the other legendary quads.

Pours an opaque black with minimal tan head that lingers as a ring of foam.
Plums, raisins, sweet molasses, and a touch of leather form the aroma.
Alcohol, raisins, nutty, toasted malt and light roast form the initial flavor. There's a vinous note at the finish that counters the malt sweetness well. Light cardboard oxidation dries things out in the aftertaste.
Body is fairly full, with a hint of carbonation and warming alcohol lingering.
Very complex brew. All is fairly balanced, between esters, oxidation, and malt sweetness.
Serving type: on-tap
