4.3/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
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.

4.13/5 rDev -5.3%

2011 vintage. Lot 2015190511-24FF.
Pours an opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, molasses, dark fruit, spice, and slight cardboard aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, toffee, molasses, fruit, and roast flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness and a slight alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with an interesting mix of aromas and flavors all around.
