Bottle (2010 vintage) acquired at 6-and-Save for a hefty price ($12.50), poured into my Ommegang snifter. This is my first experience with anything from De Struise.

A: Bottle cracks with a loud *pffft*. Interesting.

Pours a deep dark murky shade of brown (almost black? Odd for a Belgian Quad) with a large, lively, but oddly off-brown head that has an almost ruby-red tint to it.

S: I'm picking up on a hint of cherries, figs, dates, and maybe even a bit of black licorice? There is a hint of fruitiness here to. As I indicated above, I think it's cherry but I'm not 100%

T: It's cherry. The red tint in the head and the notes in the nose make sense now. Beyond cherry, there is a *thickness* here that reminds me of molasses. Chocolate undertones are noticeable as well. Typical dark fruits are also present, but a bit overwhelmed by the strong cherry/molasses/licorice flavor here.

This is a unique take on the style.

M: A thick, frothy, brew. Very viscous. Lots of sticky goodness left behind on the finish.

D/O: The cherry-quad combo reminds me of Three Philosophers, but this beer is thicker and more licorice/molasses than the offering from Cooperstown.

I enjoyed this beer, but I found the thick molasses to be a bit detracting as I worked through the bottle. As such, I deduct 0.5 from "overall" and score a solid 4.0

11.2oz bottle 2010 vintage poured into snifter, reviewed on 11/16/11.

A: Pours a deep dark reddish brown with nice light brown head. Good retention and leaves some lacing around glass.

S: Lots of dark malt and dark fruit with some spices and warming alcohol. Some fruity esters add another layer of complexity. Overall this smells fantastic!

T: Everything in the aroma and then some. Dark malt, raisins and figs, brown sugar, molasses and spices with some alcohol and fruity esters. Everything that I want in a quad mingling together in perfect harmony.

M: Rich, smooth and creamy full body with moderate carbonation, absolutely perfect.

O: Extremely delicious quad, right up there with Westy 12. Highly drinkable with some nice warming for a cold fall/winter night. A shame that this isn't distributed here or I would be drinking this far more often!

Bought a 11.2 FL. OZ. bottle of this from Flamingo Bowl in St. Louis, MO for $8. Poured from the yellow labeled bottle w/ a ship & 2011 above it into a 16+oz Tulip Glass. Has LOT 2015190511- 24FF on the side.

Aroma- Has a strong malty and rich aroma with tons of cherries that pop out at me. This is a great aroma with tons of sweet character! Enjoyed!

Appearance- Pours a .5 finger head that dies quicker than should. Has a dark brown colored body with tons of ingredient within. Leaves no lacing behind but okay with this. Just like out to sea, the ocean leaves nothing behind...

Flavor- Has a great malty and strongly sweet taste from the beginning and then has a nice boozy finish. Hops are moderate and has a good bitterness that blends nicely.

Mouthfeel- Medium-Full Bodied, Light Carbonation, Smooth, and then has a huge boozy bite at the finish. Can't get much better than this!

Overall Impression- Reminds me of a light barleywine almost with all of its alcohol and booziness. The mouthfeel couldn't get any better but Fisherman's Ale?!?! What does this mean exactly? I enjoyed a ton and you should too! Get your hands on a bottle.
