330ml bottle poured into a snifter

P- poured at 48 degress F; comes out of the bottle just about black in color (no translucence), with no official head to speak of (just a little bit of off-white foam capping); no lacing
N- medium-strength; sweet dark fruits mixed with alcohol; upon further investigation, dark sugars and toasted malt come out as well
T- one smooth flavor profile; dark fruits (raisins & figs, particularly) greet the tongue; rich, dark sugars are prominent in finish; toasted malt plays a great supporting role throughout; some grape tartness comes out in the aftertaste; perfectly balanced
MF- medium-bodied, with soft-medium carbonation; chewy finish
O- my expectations for this brew were high, and they were definitely met; one solid Quad, rivals Rochefort 10 for the position of favorite within the style

2011

Pours a hazed dark brown color with amber hues as well as some yeasty sediment.

Aroma has berries, malt, belgian yeast, date, brown sugar, alcohol, just a faint hint of hops. Smells like a big old ale, and just a touch of oxidation,

The taste is big and malty, juicy dark fruits, twigs, simple syrup, and alcohol. Slight suggestions of nuts, cocoa and port wine.

Light bodied for the strength, not as full as I would expect, with a sharp, drier finish. The beer is moreish, and smooths out as it warms slightly and as the drinker becomes accustomed.

Overall, not quite a behemoth, but not small by any means. A very drinkable quad and worth some time in the cellar. The age on this brought out the port flavor, if it was a bit older I bet the vinous qualities would only continue.
