S: Right away you can smell a great deal of spice, oak, and vanilla, as if it were barrel-aged, but clearly this is the doing of a fair amount of booze and heavy handed spice. Beneath this woody veneer lies a depth of dark fruits, mostly cherry, to round it out. Great smell.

T: The taste is almost reverse. Lots of sweet dark fruit up front, which fades out into a sort of mixture of sweet caramel and vanilla with a dry oak finish. Still nice.

O: This is a fine quad, and I would buy again and recommend to anyone.

2011 bottle poured into a Chimay goblet.

The beer pours a cloudy ruby brown color with a layer of off white head on top that fades to a pencil thin layer around the edge of the glass. The smell is sweet with a strong dark fruit and caramel presence. I'm also getting some Belgian spice in the nose. The taste is quite smooth, I'm guess this has smoothed with the aging. I'm getting sweet dark fruit, Belgian spice, and a bubble gum like note. The finish has some chocolate in it as well, but the sweetness doesn't really linger. The carbonation is very fine, honestly it could use a bit more. The finish is quite dry. I'm really enjoying this beer and I'd gladly have another.

A-Black in the glass, more of a deep brown around the edges, two finger tan head and highly carbonated.

S-Lots of darker fruits, plums and spices.

T-Balances is good, rather sweet. Lots of darker fruits along with the spices.

M-Light, nicely carbonated but some alcohol burn.

O-Had side by side with Westy XII, does not hold a candle to it.
