Amazing beer! It's sweet, dark roasty fruit dominates the palate. You can taste the subtle oak flavor making this a perfectly balanced Quad. This is Pennepot on steroids!The beer hides the ABV very well making this brew very drinkable.This beer is Legendary! its just so smooth. This beats Abt 12 which is tough to do.
Bottom Line: World Class Quad!

330ml bottles. 2008 and 2009 vintages poured side by side.
A: Both vintages pour a murky mahogany woody brown. 08 definitely has less carbonation, but a thin dark tan collar briefly stuck around. The 09 has a nice dense finger of foam that slowly faded into a fuzzy film and collar.
S: The 09 is definitely a bit brighter and sweeter smelling, and the 08 has a few hints of musty damp oxidation, but other than that the noses are pretty similar with scents of dark fruits, raisins, leather, pipe tobacco and mild spice.
T: Both are actually fairly similar but the 09 flavors are a bit brighter. Powdery chocolate and dark fruits dominate, especially candied dates, raisins, and figs. Vanilla, oak, spice, nutmeg, and slight caramel, come through as well with a surprisingly earthy hoppy finish, slight sticky booziness, and slight bitterness.
M: Fairly similar as expected on both vintages. Maybe a bit more carbonation on the 09. Thick body, chewy mouthfeel, heavy and smooth, very soft carb, mellow, well-aged, and integrated.
O: Age has done wonders. 08 is amazing but I like the brighter (yet still very mellow) flavors of the 09 better. Both are some of the best quads in the world.
