Pours brown in color with little to no head that is gone after a few moments.
Smell is very rich, dark fruits and some alcohol as well. There are some raisins making there presence known as well.
Wow, this is a good beer. Incredibly complex and smooth. There's a bit of sweetness in the taste. Mouthfeel is medium, but it basically dances in your mouth then runs down your throat. Perfect amount of carbonation, almost perfect on the mouthfeel. This is a pure enjoyment to drink.

Bottle into The Bruery tulip; another bottle grabbed at Brusin' Ales in Asheville.

Pours very dark brown, murky, with a thin but quite persistent creamy light brown head on top. Fantastic explosion of lacing as the glass recedes.

Nose is beautifully rich - densely bready, cocoa and clove with some spicy alcohol, dense figs mixing with a bit of a currant bite.

Taste is more savory than expected - notes of richly spiced sweetbreads, figs and raisins, a lightly tart vinous note that brings to mind red grape skins and currants, very light earthiness on the finish that's got a bit of breadcrust. Alcohol and yeast bring loads of clove and just general spiciness to this one. A savory, almost leathery quality to it, though much more appealing in action than in description. Beautifully balanced between tart and sweet, spicy and savory. Every aspect perfect complementary to the other 3.

Mouthfeel is lightly fluffy, carbonation massages the tongue over a medium-full body that isn't heavy at all. Beautifully done.

Fantastic drinkability. Excellent all-around beer, but the flavor and mouthfeel really bump this one up. Beautiful.

Reviewed 12/24/2008 (bottle):

Pours a clearish reddish brown color body. Suspended particles. Small off-white head. Dark fruity aroma, spices. A nice Belgian aroma. Somewhat musty, maybe coriander or something. Sweet spices, very aromatic. Dark fruity taste, plum and dark grape. Soft mouthfeel. Some smokiness present too. Very tasty, not too overwhelming.

2008 Vintage on-tap at Max's Belgian Beer Fest. Tried directly after the 2005 Grand Reserva.

It looks the same as the Grand Reserva, but with a better head. The smell is much less roasty and lacks some of the mellowed characteristics I loved on the 05 GR. Very Belgian, sweet, sugary, malty. Moving to the taste, this is balanced and light, the taste is more focused on dark fruits, candied sugar, and Belgian yeasts. While it is balanced, it might need some age. Slight harsh boozy finish, medium body low carbonation. Pretty damn drinkable. This was very good, should have had it before the Grand Reserva. it's just not as good.

Vintage 2009

Very dark, just like plums and blood. Thick and viscous with a bubbly tan head.

Raisin, nutty, spicy, milky, chocolaty, caramel, and lots of toffee

Heavy, well thought out flavors. Grape notes are great; buried in the right amount of sweetness. Nothing heavy, just strong robust flavors. Very chewy and nicely heavily carbonated. Smooth, no heat.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! This brew flies sooo far under the radar it's not funny. Amazing Quad!
