This thick and heavy looking brew came to me in a fine tulip glass. It had a tall head, beige and lingered until the end. It's garnet brown color made a striking contrast.

In the nose I find dark fruits such as figs and raisins. Some spices also. Smells sweet too with a hint of alcohol.

Drinks with some essence of cheeries and berries. Candied sugar weaves it's way through the beer. Malty sweetness. I think I taste some oak high lights I don't know.
Flows heavy across the palate with a smooth sweetness. hints of alcohol peek through too.
A well made beer thats easy to drink

Pours a deep dark purple red. Not quite stout in color but definitely Belgian dark ale.

Smells fantastic, plums, raisins, dried fruit and molasses, touch of alcohol smokiness. Belgian yeast is also present.

Tastes of definite dark fruits, black cherry and raisins with fig. Mixed into a vat of oaky chocolate. Some spicy notes from the yeast poke through along with a touch of molasses. Somewhat sweet yet highly balanced with a touch of its abv showing. Still I can't tell its 10%

Mouthfeel is perfect, creamy round and smooth.

Overall, I'm loving this one. Seems age does this 2009 version well. I'm already planning on finding more. A highly recommended try if you like quads and dark ales.

Pours a semi-hazy, dark brown body with a wispy, khaki colored head. As it recedes I get some decent spotty lacing.

Aromas begin with a melange of dark malts and toasted oak wrapped up in a luscious, sweet-smelling raisin/plum syrup. Medium-dark fruit and a light cola like rooty, spiciness.

The tastes begin with toasted brown bread soaked in caramel, tangy plums, golden raisins and an herbal, almost root beer spiciness. As it warms you get a little more of the Belgian esters from the Belgian yeast.

The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with moderate to light carbonation. Finish is dryish and semi-sweet. Finish is farily dry for such a big beer but dont get me wrong there is some candy sweetness here as well.

Overall this is a great Quad from a great brewer. I really need to sample this, the original and the Grand Reserva at the same time because I really can't recall a great difference in flavor but a horizontal tasting will hopefully alleviate that. Probably my favorite (and decently available) brewery of the Quad style.

I had the 2009 at Torst.

This comes in a rich dark brown, black color with a small head.

There is a big bready plum aroma. It's somewhat mellow without big booze and of dark fruits.

The flavor is similar to the aroma. It has a clean finish with this wonderful fresh pop despite being barrel aged. There's burnt caramel and sugar flavor. It has some prot wine characteristics. It really is one of the best quads I've had.

The mouthfeel is what I love because it has such a creamy smooth character.

330 mL bottle poured into a De Struise chalice. 2008 bottle.

Appearance - Deep garnet body that doesn't produce a head until the pour is almost complete. Chunks of sediment start flowing in and suspend themselves in the reddish fluid. The head is fleeting and results in just a lopsided collar of khaki foam.

Smell - Dark fruit dominated aroma. Brown sugar, caramel, all that stuff. Lacking the earthy component of regular Pannepot. Reminds me of Pannepeut.

Taste - Dark fruit flavors abound here as well and build to a slight cola flavor. The oak builds as the fruity sharpness does as well. It culminates in a bite that covers up much of the depth of the malt flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation and that bite lingers on the palate. Not sure what to call it. Tannins maybe?

Overall - Well it's Pannepot so it's still a great beer, but I guess I'm just disappointed that the oak seems to have cut out the great flavors instead of augmenting them.
