this is a quad?! a little off base, but so tasty!

this has "abbey ale" all over it. but with their own twist, I suppose.

dark caramel malts - center stage.... but ridiculously (and deliciously) dry. toasted on the edges, balanced out remarkably by the alcohol, which fails to burn and warm. how did they do that?!

apparently I had this before and gave it high marks... it's really fantastic....one of Southampton's best - of the half dozen or more I've had

still not sure why this brewery doesn't get the (gleaming) notoriety it deserves

A: The beer is clear dark amber in color. It poured with a thin yet dense white head that faded away and left a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of sweet, dark malts in the nose.
T: The overall taste is rather sweet and has flavors of candi sugar and dark malts.
M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Considering its strength, this beer is quite easy to drink because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste.

Served on tap at Mugs Alehouse in Brooklyn, NY

A: Pours a clear amber in color with a half finger tall light beige head. The head reduces to some patches and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate lacing is observed.

S: Lots of dark fruit sweetness along with some caramel and lightly roasted malts.

T: Full on sweetness but in a really good way - lots of dark fruit present and even some hints of candi sugar. There is also a really pleasant maltiness to the beer.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: The alcohol in this beer is really well hidden which is great considering the ABV. I really enjoyed this beer and think it is a really good example of the style. A beer I would enjoy sipping all afternoon long.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Opened a 750ml bottle that is 2 years old and served in Weyerbacher tulip glass.

A-deep mahogany color with a tan bubbly head that sticks around for nice lacing.

S-Raisins!! Dried fruit, molasses, and even a slight oaky note too. I would classify this morre of a high abv dubbel due to the smells.

T-I am in heaven. Taste is awesome, candi sugar, molasses, raisins, and a hint of bourbon. Vanilla and leather coming from the latter. No heat from alcohol and perfectly balanced with sweetness to bitterness. Not dry but not sweet. A perfect beer.

M-medium to high body with a nice bubbly feel on the tongue to keep it not a heavy beer.

I would say my favorite in this category.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

deep dark and thick reddish tinted brown with a large tan colored head of foam rising up from the bottom and cresting about three inches above the top giving it a very full refined look. Very nice retention

big rum soaked raisins that really let you know that you were in for it here. This was balanced by a nice touch of alcohol and thick walloping of yeast that gave off all sorts of fruity like esters. The hints of fig, and pear were big as was the nice amount of sweetness that was added in to try and pull it all together. nice spicy rum like flavor that was intermingled and laced with lots of dark fruits. Nice flavors of raisins, figs, and prunes were evident as was a decent amount of sweetness added to the mix.
