4.05/5 rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance- very dark brown with white head that persists, very dark brown and at first good carbonation can be seen
Smell- the smell of this beer is just amazing, tons of sweet malts, raisins and lots of malt just really appetizing nose,
Taste- the taste if also very sweet with some roasted notes on the back adding little smokiness keeping things in check, very tasty beer if anything maybe just touch sweet
Mouthfeel- medium to full bodied with little bit of heat on the finish
Drinkability/overall- this beer was a bit sweet to really drink a ton of but that being said did enjoy the flavor profile, was pretty decent first try from the much known lost abbey brand, not sure something would rush for again but if in mood for good quad worth shot, the brightest point for this beer was the nose really good

3.81/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Bottle split into some tulip glasses. Had been cellering it for maybe 8 months before temptation gave way for Canada Day. Appearance is a dark ruby brown, good initial head of tight tan foam, and good lacing and retention.
S - Caramelly raisins, figs, a bit of a leather note, plummy, quite rich with an overall stewed dark fruit character, raisins being the most prominent. Subtle balance.
T - start is very robust, a big play of plums, alcoholic raisins, as it warms it got a bit more rambunctious. Some figgy notes, lemon, dry leather, more plums, and getting really quite dry towards the end. Dark fruit in essence but it is very lively, prunes, raisins and plums as well as lemon, all mixed with a boozy mildly spicy mix. Dry and SOFT finish (margarete c).
M - has an initial soft carbonation, which helps balance some of the heavier alcohol notes, holding on the palate this volatility starts to come forward. A big beer, but balanced quite well enough to pair with a steak dinner. Leaves a dry lingering dark fruit and raisin character.
Good quad, and certainly the raisins were a forefront character in this. Didn't quite hit the mark on balance, as I felt the alcohol was a bit too perceptible once it warmed, still quite tasty and drinkable, but I wouldn't put it in top marks, it falls short of the complexity and balance I would expect in the best belgian quads. Still a quite respectable beer and rather unique in its own regard.

3.55/5 rDev -8.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
On tap at the brewery in San Marcos.
Pours clear but near black with a white head that soon reduces to a ring but leaves some lacing.
Aroma: boozy aroma with some dark roasted grains and spicing.
Flavor: more funky and less fruity than the aroma, but not challenging to drink. Lightly bitter finish.
Feel: medium-full body; medium, lightly crisp carbonation.
O: good, but ABV is too high and complexity is too low.
Serving type: on-tap
