4/5 rDev +2.6%
A - Poured a deep brown with a small head that leaves nice lacing in a chalice.
S - The nose is dark fruit and sweet.
T - Its close to the smell with lots of the fruit, plums, cherry. A bit earthy and of course yeast.
M - Medium heavy body and a finish with a bit of alcohol.
O - Good flavor enjoyed during an afternoon thunderstorm.

From the 650 ml. bottle with an expiration date of February 2014. Sampled on May 29, 2014. So I am beyond the expiration date but it is a Quad and that makes a lot of difference. Served about 50 degrees.
A gorgeous looking mahogany brown-amber with reddish hues and a modest off-white head that fades some but does not disappear.
All those traditional Belgian yeast and candied sugar elements play up big in the aroma with some dark fruits, molasses, and spice to round it out. No booze.
Medium to full body.
The taste is wonderfully roasted sweet maltiness with Belgian sugar, brown sugar, and.or molasses in there to sweeten it even more. A toasty biscuit feel too. Mild and low hop finish. The alcohol cannot be tasted but it certainly gets into my head. Drink slowly and enjoy.

A - Great pour, with a dark auburn tint to it. Thick foam with quickly dissipates as you pour.
S - Refreshing crisp smell, almost like ripening fruit.
T - Really sweet taste that lingers on your tongue. Not overwhelming, yet very refreshing.
M - Not heavy or thick, but it has a quality to it that hangs around your tastebuds.
O - Really nice ale, from great brewers. Pretty Things has put out another winner.

Poured into tulip
A: Pours a deep mahogany with hints of ruby when held to light with a large, creamy, khaki, 3 finger head
S: Fruity and musty attic aromas, with hints of earth and clove.
T: Rich plum, apricot, and cherry flavors up front with slight funky Belgian yeast tones underneath. Barnyard flavors are there, but very subtle. Very little in the way of hops, but a slight old-world hop bitterness lasts in the finish along with black cherry tones.
M: Slightly viscous body with mild to low carbonation.
O: This is an excellent example of an American produced quad. Fruity and rich; this beer is a great after dinner sipper. Pretty Things hits a home run with Baby Tree. If you’re a fan of dark Belgian or Trappist beers, this is definitely worth picking up.

A - Poured into the center of a St. Bernardus chalice. The beer takes on a deep brown hue, with a surprisingly thin head. The head recedes to pretty much nothing after a while, leaving little to no lacing on the glass. I noticed just a little bit of visible carbonation. Tough to spot through this dark, somewhat cloudy beer.
S - Nice aromas that I associate with a quad, albeit a little lighter. Dark fruit is dominant, but there is also a little indistinct sweetness.
T - Again, all the tastes that one would expect, and follows the nose fairly closely. Dark fruit again dominates, the sweetness is a little more distinct here, mild, but something like caramel. There is also a touch of alcohol on the finish.
M - The weakest area of this beer for me. Much thinner than I would expect, and without real supporting carbonation. Finishes clean. Slight dryness and alcohol heat.
O - Nice beer. It doesn't stack up with the best, but I certainly wouldn't turn one down.
