Poured into La Trappe chalice. Pours a clear caramel colored brown with a bit of an orange tinge. My bottle was new according to the printed date, and my glass was cleaned to the standards I have been taught, but I only observed about a finger of cream colored head that receded within a minute into a foamy sheet that clings to the glass. (I say this out of surprise after what I have read, but whatever, this is my review.) Smell was hinting of dates but overpowered by the banana pudding that was much more pronounced than I expected, and a finish of alcohol. Taste was hinting of dates, spice, and dark chocolate, but was again dominated with banana pudding. Had a a somewhat pronounced but not unwelcome or overpowering bitterness going down and a very slight earthiness in the aftertaste. The alcohol is definitely deceptive, and did not make its presence easily known, especially for a beer with such a high ABV. It was velvety smooth from the moment of sip to swallow, with only a slight hint of carbonation on the tongue. Overall a very enjoyable experience that makes me wonder if my senses are more sensitive to banana pudding than the average person. I find that I don't have as much experience with quads as I would like, and as a result I may update my review score later.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a clear brown tinged red-orange with mild floaties and a thick cream colored head, half inch of which sticks to the end; sheet of substantial lace down the glass. Smell: toasted date bread, caramel, raisin, notes of red apple and cherry; just a little earthiness. Taste: brown sugar, dates, raisin toast, notes of banana pudding, clove, earth. Pretty standard but well done.
