Bottled recently.

Toasted caramel color with a fleeting etched surface with light tan foam. Smells like cherry cough syrup with some bits of cocoa and coffee, a little marshmallow and yeast as well. Very sweet, cherry, some nougat, some medicinal syrup, not really feeling this. Medium on thin for the style with tight, clean carb and a semi dry finish. One and done here

22 oz bottle. Pours ruby amber with a big creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet toffee malts, with dark fruits and some roasted alcohol.

The flavor is sweet toffee malts and dark fruits with a lot of harsh alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a sweet boozy mess. It tastes a bit like their dubbel with a ton of alcohol.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: Medium amber with a thin brownish head, splotchy lacing. Very light in color for a quad, resembles a dubbel more.

Smell: Dark fruits with a good amount of cherry, dates and raisin. Some malty sweetness, but no apparent roast or coffee.

Taste: Dark cherry at the forefront, not tart as I would've hoped for, and I get absolutely no coffee. Tastes reminiscent of cherry cough syrup...

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation and a slight alcohol burn. Getting through a whole bottle of this would be a chore.

Overall: Glad this is out of my fridge and I can't say that I'm a fan. Maybe it was a bad bottle, but I got none of the coffee and very little traditional Belgian quadrupel flavors...Unfortunately much of this bottle was a drainpour

Well, I'll be. This one has a pink hue in the foam, which billows up nicely upon pouring, but settles to a collar with haste. Sticky lacing, sugary.

Aroma has a slight cherry cough syrup-ness to it. Some booze. Subtle sweet bread. Nothing powerful or interesting, really.

Flavor is cherry candy, too much of it. Sweet cherry and booze. Is this a quad or some sort of kriek? Perhaps a bit of spice from the yeast, but it is just beat up and left for dead. I can't get past the cherry. There are other flavors in there, but they are muddled.

Feels alright, still not zing or softness of some quads. One dimensional beer. Couldn't take this one, poured into the bushes.

Bottle, 22 oz. etched with some crazy stuff. Lips of Faith series. Poured into a large wine glass. Pour is a hazy brown and light mahogany in the light. A half inch of foam offers decent retention which settles to moderate lace.

Aroma of crystal malts to a degree, and a touch of cherry in the mix. Some yeast and hop notes are present yet are crushed by the added fruit. Taste follows the nose, with cherry licqueur being dominant. Lacks depth with regard to malt structure yet seems fairly well attenuated for q 10% brew.

Taste is sweet and a bit boozy. A Quad in strength but surely not in character. Even with warming and exposure this beer leaves a bit to be desired...
