A - Poured gently into the center of a Chimay goblet. Strong carbonation produced a tall, bubbly head that recedes rather quickly into a skim. The beer is a deep brown color with orange highlights. Cloudy. The beer leaves nice lacing, but it doesn't really stick to the glass.
S - Nice firm aroma. I'm picking up the dark fruits that I expect, but they're stronger and sweeter than some other quads I've tried. I'm even picking up some fairly distinct chocolate notes. Touch of alcohol.
T - Follows the nose. The sweetness of the dark fruit character is amplified and the chocolate comes through on the finish. The alcohol is present here, and also comes through on the finish, but as more of an exclamation point on the flavors, rather than just an alcoholic presence.
M - Rich and luxurious with ample carbonation. Really gives me something to swirl around. The alcohol on the finish also gives the beer a great zip at the end. Finishes clean. No funkiness or lingering sourness. What more could one ask for?
O - Excellent beer. The only fault that I can find with it is that it is too sweet for me. And it's expensive. But it made a great dessert for me last night! I think this site has it right. Don't miss this beer if you have an opportunity to pick one up.
