4.44/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

330 ml bottle poured into a stemmed goblet glass. Best before date of 1/30/18. Consumed on 11/30/13. Written from notes.

A - Poured brownish purple in color, like the color of prune juice. Single finger of off-white head which mostly fades. Leaves a ring of light foam on sides of glass and a thin foam which covers only part of the beer's surface. Leaves small bubbles on sides of glass when liquid recedes. Any lacing left on sides of glass slowly slides down glass and rejoins beer. Cloudy, looks like material is suspended in liquid, but can't feel that in texture. First pour yielded no sediment. Second pour yielded heavy sediment, purple flakes which mainly remained suspended in liquid and some brown sludge which matriculated to the bottom of the glass. I prefer no sediment, and usually downgrade appearance when this occurs, but had to give some points back on how good it looked on first pour. Had I known better, I could have avoided the majority of the sludge on the 2nd pour.

S - Peach, plum, raison, and pear. Slightly boozy, somewhat like a desert wine.

T - Raisin first and foremost, with some plum. Bitter raisin/prune finish. Dry, light bodied, with low sweetness. ABV not completely hidden, but flavor and mouthfeel deliver higher ABV rather well. Lasting bitterness on tongue.

M - Higher carbonation, but complements taste rather well. Carbonation lasting; does not quickly dissipate from beer. Very crisp.

O - 2nd quad tried and definitely worth a try. Look forward to exploring more of this style.

Beervana. Have been looking for this for several months when I finally found it and snatched it up. Chilled it to about 60°, then poured into a tulip glass. Appearance dark brown with a bit of reddish hue, half inch of fine small bubbled head, and good lacing. Some yeast sediment which aided in dispersing carbonation. Smell is amazing. Great Belgian yeast Aroma, brown bread, dark cherries, and a hint of brown sugar. Taste is amazing. Complex, with dark fruits, cola, toasted brown bread, and grape nuts giving way to a tart cherry and dried plum, with a bit of alcohol heat, but not what you'd expect, considering the ABV. Finished sweet and rich, with a lingering raisin toast flavor that faded towards coffee and burnt sugar, in a good way. I believe that this is the best beer I have ever had, and I've had quite a few trippels and quads, but this is simply outstanding. Wish it was more readily available.

$3.65 bottle from the LCBO.

A - Ruby/Brown colour with nice two finger head of small bubbles.

S - Dates, caramel, port.

T - Caramel, molasses, Belgian yeast, dark fruit, and some sweetness. Very complex and absolutely delicious. For such a high alcohol content this beer does not taste 'boozy' at all. Incredible.

M - Rich and luxurious with great carbonation. Outstanding.

O - This is definitely one of my favourite beers of all-time. I love quads and this is one of, if not the best.
