Pours a surprisingly DARK hazy brown. I mean DARK. I didn't know a quad could look like this. Smell is typical yeasty smell of Belgian beers with a maltier tone.
The TASTE was a punch in the face. I was not expecting this. It was a punch in the face of dark, rotting fruits. ALL of them! It was a punch in the face of yeast. It had a MUCH maltier backbone than I was expecting. This stuff is like Belgian beer extract. The only thing it WASN'T a punch in the face of, sadly, was alcohol. The bite is a lot less subdued than in most quads I've tried. Well hidden under layer upon layer of dark, fruity flavours and thick essence of malted barley. I like flavourful beers, but this is maybe too much for me. It's so sweet, and with such, a full body, and so much yeast. I mean, this is an interesting experience, but for the price tag, I definitely can't go back for this again. It may be considered an ancient standard of the style, but this is crazy with the flavours. Under some rotting apricot flavour, I just got a whiff of some coriander, cinnamon and maybe anise. To add to my overwhelming experience. I'm not sure what to do about this insane concoction. I know it's a classic, but it's so intense that it's hard to get through my 11 ounces, even. If you want something that took more ingredients in one bottle than American beers put in a keg, try this out. It will blow your mind.

What really put me over the edge, though, was too much of a brown sugar/molasses type flavour. I like sweet beers, but that brown sugary flavour is just cloying.

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.
