review #200, had to bring out a big gun
330ml bottle poured into a snifter.
A- a murky, dark brown with some ruby highlights, a big light tan head dissipates very quickly.
S- big hit of dark belgian sugar grape musk. Some muted ginger and cocoa notes.
T- Rich and malty. Reeeeally sweet. Has the medicinal/belgian sugar flavor that tells you it's a quad. I get the grape musk notes, and there's complexity in the deep malty base. Peppery, cocoa, ginger. Slightly boozy. Taste lingers looong after the sip. Could use a much heavier dose of dark fruits.
M- very smooth, almost creamy, but the quite aggressive carbonation breaks up the party. Suprisingly, it's a touch dry on the finish.
O- Well done, but honestly, just too darn sweet. I would much prefer more dark fruits be present in the taste. Lets be honest though, I'm nitpicking a bit.
