A big, dark ale with a thick, bubbly head. The nose is of strong dark fruits and some clean alcohol mixed with esters and a subtle smokey phenolic character. The taste is similar, this particular bottle has a stronger alcohol burn than previous bottles I had. Carbonation pop up front with a nice dark raisiny malt to follow with phenolic fruit and esters, touch of smoke, some peppery yeast, and as it finishes some sweet pilsner malt comes in. The mouthfeel is crisp on the front and drying on the back.
Overall, this is an exceptional beer, one of the best Quads out there. Maybe a little expensive, afterall I could get a 750ml bottle of Chimay Grand Reserve for a dollar more where I live, but it is well-deserved of its praise.

A : Dark brown. Poured with a lively half inch head that quickly disappeared. Looks like what I'd come to expect the style to look like, but nothing remarkable different.
S: New to trying put names to smells in beers, but I get some plum and what I'll call other dark fruit, and a breaded smell. Not an explosion of different smells to me, but enjoyable none the less.
T: Taste follows the nose without the bread, with the alcohol being the main addition. Smelled a little better than it tasted to me which I guess means the alcohol did not benefit the taste.
M: Bubbly effervescent as I'm accustomed to and enjoy with the style and enjoyable. Not experienced enough doing reviews to nail down why I know I prefer the Westy 12 mouthfeel to this.
O: A great example of the style, and a quality brew. Overall ranking likely impacted by this not being my favorite style of beer.
