Poured from 330mL bottle into Ommegang tulip
A - Opened with a POP and poured a deep dark ruby reddish brown with a generous bubbly head and lively carbonation. Lacing slipped down the glass with a little bit clinging to the side.
S - Dark fruit medley. Apples jump out first followed by grape, fig and malty sweetness with a hint of alcohol.
T - A very well balanced medley of spices with some dark fruit flavors. The flavor has a lot going on and is very complex, but very even tasting and the alcohol content is hardly noticeable compared to other quads I've had (although you can certainly tell that it is there). Really great example of the style...strong and subtle at the same time. I'm a big fan of Ommegang's 3 Philosophers and this beer is a little less in your face which is really nice.
M - Smooth and thick. Very rich and syrup like with good carbonation and a tingly moist bready after taste. The alcohol is hidden really well in this one.
D - Very nicely balanced quad...extremely drinkable and delicious.
