look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
After a careful pour (to keep the black clumps of yeast in the bottom of the bottle), a deep red bordering on a plum colored beer with a thin tan head fills the glass. The film-like head is sticking around as I drink, leaving a little lace on the sides of the chalice.
The aroma of this beer is quite rich with dark fruit and vinous alcohol.
The taste is very similar to the smell. The fruitiness is very apparent; Im reminded of grapes and figs. There is an alcohol spiciness that is much more prominent in this beer than in other Quadruples Ive tried. Something about this beer seems very wine-like. Very good and very unique.
The mouth feel is adequate. Its a bit thinner than I expected. It doesnt have the creaminess of, say, St. Bernardus Abt 12.
The drinkabilty of this beer is excellentso rich and delicious, after one sip I immediately want another.
