11.2oz bottle poured into a goblet. Best by 6/22/16.
A: Pours with a one-finger off-white head. Gorgeous pillowy head with consistently tight bubbles all around. Terrific lacing and head-retention. Body is a deep, deep brownish-red.
S: Interesting aroma. Smells big and boozy but not dominated by the usual Belgian yeast/dark fruit combo. There’s a spicy medicinal note that really stands out as well as some chocolate cake? Then there’s some noticable alcohol-soaked dark fruit and grain plus a bit of caramel malt.
T: So interesting. It’s just as much spice as it is fruit. Starts sweet with the yeast totally integrated so that it’s almost non-existent. There’s raisin, juniper, some woodiness and strangely the chocolate cake is still there. Alcohol is present and with the juniper it gives it a gin-like dimension.
M: Medium body with a fairly dry texture. Finishes with a modest alcohol burn. Carbonation is soft but present.
O: This is truly a unique quad unlike any that I’ve had. It’s not a slight variation on the rest, but a near complete re-write of the book. Very impressive.
