This is the actually the first quad I've tasted, and, unable to get the #1 in the world, I've "settled" for the Rochefort 10.
A - Deep and dark. Looks like Coca-Cola. Head is big and stays for a while. Brown streaks from the sediment laced through the bubbles. A surprising amount of sediment hovering in the liquid - being a newbie, it's a little overwhelming.
S - Sweet and fruity, cinnamon and raisin notes. The alcohol stands out, but in a warm way.
T - An amazing complexity of flavor! Sweet and warming, with no bitterness. Caramely sweetness, fruits (plum and raisin are strong), a subtle streak of rummy spiciness. The alcohol blends in perfectly with the flavors, not overly strong or surprising - can't believe it's over 11%.
M - Very small bubbles. Rolls around on the tongue nicely. An amazing finish, sweet and clean. The alcohol lingers in the mouth warmly after the swallow with strong sugar and caramel notes.
D - Nothing about this beer is hard to drink. Such an accessible, warming, and wonderfully complex, flavorful beer. Definitely a sipper, but I could sip it all day.
