Poured from the bottle into a tulip.
A: An unfiltered dark brown ale that almost looks red. The head pours thick and off white. Then retains very well, leaving little lacing on the glass.
S: Thick, dark fruits and cherry come through in what is a sour aroma with a bit of a spice kick. Every bit what a Belgian quad should smell like.
T: Very true to the aroma, this strong quad gives sweet dark fruits tones. Much like raisins. The booze is apparent, which is very much expected from this huge quad.
M: Stingy from the carbonation and booze. Thick and dry.
O: Had to close my eyes a few times while drinking this one. It practically set off fireworks in my brain. The very sweet malts balanced well with the incredible Belgian yeast. The booze helped me feel like I was enjoying the same brew that some Trappists were drinking a few centuries ago. 10/10 will drink again.

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.
