Bottle Code "220616, 10:23"

Poured into a Lion Stout tulip glass, at cellar temperature of 55-degrees Fahrenheit, which seemed to be the perfect temperature.

Be forewarned when pouring this! I initially poured about a 5-finger head. I'd advise a slow pour to start, down the side of the glass, rather than straight into the bottom as I did at the start. The head sticks around forever and takes a long time to drop.

This has an intoxicating nose, and I'm not referring to the 11.3% alcohol. Like a dark bread, made with molasses. Raisins, figs, and a bit of dark fruit all come through as well. Also some toffee and caramel. A little malty sweetness and viscosity in the middle, yet if finishes with a bit of crispness. Medium-full bodied, with a fairly dry finish.

This was absolutely amazing after dinner, and was the perfect nightcap. I slowly enjoyed every last sip of this.

Recommended, without hesitation, this is possibly the best Quad I've had to date. Certainly a benchmark Belgian Quad.

I have one more in the cellar and would like to age it for a while. I'll definitely be buying a few more of these.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Chocolate brown color. Weak head that completely disappears without a trace of lacing.

Complex aroma of raisins, dates, wheat bread and toffee. Plenty of alcohol to excite the nostrils.

Flavor is sweet overall with a dark fruit character. Reminiscent of dates, figs, apple cider, toffee and molasses. No hop character to be found. Alcohol sneeks in with a warm, spicy character.

Medium-full bodied with a light, dry finish from the alcohol. Smooth texture and good carbonation for such a strong beer. Even after 40-50 minutes of sitting, there are still plenty of small bubbles left to tickle the tongue.

Pretty complex beer. Lots of interesting flavors. Definitely gets better as it warms. I would recommend serving at 50-55 F. Good stuff.

Poured out into a snifter, it was covered with a thick light tan head that stuck around for quite a while and produces a nice thick lacing. The body itself is a nice dark amber-brownish color and has some medium (mild) carbonation. You can detect some dark fruits and spices in this beer. Some mild phenol aromas are present too. It’s nice crisp when it first hits your tongue, and really envelopes your mouth with a thick warm feeling. I can pick up some fig and raisin flavors along with some mild citrus fruits like grapefruit. It has a very good aftertaste with some strong alcohol flavors. Over all this is a very good beer and I look forward to drinking it again.

4.6/5  rDev +2%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Dark amber, with a thick, pillowy tan head that took ages to recede, despite the high alcohol presence.

Smell: Apples. Call me crazy, but I smell apples here, kinda reminiscent of Delirium Nocturnum. Faint rum raisin undertones. Wisp-like traces of V8.

Taste: Oh. My. Goodness. Sweet enough to make your dentist slap you. Malty as heck; you might be tempted to market this as a health food supplement. This is a clinic on how to hide high ABV; be warned, it's as easy to drink as table beer. Nice brandy-soaked fruit finish.

Mouthfeel: Docking it a bit because it's not creamy as some reviews have said it is, yet keeping it high because it's still really darn good. Think Remy Martin.

Overall: You're still reading? Get this beer!

4.69/5  rDev +4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Pours dark brownish purple with lots sediment. Smells of dark fruit, raisins, alcohol, and some slight chocolate. Taste is as complex as they get. The flavor begins with a chocolate splash, followed by beautiful spice as it heads toward big sweet fruits: plums, raisins, pears. Ends again with some additional chocolate. This one is highly rated for a reason. I even gave my mother a sip--who turns her nose up at anything but Coors Light--and she was wowed by it. You don’t have to be a beer snob to enjoy this one. It’s just plain good. The mouthfeel is a bit chewey, but plenty of carbonation to keep it from being syrup like. Amazing brew.

4.85/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Cloudy, deep, coppery brown. Muddy, mineral rich water.

S: An incredibly unique, almost baked smell. Chocolate cake, toasted oats, and candied figs.

T: An exquisitely thick flavor filled with notes of milk chocolate, caramel, yeast, figs, and nuts. The high level of alcohol is noticeable yet pleasantly tamed by the chocolate fruit cake until it reaches the back of the throat where it leaves a trail of fire.

M: A little thinner than expected given the robust flavor.

O: A great sipping beer. There's no doubting why this is considered a world class brew.
