look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Enjoyed this 11.2oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a dark brown hue with a huge, 5-finger, tan head that slowly dissipates, leaving a great trail down the glass and ending in a solid persistent lace.

S: Slight banana aroma with a great toffee, coffee, and chocolate background.

T: Smooth dark rich ale with a mild sweetness with a roasted malt bitterness. Strong chocolate and coffee overtones, with a nice malt background. Finishes slightly hoppy and smooth.

M: Heavy body and high carbonation.

O: Wow – phenomenal beer! This was so smooth and tasty. This is a really strong beer but the malts blend it in so well you can’t tell. It went down way to easy for such a strong beer. I like the name 10 for it’s original starting gravity of 1.100

Really great big beer. Booze isn't noticeable. It's super smooth and easy. A lot more head than I would have imagined at this ABV. Best Quad I've had by far. This one definitely improves as it warm's up so don't chill it too much. I noticed that the colder this beer is the less complex it seems to the senses. Don't dumb this down!

Pour produces a tan and off white huge rocky head. Color is a totally opaque deep dark brown verging on black.

On the nose I get molasses, dark sweet fruits, yeast, brown sugar, fig, wood, cola, raisins. Every time I go in for another sniff it reveals another layer of complexity.

Taste follows the nose with the sweet dark fruit and woodiness. The molasses is very up front too. Lots of cherry on the mid palate and finish. I get a decent amount of heat from the alcohol that becomes fumey as it sits on my tongue. Some residual sweetness from the sugar in the finish. Also berries in the finish.

Body is highly carbonated, slightly creamy, and medium.

Overall this is an amazingly complex beer. Lived up to the hype for me. Not a huge belgian quad guy but it might be creeping up there on my style rankings after drinking this guy.

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

A: NIce dark brown color with a slight hint of read. Poured nicely with a good amount of caramel head.

S: Smells of alcohol right off that bat. Smells somewhat of a sour beer with, smelling of cherries wine. This smell makes me what to try the beer and its a very unique smell.

T: Very strong alcohol taste. Hits you right away and takes a moment before you notice the dark chocolate,malt, caramel taste. Leaves a sweet taste on your tongue.

M: Good mouthfeel. Moderate thickness to it and light carbonation.

O: Overall, this is a very good beer.

This bottle was picked up at Julio's quite some time ago. Fairly sure this is either an 09 or 10 vintage. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a crystal clear chestnut pour with a thin off white almost mocha head that fades to leave a nice cloud and slight lacing/halo.

S - Strong dark fruits like figs and carmel malts along with some slight warming booze.

T - Sweet carmel malts, slightly heavy and syrupy. Nice dark fruits such as figs and some good booze notes.

M - Boozy and syrupy. Still, for this style and ABV its a good feel. Light carbonation.

O - Overall, I can understand the hype behind this beer now. Not sure if I should held onto this for so long though.
