330ml bottle into large wine glass. best before may 14, 2019. served to myself on december 10, 2014

a: unbelievably murky. chestnut hue. finger of tan head

s: a ridiculous rich and sweet melange of caramel, bread, and candied dark fruits (i'm getting massive raisin and date aromas, with hints of figs and plums). some earthy notes, and a pinch of alcohol. the dark fruits emerge vastly as it warms. what i like about this is that the earthy notes aren't so forward, like in rochefort 8. a true KO aroma

t: much like the nose. rich and malty sweet up front, exhibiting notes of caramel, freshly-baked bread, and brown sugar. mid-palate is where all the aforementioned dark fruit flavours kick in, along with some sort of cooked apple note. minimal alcohol presence. undeniably decadent and sugary sweet, with dominating malt characteristics, but a medium-level bitterness kicks in quickly enough to keep everything on a leash. ends off with lots of lingering flavours, slighty earthy touches, and even some sort of dark chocolate/cocoa note

m: medium-bodied with moderate, somewhat lively carbonation. quite dry on the finish

o: sweet, rich, complex, and delicious

The color is pitch black. The scent is huge with lots of raisins and plums. The taste is extremely rich. All the flavors forms what is almost an orgasm in your mouth. I absolutely love this beer.

The legend is true. This is THE BEST BEER I've ever had. I was expecting to be underwhelmed. It took effort to find. It was all worth it. Can Westvleteren possibly be even as good as this?

Poured into a chalice from a .33l bottle. Best before 07/05/2019.

Color is dark mahogany and completely opaque. A creamy two-finger foam lingers forever. Lots of semi-sticky lacing. Smell is really complex - lots going on here. There are dark fruits, some banana notes, malty sweetness all blended with some phenols. Flavor is equally complex with malt, lots of fruit and some booze. Body is light/medium, really creamy, lots of carbonation. It's very drinkable for an 11.3 ABV.

Overall, a great example of what a quad can be when everything comes together.

If you could only have one beer in your lifetime, this would be a good choice.

Pours a darker brown color with a very thick, brown colored head with good retention. Appears to be a good deal of sediment that has gathered at the bottom. A good deal of thick, milky lacing is left on the glass. The top layer retains a thin, spotty head, creating some interesting off colors to look at.

Very complex aroma. Definitely some lightly roasted chocolate, dark fruits, sweet caramel malts and toffee. The sweetness is strong, almost overwhelming to the nose. A bit of banana (a little bit more of a banana bread type aroma than straight banana. A hint of figs as well. The sweet caramel malts really stick to the tongue, almost giving it an authentic candy caramel effect.

My gosh. The taste! Leads with some very sweet caramel sugars and some dark fruit, most noticeably cherry. Followed up by some very lightly roasted chocolate and just the slightest hint of nuts. Very complex flavor. Has a very creamy nature to it, giving it a coffee creamer type taste (french vanilla).

Super smooth, milky and creamy. Very easy to down for 11%. A little bit more carbonation than I expected.

This was my first quad, and I was a bit worried that due to my inexperience, I wouldn't be able to appreciate it. How wrong I was. This is the best beer I've ever had. No weak points here, and has some superior drinkability for any beer, made even crazier by its ABV. Truly sensational.
