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.
