Decent beer, not as good to me as their mainstay Final Absolution, but definitely drinkable. Funny I also bought this at local Costco for under $9 for a bomber size...

Bought this from Costco. Served into a tulip. Popped the cork but there was no sound or release of vapors. A bit concerning but I drank it anyways.

Pours a clear copper kettle color with a short off white head that dissipates rather quickly. To my relief, it is carbonated. It smells of honey, barley, yeast, oats, dried fruits. It is quiet sweet and a tad bit dense and syrupy. A touch of bitterness at the end from the hops. It has a full body but lower levels of carbonation, I wonder if it was a bottling problem, the cork made no sound when I popped it. Oh well, regardless, it's still excellent. Great flavor.

750 ml bottle into chalice, 2014 vintage bottling. Pours fairly crystal clear orange/copper color with a thin off white head with poor retention, that reduces to a thin ring of lace. Minimal lacing on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, pear, apple, light banana, clove, caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, candi sugar, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, pear, apple, light banana, clove, caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, candi sugar, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, pear, apple, light banana, clove, caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, candi sugar, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, fairly slick, and lightly crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent quadrupel style! All around great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Has a murky copper color with a healthy white foam. Smells yeasty sweet. Tastes of honey, not too sweet. The bottom begins to taste a bit sickly sweet. Not as good as most tripels I’ve had (I would expect quadrupels to be a notch above tripels, but maybe that's ignorance), but this is still pretty tasty.
