3.45/5 rDev -13.3%
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.

750 ml bottle into chalice, no bottle dating(but likely well over a year old). Pours extremely hazy dark reddish brown color with a fairly dense 1 finger off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Some slight spotty lacing on the glass, with a small amount of carbonation streaming up. Cork did not pop after opening, I have a feeling this is pretty aged; though I did seem to get some decent carbonation. Aromas of prune, raisin, fig, molasses, caramel, toast, candi sugar, toffee, clove, earth, pepper, biscuit, and light yeast spices. Pretty nice aromas with good balance and complexity; a little cloying sweet smelling. Taste of prune, raisin, cherry, toast, caramel, molasses, biscuit, clove, earth, toffee, light chocolate, candi sugar, light pepper, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of dark fruit, caramel, toffee, clove, earth, toast, biscuit, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Good flavor balance and complexity; with minimal cloying sweetness. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a fairly slick and creamy mouthfeel that is good(with just enough carbonation to make it fit the style). Alcohol is very well hidden at 11% with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very enjoyable Belgian quad style. Nice flavor balance and complexity; and very smooth to sip on for the gravity. Well done.

Poured into a tulip glass.
Appearance: Copper bodied brew with an off white head. Good Lacing.
Smell: Lots of big dark fruits. Spiciness from the yeast and sweet malts.
Taste: Raisins, plum, and figs. Brown sugar and caramel malts. Mild alcohol bite.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and smooth. Full bodied beer with moderate carbontion.
Overall: Really goood Quad style beer. Reminds me of Rochefort 10, but kick up a notch. Belgian style ale that is fantastic!

Thanks to Derek for sending this beer my way.
A: The beer pours amber-copper in color with a sizable off-white head.
S: A weird citrus aroma to it along with some definite cardboard notes. Toffee and caramel sweetness along with some dark fruits and a bit of spice and yeast.
T: This is sort of cidery. Lots of apple and orange peel flavor. Certainly some cardboard, too. Sweet toffee and brown sugar, a little bit of dark fruits, too. Spices, yeast, and metal round out the flavor.
M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Not sure of the age on this beer, but it seemed like it might have been past its prime.

750 mL bottle poured into a chalice. It is a pinkish golden color, very well carbonated and with head that dissipates fairly quickly. Smells include bubblegum, allspice, cloves, and cherries.
Taste is a spicy and peppery mix of fruits: cherries, peaches, apples. More cloves. Alcohol is present, but it is drinkable enough. Fairly light-bodied for a quad.

Pours a half-finger of light tan head over a light copper (with reddish) liquid. Many particulates suspended throughout. Smells mild overall. Phenol, candi-sugar, some pear esters, banana.
Tastes strongly of candi-sugar, with some pear, interesting alcohol edge, and phenol finish. Aftertaste sees a resurgence of the candi-sugar. Light and playful fruits tempt alcohol burn and spicy zip. In the aftertaste, there is a cherry flatness on the upper back portion of the mouth.
Interesting sticky sugar mouthfeel on a light bodied beer. Modest carbonation. Pretty drinkable, though more of a trippel than a quad, IMO.
