Had this at L'autre-oeil in Gatineau, QC.
A: Poured a very nice dark mahogany with no head at all into a snifter. A small head started to appear after a few minutes which I found very interesting. It left beautiful lacing on the glass.
S: Enticing aromas of caramel and brown sugar. There was also a bit of grapes in there and it reminded me of port.
T: Very sweet! Plum and dates with some brown sugar. It does get a bit cloying after a while and I generally enjoy this kind of taste.
M: Medium body that is a bit oily. Feels quite smooth.
D: I enjoyed it even though I found the sweetness a bit overwhelming towards the end so I have to deduce a point here.
Overall, a different quadrupel than the ones I'm used to and that I enjoy more. This was still interesting but I don't think I would go for it again.
