Cold 11.2 ounce bottle served in glass beer challis

A) Hazy cherry cola. The light catches very slow rising carbonation, giving off a grey-white glow

S) Though a quad, smells like a classic Belgian double: sweet caramel, baked apple pie, sour dough

T) Sticky sweet molasses, dark cherries and burnt cooked fruit, mild bitter hops. Yum.

M) Thick and delicious. Effervescent fizz and smooth.

O) Not port like, similar to most quads, but an excellent beer.

Reviewed from my notes. Served at the Lion's Pride, a preview of what is to come at their first annual Belgian Beer festival. The beer is basically the Donker aged for 10 years in barrels (I don't remember what kind though). It pours a very dark brown and is opaque. The thin tan head dissipated quickly to a tiny skim and one large clump of bubbles. Swirling the beer around the glass leaves a bit of a bubbly coating. It has an interesting aroma. There is a mild sweetness to it. I can pick out red grapes and a hint of alcohol. I think there may also be prunes, raisins and/or dates present as well. Like the aroma, the taste is made up of malty sweet purple fruits--plus, grapes and their dried counterparts. There is also a little bit of crystal sugar. I can taste some alcohol, especially in the finish, but the sweetness and fruit flavors linger as well. I'm not tasting some of the hearty malts typical to the style, but I'm also not getting any of the yeast flavors you find in many Belgian ales. This is a very unique beer. It has a medium body and a sugary sweet coat. I can lick my lips and taste crystal sugars that have been deposited there. Medium levels of carbonation are felt all over my mouth. There is also a slight tinge of alcohol. The beer feels very drinkable. I'm taking it slow because I enjoy the complex taste, but I could drink it faster and still enjoy it. Along the same lines I could easily drink a few glasses of this.

I should note that I feel that this beer deserves a higher overall rating than the individual scores I have given it..."sum great than the parts" and all that. This is a very good beer that fans of Belgian and English styles should seek out, as well as those who appreciate what aging in a barrel can do to improve a beer.

0.33 cL from Groton Connivence store. Served in a brandy snifter.

A - Pours an incredibly dark brown, almost black. Head is a light copper. Head dissipates fairly quickly.

Ar - Rich and sweet, almost like a liquor (brandy?) but with dried plum hints.

T - Very nice strong dark ale. On the sweeter side with very well balanced malts. Sweet dark fruit follows through in the finish with a tad bit of tart/sourness in the aftertaste.

D - Definitely worth drinking/sipping slowly as flavors become more pronounced as the beer warms up.

A-

La Trappe. Poured into a Kasteel glass, a deep dark brown with red copper highlights. Decent head but little retention or lacing.

Aroma is a treat. A quad, of this there is no doubt. The aroma is thick, weighty.

Full bodied mouthfeel. The taste confirms, Quadish. A figgy rum spice cake in all it's glory, surely an old recipe. Phenols are mild but pleasant. Alcohol is restrained and warms appropriately as it hits room temp. Inhaling before the sip hits the back of your throat and you taste the aroma.
