Acquired in a trade, this was poured from a 16.9 oz bottle into an Affligem chalice. Poured a reddish-brown with a small head (less than a finger) that dissipated quickly as I let it warm. Not much lacing was in evidence. Nose was some dark fruit, especially figs and caramel. Taste was very subtle for a quad with sweet caramel predominating. There were some dark fruit notes of raisin and plum. Mouthfeel was very light for a quad as was the carbonation. There was little to no alcohol warming. This was an OK offering but definitely NOT at the head of the quad class. A little too subtle for my tastes.

Poured from the bottle into a Unibroue tulip.

Pours a dark chocolate color with no lacing and a minimal head but it is thick as you would expect with a quad. Smells of dark fruits with a slight alcohol tinge coming through at the end. Other than that, there is not too much on the nose. Maybe because the roomies are stinking up.the house burning taco meat. It tastes of dark fruits: dried plums, figs, and maybe even some cherry at the end. Above medium carbonation but not on the level of St. Bernardus. This brew coats the mouth well and you get a slight alcohol burn on the down. It's pleasant.

Would I get this again? Probably not seeing as how St. Bernardus is not much more expensive for a bottle...However, overall I enjoyed it. Not a bad quad but I think that they do other styles better.

OK, let's see how fast I can do this before I am automatically logged out and can't post my review.

Poured from a 500 ml. bottle into a globe glass. Deep brown with bright crimson highlights. Light carbonation and lace.

Nose of brown sugar and some yeast, bit of dark fruit. Thin.

Taste of cocoa and spice, touch of chocolate and bread.

Feel is a bit thin, needs more carbonation. Needs bottle conditioning.

Overall pretty good, no flaws.

Just picked up a bottle of this (9/2/12) from Whole Foods. Nice artwork and a neat looking cap! Numbered 6323/10000.

Out of a Duvel tulip:

Appearance: Dark. Head faded away quick.
Nose: Another reviewer says phenolic and I'd agree. Dark fruit, malty, a little banana.
Taste: Very malty, with some hints of...chocolate? The maltiness really seems to step up as this beer warms.
Mouthfeel: Dry, not a lot of carbonation. The 10% ABV isn't very apparent.
Finish: Dry and a little bitter.

I'm not too familiar with quads yet, but I think this is pretty solid. Would probably buy again.

Reviewing this quad since it needs the reviews.

Pours a very dark cranberry red/brown with a firm and thick khaki head.

Nose is assertive fruity banana esters - smells very Belgian.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with nice balance of malt and hops and light carbonation. Can "get" the alcohol but is not offensive.

Flavor profile is rich malt and nice bitter hops in a very nice balance. Flavors of fruit, cooked stone fruit, salted toffee and light carmel.

Finish is dry with a nice hop bitter finish that is long lasting.

Poured into a Gavroche tulip. Pours a hazy dark reddish amber with a two finger light tan head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of bready and caramel malt, dark dried fruit. Flavor begins with sweet caramel malt, fresh and dried dark fruits, particularly dates then transitions to a drier, hoppier dark fruit finish that is somewhat astringent. Medium bodied with light creaminess. An interesting riff on the quad style, starting with classic sweet dark fruit, but the flavor thins and dries out a bit too much in the finish. ABV initially well covered, but becomes noticeable in the finish. I enjoyed this as a idiosyncratic take on a quad, but would probably return to the Belgians if I was looking for traditional taste. Might be a winner with a bit more balance and some more sweet malt in the finish.

Tasting @ Wally's. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a reddish-brown with a half-inch white head which fades to the rim leaving spotty lace.

N: Dark fruit (raisins and figs), and caramel.

T: Sweetish caramel and dark fruits (figs, raisins, prunes). A bit light for a quad.

M: Medium body and carbonation. Finishes sweet, malty and caramel.

O: ABV is warming. A decent offering, but not top of class.

A pretty darn good beer for Mason City Iowa. The taste and aroma were both a little sharp for the stated style of Quad, but it was hard to tell if that was from alcohol or hop bitterness. The mouthfeel was wonderful, just the slightest bit of carbonation. I would have given it a 5 if it were just a tich heavier. Color is maybe too light for as murky as it is. I'm seeing a lot through the edges but the middle is quite cloudy.
