A-EBF sample pour. Body is thick and viscous. Dark brown color.
S-Big notes of dark fruits. Smells a bit like a port or sherry. The aroma was very rich. Also there was some alcohol in the nose.
T-The four yeasts used really bring out different flavors. The sherry, Barleywine and Trappist yeasts are the most noticeable. It tastes like sherry, and it also has flavors synonymous with both Barleywines and dark Belgian beers. Dark, booze-soaked fruits, rich brown sugar and some vinous flavors.
M-Flat. Viscous and pleasurably oily. Alcohol is actually more forgiving than one would expect it to be.
O/D-I have only had a few beers like this one. The Xyauyu beers are similar. This one is awesome and should be tried if the opportunity arises. I would like to grab a bottle and age it.

a beer like no other, if we can even call it that. something like four or five yeasts make this quad turned barleywine something to behold. it pours an almost still looking rich dark caramel brassy color, darker than that, shaded, clean looking, not much head, thick and sticky. the smell of this is a quad at heart, i do get a genuine belgian yeast with all its fruity esters and big dark grain sugars, but i also get so much more. a white wine yeast is apparently used to dry it out, which is highly successful, i get some mild acidity in the nose, but none in the feel. i also get a ton of fruit, some dried cherries and even plums, but fresh fruit too, red grapes, tangy pomegranate, and a woody nuttiness like pecans, all in the smell. it also has a spirit sort of nose, likely from the sherry yeast they continue to referment this with. the flavor oozes vanilla and belgian dark malts. molasses, brown sugar, cherry juice, black tea, this is impossibly complex. lots of woody mustiness, almost no residual sugar even though this is like dessert to me. the sherry yeast is a very interesting touch, giving this a velvety texture that is light in spite of its thickness. it coats the mouth and glides down the throat finishing more english than belgian really, but mixing the best of both worlds. even at room temperature all this alcohol is magically well hidden. one of the most memorable mouthfeels in beer for me, not a lick of carbonation, rich and decadently full bodied, but soft and delicate and gentle and clean and slippery, really just a beautiful creation. my first and only beer from mystic to date. this is refined to a level usually reserved for some of the heavy hitters in craft brewing. this deserves much more attention, much higher ratings, and is honestly some of the most special beer ive ever encountered. like nothing else out there.

From the batch released on Black Friday (not the exploding batch). Pours a deep dark brown which is almost black in the glass. Complex odor, sherry is the most prominent. Smooth flavor with obvious notes from the barrel and some dark fruitiness from the yeast. No carbonation, tastes like a strong beverage, but the alcohol is only a little noticeable on the lips.
Overall this is really likable, and obviously a brew that Mystic put a lot of care into. 'Belgian Quad' doesn't really describe it. Maybe more like a strong barleywine. I'd like to pick up another and see how it ages.

Pretty good beer.. It's like taking a shot.. The 14% alcohol this beer is taste stronger.. Well brewed... Great beer to taste after you've tasted the lower percentage beers on the list when you're at the brewery.. Bottle is fashionably nice .. This is a beer you would like to pour a glass in sip on it during a nice steak dinner..
