3.38/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

12.68 fl oz brown bottle, caged & corked, served in a goblet.
Batch #001.

Pours a deep maple with a plum hue. An off-white head, filled with carbonation, recedes nearly upon the initial pour. No lasting lacing to speak of.

Dark, vinous fruit aromatics that is a bit muted by a mild musty astringency which gives an odd earthen, muddy quality as well. Very light milk chocolate that gives another layer of depth in aroma.

Semi-sweet Belgian candy sugar that is tempered by an earthen farmhouse must. After the initial must subsides, a sweet, vinous fruit flavor takes control: plum, grape, cherry, and light fig. Although this aspect is a bit more in line with flavors typical of the style, the warming spiciness of a Quadrupel is nearly absent. The alcohol presence is noticeable in the finish, but certainly not overpowering which is quite surprising for the listed 12%.

Full bodied. Smooth, but somewhat thin on the palate for the style.

Unfortunately, a real bland take on the style. Nothing offensive about this offering, but nothing memorable either.

4.16/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 375 ml bottle into tulip glass.

A: Pours a dark ruby red almost brown with a frothy 1-2 finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly. Some minimal lacing.

S: Lots of fruit esters - plum, raisin, cherry, dates. Some Belgian yeast and molasses.

T: Tons of dark fruit flavors bursting out. A mix of cherry, plum, raisin, dates. There is a subtle sweetness and a bit of spice. Maybe corriander?

M: Fairly full bodied and a bit of a syrup quality but not sticky sweet.

O: A very nice quad, and surprising drinkable considering 12% ABV. This is probably my favorite of the Mystic brews.

4.13/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The odd little bottle, about ten months old, poured into a tulip.

This is a beautiful looking beer. Deep reddish/brown color with a finger or so of dense foam blanket. The head lingers nicely and offsets the deep, rich color nicely. Strong red hues. Attractive, a little "murky".

The smell was sweet and fruity, lots of fruity esters. Sugary-sweet and I assume that is the Belgian candi sugar, raisin/date/fig aromas. And the alcohol is not shy even at the age of the bottle. An earthy note as well - like very ripe fruit.

I thought the flavor was BIG, but it was not overwhelming or muddled. Heavy on the date/fig flavors and the earthiness in the smell delivers in the taste. Almost wine-like character. The malt just peeks through a little - enough to support and balance out the stronger flavors going on. It is sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. The alcohol is certainly present,

The mouthfeel is heavy - no doubt. It's thick and lingers on the tongue, but isn't "cloying". The alcohol provides a nice tingle and offsets the heavy feel somewhat, but there's no mistake that this is a heavy brew.

Overall, thought this a very good beer. Can stand alone for leisurely sipping or pair with robust food. Not something you can drink lots of - one bottle (by itself) seems about right. I can see having this for a rustic meal - venison, root vegetables, etc. And I can easily see getting carried away with it in that setting.
