4.43/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

I poured this into a 10.5 ounce tulip glass.

Pour: Nice amber brown color. Only slight head forms at the top, eventually settling into only a ring around the glass.

Aroma: Caramel malt. Smells delicious.

Mouthfeel--Not much in the way of carbonation, which is good. Not too thick either. I tried the Westmalle tripel last night, and it seemed to have more body (not that the two are necessarily comparable).

Taste: In line with the scent. It's a caramel malt treat. Delicious. Wonder what the best food pairings for this would be.

Overal: I recently had the St. B dubbel, and I think I prefer the dubbed to the quad. Don't get me wrong--this is a beer to savor. But for quads, I might be inclined to reach for the Ommegang 3 Ps before this (again, though, it's a close call).

Serving type: bottle
