4.15/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Huge, fluffy head with big bubbles caps a dark brown and cloudy liquid. Heavy lacing all the way down the snifter. Looks wonderful and inviting.

Smells of belgian yeast, much like many triples and quads from belgium.

Malt, dark fruits and yeast. With the high ABV, the alcohol is very well hidden. Not too sweet, but a good amount of sugar and even a hint of tartness. Complex flavors but not over done.

Easy drinking for such a big beer. Mouthfeel couldn't be better for a Quad.

Overall this is a great beer. Tastes good, looks great, smells like it should and it's not hard to drink. There are quite a few quads and triples made in NA, but none compare to this beast of a beer. The only knock I have on it is the price, there are some beer that just a little bit weaker than this that are nearly half the price. Maybe even cheaper.
