On draft, served in a St. Bernardus Chalice. A dark non-transparent color, not black more of a dark brown and doesn’t have the consistency that the other quads I’ve tried have had. Much less viscous than the other quads I’ve had which really surprised me as I expected this to be very heavy and it turned out much lighter. Tastes like a dark Belgium, with smells of fruit (figs) and some dark malt. Mouthful was pleasant and warm; alcohol taste isn’t overpowering but adds a complexity. Overall a good beer, not as tasty as Rochefort 10 or the other quads I’ve had but a solid Belgian none the less.
Serving type: on-tap

Cork poured into my Schneider Weisse weizen glass.
A: HUGE head, dark brown opaque caramel color, medium carbonation slanted towards the bottom, THICK lacing throughout.
S: Dominant scent is salty pretzels, malty and bready with some spice.
T: Bready, biscuity, malty with spice, caramel at times.
M: Medium-full body, very creamy, high carbonation, alcohol is very well hidden.
O: Great mouthfeel with bready taste. Reminds me of Sam Adams Double Bock, but slightly less desirable taste and less visible carbonation.
Serving type: bottle
