Never reviewed this, huh... that's strange, had it quite a few times over the years.
Must have been too busy enjoying it.
12oz. bottle, BBD: "02 02 17" printed on the back label.
Served in a small snifter glass.
Huge billowing head of tan foam forms after a slow pour, first leaving behind a thin collar, then delicate arcs of lace that slowly settle back into the beer. Swirling the glass quickly rekindles the head for a few moments, but it quickly dissipates again.
Fruity and spicy aromas of fig, plum, sultana, some clove.
Flavors are similar, distinct plum and clove notes, earthy hop with some caramel and raisin in the middle. Finishes dry and fairly smooth and creamy despite the high abv, though its certainly warming. Not overly sweet, moderate carbonation. A benchmark of the style, allowing the trappist yeast to be showcased, not hiding behind a ton of candi sugar and booze like so many other Quads.
