Bottle from the LCBO, shared as part of the QuadShowdown. 330ml into a tulip, 2010 vintage.

Pours a reddish brown, with a creamy tan head. Great head, with modest retention, and great lacing. Good clarity in the body. Nose has some soft fruits, brown sugar, alcohol soaked fruits, a touch of spice and some vinous notes. Soft fruitiness is again found in the flavour, lightly sugary, a touch of earth, caramel. Some sweetness and a bit of dryness in the finish. Soft, smooth and gentle carbonation, fills the mouth exceptionally. An awesome quad, great flavours and the mouthfeel make this exceptional.

A - pours a deep, thick brown with an insanely fluffy bubblely head that dissipates quickly.

S - kind of a sour fruity smell. I kind of get sour cherries. Bready malt as well.

T - kind of a light flavor. Dark fruits and Belgian yeast. Sweet throught the end.

M - medium to heavy body with pretty heavy carbonation.

O - I feel like some thing went wrong here. It was very thin. I dunno. Good but not what I expected.

Poured a hazy Padres brown (perfect for an abbey style ale!) with a good tan head that dissipates quickly. Carbonation is visible on the edges.

Smells of fresh tobacco and raisins, a well defined sweetness. Tastes like semi sweet fruit bread with no discernable hop presence. Delicious with a moderate alcohol presence that warms me up gently.

Medium bodied, this is well carbonated and smooth.
