3.64/5  rDev -3.4%

A4 a deep red almost black, 2 fingers of head
S3.5 a grape like scent, boozy, malty
T3.75 this is a typical Belgian quad profile with a weird fruity bitterness.
M3.5 full body, boozy warmth, medium carbonation
O3.5 not really my style, but definitely not bad. I enjoy their iPa's much more though

A: The beer is hazy dark brown in color. It poured with a finger and a half high dark beige head with some darker yeast particles on the bubbles. This quickly died down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of dark fruits and apples in the nose along with some hints of cinnamon.
T: Similar to the taste, the smell has flavors of dark fruits and apples along with some notes of Belgian yeast. There are also lingering hints of spices in the finish.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: It seems that this beer could use a heavier body to accentuate the interesting mix of flavors in the taste.

Pours an extra dark brown color with a small light beige head.

Aromas begin with apple cider, Belgian yeast and brown sugar. As it warms you get some nuttiness and brown bread.

The tastes begin toasted bread, Belgian yeast spice, toasted bready and nutty malt. The apple comes in in the backend after the caramelized malt flavors. Apple works decently well with the dark fruit flavors.

The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Finish is lightly sweet with a bit of emerging alcohol.

Overall this is an intersting beer to sample but not something I would want to drink in large quantities. The apple cider makes an already sweet beer a little sweeter to the point of almost being a bit too much.

dark color with big foamy head which settles down to a thin layer.

smell of spice and apple

first taste attacked sour taste buds. Apple dominates the taste with a hint of raisins and in the finish, dry champagne yeast.

Medium body, carbonation is good. When I opened the bottle an impressive sound of the cork popped. Gases were visible as they escaped from the top.

Overall
it was an interesting beer. Next year I will try this one during the colder months and I will also age another bottle. This bottle was cellared for 9 months.
