wow. the 11% alcohol is well hidden unless the beer warms. dark, rich dark-fruit flavors on the tongue and nose. opaque brown pour with half inch foam which diminished quickly. foams sticks to the side of the glass which isnt being sipped from. is this what they call caramel malts? i'll check their website but i'd be very interested in the other beers from this brewery. great statrter brew for the evening.... also, had this on tap at THEGLOBE in garden grove, ca. and wondering if i should be there drinking this instead of at home in front of my computer . . . .

Smell: sweet orange zest with sugary notes and molasses inside of oak barrels

Taste: intense brown sugar/ molasses, sweet cream, orange zest and a somewhat sweet scotch-like taste throughout the entirety of this drink

This beer is highly recommended for those who are trying to explore the quadruple world of beer and, more specifically, people who want to venture into Belgium.

Pairings: extra sharp cheddar, hamburgers, tri-tip, and smoked fish are very good with this beer; don't forget the black grapes

Had in Nancy. France at a local pub.

Poured from the bottle a deep, dark brown with a fingers worth of dense white head.
Smelled immediately of roasted malt, prune, caramel.
Sweet taste, almost wine-like followed by a smooth, chocolately, coating of the mouth finish. Almost like honey.
Mouthfeel was retained throughout drinking and is still with now after leaving the pub nearly half an hour ago.
Overall and excellent Quad. Took me to a sweet, caramel-like place that I very much enjoyed.
