Poured into my Ommegang chalice a deep roasted chesnut brown with a sticky one finger beige head atop that left a broken ring of lace as it settled slowly.A slight sherry vinegar note is something that caught my attention with dark brown sugar and dark fruit in there as well,the vinegar element is something I have never come across in a quad.Deep brown sugar and toffee flavors with sweet alcohol,it's cakey and rich with a slightly acidic finish.Full lush feel in the mouth,this is somewhat different than alot of quads and I really liked it,it's a bit raw in some aspects.Great stuff.

Half finger head on a hazy deep brown body. Excellent lacing. Simple aroma with mostly sweet caramel malts and some herbal notes. Flavor is very different with dark candied fruit, candy sugar, toffee, caramel and a mild tartness. Medium body and lighter side of moderate carbonation. Very smooth. Perfect amount of sweetness and a touch boozy but for 11 percent not bad at all.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

33cl bottle at DELICE & CAPRICES , Brussels

A: Pours a dark, translucent copper brown with two fingers of billowy, pale tan head. Strong retention and lace.

S: Good yeasty malt aromas, a little chocolate and some dark fruits.

T: Pepper and cinnamon up front, transitioning to some dark fruits in the middle and ending with a little spice. Some chocolate notes and also some vinous flavors enter as the beer warms. The flavor is pretty dry overall, almost a stout quality. Towards the end of the glass, some subtle bubblegum joins in.

M: Medium-heavy mouthfeel with considerable creaminess that keeps it buoyant and a lot of smoothness as well.

O: A pretty good beer.

Bottle served into Antwerp Beer Passion Weekend 2011 stemware in Antwerp, Belgium. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a two finger head of lovely cream, slight tan colour, nice thickness, and of great retention for the high ABV. Colour is a dark black.

Sm: Chocolate, toffee, caramel, and amber hops.

T: Chocolate, toffee, caramel, and some cream. Very full and flavorful, with adequate complexity for the style. I may have been wrong about the amber hops. Maybe some vanilla. Balanced well and built decently. The style does demand far more subtlety, in fairness.

Mf: Nicely coarse and wet. Complements the general tone of the flavour.

Dr: A very average quadrupel, with little to offer. It does hide its ABV well and makes for easy drinking, but just isn't a quality brew.
