A: Dark brown cloudy with a ruby tinge. No visible carbonation, but a 4 finger beige rocky head with thick chunky lacing.


S: A bouquet of aroma comes out on opening the bottle. Flowers, cherries, nail polish, ripe banana, cream, raisins, figs, black currents.


T: Wonderful. The same flowers and cherries and blossoms, a little nail polish, ripe banana, cream, raisins and figs, chocolate and Christmas all are there.


M: Medium thick body, smooth fine bubbled carbonation.


O: Awesome brew. I got this one at Bruisin Ale’s in Asheville, drank it in New Hamburg, ON Aug 19, 2014.

A: Poured from a bottle to a goblet. Had a dark brown color and a thick consistency. There was a massive, off white, foamy, long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A nice aroma of yeast, dark fruit, and chocolate.

T: Tasted of dark fruit (raisins, especially), chocolate, Belgian yeast, and a hint of malt. This is a classic quadrupel flavor. Very vibrant and complex, but never heavy.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a very solid and drinkable quadrupel. It never seems like a beer with an 11% ABV. Quite tasty and easy to drink.

11oz Bottle from Total Wine Tampa FL for $5

Appearance - The beer pours a black/brown colour with a very large frothy beige coloured head. I can't see much carbonation due the darkness of the beer and there is some great lacing on the sides of the glass. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it began to dissipate.

Smell - Malts, dates/raisins, anise, chocolate

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, dark fruits, and anise. There is also some light chocolate, candied sugar, and a root beer type flavour.

Drink - A little more anise/peppery bite than I like, but still and great mix of complex flavours and a perfect mouthfeel. The alcohol is well hidden and the mix of flavours makes this a great sipper.
