650 ml corked caged bottle dated 8/13/2014. Sampled on November 9, 2014. Served about 60 degrees.

Pours reddish amber with tan head and lacing.

Aroma of dark sweet malts and black licorice.

Medium but smooth body.

The taste has a touch of Belgian malts, black licorice and booze. Big bitter finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: A nice and full khaki head with minimal retention but nice lacing. Very dark coca-cola in color, but a ruby amber when up to the light.

Nose: Belgian yeast, raisins, very light nose. Carmel and pepsi.

Taste: Well balanced, malty up front which stays a while. A slight medicinal and alcoholic hotness at the end.

Notes: It is true to style, but not very interesting. There is so much you can do with a Belgian Quadrupel that this just fell short.

750ml corked, caged and born in Texas. God approves whether you're blue or red! It pours darker than I would expect for the style, sort of a milk chocolate brown with a micro bubbly off white tan head that makes me feel like I'm flying about 5,000 feet over my beer. I am the God of beer world, bow before me tiny bubbles!!! The smell is carob, oranges, and cinnamon. Taste is oranges, cloves, and a slightly dusty finish. I'm not sure if that sounds good but it tastes good. The aftertaste is where that carob shows back up, really makes you want another sip. Mouthfeel is soft with those tiny bubbles making their tiny presence known in no uncertain terms. Overall, I like this one a lot. It is a bit darker and....there's that dusty word again...than the style would lead you to believe but the beer doesn't lead you in the wrong direction by any stretch of the imagination. Get this one. Well, get another one. This one is mine.
