look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Aromas of prunes, blackberries, and a mild yeastiness. Very malty, slight tartness at the beginning that leads into a malt bomb. nice fruitiness in a big beer and for being such a big beer the alcohol is not very apparent... Very mild booziness on the finish. Mild lingering bitterness is apparent but not really enough to balance the malt.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A- Pours a dark, hazy amber with a finger of white head.

S- Starts out with dark candied fruit, and as the beer warms I smell some toffee and tart apples.

T- The taste has a lot of sweet heft to it, with a touch of alcohol and a lingering bitterness. The bitterness dies off as the beer warms but it is not pleasant when first poured.

M- The carbonation was medium-bodied but it came off as hidden because the beer is so big. Mostly, you just get a syrupy, sticky, sweet gob in your mouth. Hmmm...there has to be a better way to put that...

O- I could not finish a bomber by myself. I don't know if I could finish any bomber of a quad by myself, but this one was sweeter and stickier than what I like. It was decent once it warmed but I would not purchase again.

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

Poured from a wax sealed bottle into a Chimay chalice. Thick head that quickly settles. Dark, but not too dark in the body.

Not a whole lot going on in the nose. Smells somewhat like a quad, some dark fruits, some burnt smells, but that is about it.

Taste is better than I expected. Not very complex, but enjoyable and drinkable and hides the 11% ABV pretty well.

Body is a little thin.

All this adds up to a relatively enjoyable beer, smooth and drinkable, but not as much flavor as I would like. Tough to drink a whole one and stay composed, so best to split with a friend.
