3.68/5 rDev 0%
22oz bottle ordered from BeerShip.com. 9.49. No bottle date but if this site is correct, it was a one time release in early 2013. Served in a goblet.
Pours a ruddy mahogany with a finger and a half of yellowish tan head. The bubbles slowly fade to a thin halo and leave only ocassional dots of lace.
Smells of dark fruit, caramel, bready malts, brown sugar and a fairly mild Belgian yeast.
Taste follows the nose. Figs, plums, brown sugar, raisin bread, caramel, chocolate, toast, apple skins, woodsy note, clove, earthy tobacco, a little leather and some booze back there popping in and out between everything else. A pretty good blend overall.
Creamy medium body with soft but ample carbonation. Just a tad thin for the style. Dark fruit, caramel, chocolate and mild yeast linger in the long aftertaste.
A petite quad, eh? Fairly complex and hitting all the typical stylistic notes at somewhere around seventy to eighty percent. An enjoyable brew for sure but I'd probably prefer if they'd boost it to a full blown quad.

Poured from a bomber into a chalice, the beer is a hazy, opaque, dark caramel-amber coloring with a filmy, sparse, light, off-white surface coating of head. Aromas of rich, sweet toffee, tangy caramel, vanilla highlights, date, fig, woody notes, and some earthy notes. Very rich and sweet nose. Flavors are very tangy sweet forward, almost sugary, with hints of booze throughout. Caramel, date, fig, nut, and hints of chocolate blast the forward tongue, but the tangy sweetness blows everything else away. You do start to get some woody and earthy notes underlying the sweetness, and a little bit of building warmth from the slightly elevated ABV. Mid-bodied, but almost too light for the flavor profiles. The aftertaste is so cloyingly sweet, with the tangy caramel continuing it's reign of dominance over your taste buds. Slick, slightly oily finish, with a lingering cloying feel. This seems a bit out of balance, for me, for the style. Tasty, but could use some tweaking.

Pours a rye bread brown with a etched surface of toasted cream foam. Smells of wood, hazelnuts, some grain, some flour, a bit of prune. Bitter, with some toasted grains, some dry charred character, a little bit of clove and alcohol. Medium on thin with moderate carb and a wet finish. Not very good.

Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours a dark mahogany brown with a fine half finger light tan head with good retention and lacing. Mild aroma of caramel malt, dark stone fruit, slight alcohol. Flavor is a subdued sweet caramel malt, dark dried fruit, nuts, Belgian spicing, slightly earthy. Finish is a bit bland, but malty. Nice medium body with some creaminess. The sweetness and flavor components make this lean more towards a Scotch ale than a Belgian, although there are some Belgian yeast and spicing elements here. Interesting, but not noteworthy.
