Deep amber with a thick, though compact bone-white head. Hints of lace are indeed left behind.
Nose of ripe apricot and raisins with hints of sugary sweet malt and alcohol.
Well-integrated alcohol notes linger throughout this beer, though the focal points are the raisin and apricot fruit aspects. The malt flavor comes in a boisterous manner, while the candy sugar notes become pronounced mid-palate and linger on the rather alcoholic finish. Sweetness dominates throughout.
Full-bodied with an appropriately carbonated, elegant mouthfeel.
Drinks quite well for a beer of its weight, though the alcoholic notes may be a bit too omnipresent to give it higher scores. While it shares some characteristics with the classics, it's obviously not a true Belgian quad in the way Westvleteren, Rochefort and even St-Bernardus are. A nice beer on its own accord, however, and a very nice nightcap among friends.
