3.75/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

[Suggested Glassware: Trappist Glass]

The pour was a clear medium reddish brown with a small (less than 1 finger) khaki colored head, which reduced to a large puddle and collar and possessed awesome sheets of lacing that totally engulfed the entire glass.

The aroma was of toasted Belgian malts, light floral hops and a musty Belgian yeast with notes of candi sugar, molasses, coriander and dark fruit (black cherry, currant and raisons).

The taste was moderately sweet and extremely malty with hints of molasses and candi sugar early on, progressing with a mild yeast presence, a somewhat bold fruitiness and a light spicy ending. The flavor stayed with you for a decently long while following the swallow, with a fruity spiciness left to linger on for a while longer.

Mouthfeel was somewhere in between light and medium in body with a thin creamy texture and a nice lively carbonation.

Overall this was a really good tasting beer, which had a good bold fruitiness along with a nice malty sweetness and a touch of spice, making it very enjoyable and easy to drink. Definitely a fine well rounded brew...

3.96/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours a brownish orange. Beige head is fairly thick.

Smell is complex. Dark fruits. Brown Sugar. Malt, yeast and spicy smells at the end.

The taste is similar to the smell. Dark fruits, malt. Some oak flavors as well. Very sweet though.

Not enough carbonation. Too flat and syrupy for my tastes.

Great quad that is only hurt by its excessive sweetness.
