I was very happy to snag this beer off the shelf.....saw it was a collaboration with Russian River and about pooped my pants. Being in the Midwest....we do not get Russian River product! The beer poured a dark amber with foamy head that didn't hang around long, but left some lace. The scent is typical of Belgian Quads. The taste was very evenly balanced and probably the best quad I have ever had. The mouthfeel was full in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a winner.

Batch #8. Pours a deep clear brown with a thin creamy head that dissipated quickly. It still managed to leave a small amount of sticky lacing. The aroma is a little more yeasty than fruity and sweet but it is still pleasant. The taste is good but a little mild for me, lacking in the big punch of dark fruit and spice that the style is known for. The body has a nice weight to it, with just a hint of carbonation and alcohol on the finish.

Pours dark amber with a small, lacy white head. Has a sweet malt smell. Taste is malt sweet, with little carbonation. Overall a nice Belgian Style beer.

This one was just ok for me. It could be the style, but I just didn’t dig it.

Batch #8. Which has been getting no love on Untappd! Been waiting to try this guy, very smooth mouthfeel. Taste like fresh lemon bread. Very tasty Belgian dark.

Sipped on draft at Sancho Pistola's happy hour on Wednesday, March 11th 2015. I paid for it with the last few bucks in my purse and it gave me the best sips I had all week. <3

Batch 7 (2014) with over a year on the bottle. Smell was funky (sour funky) but tasted just like a solid brown.
