Finally got to sample this much anticipated treat!
A: Dark Dark brown, very cloudy. Light brown head that didn't stick around for very long. Left some decent lacing though.
S: Nutty, Lots of different malt characteristics.
T: Rich flavors of nuts, and malt, Belgian yeast and some fruit. The fruit was subtle but prune or fig is what I tasted, very nutty.
M: Very well balanced and light for a quad. good carbonation. Great mouthfeel.
O: This beer was awesome but put next to some of the other great Quads I have had I don't think it really would be leagues above them. This beer def didn't live up to the hype and I don't think it deserves the #2 spot overall. With that said it was still very enjoyable and a great beer!
