look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured at 37F from a 750ml bomber into a Duvel goblet. Color of unclarified dark amber honey, nonpersistent 1 finger head, vigorously poured. Warm sweet smell of (no kidding) nitrous oxide and slight booziness. At least when I was a kid this is what nitrous oxide smelled like when I was getting teeth pulled. Not sure if it actually has a smell or not. What a grand and warm taste this delicacy has. Flavor is warm and inviting with caramel tops and a cherry-ish reminiscence, or maybe sweet southern barbecue that rolls around the edge of the back half of your tongue on finish. The booziness enhances this lovely combination. The just-above-non-existent carbonation makes this fine sipping brew whose complex flavors beg for sipping and resipping. Hard to call $13 for a bomber snooty, but this is dang fine ale. Note to self: buy whenever you can.

4.45/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 750mL bottle ($20), at Forequarter, Madison, into a chalice. An anonymous-looking brown murk, with an off-white finger of head, w/ serious lacing stuck to the glass.

Smell is of must or funk, overlying a tannic red wine. A bit of Belgian tart yeast.

In the mouth it's a wonderful approximation of a Belgian beer. Cherries in alcohol. A warming liqueur sensation. On the front end it's very sweet and grainy, sugary, even. Malt sweetness, but also tropical fruit, like mango. Some hops on the back-end balances it all. Seriously complex.

Creamy and rich mouthfeel. Low on the carbonation in appearance, but so well-balanced, the syrupy consistency is most welcome. There's a surprising sharpness. Highly drinkable.

This is a definite go-to with rich food.

4.4/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Bottle purchased at AJ's Beer Warehouse in Henrietta, NY.

Poured into my Abandon Brewing snifter. Pours a clear dark peach color. One inch head dissipates quickly. Very small amounts of lacing.

Smells like apricots, orange, cherries, and Belgian yeast.

Similar flavor. Lots of the typical candied Belgian yeast flavors, along with apricot, orange creamsicle, maraschino cherries, cloves, and a a slight herbal grassiness, most likely from the hops.

Medium mouthfeel, very low carbonation. As the beer warms, it becomes a bit more boozy.

The best American made quad I've had. Another great one from Victory.
