look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: poured into a tulip to a deep brown with some ruby highlights. The beer is topped by a two finger light tan head with good retention and some lacing
S: smells of cloves, spicy yeast, plums, raisins and candi sugar
T: taste is some sweet dark fruits, raisins, sugary sweetness, spice from the yeast, clove but not really getting any barrel flavors. swallow brings a huge crash of dark fruits, caramel sweetness and clove.
M: it's honestly kind of light on the mouth with soft carbonation. I thought it would drink a bit bigger but it feels to be on the thin side.
O: This beer is kind of a trickster. It's very smooth and mild on the palate and then it has a huge smack of flavor on the swallow. Overall, not a bad beer but I think there are better representatives of the style.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a tulip glass

A: Plum colored with a one finger tan head that sits and sits. thick lacing.

S: Plums, dates, raisins, clove, Belgian yeast, molasses.

T: Follows nose with smooth, sweet Belgian yeast leading the way. Currants provide a rich backdrop. Molasses slides in. Just terrific. Alcohol isn't really noticed or felt...until later. Flavors improve as it warms.

M: Medium to heavy with thick, chewy and frothy carbonation.

O: Excellent. Tetravis is a fine example of why I love quads. Recommended.

750mL into a St. Bernardus chalice. Pours a slightly hazy amber mahogany w/ a khaki 1-finger head.

Aroma is sweet dates and figs, brown sugar, subtle spice. Bready dark malt and Belgian yeast.

Taste is bready and sweet; dark fruit, brown sugar, toffee, spice. 10% ABV is well hidden. Pretty much a standard quad here.

Mouthfeel is crisp and well carbonated, fairly light on the palate. Drinkable.

Overall a good, straightforward, no-nonsense quad.
