Pours easily with great head which settles in 5 min or so. Dark brown amber color. Aroma of plum, raisin, sweet roasted malt. Feels med to med heavy on tongue, great carbonation and effervescence. Heavy malt flavor and slight fruit. Very sweet malty beer. Good alcohol warmth going down. At 10.2% ABV this is a slow sipping, sit down and enjoy beer. Overall a good example of a Belgium Quad although with longer aging the sweet malty flavors should mellow out a bit.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a murky brown/copper mixture with a big light tan head that falls rather quickly. No real lace on this one some splotches are about it.

Aroma is loads of dark fruit, very vinous, some light tartness. Plenty of spice, cloves light pepper fruits are plums raisins sugar coated figs. Maybe light hints of alcohol.

Taste is like the nose lots of dark fruit, on a lightly brown sugar mingled malt bready base. Maybe like a fruit cake but way better then that. Lots of dark fruit notes moving to lingering sweet malts, finishes with lots of clove and very light pepper. Some hints of alcohol in the finish to warm the body and do not detract. Simple well done brew not overly complex but quite tasty.

Mouthfeel is nice only right side of medium but the carbonation level is very good, not over done as some Belgians tend to be.

Overall very enjoyable reasonably priced Quad, must say I am impressed by Sam Adams on this one.
