3.6/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance:
Dark brown body with fermentation floating around making this hazy and murky, the head is a light tan color, very thick and billowy and last for a very long time. The lacing is very thick and absolutely wonderful to look at.
Smell:
The aroma is filled with dark fruits, fig, grape, and apple.
Taste:
Malty and sweet, orange zest and brown sugar are the main flavors here. I do pick up some mild raisin tastes.
Mouthfeel:
Crisp and plenty of carbonation, its medium bodied and the alcohol is well presented in this quad.
Overall:
Smooth, relaxing and easy to drink, this is a good quad, maybe not as complex as others I’ve had but definitely very smooth.

750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled on 10/9/2013. Pours moderately hazy deep ruby brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big cherry, orange peel, raisin, plum, pear, apple, red grape, caramel, brown sugar, toast, brown bread, light chocolate, clove, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of big orange peel, raisin, plum, pear, apple, cherry, red grape, caramel, brown sugar, toast, brown bread, clove, pepper, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Moderate earthy spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of orange peel, raisin, plum, pear, apple, cherry, red grape, caramel, brown sugar, toast, brown bread, clove, pepper, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly slick mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible quadrupel! All around awesome complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

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

Poured a dark, ruby red-brown body with decent head and lace patches. The aroma is one of roasted and sweet malts as well as yeast and typical Belgian yeast/spice but not much more complex. The beer hides the ABV and that is great, real smooth and medium bodied, easy to drink, great balance of sugary sweetness and touches of spice and dark fruits (getting something in the figs or raisins area). This is an easy to drink and quite relaxing quad but I just took off points for lack of complexity within the style.

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is very dark brownish red in color (black when viewed from afar). It poured with a quarter finger high off white head.
S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts are present in the nose.
T: Much like the smell, the taste has flavors of roasted malts along with lots of Belgian yeast.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather drinkable because it hides its alcohol very well. I couldn't pick up any flavors of the underlying Quadrupel.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Served in a small snifter from a large bottle.

Hazy dark brown with a durable, creamy, dark tan head that leaves superb lacing.

Very good and typical (if that's possible) aroma, but the flavor is a bit disappointing, especially In the aftertaste where eventually a mildly bitter and burnt flavor is almost all that is left.

Feel: full, or near full, body, medium and very soft carbonation.

Paid $15 for 750 ml bottle. Served in a goblet.

Appearance - What you would expect of a quad, nice and muddy looking. Nice fine small bubbles in the little bit of foam that you get on a pour and lacing left in the glass.

Smell - was supprised. This does not smell like any quad I have had. Sharp, fruity maybe? Not rich and boozy and dark but light, sour smelling.

Taste - at first, coffee and cigarette smoke but only breifly. Not tasting any fruit like I do in other quads. Very quicky it goes to bitter copper pennys and way later long after it is gone the taste can only be described as if I had licked an ashtray. I concede that many folks like a bitter beer and for those folks I would say that the beers flavors go together well and seem cohesive. No weird gaps on the flavor ride or any watery-ness. Unfortunatley, I am unable to find the complexity that others can taste in this beer.

Mouthfeel - Decent mouthfeel. Not thick or velvety or super slick but nothing at all to complain about.

Overall - Please note that I like the rich, malty, sweet, boozy, dark beers (Gouden Carolus Van De Kaiser Blau, Leffe Brune, St Bernardus 12, Gulden Draak, Marzens, etc.) and I just dont like bitter beers...at all....ever. That being said, this is one of the worst beers I have ever had. Folks that like a huge, bitter, hop presense have a good chance at finding this to be a good quad and not your usual Belgian.

Very interesting and tasty.
