Notes/Commercial Description:
A Belgian-style ale whose flavor is as bold as my wide's meatloaf - and four times as tasty, *b'dump-tssssh* But I kid, folks. This ale is a real mensch. We're here all week.

My first review in over a year.

I've been hanging on to this bottle for over a year, I think it is from their first run of bottles. I'm not sure how many batches they've made, but I know this is one of the first if not the first.

No head. Nothing. Nada. A very vigorous pour into a Duvel tulip and nothing but large bubbles that immediately burst. No lacing on the glass either. The color of the beer is wonderful. A sanguineous hue of garnet or burgundy.

I'm not getting a huge nosefull of smell on this one, but what I am picking up is quite nice. Very sweet and wine-like. Almost a barleywine smell, with a ton of dark fruits.

Like other have said, sweet with a hint of flat cola. Very interesting. A light mouthfeel for a quad.

I like this beer. I don't drink a ton of quads, but I'd certainly like to drink more of this one. Hopefully when the new brewery opens up we'll be seeing much more of this beer and other Belgian style beers from NEBco.
