Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass.

A: Slightly hazy, dark amber. Thin head which dissipated quickly.
S: Belgian aromatic, hint of ethanol
T: Definite warmth from the 11.8%, yeasty undertone similar to all weyerbacher beers I've tried so far. Nice belgian estery flavor, ethanol is there at the end. Lighter flavors dominate as opposed to dark raisin flavors found in other quads. A little phenolic.
M: Smooth but needs to be sipped. Low to medium carbonation.
O: A good quad but not my favorite. Improves as it nears room temp. Would buy again but there are others I would buy first.

Nice color; head dissipates quickly. Lots of flavors from malt to fruit. Good alcohol warmth and very smooth. A definite favorite I'll add to my list of "must have again".

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

12 oz bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, deep, dark, mahogany color, speckled with reddish highlights and an eighth of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into an extremely thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Very aromatic. Lots of toasted malt, imparting notes of freshly baked dark bread, followed by lots of candied sugar, dried stone fruit, such as raisins, prunes, apricots, dates and figs, as well as quite a bit of Belgian yeast, which gives off earthy aromas of leather, tobacco and some barnyard-y aromas as well.

Taste: Delicious! Lots of flavors of toasted malt, dried stone fruit, such as raisins, prunes, apricots, dates and figs, followed by some candied sugar, toffee, and Belgian yeast.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied to slightly chewy and very smooth as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 11.8%, there is a very pleasant alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: This is a very good American version of a Belgian quad. Very true to the style and delicious. I’m certainly getting this again.

Bottle dated 11/18/14. Pours brown and murky with a small head that fizzles away. Aroma has that typical Belgian yeast spiciness with some burnt sugar. Flavor initially follows suit, but then plunges into a phenolic nastiness. Took two swigs, once while cold and once after the beer had warmed up a considerably. Sadly I had to drain pour this beer. I hate band-aidey phenolics so couldn't even choke this down.

Fills a goblet with a murky brown, thick liquid with almost no head despite an aggressive pour. Smell is lights with brown sugar, raisan and alchohol present. The taste is sweet on the front end, with brown sugar, dried fruits and then a moderate alchohol burn on the back end. This had the creaminess of a good stout. I've had better Quads, but overall this was enjoyable.

Easy to drink, which is very dangerous considering the ABV. Smooth taste, with a little bit of a strong alcohol taste. If you just want to chill out with 1 or 2 beers, I highly recommend this. Enjoy
