Cellared 3 years, drank on March 23, 2015.

Tastes more like an English Barleywine than anything else. I don't sense very many Belgian qualities at all. Also, there is surprisingly too much carbonation, despite the age.

The nose us wonderful with nice raisin and chocolate notes.

750 ml bottle was poured into a chalice.

Appearance: A one finger off white head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark crimson color with no vision of anything. Pretty typical for a quad.

Smell: Raisins, figs, plums, and bananas followed by caramel, toffee, bready malts, and spicy Belgian yeast. Nice warm alcohol in there too.

Taste: Same as above. Dark fruits, nice malt flavor, and deceiving warm alcohol. Tasty and delicious.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, warm boozy alcohol, a little chewy, a little sweet, and low to medium carbonation. Quite the sipper.

Overall: Wow. A bit sweet for a quad, but very enjoyable considering it is from 2012. I will look for more bottles from the store I got this. Could age for a longer time.

Tasted a lot more like an old ale than a quad to me.

Deep caramelized malt, toasted notes, and bourbon.

Tastes like caramel corn, with a touch of bourbon heat.
