750mL bottle poured into a tulip-style glass. It pours a murky brownish red color with four fingers of head (coincidence with this beer?). There is a bit of lacing on the glass. The smell is very rich and sweet. Lots of brown sugar and dark fruit aromas present. Nice and complex. The taste is fairly sweet. Super malty with lots of plums and dates. It finishes slightly dry though, with a hint of alcohol. The mouthfeel is decently thick and strong, and the drinkability is surprising for 10%. A decent take at a quad.

4.4/5 rDev +7.8%

Had on-tap at Thirsty Monk Asheville. Served in a small goblet.
A- Pours a light brown color with a 1/8 inch off-white head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a bubbly side patch of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thick solid ring behind.
S- It could be the incorporation of the four different yeast strains but this smells like it might be tart/sour. Slight booze fume.
T- Nevermind. No sourness, just some awesomely smooth Belgian candi sugar plus some vanilla and caramel notes. Incredibly drinkable for the ABV. Butter, burnt sugar, not very bitter. Also a bit of dark fruit.
M- Slightly zesty. Medium-low carbonation and a fullish body.
O- Haven't had this in so long and it's really a crime that I don't purchase it more often.
Edit: No, it was not intentional that I gave this beer a score of 4.4 but yes, it is awesome.
