This is a very good quad. It's lighter than my ideal quad, but still has a nice, complex flavor that invites you to sip slowly and think about what you're tasting.
Very good head and I admittedly sipped before smelling so I can't say much about the aroma, except that there was nothing off-putting about it. The color is an opaque red-brown. The bottle style and alcohol level suggests that this beer may be even better aged, though I drank it only a 5 months after the batch date printed on the label.
Definitely try it. :D

4.4/5 rDev +7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
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.
