4.33/5 rDev +4.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Beautiful mahogany hue under a healthy two finger beige head.
Smell: All sorts of maltiness, as well as dark fruit and some spiciness, and a little bit of the hops.
Taste: Good and complex. Rich dark caramel malt and dark fruit hit up front, with some raisin and herbal notes mixed therein. The hops finish nicely, and the alcohol is pretty well hidden.
Mouthfeel: Rich and chewy, with lots of sweet, tart, and spicy notes dancing around. Very low carbonation. The floral hops give a pleasant dry finish, and the alcohol warms well.
Drinkability: Yay for complex beers. This is a good and worthy adaptation of the Belgian quad style, and meant for slow enjoyment. I paired it with some rosemary & olive oil bread and a couple of mild Italian cheeses, and was quite satisfied.
Serving type: bottle
