Poured from a 750 ml bottle into an Ommegang tulip glass.
Appearance: Hazy deep brown color with ruby tints. A creamy tan head faded fast but left some nice lacing and a frothy cap that lasted throughout.
Smell: Bready, yeasty and fruity with deep plum and dark cherry accents. Very nice.
Taste: Much like it smells, dark malts and Belgian yeast gives way to an underlying sweetness with the dark cherry flavors lingering on the tongue. A very deep and warming brew with a little alcohol heat on the first couple sips, but no overpowering alcohol taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied. Smooth, creamy with that nice cherry aftertaste.
Drinkability: Some may not like the cherry flavor, but I think it's what gives this excellent Quad it's edge. Very tasty and easy to down a 750 ml bottle in one sitting. Although at 10% ABV, I'd probably stop my session after one big bottle. I will definitely seek this one out again.
Serving type: bottle
