look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottle poured into a goblet.

A- pours a deep, murky ruby/brown, with a huge, rocky light khaki head that dissipates in a few minutes. Good lacing.

S- Deep dark fruits, Cherries (expected), figs, prunes, etc. Some caramel with a heavy does of belgian candy sugar. Some yeasty funk is there as well.

T- Deep dark fruit notes, cherries linger. Candy sugar and belgian yeast are present as well. Some nice tartness there to try and balance the big sweetness of this one.

M- light side of heavy bodied. Ample carbonation. Dry on the backend which plays hand in hand with the tartness mentioned.

O- Not quite the authentic Belgian Quads, but a stellar effort from an american brewer.
