Poured a rich, cloudy dark amber/brown with a one finger-off white head that receded leaving a bit of lacing. Very true to form for a quad, quite nice. Scents of bubblegum, Belgian yeast spiciness, candi sugar sweetness, cherry, caramel, sweet spices, raisins, dark fruit, prunes and a hint of alcohol. A very rich, complex aroma, fitting a Belgian Quad. Flavor begins with Belgian yeast spiciness, tart cherry and candi sugar, sustaining spice and tart cherry throughout the sip. The middle moves into raisin, plum, sweet spices, peppery spiciness in the background, some apricot pit-like bitterness, dark fruit and dark chocolate. There is faint alcohol towards the finish, which also has a yeasty, spicy and dark fruit quality. Very rich, sweet, spicy and complex. A well done mix of flavors. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy bodied, with low carbonation and semi-drying finish. Very good for sipping, though almost smooth enough to gulp. Excellent feel. Overall this is an excellent Belgian Quad. The usual flavors are there and the addition of cherries during fermentation add a nice tartness in the back of the aroma and flavor that is quite pleasant. Its a very good beer that is rich, warming and complex. This is one to go out for.
