This is a great Quad for an American Brewery, it's up to the standards of any Belgian ale but with a little bit of uniqueness of American style. Ive tried the sampler which as three different years with the oldest being the 2010 if I remember right. Saving that for a special occasion!

Poured into snifter from bomber

A-dark amber with reddish hue. big off white head thick clinging lacing (4.0)

S-dark sugars, molasses, raisins, (3.75)

T-sweet and boozy. flavors of molasses, dark cherries, figs, raisins, and some burning booze (3.75)

M-some carbonation, full bodied, (3.75)

O-not one of my preferred styles as it is a bit too sweet for me with a boozy punch. The sweetness lingers which makes it less drinkable for my tastes. (3.75)

First rating under the new system, so let's try this out...

This beer pours a nice dark brown. It has a strong presence and a nice full body. Its flavours are of molasses and toffee, but it also carries a strong sweet flavor like a Belgian. It is full bodied but well rounded and is easy to drink considering its strength. Overall it is another strong offering from Ommegang, but not my favorite.
