I think I am becoming a fan of this brewery!
Poured into a pint glass this beer is a hazy dark amber gold. The tan bubbly creamy head head builds about two fingers high. It dissipates fast and leaves no lacing.
The nose is malt, fruit like fig, prune and date, caramel and booze.
The amazing taste starts with the fruit bouquet of prune, fig and date, maybe some raisin. Bread and dough flavors and caramel are in the middle. The malt and hop balance is remarkable. The alcohol is noticeable, but not overpowering in the taste.
I think I found a new favorite brewery. This beer is the best quad in my book as of yet!
Great, must try beer!

A big, creamy, beige head slowly turns foamy as it settles and glistens gold over a clear, reddish, dark amber (SRM 15). Columns of carbonation support the head as it slowly settles to one inch, leaving thick rings of lace.
Subtle plum and candy sugar are offset by faint funkiness. Warmth brings out fresh figs.
A Unibroue tulip glass presents a well-balanced quad that oscillates from slightly sweet to slightly bitter. Dark fruits of plum and fig are followed by a hint of tart cherry. The finish is modestly long and dominated by warming alcohol.
The full body has a viscous, silky texture. Alcohol is warm. High effervescence is capped by a dry finish.
This one warms quite well, developing character along the way. It makes for a contemplative beer that proves to be quite enjoyable on a cool autumn evening before dinner. I enjoyed it with a pungent, creamy bleu “Valdbon”. The cheese brought out a sweet fruitiness, otherwise not detected.
