GLASS: Chimay Goblet
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 50 degrees
Pours a deep, dark amber with ruby highlights. Three-finger head of creamy tan colored foam. Great retention. Spotty lacing.
Big, dark fruit notes. Figs and dark cherries mostly, with a touch of raisin. Mild earthiness. Mild hint of booziness. Caramel malt notes. Smells sweet and spicey, overall.
Caramel malts out in front. Black cherries and raisins. Hints of figs. Touch of ginger and spices. Very slight hint of booziness. Candy sugars and hints of bananas.
In the mouth, it's actually a little bit thin, for the style, IMO. Nails the creaminess just right, though. Would benefit greatly from a heftier body.
For a drinkable, moderately priced american Quad, you'd have a hard time beating this one. Sure, you can go to the Belgian rack and get a better representation of the style. You'll also pay a little extra for it, though.
Despite it's 10.5% ABV, this is pretty darn drinkable. Just don't drink too many, too quick, as they will hammer you.

Sixth Glass pours a dark reddish color, with a nice large frothy lacing head. There is a sweet, wine like aroma. There is a rich taste, nice subtle dry fruit flavors, wine like flavors, and a nice warmth from the alcohol. Great body, and very good feel. Overall its a very solid and very tasty quad.

This is a really good beer! It has sharp teeth, so be wary of the bite - the ABV presents itself almost instantly. The taste is similar to many other quads but what makes this one unique is the taste of almond and overt caramel. The mouthfeel and the body are identical in many respects to other quads, but the level of smoothness that this particular one brings to the table is paralleled by few others. It's definitely worth a try. Kansas City has made big strides to match the monks' skills and pallet.
