4.5/5 rDev +8.4%
A: deep brown in color with highlights of orange. lots of visible carbonation rising quickly to the top sprouting a massive bubbly almond colored head that almost overflows out of the glass yet mysteriously manages to defy gravity and physics and stay within it's bounds.
S: deep fruity smell of green apples, raisins, purple grapes combined with a medium heavy brown sugar malting and a kick of alcohol on the nose near the end. This is going to be epic.
T: Taste is a massive explosion of sugary malt, dark fruity flavor with a slight acidity (green apple?) and a noticeable, but not overwhelming, alcoholic bite. Nice throat warming as it slides with ease down into your belly. This is on par with some of the best Belgian Quads I've had.
D: Pretty damn good and easy drinking. Great flavor, great aftertaste and even though the ABV is on the higher end it's almost barely noticeable...but will limit how much you can drink.

A: Pours a dark caramel or burnt peach hue with a two to one and one half inch head, slightly off white. Very nice lacing on the sides of the glass.
S: Plum/Prune, raisins, molasses, nutmeg and other spice notes. Molasses was the smell I noticed the most, reminds me of those Moravian Cookies. Very little bitterness with a fairly strong alcohol aftertaste.
T: Fruit notes strike the tongue first taste, initially I had to let it warm up as I do most of my drinks. The taste grew sweeter and I began to taste what I smelled.
M: Heavy mouth feel, it almost seems to stick to the tongue.
O: A nice drink all and all, I was surprised in how easy it was to drink, though it does pack a punch.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into Founders Bolt Cutter glass.
A: Beautful amber with orange and red tints. Nice 2-3 finger white head that lasted for a bit. Some lacing.
S: Lots of malts, some sweet fruits.
T: Roasted malts and fruity sweetness. Hints of fruits like of raisin, dates, bananas. A bit of spiciness and the characteristic Belgium yeast.
M: Medium body and carbonation. Sweet up front, and the alcohol hits you towards the end.
O: Really nice quad. One of my favorites in the group. This will have to become one of my regular purchases.

4.48/5 rDev +8%
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Boulevard snifter. Pours with two fingers of variable sized bubbles that fade quicly.
S:Bread, sweetness and Belgian yeast aromas
T: Somewhat sweet, mildly tart, full bodied bready with only slight hop character. Only mildly boozy, the 10.5% is well hidden
M: smooth, lots of bubbles on the tongue. An soon as it hits my tongue all my taste senses hit overload.
O: I probably could have scored this higher but I've only had a handful of quads. Would definitely drink again.
