Misc.: Best by March 10, 2016
Poured a caramel, amber color with 3-to-4 fingers of khaki tan, orange head. Good amount of layered lacing along the sides of the cup. Good retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled caramel, cloves, banana, honey, boozy, tropical hops and Belgian spices.
Tasted boozy, caramel, rye, citrus notes, tropical hops, mango, Belgian spices, cloves, banana and earthy notes.
Medium body. Creamy-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Earthy, boozy finish.
Not as good as I’d hoped. The other Belgians from Boulevard were much better.

This is my first attempt at a Quad, so I can't really compare it, just note my appreciaition. This one pours a cloudy reddish brown with a tall, large bubbled head. The head stuck around for the majority of the time it took to enjoy this fine brew.
The smell is rich and strong with a slightly sweet scent of dark fruit (dates, prunes, raisons) and a slight herbal undertone.
The taste is also very rich, with the alcohol hidden at first, but getting stronger as the liquid warms. There is a slight bitterness that tempers the malty, sweet nature perfectly.
As noted, the alcohol bites as this warms, otherwise its a pleasant sipper.
Oveall, I am very impressed as I have been with most Boulevard beers that I have encountered.
