13 oz. poured into tulip on tap at the Hay Merchant in Houston, TX
(drank 11/11/13)

L: black indoors (hard to tell but might be 100% clear); no stick, almost no lacing

S: fruity; toasted something; tamarind; soy sauce; cherry pie ... malty for sure and very interesting, lots going on

T: muted sour grapes/wine; fruity; dark malty to the point of tasting very stout/porter-like; completely hides the 10.8% ABV

F: nice, solid carbonation, full feeling with a solid weight

O: so it's not Rochefort 10 ... so what? it does very much come off as a quad, which is awesome as far as this Texan is concerned ... I'd love to see more of our USA breweries tackle the trappist monk styles; it's sweet, malty, a bit like a wine, fruity and is good enough that I'd like to try it again.

impossible to score for me but forget the numbers -- it's a brew worth trying, if for no other reason than to taste a Texas-made quadrupel

a dark brown almost black pour with a finger of head which quickly dissipated. tons of licorice on the nose, chocolate, raisins, brown sugar, molasses. i tend not to like quads because they are too sweet, but this is very well balanced overall.. the flavor is sweet up front and a tiny bit of booze makes its presence - tastes of raisins, prune, brown sugar, licorice, roasted grains, a bit of wooden flavor to it in the finish adds a touch of smokiness. medium in body on the heavy side with a good amount of carbonation makes this one pretty enjoyable each sip.

glad i got this in a surprise trade i did.. like i said, not a style i tend to like but for what it is, i like it.

The Black Quadrupel poured a very dark hazy brown with hints of ruby red. The aroma was dense with the signature Belgian yeast, dark fruits and sweet caramel malts. It had all the flavors of a deep rich Belgian quadrupel with the bubble gum yeast, dark fruits and spiciness to match. Hidden behind it all was some dark chocolate undertones and the sweet caramel malts. Definitely a lot going on in this thick and hearty brew that coated my palate with it’s creamy confection. I hope Real Ale takes this out of the Brewer’s Cut and makes it a regularly featured beer.

One of my favorite dark Belgian style beers this year. Sad that it is a limited release.

This is my last bottle so it got a bit of ageing.

Poor: opaque black ale. little head.

smell: malt and more malt. yeasty. little citrus or pine from hops. Very much what I expect from the style.

taste: all malt, light hop. Dark fruit -- plum pudding or currants

mouth: smooth and creamy. Similar to Left Hand Milk Stout on nitro. But no nitro here.

Overall: Yum. More please?

Best by 10.08.13

A: Pours a deep dark brown with a big fluffy and fizzy light brown head. Head thins and fades away slowly with great head retention. Light, fluffy chunks of lacing left behind.

S: Big sweet dark fruits. Prunes, figs and some raisin. Plums even? Mild char with bits of chocolate. Caramel is notable along with some cloves.

T: More sweet dark fruits. Heavy and rich flavors contributed by the roasted malt. Gives it a charry, anise flavor with some bitter chocolate (just a hint). Sweet throughout with heavy caramel. Light acrid char in the finish, barely breaking free of the syrupy sweetness. Mild cloves and spices between sips.

M: Heavy body, lower carbonation, syrupy sweetness. Feels like lead in the belly.

O: A nice quad with the roasted malt providing a nice layer of complexity. Super sweet and super heavy, like drinking pure caramel at times. Tasty and enjoyable.
