On tap at Granville Moore in DC

Review from notes:

Pours a dark brownish-orange w/ a beautiful one finger cocoa head. Excellent lacing on the side of the glass. I'm super excited about this one, as I love the regular Gulden Draak. The nose is Belgian yeast, fruits, raisins, dates, and spices. Not quite as complex as the standard Draak. Taste is the same- it's just not quite as amazing and complex as the regular Gulden Draak. It's still really good- just not amazing. Feel steps it up a notch. Very little of the 11.3% ABV is evident- they hid it somewhere. Overall, this is a really good beer that falls short of great. Cheers. (633 characters)

A solid quad, had on tap at brasserie beck in downtown dc.

Pours a darker shade of orange that is solidly opaque. Im used tomseeing quads a darker color, but it looks nice with a ring of head and good lacing.

The smell and taste have a lot of traditional 'belgian' flavors
I'm used to from traditional breweries including a nice yeasty note and a heavy dose of syrupy, candy medium color skinned fruits and apples. Some very nice spices hit in the taste especially that are a nice counterpoint to the sweetness and light booze in this brew. Dates and raisins as well, I imagine with a cheese plate this beer would be amazing.

The feel is slick and not overly boozy. Medium to lighter in body compared to most quads.

Overall good by not overly memorable. Worth a try, though maybe not at $11 a pour... (805 characters)

Possibly the most dangerous beer sampled at the BBF. This was debuted here, and will be hitting the states readily available soon. I hope so much that it is as good in bottles as on tap.

A - Dark garnet pour with a nice big, creamy light brown head that clings around nicely. Really solid appearance.

S - Good Quad notes here, not too too overthetop with the dark fruits or sticky sweetness. Its a good balance of both.

T - Like the nose this is a wonderful spot on balancing act. The flavors arent quite as potent, infact, almost too subdued. The 11.3%, its off in another time zone. Zero ABV on the taste.

M - Yeah, I almost think this is a misprint...no way this can be 11.3%. Actually asked the guy 3 times if he was sure the ABV was correct. This is by far the least alcoholic quad I've ever had, hell, might be the less alcoholic feeling for a big beer I've ever had!

O - The man at the booth was correct and we all agreed, this stuff is DANGEROUS. Such a high ABV packs great flavors and appearances, but the lightest of mouthfeels. This is a scarey kind of dangerous, by the time you feel the ABV you've slammed back a couple and its too late. Will be buying many bottles of this. (1,193 characters)
