It is a dark ruby-brown color with a big tan head. The aroms is spicy and yeasty. It is very malty with some fruity esters and a slight bitter choclate taste. It finishes with flowery hops, though the bitterness is restrained. There is also a peppery spice that helps balance out the malts. A delicious beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750ml corked/caged bottle served in a st bernardus oversized wineglass.

pours a murky, dark brown/mahogany with just shy of two fingers' light tan head; moderate retention, lacing all over the place. pretty much just how a quad should present itself in my book.

the nose is a potpourri of caramel malts, dark fruits, belgian yeasts, spice, and alcohol; more of the same transition to the taste with a big caramel malt presence up front... becomes a bit sweeter as it warms, muted notes of chocolate and spice. has a finish which is on the drier side and carries a bit of a boozy aftertaste. complex and very tasty, though i may quibble somewhat with its sweetness, which borders on cloying.

no real surprises with the mouthfeel: full-bodied, medium to high carbonation; creamy. at the end of the day this is a very nice though far from masterful quad. i will definitely have it again, though, possibly as part of a blind quad tasting... would love to throw it up against rochefort 10, westy 12, the koningshoeven quad, st bernardus abt 12, southampton's take on the style, urthel samaranth possibly, and maybe a local, say pretty things baby tree.
