3.84/5 rDev -5.9%
A - Pours a raisin color with light carbonation and sticky on the glass.
S - Brown sugar, yeasty bready presence, nutmeg, light alcohol.
T - Brown sugar, dark fruit - plums, figs, raisins, slightly spicy, bready, yeasty, light alcohol, mildly sweet dark Belgian candy sugar. Lingering caramel/toffee warm spiciness and warming on the way down.
M - Sticky, thick, full bodied, light carbonation but enough to be prickly.
O - Overall, a solid Quad.

330 ml. bottle. Pours an opaque brown almost black colour, with a head that fades quickly leaving a strong lace. Smells of dried fruits, figs, raisins, chocolate. Spicy and fruity. Sticky sweet palate, not much carbonation (and no needed). Taste of dried fruits, pepper, spices, chocolate. It warms your throat like brandy and leaves you asking for more, even with its 12º. Great.

Smell: the sweet cream and subtle mint is a fairly unique characteristic in beer, especially from a quadruple
Taste: milk chocolate, minus the heavy malts, pervade throughout along with ruby-red grapefruit; an odd pairing of flavor
The beer wasn't terrible by any means, even with the odd flavor combination, but rather, the beer was unique in its eccentricity; the beer wasn't life changing but I would recommend it
PAIRS very well with orange chicken for some reason

3 yr old 12 oz bottle poured into snifter
Given to me by local bartender that called it a pleasant surprise/mistake that these had aged and compared it to Westy.
Deep amber/almost purple darkness in the hue with a 1/4 inch bright white head.
Smell has a bit of dankness and sharpness almost like a raw cheese.
There is so much flavor playing in perfect harmony. Deep fruits almost like dried plums and raisins blend with a bright carbonated mouthfeel that ignites the booziness that is incredibly hidden for 12%. I'm not veteran enough to understand the flavors at play, but understand that it is supremely delicious and the best Quad I've had. Age these with care and you'll have a beer worthy of high regard.

This monster, with horns and fangs, that someone in Belgium decided to call a beer, pours a dark, cloudy brown that barely allows light through. The head poured a legitimate 4 inches and settled to a 1/2 inch after about 10 minutes. Lacing is decent against the glass.
The smell of this brew is like two raisins, covered in brown sugar, drank brandy all night and then got into a brawl in the alleyway outside of the bar...after neither one could call himself the victor, they self immolated, and that is where the toasty character of the brew comes in to play.
The taste is strong and complex. Sweet, pungent fruit (raisins) then sweet malt (brown sugar, maybe caramel) is followed by a toasted barley and balanced bitter flavor. The smell and the taste are absolutely connected. Spice is very hard to place...
Mouthfeel is smooth and heavy. Carbonation can't live in the realm of 12% ABV, at least in this bottle. Taste lingers for a VERY long time on the tongue, the scent permeates the nose and lingers as well - inescapable!
Overall this beer is a beast. Strong, complex, flavorful, and well balanced.
