From Tap to chimay chalice at o'brien's russian river weekend
Pours a dark ruby-red in color, forming a foamy one-inch head in the Chimay glass. The head's trail completely covers the glass is completely covered.
Smells of toasted bread, sweet, suggesting toffee. Candied fruit, figs, along with strong alcohol volatiles round the nose.
The taste follows with sweet malty notes up front, raisins and buttery figs. Really bready. Slightly bitter hops join alcohol spice (although subdued for 11%). Just a touch of grape-like tart toward the finish. Long sweet finish.
Oily slick, mouthfeel, full bodied and rich but never wee sticky. I'm drinking this way too fast for the alcohol, the beer is amazingly balanced. This is crafted as well as any Belgian quad.

This beer approaches perfection - and easily the best Quad I've had.
I'm not even going to try to describe it, but the balance and complexity are ridiculous. The finish is super long, spicy and classy. Would drink this at every opportunity.
An awesome beer. My favorite RR.

Poured a dark brown in color with burgundy highlights and a half finger of head that left some good bubbly lacing sticking to the glass. Plenty of dark fruit is noticeable upfront in the nose with nice belgian yeast sweetness, slight candi sugar, booze is present and hints of brown sugar. The belgian yeast character was more apparent on the palate alongside dark fruit accents, welll balanced booze that was not overwhelming, subtlt brown and candi sugar but with mild spice. The brew was medium in body with good amount of carbonation which has a sweet, yeasty, dark fruity, slightly boozy and sticky finish. Finally got to tick this beer after some years of chasing. Yeeahh!!

On tap at O'Brien's Pub in San Diego, CA.
Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, dark fruits, and spices. Taste is much the same with an alcohol kick on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some solid aromas and flavors.
