I have been cellaring that for a long time.
Dark brown color with practically no head.
Aroma with notes of prunes, molasses-toffee, mild coffee, chocolate and some nobel hops.
Flavor with notes of prunes, molasses, lots of chocolate and burnt coconut, licorice, vanilla, wood, cognac, candied banana and a bit of raspberries. Dry and bitter aftertaste. After all this years, its 78 IBUs mellowed out.
Bordering full sticky body with low carbonation. Alcohol of 10.2% is well disguised and complements flavor once it warms up.
After all this years it really went back to its Quad origins with its high IBU mellowing out and caramel sweetness and esters gaining strength. It did remind me of a Brazilian manjar desert, which is coconut pudding with lots of caramel and prunes. I guess the chocolate is the Imperial Stout tweak, and maybe the high IBU when young. This might be better younger given that.

Tap @ Small Bar, Bristol - Pours dark black with a thin tanned foamy head which quickly disappears. Medium carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma - Dark chocolate, roasted coffee, fruit notes - raspberry. Taste - Sweet front , charcoal, dark chocolate, roasted coffee, licorice notes, light bitterness at the end. Surprised to see this listed as a Quad as it felt more like an RIS to me, a nice one to boot.

Bottled 2/13/2012.

This one pours a fairly dark brown, with a surprisingly active white head- it never truly dissipated while drinking this. There's a little bit of lacing.

This smells like molasses, brown sugar, sherry (oxidation), raisins, prunes, acidic coffee, and prunes. I get a little bit of cardboard on the nose.

I'm surprised- but this honestly tastes a lot like Dark Lord. There's a huge sugary dark fruit character, and it's quite sweet- and the sweetness really does remind of that mythical evil being. There's some dark brown sugar, a bit of chocolate, and fruity acidic coffee. It's definitely oxidized at 5 years old, but I don't get any actual cardboard in the taste, just sweet sherry. I can tell this may start falling off quite soon, though.

This is medium bodied, a little bit syrupy, with a lower but still active level of carbonation.

This is a very interesting beer. I'm curious as to what it was like fresh, but it's still quite nice 5 years out.

Muddy dark brown with a large tan, fluffy foamy head that clings like coral and dies to a thin film and ring.

Smell is nutty grape, raspberry, apple, light toast, with a touch of Brillo pad.

Taste is suh-weet caramel, prune, fig paste, apple butter and ginger snaps.

Slick yet bubbly and semi-dry.

At first smell, I thought this might top St Bernardus 12, but this is really overly sweet and has just a hair too much dark fruit, like straight prune juice. I may have had this a bit too old--I had forgotten I had allowed this bottle to reach the 4 and a half year mark!

I had a 0.25l glass from draft at Arendsnest in Amsterdam on 26SEP16, for €4.75. Oddly, their blackboard listed this as a Russian Imperial Stout, not a Quad....

It was jet black, dense and opaque. Had a creamy but short tan head, fine and thin, with excellent lacework. The aroma was delicious! Reminded me here of a barleywine, with rich malts and loads of dark fruit (raisins, currants and dates). It was very smooth and medium bodies, though I thought it should have been more viscous.

While the aroma was all about dark fruit, the flavor had more bitterness. There was some dark choco and espresso, then a bit of dark fruit, but not what the aroma led me to believe. A solid, tasty bier, though a bit less than what I had my hopes up for. Cheers!

5/8/11 bottling pours a dark dark brown color with a huge khaki head.

This smells pretty crazy. Its dank and cheesy with old hop character, minerals, roast and candy sweetness.

The taste is sweet with chocolate, raison and some earthy grain roastiness. Some booziness to the finish but enjoyably so.

This is medium to fuller bodied with modest carbonation. A pretty decent brew that is stuck somewhere between quad and stout.

Beautiful rich dark color and perfect lacing.
Smells of currants and raisins and malty sweetness.
Drank at cellar temp. Delicious.
