Dark opaque colour, with a dense off white head, good lace. Smell of dates, raisins, chocolate, caramel dried fruits. Srong palate, full body, sticky. Taste of dried fruits, chocolate, port wine, licorice, alcohol, caramel, dates. A bomb.

Lordy, what a great beer of amazing dualities! Poured at a good temperature with a grand, foamy, fluffy, billowy, thick, light tan head that lasts and lasts, plus good lacing. Color is a clear mahoganey with plenty of bubble trails. Aroma is a clean blend of malt, caramel, toffee, fruit, and yeast. Flavor is like nose and at first sweet, but then plenty bitter with the carbonic tang enhancing and elevating both the bitter and sweet. I find myself going back to ponder the sweet and then the bittter. Then again the bitter and then the sweet. I can't hardly imagine this beer being better. Body is full, but not too, carbonation is perfect. Finish is like flavor, of average length, very clean, and a hint warming. The only reason I don't give it a better rating in aroma is my snooter doesn't work so well. Fabulous beer.

this is flat out up there with the best beers i have ever had, despite the fact that its nothing like a quad, or at least not like any i have ever had. brewed in 2012 the bottle tells me, i havent seen much of this one around, but found it on a dusty shelf down in the springs, score for me, this was on sale for like six bucks, what a steal! more head than you can imagine on the pour, i mean, its fizzing and frothing like a science experiment gone out of control, and i struggle to not waste any of the beer, the cap almost popped itself. the nose intrigues me right away, bitter orange peel and compost and again a yeast strain i have never encountered all grab me in a compelling fashion. what is this? not a quad as i know them, i mean, its not thick and sweet or even belgian in the least. totally different yeast, totally different grain build, but this one is about the synergistic whole, not the individual elements. there is a flavor here on the edge of fruity that comes on right after the initial rush of bubbles hits the tongue, but before the yeasty intensity sets in, and i cant quite place it. candied orange peel seems too sweet and acidic, a baked good of some kind, even a breakfast confection seems to heavy, and describing it as floral or blooming or even alive just doesnt do it justice. its familiar but not in beer, and i am in love with it here. the carbonation makes this drink like a session beer, the alcohol is wildly confusing to me, as the beer is only medium bodied without all the bubbles, but light as heck with them, and there isnt a sharpness of any kind. not sure about the yeast identification, its foreign to me, but id clearly does wonderful things to this beer. if this is what quad is in the netherlands, im moving. its that moving for me really. one of the best beers i have ever had, and reaffirms my new found love for de molen!!! this mouthfeel in this style is unheard of, and even if it tasted just okay i would score it well for that, but the fact that its so one of a kind yet totally incredible make it elite if not in a world of its own.

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

On tap In BLOWbeerBAR in Valladolid Spain. Very nice Russian Imperial Stout. It pours a black hole in your glass, with a little lightly brown head. Smell, is so roasted, with some chocolate, some toffe, lots of coffe, and strong hops, mixing. Flavour is so full, with lots of moka, chocolate, roasted malts, and rauch malts in it. Finish is hoppy and dry. Not so alcoholic. I would like to have another pint again...

Pours a four finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Dark opaque brown color, some yeast left in bottle. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Molasses nose and flavor is molasses, chocolate and dark cherry. Better flavor as it warms. Higher ABV is hidden. 330ml bottle $6.99 Julio's Liquors Marlboro, MA.

Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy brown color ale with a nice medium size foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of sweet Belgian-style malt with notes of dry fruits and light candy notes. Taste is also a nice mix between some semi-sweet malt notes with some nice candy-like ester and some dry raisins and plums notes. Body is full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very nice beer to enjoy by the fireside on a cold winter night.

Poured into an oversized wine glass from an 11.2oz bottle courtesy of jeffo. thanks man.

Pours a deep brown, nearly black color, opaque with the exception of the very base of the glass which rests a tawny brown hue. Heavily carbonated, a slow gusher which makes head very quickly which makes it fun to pour. Outstanding retention as well from the fine bubbled light brown sugar head.

Smell is almost quady, soapy notes, dark stone fruits, bakers chocolate and a date-centric finish. Almost like a chocolate version of how westy 8 smells.

Taste starts out with a smoky bitter chocolate chicory flavor. Followed by a hoppiness as well. End very sweet, almost like chocolate covered crystalized dates. 

Mouthfeel is a lot more carbonated and thin than I expected. Doesn't add to nor detract from the beer but not what I was expecting.

Overall I want more if these Jeff, I wanna put a year or 5 on these and see what they get going on.

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!

12oz bottle purchased for $5.99 at Calandro's in Baton Rouge, LA, poured into tulip. Pours a deep brown with awesome, perfect creamy off white head. Great dried fruit and boozey chocolate aromas. Wow...awesome chocolate, dried fruit, malty flavor with a hint of bitter hop. Some booze is present but not as much as I expected. So smooth and so creamy. The beer is like silk. This brew has one of the best "mouthfeel" ive ever had, especially one with such a high abv. This is a great brew...somewhat different than the normal Strong Dark, I think its less "spice" character than I normally attribute to the style, but its just so good. Go have one if you see it!
