EVERY time i have this beer it absolutely BLOWS. My. Mind. The malts and booziness and sweetness and dryness are all perfectly balanced with dark fruits and plums. This is a perfect quad ale i.m.h.o. I dont get how this beer hasnt gotten more higher or even perfect reviews. I mean there has to be a least a couple perfect beers in each style... ???? !!! ?!?!?

Poured from a caged and corked 12.7oz bottle into a Chimay chalice. Picked this up from Woodmans on the West Side of Madison, WI. I think a steal at $11.99 for a four pack, but I am partial to this style. Bought a pack about a week ago and went back to get 2 more a few days later after my first taste.

I usually don't comment on packaging, but this could be the coolest product packaging I have come across. Heavy duty caged and corked bottle with a bowing, hooded monk on the front. Perfect.

A very dark pour. Only a shade off of a stout. Thin tan head that hangs around for a while. Almost no lacing.

Brown sugar, sweet dark fruit with almost a grape-like taste in the middle, which maybe the plums. Nice slightly bitter cocoa aftertaste. Alcohol is hidden well, but there is a nice little alcohol burn if you concentrate

Small bubbles. Nice champagne like carbonation, which lasts throughout. Thick full and creamy.

I am very partial to this style so I tend to rate this type of beer highly. But this is a really great American made Quad. Thank you Sierra Nevada for this wonderful beer at such a great price. I would compare this to Abt 12 or Chimay blue. If you can get a hold of this one give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
