The reviews don't lie. This is a marvelous beer. Meticulously balanced with just the right amount of herby notes that work in sync with the moderate carbonation that really opens up the beer. An absolutely pleasure to drink

2016 vintage. Pours opaque, dark brown in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is raisin, plum, prune, baker's chocolate, and alcohol. Medium heavy bodied, sweet, moderate carbonation. Right up there with the very best quads I have had. Super smooth and very pleasantly flavored. I love the way the flavors easily blend together with this one. I want to find this again.

A: 2013 vintage on the label with a date of 28|03|14 on the bottle. I guess it's a 2013 vintage released in 2014? Almost cola like coloring. Barely any head. Lots of floaties.
S: Fairly boozy. Reminds me of the Trader Joe's Vintage Ales from Unibroue released every year. That another dark ale "brewed with spices." A bit of sweetness and a bit of vegetable-ness.
T: Chewy molasses caramel up front with herbal/medicinal tones in the back. That doesn't sound nice, but it is.
F: I'm not feeling as floored by this one like I do when I have a Rochefort 10 or other regal Belgian quads.
O: I bought this 2013 vintage in 2015 and aged it a year before consuming. I decided to bust it out when the other day I saw the same store I bought mine selling 2010 bottles. A fun brew that doesn't have quite the fame or mystique of some of the other big boy quads. Something every Belgian beer nerd should notch.

2015 vintage

L - Dark dark brown no head

S - smells like rum fruitcake, delicious

T - Well that's something, dark fruits, brown sugar, a bit vinous. Not boozy at all, a bit sweet

F - Dry mouthfeel, fine carbonation, goes along very well with the taste.

O - A great great quadrupel, one of the best I've had so far. Looking forward to try the 2011 Grand Reserva I have
