2012 Vintage
Poured into a snifter.
A - Pours a very dark brown with a small head that disappears quickly.
S - Aroma is dark fruit, and I keep thinking if I breathe deeply enough some alcohol will come through.
T - Flavor follows the nose. Dark fruits with little sweetness, almost dark cherry. Some barrel.
M - Low carbonation, medium mouth feel.
O - Delicious beer. Make sure you let this warm to almost room temperature to let all the flavors come forward.

2012 Vintage. Dark chocolate pour with mahogany hues, and a reddish brown colored head @ 2 fingers. The head fizzles out quite quickly though docking the score a bit, although this is 10% to be fair and most in the know, know that more alcohol equals less head.

Deep, black cherry and currant with tons of oak barrel here on the nose. Some bourbon like sweetness and syrup and alcohol burn invades the nostrils eloquently.

Tons and tons and tons of flavor. Cherries, plums, currants, black licorice, anise, herbal, oaky woodiness, and straight beautiful burns from the alcohol. The sour qualities aren't there quite as much, but this drinks more like an intensely aged mahogany barleywine than anything. It's still delicious.

Insanely carbonated while being super sticky and wine-like at the same time with plenty of resins, vine, and grape juice qualities. It fades dry...super dry.

This beer drinks like a wine, punches like a barleywine, and tastes like a quad. This is a superb accomplishment. By the end of the glass I'll be gone, but I'll have enjoyed the ride immensely.

2012 beer, reviewed in 2016. Pours very dark brown with a sudsy head that dissipates quickly. Smell is sweet with a huge very dark carmel note. Taste is dark fruit, raisins, etc. Again- a big molasses note with a little burnt bitterness. The 10% isn't noticeable at all. Full bodied and well carbonated. Overall- it's nitpicky but the dark sugar/molasses is strong enough that the beer is a little one note but it's still a very solid quad and a great beer.

A 2012 Reserva poured into my St Bernardus chalice. Sweet, dark fruit complimented so nicely by the oak barrel presence. A pleasure and easy to drink at 10%, one of the best quads I have had recently.

Poured out as a muddy brown color with a thin cream colored head on top. The smell has a good amount of dark fruit aromas and bready Yeast on the nose. The taste is sweet with more over ripe fruits a subtle spicy note in the finish. The feel is pretty rich but finishes dry. Overall it's a very good Quad, doesn't quite top Rochefort or anything but it's a close.

A: Pours a deep brown that is almost black with two fingers of tan head that fades into a frothy ring with little lacing.

S: Sweet candy sugar and Belgian spices up front with date and fig aromas following. The finish has a light Port and oaky aroma.

T: Candy sugar and dark fruits like dates and prunes hit first with a sweet yeasty flavor and oak coming through after. Molasses, hearty bread, and tawny Port flavors come though as well with a finish that has only a hint of alcohol warmth.

M: Medium body with moderate carbonation, this beer is dangerously drinkable for its abv.

O: An incredible beer, overall, and one of the best quads out there.

Drank the 2012 at Beer Mania in Brussels. Absolutely amazing beer! Very complex, smooth with a slight sweetness. This is one of if not my all time favourite beer I've ever tasted!
