A: Pours a dark, murky brown with a pillowy, lingering khaki head.

S: Aromas of ripe plums, red grapes, oak, spices, port, and dark chocolate are abundant on the nose. Complex and welcoming at the same time.

T: Notes of port, spiced pears, cream, pepper, plums, dark chocolate, red table grapes, and oak wash across the palate. The finish is spicy and sweet with notes of dark chocolate, oak, and port.

M: Full bodied, creamy, silky, and smooth. The alcohol is very well-hidden. Very easy to drink for an ale of this strength.

O: This is one of my favorite quads. It is also one of the best barrel-aged beers I've tried. This is one not to miss.

2008 vintage. Tulip glass. Thanks to spry for opening this one.

Pours an opaque very dark amber, some lacing and medium colored khaki foam with some big bubbles and a ring of head. Smells like green apple, dark cherry, and some bright caramel. As it warms, dark fruit, barrel spices, and some apple comes out. Taste is fruity (apple), subdued caramel malt, and a hint of chocolate. Medium body and light carbonation, doesn't show the alcohol at all. Overall, a pretty tasty quad, balance with barrel characteristics which support the other flavors well. Nice job.

2008 release into a goblet

A - Pours a beautiful deep but translucent mahogany with half a finger of splotchy tan head. Head fades to a collar pretty quickly and leaves only small amounts of lacing.

S - Caramel and toffee, a bit of candi sugar, rum-soaked plum and fig, a bit of cinnamon and pepper. Very inviting aroma.

T - Initially a bit sweet, with candi sugar and caramel, but very quickly the sweetness is balanced with some spices that bring a bit of dryness, plum and a bit of raisin, and some noticeable alcohol. Finishes mostly dry, though there is some lingering sticky sweetness.

M - Initially medium with soem sticky sweetness. Finishes with some dryness.

O - Very enjoyable quad from Struise. There is some apparent alcohol, but it is not detracting in the least. It really works well with the fruits and spices.
