St amatus '12 vintage, consumed nov '16

Pours a hazelnut colored beer with a beige, foamy head, which vanishes immediately.

Smells of rock sugar, molasses and melted toffee, amped up by even more sugar.

Has almost no carbonation, drinks very thin apart from its sticky sugar sweetness.

Tastes of cane sugar, bakers chocolate, cardamom and pleasantly dry, leafy hops. Turns sweeter, malt defined during the midpalate with a subtle, spicy bite to it. Finishes watery with a just a malty touch.

Very sweet with a nice spice peak, not much going on apart from that.

Dark body and a splattering of tan head
It Smells like a good port
& the flavour is so complex & complimentary
candied peel, liquorice root & Sherry

This beer is pretty much too good for my feeble command of language

This is the best quad I've had
