750 ml bottle into chalice, best before 1/23/2017. Pours lightly cloudy pale ruby red color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, fig, cherry, apricot, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown bread, candi sugar, pepper, light clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, cherry, fig, apricot, apple, caramel, toast, brown bread, candi sugar, pepper, light clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of raisin, plum, cherry, fig, apricot, apple, toast, brown bread, candi sugar, pepper, light clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/fruity/spicy flavor balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, lightly slick/bready, and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome quadruple style. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

more mellow quad , pours dark, khaki head. aromas are strong even through nasal congestion I get booze, rum, ton of licorice, olive, dark fruits. flavor is very well balanced and good bitey feel. definitely not a bad one especially for fans of the style, because it is a solid example

Poured from 750 mL bottle into snifter. Stamped with #3067 1/23/17 (which I assume is bottle # and best by date).
A: Pours a dark orange-amber with 1/2 inch light tan head. Good retention.
S: Dark dried fruit, spicy Belgian yeast, cinnamon, clove, and sweet dark caramel malt. Definitely a sweet aroma.
T: Dark dried fruit (raisins, figs, dates)...tends toward more fresh than overly ripe or aged notes. Cinnamon, bready yeast, vanilla, sweet caramel malt, and a hint of rum.
M: Medium body...drinks much lighter than ABV. Silky smooth and sweet. Indulgent feel. Lingers decently on the palate.
D: A well constructed quad. Drinks very fresh...which is a nice change from the usual per style. Easily drinkable...too easily for the ABV!
