Good Quad. Not a style done well by many US Brewers (except Ommegang). Pours a clear brownish/amber color with a small bubbly and frothy white head. Lots of light comes through in the glass. Average head retention and little bits of spotty lacing.. Smell is not as prominent as some quads, but malt and dark fruit are noticeable.

Tastes very good. Dark fruit (plums and figs),malt, some candi sugar type sweetness and a little spice. There is an alcohol presence but it is warming rather than harsh. I have aged this beer a few years so I didn't expect it to be hot.

Mouthfeel is rich and smooth with a warming alcohol presence. This quad is well worth trying.

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
