This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a golden burnt orange ruddy brown color. Thick foamy white head that dissipates nice and even and then messy stringy lacing. The aroma takes in crisp sweet Belgian sugars, plums, raisins, mild sweet Belgian yeasty/bready, subtle vanilla, creamy almonds. The flavor takes in a nice blend of the sweetness to the spices. Lingering sweet bready/sweet to spicy aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body, surprisingly a bit more sessionable than I thought. Carbonation feels good. ABV barely reveals itself, wow, damn well hidden. Overall, damn fine quad, I would love to have again.

Pies bright amber with solid head and abundant lacing into 4oz glass. Smell is right bread and malt. Taste is same with maybe a hint of malt. Bready, yeasty( smooth, and enough drinkabiliyy and complexity to make it fun to keep sipping. Very good beer.

Dark amber, verging on red, with a large, bubbly khaki foam.

Smell is butterscotch, caramel apple, and light phenols.

Taste seems hot at first, but I think that is just the phenols catching me off guard. This is paired with sweet caramel, toffee, spices, banana and toast. Full-bodied, finishing dry.
