A wondefully complex Belgian Quadrupel

A- Pours a dark copper color with a sturdy head. The glass had more lacing than I've ever seen when it was empty

S- So much comes through but I guess the dominant scents are bananas, coffee, chocolate, cloves, and other spices. Further in the background are notes of vanilla and dark fruits.

T- Just as complex as the smell: Chocolate, clove, banana, vanilla, stone fruits (plums?), coffee, and a slight sweetness imparted by the alcohol. My only complaint is the slight estery flavor in the aftertaste.

M- A little richer than a typical belgian and nicely carbonated

D- Very drinkable in spite of the alcohol content...although with a beer this delicious and complex, who'd want to rush?

A: View of what appears to be a relatively dark barleywine, small to medium chunky bits floating in the bottle especially with the last third of the bottle. More than the average dregs hanging in a bottle.

Smell of doughy bread, biscuit malt, belgian yeast, more dough and some dough. caramel also hanging out with must - not the egyptian kind though.

Taste of Dough , bread and toasted biscuits. There is plenty of caramel and yellow plum to go around. Some booze flavors definitely present as expected at 11.3% and some cloves with sourdough bread. If I could type dough again without regretting it I probably would...

Mouthfeel is medium with a light carbonation. Drinkable? yep

11.2oz bottle, best by May 16, 2012, this has about 3.5 years under its belt. Served at cellar temp.

Pours murky brown with a fair fizzy-looking off white/tan head that holds a small cap but doesn't leave much lacing.

Aroma is a lot of dark fruits, raisins, plums, figs, currants, grapes, good caramel along with toasted bread, yeast, some chocolate, a bit of molasses, candi/brown sugar. Very good strength and I seem to pick up something new each time I take a whiff.

Flavor is a rich combination of dark fruits, plums, figs, raisins, black currants, as well as chocolate, toffee, brown sugar, caramel, molasses, toasted bread and yeast. No real alcohol in the taste, but a touch of heat as it goes down. A bit of sweetness, not much bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy and lush, medium carbonation. Drinks all too well for such a big beer.

It's been a few years since I've tried the 10 and to be honest I wasn't blown away the first time...felt it was a bit on the watery side but this bottle certainly isn't. Very rich, complex and delicious. Definitely holds up well to some age.

Absolutely fantastic. You'd never guess this has an alcohol content similar to wine. The alcohol taste is certainly present, but perfectly balanced in the beer and by no means overpowering.

Overall a very well balanced beer in terms of its flavor and heaviness. It's rather expensive but it is simply delicious.
