Look: Opaque cola black with light brown highlight the head is thick and eggshell colored. Medium activity.

Smell: Dark and vinous on the nose. Reminds me of sticking my nose in a glass of termpernillo. Notes of dried fig, honey covered dates, whole wheat raisin bread, molasses, earthy damp cellar, and a pronounced alcohol.

Taste: Surprisingly fruity on the attack with notes of fresh fig, fresh dates, and a plum. This fades slowly to a body of raw honey, molasses, dark chocolate covered dark cherries, whole grain bread, a lightly umami note like portobello mushrooms, caramelized raisins, light baking spices, fig jam, and a warm pronounced alcohol.

Feel: Big bodies. Thick and sticky on the palate. Quenching on the body with a bone dry finish. Warm alcohol that is just a bit abrasive. Carbonation is medium and helps the beer move quicker across the palate then the body would suggest.

Overall: A truly world class Belgian Quad. The beer is rich and complex while staying subtle and nuanced. It’s big for sure but the flavors stay smooth and delicate. It is pretty amazing how clean each flavors is. It never even comes close to desert level sweetness or a sugar bomb like some Quads can wind up being. If I were to nitpick the alcohol is just a hair too much but aging might smooth it out a bit. A real treat.

Everything about this beer is perfection. My absolute #1 I've ever had.

From a 12oz bottle with a best by date of 13.10.2020. Pours a cloudy, dark reddish-brown with a modest tan head that quickly dissipates. Dark fruit flavors, toasted malt and alcohol on the nose and palate. Very well made, to be sure, but perhaps not my most favorite beer given the high ABV. Best with food, I suspect.

Very nice Beer, watch the ABV. Beautiful color and a nice aroma. A little fizzy but an excellent sipper.

It’s the New Year (2018) and I’ve been tasting a few strong beers like this over Christmas.

This one doesn’t disappoint. It pours dark red with a tight creamy head that dissipates pretty quickly.

The aroma is a viney boozy fig type smell and I immediately think of strong cheddar for some reason.

The flavour continues where the aroma left off: boozy fig juice. A great beer.

Pours a light tan head with moderate lacing and retention. The color is a dark golden brown. Compared to St. Bernardus 12, I feel the flavors are more subdued and harmonious. Dark fruit flavors are dominant but not overpowering, and the alcohol taste is hard to find. I'd prefer this beer in the mid-afternoon without a food accompaniment, whereas St. Bernardus 12 would be better suited with a heavy meal. This is a beer I'll come back to as a great example of a well-crafted quad and one that I could enjoy outside of winter.
