Look: Deep mahogany red, surprisingly less opaque than expected. Head was relatively small but I may have been too careful pouring it.
Smell: Malt, caramel/toffee, some plum.
Taste: following the mouth. Sweetness of malt, caramel, and dry fruits. Honeyed. Alcohol is present but smoothly so. I'd describe it as brandy-like, for some reason.
Feel: bodied and alcoholic. Carbonation is medium to high and "prickly". Not strongly astringent but the aftertaste is not too sweet as well.
Overall: extraordinary. Enjoy every sip of it... with care.

Exceptional. And, happily, more available than most outstanding quads in excellent restaurants in the U.S.

L-Pours a beautiful two finger headed beer with a deep mohagany/rich amber/dark brown color. The beer's head has an interesting, almost original build to it.
S- The aroma is pretty faint, but still nice. I get dried fruit, molasses cherry, molasses, grape/wine, alcoholic booziness, maybe some liqueur, a little bit of fortified wine, slight clove and banana as well as some prominent yeast. By the way, the aroma gets better as it warms.
T- Sweet cherry, molasses, banana, dried fruit, slight spice, even slighter bitterness. Very malty and rich. Overall very, very nice, well crafted Quad with very straight forward and honest flavors.
F- Low carbonation, dry.
O- This beer sticks perfectly with the style. It's extremely well crafted and worth a try for sure.

Appearance: thick, dark brown; muddy; beautiful creamy tan head that doesn’t seems to dissipate at all

Aroma: dark dried fruit-raisin, fig, prune; molasses; a little toasty/smokey; earthy; a hint of leather and tobacco; cherry; banana; yeast

Taste: starts with some cherry and a hint of banana; quickly explodes into lots of other flavors-molasses sweetness, big malt, some earthy notes, toast, more cherry; finishes with the other fruits-definitely raisin, fig, and prune; some port-like notes; just a hint of spice on the back; aftertaste of a nice red wine and little earthy; this thing is packed and complicated!

Mouthfeel: very nice; creamy; thick; full-bodied; perfect carbonation

Overall Impression: wow, there is a lot going on in this thing; the nose is surprisingly subdued compared to the boldness of the flavors; like all great Belgians, this is balanced so perfectly that it’s a little scary and only gets better as you drink it; nothing dominates-all the flavors are noticeable and harmonized with the others; dangerously smooth and drinkable at 11.3%!; it’s very complex-I’m sure my notes are a least a little off in both aroma and taste; an excellent beer

Found this beer in the back of a cooler I. Ghent Belgium. Last one of these they had. Was obvious why, it’s excellent. 11.3% and the taste and feel is outstanding. It’s a winner.

One of those beers that makes you wonder why you drink anything other than Belgian!

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Gorgeous beige head atop a murky brown body, great lacing. Fragrant fruity, boozey smell.

I love the way this beer warms! So many flavors come out. Dark fruit, raisin, plums, apples, pears. Almonds, cashews, nutmeg, cinnamon. Warm and comforting. Loved it!
