Best Before 02/17/2020: Pours so dark brown color that it looks black with a huge 2-3 finger thick foamy head that looked creamy on top and didn't budge for a while, literally about 5 minutes. The head was packed with bubbles and faded extremely slowly, leaving a creamy layer on top and nice spotty lacing.

Smells of malt, brown sugar, toffee, syrup, molasses, herbal notes, light peppery spices, dark fruit like cherry, raisin and plum, and then some mild booze like dark rum. Some peat moss and earthy notes come through late, along with more sugary sweetness, but overall this malt bomb smells really good.

Tastes starts off with bread crust, caramel, brown sugar and toasted grains, followed by dark fruit like raisin, cherry, plum and a rotting pear. The bready notes, yeast and peppery spices linger and bring out coriander or allspice, then shifts to dark rum and mild barnyard funk. Complex is an understatement, as this changes slightly with each sip with the one constant being malt dominant and tasty. It's got a kick, but it doesn't seem like an 11.30% ABV beer.

Mouthfeel is incredibly creamy and smooth, even with the alcohol burn and mild heat this brew manages to slide down easy. Very mellow carbonation, a medium to thick body and a nice balance of sweet and spicy make this a Belgian classic that finishes with peppery spices and a yeast driven chalky finish. Overall a really tasty and enjoyable slow sipper.

I love stouts (ya think?). And I'm learning that I'm a malt guy. A malt-head... Mr Malty? Not really up on the lingo but I'm realizing I can't just drink RIS's for the rest of my life. Thus it was time to start diving into the Belgian end of the pool... and just by reading reviews I knew I was going straight for the QUAD...why mess around right?

I was nervous... but it took only one sip to be hooked! I loved the way it looked in the glass... dark ruby/brown with a beautiful head...mmm smells great.. a lot going on

A slow sipper, good mouth-feel... and man just one of these knocked me on my A**. Def going to share it with a special someone next time.

Btw, do these monks add psychedalics to this beer or what... I feel weird :)
