A: Very dark, opaque brown, looks like a hazy cola. Tan colored head quickly recedes. You could mistake this for an imperial stout it's so dark.
S: Aroma is mostly caramel and dark fruit; you can also detect the alcohol.
T: Rich flavor of sweet brown sugar, dark fruits, some warming booze (but not overwhelming). It's also kind of spicy and a little tart.
M: Medium bodied, smooth. The carbonation borders on being too aggressive on some sips but overall I like it.
D: It's delicious and I could sip on it all day if it weren't for the prohibitively high price and ABV. I'm going to be sure to pick up a few more bottles to cellar and compare to this fresher experience.

looks deep dark brown, with a thin and non lasting off white head that is very rocky and good lacing.

lots of dates and raisins as well as some distinct sourness with a strong sugary smell. no hops at all. I had to come back to this but after I tasted it I was able to place one of the scents as butterscotch.

oh my god.... OMFG! everything in this beer that defines the style is here, but in an extremely well balanced fashion. sugary sweet and fruity, all the while having a light buttery backbone and sweet extremely light peppery alcohol. I could go on about the flavors in here but i wish to move on to the mouthfeel.

moderate body but full mouthfeel, slightly creamy essence and extremely light carbonation. sweet and dry balance in the finish.

as with most quads, drinkability is where this truly exceptional brew falters. Far to thick and filling to be a session beer, and a bit to sweet to mix it up.

Holy crap....I have seen this beer on the top 100 and have been wanting to try it, I tried the 8 an was not super impressed, but this beer blew me AWAY. On top of all this I can barely taste the extremely high amount of alcohol that this beer possesses.

A: pours an opaque black brown, with some floaties in it, in to a Brewers Art goblet with a finger of tan head that hangs around for a long time and leaves beautiful lacing.

S: leather, sweet fruits, figs, grapes, plums, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, apples.

T: mirrors the nose well. The complex sweetness is amazing; from fruits like plums, apples and dates to sugary sweetness like caramel, candi sugar and dark brown sugar. There is some spice that balances it beautifully.

MF: the spice adds astringency, its got a great medium body with a lite chewy-ness and good lite carbonation.

O: I do not have enough good things to say about this beer, easily my favorite quad and one of my top beers.

Bottle date : 22-02-11 Some would say 'fresh', some would say 'green' but either way never dissapointing.
A puposely sloppy pour produces a murky dark liquid with a tall light brown head of foam that takes minutes to droop and coat the goblet in sugary lace. Grainy sedement from the dollop of yeast dregs I decided to add, detracts from appearence but lends a little character and depth.

Ripe fruit and yeasty phenol aromas pour off the beer when swirled. Smokey undertones along with flavors of chocolate and rasins, sweet brown bread and berry pie. Hop bittering and flavor take a balanced but respectfull backseat to the malt / yeast love affair going on in this beer. Sumptuous and subtle, complex and refined with layer after layer of flavor.

Mouth feel is slick and hefty but not heavy. Its hard not to call this full bodied as the barrage of flavors coats your entire mouth, but it doesnt overpower in any way. On the contrary , its so drinkable you can take large gulps and fight your self to not swallow. Alcohol is always lingering in the background but is so completely folded into the beer it is only really noticable as a mild burn in the long, warm finish.

Absolutely outstanding strong Belgian ale.

Pours a dark brown color with a huge frothy head that left layers of sticky lace on the glass. Aroma was very malty and caramelly with notes of banana, dark fruit and some herbal hop notes in the nose. Taste was quite rich and malty. Lots of flavors of malt, dark fruit, figs and chocolate balanced with a nice hop bitterness. This is a pretty full bodied beer, almost a meal in a glass. Amazing that the alcohol is so well hidden at 11.3%. This makes for high drinkability and can sneak up on you if you're not careful. Recommended, but not for the faint of heart.

A= Very Dark earthy Brown. No light is going through this one. Kind of has almost a purple glow to it. Lots of yeast swirling in this one. Nice Tan head that sticks around for awhile which kind of surprised me because it had such a high ABV. I was really impressed with the appearance in this one.

S= First thing I picked up on the nose was Figs. I also got some bread crumb aroma and some toasted malts. Overall though it was a very Sweet nose.

T= Taste is similar to the nose the dark fruits really come out in the taste (figs,dates,plums). Alcohol is pretty well hidden by the dark fruits and toasted malts. Really good taste on this one.

M= Full bodied. Good carbonation

O= Overall very impressed by this quad one of my favorite quads really interesting and I couldn't beat the price I picked like six of these up for like $3 a piece IMO a great deal.
