review #200, had to bring out a big gun

330ml bottle poured into a snifter.

A- a murky, dark brown with some ruby highlights, a big light tan head dissipates very quickly.

S- big hit of dark belgian sugar grape musk. Some muted ginger and cocoa notes.

T- Rich and malty. Reeeeally sweet. Has the medicinal/belgian sugar flavor that tells you it's a quad. I get the grape musk notes, and there's complexity in the deep malty base. Peppery, cocoa, ginger. Slightly boozy. Taste lingers looong after the sip. Could use a much heavier dose of dark fruits.

M- very smooth, almost creamy, but the quite aggressive carbonation breaks up the party. Suprisingly, it's a touch dry on the finish.

O- Well done, but honestly, just too darn sweet. I would much prefer more dark fruits be present in the taste. Lets be honest though, I'm nitpicking a bit.

Wow, this was an amazing beer. My first endover into a Tripel. It was had notes of honey, banana, cloves, wheat, and some kind of liquor base, but not 100% sure. I have now had 3 six packs at ruffly $50 a piece. The only reason I don't have this at a 5.0 is because there was a batch that was off. I took it back to the LQ after drinking 3 and had them swap it out with the distributor because it was so bad. I know this brewed small batch style by Monks, so I guess I get it but at $8 a beer I really do expect perfection and often times I get it with this beer.

butter, caramel, gingerbread
alcohol noticeable but adds a small spicy kick that adds to the beer
sour breadyness
extremely long finish

This isn't my style of Quad, I like more dark fruit... That said, it's the best sweeter style quad I've tried.

Out of the bottle at Fin de SiƩcle in Brussels, Belgium.

A- Dark, cloudy brown body with a half finger white head that doesn't stick around for long. It does not look still, but it certainly does look mysterious. No lacing.

S- Raisin, fig, caramel, vanilla, other dark fruit, a bit of earth, yeast spices. Complex and strong.

F- Caramel, dark fruits- cherry, raisins- yeast spices, a bit of vanilla, sweet dark malt. Gets even better as it warms up. Very aggressive on the palate.

M- Full bodied, smooth and rich. Slight sticky feel in the mouth. Some dark fruit sweetness and alcohol heat on the finish.

O- Aggressive quad with a great mouthfeel and a nice complexity. One of the best in the style, and so readily available. It's great!
