Poured into a Firestone Walker Teku

A - Poured dark brown/amber and hazy. Liberated 2 fingers of creamy tan head that slowly faded. Floating particles on pour that settled on the bottom after a while.

S- Dark fruits, slight citrus, malty, toast/bready, alcohol but not strong. Many some toffee/caramel or chocolate? Very interesting nose.

T - Just a wonderful mix of flavors, nicely complex. Similar to nose, with raisins, plums, cherry, figs. Slightly sweet on the palate.

M - Good carbonation, smooth and a great boozy warmth. Considering the ABV it drinks nicely. This could easily catch up to me.

O - Stunning example of a strong dark Belgian ale. I had it once before and I was hoping I wouldn't be disappointed this time around, I was anything but. Really a rich and complex beer. One that must be tried.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: creamy head with bubbly appearance around ring of glass, dark brown, opaque, holds slight head nicely

Aroma: sweet malt aroma with deep dark fruit complexities, Belgian yeasty aroma yielding notes of prune, fig, pepper, with sweetness of heavy malt usage coming through nicely

Taste: rich malt heaviness balanced out by yeast fruit flavors, bready malt taste, with spicy phenols exhibited to counterbalance the thickness of malt, can taste the high alcohol content but not enough that you would suspect of being 11.5%

Mouthfeel: silky, tongue coating similar to a stout, slightly cloying but in a good way such that you take small sips and enjoy for long time. Slight prickle on the finish from carbonation and alcohol percentage. Moderately dry finish

Overall Impression: tremendous Trappist ale, further evidence that these beers deserve their own special classification. With strong notes of dark fruits and slight spiciness from hops to balance out heavy dark malt bill, this beer packs a punch that will knock you on your ass on the first sip. The heaviness will leave you satisfied but the complexity will leave you intrigued down to the last sip

Bottle Served into a tulip shaped glass

Apparance: Dark murky brown amber with a thick white head. I can see particles floating around.

Smell: dark citric fruits like plums, peaches, wine grapes, and a hint of alcohol.

Taste: raisin flavors, plum, dark fruits on the tip of the tongue and in the middle forefront and yeasty, bready, on the aftertaste. I can taste the alcohol in this one. I would say that the dark fruits are the most dominant flavors for me.

Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated, medium thick.

Overall: This is my favorite Quadruple belgian strong ale. It is blended well for the amount ABV it contains. It goes down very smooth for having high gravity of alcohol. This is a special occasion beer, and it is definitely meant to be sipped on.
