330ml bottle from Northmead Cellars, into a Mikkeller wine glass.

Murky, muddy brown water. Yellowy tinge to the off-white foam that recedes quickly and then disappears.

Lot of figs to smell, along with raisin & prune juice. Held onto this for some time and there's no booze to smell and it seems quite settled.

Tastes of raisin and prune juice. Time has made it pretty approachable for the abv. Fruity, not boozy.

Larger bodied, stil get some carbonation to stop it seemingly becoming too heavy. Warming, long almost vinous finish.

Good beer. Something I haven't drunk in seemingly forever. Consistent, a big warmer and something to savour slowly. I wouldn't rave about it, but its quite solid

Finally found it and got my hands on three bottles.... saving two of them for a few years.

Everything to me about this brew was exceptional to me aside from a Tad over carbonated for my "personal" taste.

The smell was terrific the taste followed the nose and overall it is a nice balance of everything... the look was ehh.. nothing to rave about but it looked pleasing. best quad I've had and a must get when you see it.

Maybe after 5 years it will lose a little carbonation and be a 5

11.2 oz. bottle poured into goblet
(11/07/17 printed on label; bought this in February, let it sit in the fridge until June)

L: murky caramel to darker brown with lots of debris; big head for a beer poured into a goblet, at least 1/4-inch or more. ugly as can be with all the stuff floating around in it, but the base color and head are awesome.

S: sour grapes/wine but with sweet malt ... sweet biscuits/bread. it's a constant back-and-forth between these two things for me: sometimes more wine, sometimes more sweet light malt.

T: lots of alcohol and very wine-like but damn is it good. sweet grapes with a fantastic malty foundation; it's like a candied sour apple.

F: so perfect, so much carbonation with a perfect medium weight -- the carbonation makes it very drinkable and truly Belgian

O: a personal favorite

A - 3+ finger, long lasting, cream colored head, leaving thick lacing on the glass. Incredible amounts of yeast left in the bottle (bottom and sides). Thick, pure dark color from a nut brown pour. Holding up to the light reveals tons of yeast or malts out of suspension (slight detraction for me).

S - Cherries, prunes, dates, candi. Well blended and medium.

T - Initial notes of nuts, followed immediately by sweet cherries, prunes, banana, and candi sugar, followed yet again by a nutty malt, and finished with a wave of cherry sweetness. Some spices come through as it warms.

M - A little sharp and bubbly. Chewy; starts to foam in my mouth as I let it sit and chew on it. Slightest bit of warmth from the alcohol (11.3%!). Coats the mouth in sediment and yeast, especially as the beer warms, leaving an additional, lingering sweetness.

O - I really like quads, and this is the best I've had so far. I can't really imagine improving on the taste. Maybe I'll be forced to re-review after having Westy or St. B, but for now, this is one of the top beers I've ever had.

Bottle date says 140317; not sure how to read it, so I don't know how aged this is or is not.
