look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A: poured into a Chimay chalice. poured a 2 finger off -white head with almost no lacing. Has a murky brown appearance.

S: Aroma is ripe plums and dates,: mildly boozy and yeasty smelling.

T: tastes of plums, raisins, dates,cloves hints of toffee and maybe the slightest hint of Turbinado or dark sugars. Very hard to nail it all down. Too many flavors to comprehend.

M: starts off as crisp but then does a 180 and finishes malty and creamy.

O: This is maybe my third sampling of a quad ever so I wouldn't say that I'm an expert on the style ' but this is easily my favorite of the others. I had this bottle in two sessions. The first time it was slightly over carbonated for my liking, too much like champagne. So I corked it and drank the rest the next day. I also paired it with some smoked Gouda and muenster . Wow what a difference. This quad has so much going on here . Yes it's cliche' but it is indeed very complex in all aspects. Believe the hype, It's that good. You know when you see a picture of a trappist monk and he's always smiling with a red nose and rosy cheeks? Now I know the source of his joy.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Smell: subtle red grapes and bitter dry chocolate hit the nose very nicely

Taste: dark fruits, especially currants, milk chocolate with barely noticeable maltiness, I roasted almonds, and creamy strawberries dominate the taste buds during every sip you take

This beer pairs incredibly well with T-bone steak and mashed garlic potatoes; this beer is a must

33 cl bottle into a tulip glass, produced a soft creamy tan head with very good retention and lacing. Colour is a deep garnet ruby brown, deep rummy brown, very opaque and rich. 4.25

S – a full array of spicy phenolic fruity notes, an amazing complex aroma. Plums, black pepper, dried lemon, rich caramel, leather, so rich. Toast malt, lot of earthy character, with a hint of zesty alcohol. Barn warehouse, and a nutty aspect, peaches. Steller 5

T – spicy plummy notes and a toasted butterscotch note. Subtle clove spice with a zesty fruitiness, toffee cake, sea salt, slight leather, oak forest. A bit of caramel sweetness, rich red fruits, cherry, defintely a lot of port flavours and maybe some dark chocolate in there somewhere with the brown sugar, so smooth with great complexity. Full finish, warming alcohol, thick spicy malt. Balance is very good. Such a delicious complex quad.

M – full bodied, very rich feel to it, luxuriant fruity spiciness, drinks far lighter than the abv, rich malty body, slick feel on the finish and nice dry warming aftertaste which really ties it together. Carbonation is quite slight allowing the flavours to really dance. Drinks very well. 4.75

One of the tastiest and most complex quads to be sure, such a full rich flavour to it that it carries through very nicely. A bit of a dry tannic finish. All round amazing beer, that is far too refreshing and drinkable to be 11.3% but then the richness hits you and the warmth, so good.
