Honestly the best quad I have ever had. Westy XII is out there somewhere for me to try, but until then this is the bench mark I hold for all top tier quads. Damn this is good stuff. The nose is out of this world with figs, blackberries, raisins, prunes smelling liked they were soaked in a spiced rum and let age in a toasted oak barrel for a few months. Some goes for the flavor, except there is a little more noticeable alcohol on the palate. Either way, I am buying another one of these before the store runs out and letting sit for a few months.

Found this in a strip-mall kiosk outside of Luquillo, Puerto Rico (Kiosk #25, El Revlou) where they have 150+ craft & imported beers in their cooler. For $6.47, there was no way I could pass it up.

It looked wonderful, even though they had put it in a plastic cup (I was appalled, too).

The smell was wonderful (figs & raisins) and I couldn't wait to tear into it.

The taste & mouthfeel were as good as anything I've ever had; almost perfect. It was so good that I looked down after a few minutes and it was gone. Fortunately, they had a few more for me. That was very considerate of them...

Overall, this might have been the best beer I've ever had. However, when I got home and went out to buy a 4-pack or 2 for the house, I was jolted by the $25 price; it was almost cheaper at the bar by the beach!

This is a wonderful beer everyone should try at least once.

330ml bottle into a goblet.

Pours an opaque dark ruby, almost black, with a light tan one finger head. Really decent head retention and lacing throughout.

The aroma is full of dark fruits such as plums, raisins, dates, and figs. Is quite vinous with a very red wine-like aroma. Some notes of sherry and cranberry. Quite nice.

The flavor provides even more depth than the aroma. Plums and grapes along with sherry and a hint of vanilla. More dark fruit washes over the palate with some oak and plums. Bitterness is on the moderate side with much of the perceived bitterness provided by the alcohol. It is never harsh but is definitely noticeable providing a nice, pleasing warmth in the chest and throat.

Overall, an amazing Quad and one of the best Trappist beers out there. So many complexities in the aroma and taste it is a brew that every true beer fan should experience.

A - Cloudy dark brown with a 3-finger head

S - Dark fruit, like a plum with a bit of alcohol. Hints of caramelized sugar.

T - Strong dark fruit flavor, mixed really well with some caramel and brown sugar. It's sweet with a bit of an earthy finish.

M - Medium to Medium+ carbonation, with a very silky smooth feel, the flavor lingering after the sip is not strong and actually tastes pretty good.

O - Very surprised by this, after having some other Quads. This feels like a goldilocks Quad, not too sweet, but not too dry, with good, strong, complex flavors
