Picked this up for Championship Sunday in the NFL. Gotta have cool shit to drink while I'm watching good football you know. Side poured with standard vigor from the bottle into a Chimay snifter.

Appearance - Pours a deep mahogany color with a finger of off white head with decent retention, some lacing but not much. Packaging is interesting, since it came all the way from Belgium before it hit my lips!

Smell - Dark fruits (figs, raisins), dates, certainly some booze! The boozy character comes out as it warms more. Caramel also makes an appearance

Taste - The dark fruits are again in full effect at the beginning of the drink. Strong malty backbone is present with breads in the middle and towards the finish. Some sweetness, again the caramel are also players on the palate. Complex, but a little underwhelming.

Mouthfeel - Finishes smooth, with a sweet kick and a definite alcohol burn. The booze is hard to run from here.

Overall - This is a good beer, and certainly an experience given it is one of the Beers of Fame, from Belgium, and expensive, but honestly, I think there are plenty of better Quads. Don't get me wrong, it is excellent and highly recommended, but I'd take Three Philosophers over it anyday, especially for the price. But check it out when you get a chance.

Short head - less than 1 finger, quickly dissipated; no lacing. Large effervescent bubbles initially. Murky brownish plum color. Notes of clove, biscuit, Yeast, banana. Notes carried through the taste with long finish. Full mouthfeel, some effervescence continued, pronounced on the tip of the tongue.

Great beer, classic quad along with St. Bernardus abt 12

poured into a Westy 12 glass

A: pours dark molasses brown, with very carbonated head that is just below that of cola.( fizzy head that dissipates rather quickly).

S: the smell is quite light to my suprise. big bready yeasts, grain, some sweet brown sugar, light hints of dark fruits, very light sweet molasses. pretty underhwhelming.

T: more brown sugar, molasses, touches of dark fruit and even some acidic tangerine, and an ever slight slight touch of banana bread. i do pick up a slight chocolate and bubble gum that helps pull this together. alcohol is present but is definitely lighter than what was expected. i also pick up on a spice but its hard to pinpoint exactly what it is.

M: on the lighter side of medium, with big carbonation. but it coats the mouth with a terrific sweetness that distracts you from the big 11.3%. there is an alcohol heat, but it honestly fits perfectly with this brew

O: solid beer all the way. the belgian yeast is simply awesome and the complexity is off the charts. with each and every sip, a new aspect is introduced to the palate.

from the samichlaus to this. right on!
a soft, easy pour turned into a billowing, huge head which creeped ever near the rim of the mug. super tight, creamy head, though! beautiful, dark murky (to claim an adjective from the last reviewer) and i also get where he identified a little 'purple'.
2nd pour resulted in the same over-foaming and beautiful lacing. hoping to get the entire 11oz bottle in by the 3rd pour.
smell is of dark fruits and malt and the taste is the same.
overall, it's a great brew. especially for the abv. i prefer the 6 and the 8 over this one but i love the whole line up regardless. quite a wallop in two 11 oz beers tonight.
