The head is almost non-existent and completly disappears after few seconds. The color is dark with some dark red and brown reflections. Very cloudy.

The smell is sweet, and so is the taste. Fruits (maybe grape and berries) and sugar mostly.

Full bodied and well carbonated, the alcohol is well hidden considering it's a 11% beer.

A: Pours a deep murky mahogany with about a half finger of light khaki colored head. The foam settles in a decent amount of time, leaving a light frothy layer across the top of the beer. There is some serious lacing as it drinks.

S: I get raisins, banana, grape skin, and soggy bread. It's not the best smelling beer, but it's pretty typical for the style.

T: It starts off sweet with big raisin and brown sugar notes. The soaked bread, banana, and even clove flavors, comes on in the middle. As the beer transitions the sweetness remains as some alcohol notes begin to shine through. Having said that though, it's very well hidden. I would not imagine that this is an 11+% beer, if I didn't know what it was, or that it was a quad.

M: Full bodied beer. It's sweet and coating to start, bready and yeasty in the middle, and sweet and slightly boozy in the finish. This beer coats the palate but slides off nicely.

O: Very good beer. I'd drink this again. Quads typically aren't my favorite style, but this beer is really pleasant. It's a sipper though, for sure.

I am reviewing a bottle I have aged for over one year (2011). 'Best by' date is 18/05/2016. Hope to come back sometime when I can compare fresh and aged side-by-side.

A: Pours a rich brown with some red color, somewhat translucent. Very slight head that died off quickly. Little lacing. Very well carbonated that settled quickly.

S: Sweet, malt, some caramel, raison, dark fruit

T: Taste rich malt, but surprisingly, the taste is not as sweet as the nose. That is a good thing. Lots of spice, raison, and dark fruit. The alcohol is amazingly well hidden. I can tell it is there but it all balances very nicely. Great taste with some complexity and spice that lingers nicely in the mouth. The flavors and balance seemed to be shifting as the beer warmed up so please sip this one slowly and enjoy the full range of flavors this Belgian offers.

M: Surprisingly light mouth feel, perhaps because it is so well carbonated. It still coats the mouth nicely and lingers without being sticky or sweet.

O: A great beer that is worth the price. I have one 2011 left, I plan on buying a few more bottles to age a few more years and then try a vertical so I can determine exactly what aging does to this beer. This first beer is definitely a hit.
