Pours a deep brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is fruity sweet with currant and caramel. Flavor is very fruity and roasty to a lesser extent. Alcohol is noticeable, particularly going down but not nearly as much as the abv would suggest. Medium to heavy bodied, chewy texture.

Review number 600! Another milestone in the education of my palate...

A 330ml bottle with a BB of Aug 2015. Bought from a Belgian supermarket while on a trip in September 2010. This has since been cellared in my garage, and has hopefully matured nicely. The bottle is covered in dust and cobwebs...

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Managed to leave most of the yeast in the bottle. A deep reddish-brown hue with plentiful carbonation and chunky yeast sediment. Produces a large head of creamy tan foam that hangs around for a few minutes before slowly reducing to a surface layer. Aroma of rich, fruity malt with notes of raisins, plums, dried fruit, brown sugar, caramel and yeast esters. Sweet, vinous and slightly oxidised. A warming whiff of booze in the background; spicy and solvent-like.

Tastes of sweet, fruity malt with a boozy, lingering finish. Notes of raisins, plums, dried fruit, brown sugar, caramel, yeast esters and mild stewed hops. A vinous, wine-like quality pervades the flavour. Slightly oxidised, with hints of sherry/port. Dry, with a warm alcoholic finish that tingles on the palate. Mouthfeel is smooth, spicy and tingly, with pleasant carbonation and great body. Somewhat astringent, with an aftertaste of fruity malt and booze.

Tasty stuff - complex and well-crafted. A rich fruity character with a spicy, boozy finish. Quite sweet but balanced. The only thing that takes it down a notch is the subtle hint of oxidation in the aroma/flavour - this detracts from the overall quality of the beer. I wasn't sure how I'd compare it to other quads that I've had, but at this tasting I reckon it doesn't stand up to Westvleteren 12. I'll probably go over it again in the future, perhaps with a less aged bottle. In any case, this is still a world-class beer that everyone should try. Recommended - grab one if you can.
