Tried at Beer Bistro in Toronto (from notes)

Appearance: It has a nice dark brown color to it with some amber hues. It has a nice creamy off-white head that dies down slowly and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of dark fruit (raisins and prunes), spices, sweet malts and Belgian yeast.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a nice dark fruit character (mostly raisins and prunes) sweet malts, caramel, spices and Yeast.

Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a great overall balance and feel and complexity.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas. Great Quad!

Pours murky dark brown beer with huge tan head, thick and lingering for a long time. Very complex aroma: nuts, portwine, dark fruits, commonly semi-sweet. Taste is full, similar to aroma, rich and fruity, a good deal of alcoholic warmth. Medium carbonation and heavy body.
The highest class beer.

From an 11.2 oz bottle into a chalice.

A-The beer poured a dark cola color with hints of red. I was a little zealous with my pour and got a few bits of sediment. There was a one-finger, mocha-colored head that thinned out slowly.

S-The beer has brown sugar and cola smell that was not nearly as fruity or heavy as I would have expected. Instead, there was just a touch of dark fruit like raisins, figs, and plums. I also picked up a bit of mineral-like alcohol.

T-A smooth flavor of well-integrated malts with hints of pepper complement the dominant brown sugar and dark fruit. The maltiness gives a little bit of chocolate flavor that gives way to a clean, medicinal alcohol on the finish. The alcohol, while noticeable, is well integrated at 11 point whatever percent.

M-There is a brief burst of carbonation on the opening that transitions into a medium bodied brew. A nicely balanced, slick feel to finish.

O-Very Euro...I dug on the subtle flavors and complexity, but could have used a little more wow factor to really push this into my top tier. That being said, I wouldn't hesitate to drink this again with some cheese.

Dark brown colour that has maroon tinges in it and is topped with a bubbly tan head that starts about a thumbs width tall and halves in size where it stays for upwards of a couple of minutes. Dark fruit and a lot of sweetness; there is dates, plum, raisins and sugar to name but a few. There is also maybe just a slight bit too strong an alcohol burn from it towards the end.
Medium bodied and very smooth indeed with medium to strong carbonation, a lot of spice and great depth with some alcohol but this is hidden well for the most part.

A - Pours extremely dark brown, almost black with a one finger head. Very beautiful looking. Leaves decent lacing.

S - Raisins, plums, some wheat, dates, figs, bubblegum, red oranges, coriander, and flowers.

T - Completely follows the nose. And I mean completely. No alcohol presence either.

M. Medium carbonation and a medium body.

O - Overall, there is not a single complaint when it comes to this stuff. And it is incredibly drinkable for almost 12%.
