330 mL into trappist glass. Pours a dark hazy brown with yeast floaties and a thick, brown head that sticks around. Loads of carbonation. Aroma is all around with some cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, black cherries, plums, raisins, slight coffee, yeast, and alcohol. Taste is bubbly up front but then becomes super creamy with all the flavors mentioned above cascading at once ending finally with a dark earthy, oaken finish. 11+% is dangerously well hidden with not too much warming. 2/9/2009 8/5/9/4/17=4.3

Poured into a La Trappe goblet.

A: Deep chocolate, almost opaque with a light tan head that lingers for quite a while. Good carbonation.

S: Indubitably dark fruit with hints of grape. Almost a wine-like nose. Slighty spicy, yet maintaining a very fruity sweetness.

T: Intensely flavourful. Hints of chocolate, a lot of dark fruit flavours (figs, grape). A very rich body of roasted malt which gives a very wholesome sweetness to the beer. Spicier than I expected - almost peppery. Finishes incredibly sweet and earthy, with a lingering fruitiness. The alcohol is almost nonexistent until you start to feel its warmth at the back of your throat and on your face and lips, which is dangerous for an 11% abv beer.

M: A rather average mouthfeel, considering the appearance of the beer, but not in a bad way. It's very comfortable to drink, not overbearing. Very good lacing of carbonation.

O: A very good beer. Incredibly well-balanced and drinkable, even at the staggering 11% abv. My only gripe is the spiciness, which came on a bit too strongly for my liking (interestingly, the spiciness became increasingly subdued as the beer warmed). However, that's just me, and this is still a beer that everyone NEEDS to try.

Pours very dark. Smells of plum, fig, dark fruit, raisins. Tastes like the rainbow. Plums, grapes, raisins, subtleties of chocolate. Never over-bearing, near-perfectly blended. I can hardly taste the alcohol, which might not be good since this is 11.5%. Mouthfeel is smooth, borderline unsettling, but not quite.

Overall, this is a sensational quad. And it's ridiculously easy to find, which makes it even more worth checking out if you have not!

Served in a pint glass

A- Absolute perfection. A creamy haze of both reddish caramel and deep amber topped with a massive head and few spots of sediments.

Smell- A lot of dark fruits. Definitely plum and cherry with maybe a hint of raisen.

Taste- Again nothing short of world class. One of the few beers that manages to balance a high alcohol concentration with the other flavors found throughout the complexities.

M- Creamy with a nice lacing of carbonation.

O- Continuously world class, and has yet to disappoint

Slim bottle pours into a pint glass.

Pours a chocolately brown, dark and rich. Light on the foam. Dark fruit nose, plums and raisins. Taste is smooth, dark fruit taste. Taste and mouthfeel is full and rich. Nutty. Lots going on. Shockingly not boozy for an eleven abv.

Really good, but i think you all knew that.
