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.

Dark plum colored pour with a light tan head.

Fruity aromas - very wine-like in nature.

Rich, balanced flavors of dark fruits, berries and brown sugar.

Lingering flavors of fruit remain on the palate, however a rather dry finish in spite of that.

Overall a wonderful beer. Been looking forward to trying this for a while and i wasn't disappointed. ikt bit pricey to buy often, so it was a real treat.

Tulip glass.

A: Pours a deep copper with a finger of grayish tan head. Not much lacing but very good retention; a thick ring sticks around for awhile.

S: Lots of brown sugar, plum, a little cherry, some alcohol. Nice complexity.

T: A more subdued version of the aroma, tending more towards the fruit and malt and less brown sugar. Pretty dry, a bit boozy though not bad considering the ABV.

M: Medium-full body and medium-high carbonation.

O: Masterfully crafted. Superb balance throughout. One of my favorite quads.

A: Cola colored with a 1/4 inch light tan head - a mix of dense foam and larger bubbles with short retention.

S: Boozy cherry and fig. Fruity esters and light spice. Caramel and toffee.

T: First impression is earthy (almost muddy) dates. Light alcohol present. Over time the flavor profile shifts to cherry and brown sugar.

M: High carbonation, light body, fairly dry finish. Perfect in this aspect.

O: A great beer, both as a exemplar for the style and across the full spectrum of beer. A little pricy, but well worth the splurge.
