Got this as a father's day/birthday gift from my son!

Pours a dark brown, opaque color. The tan head starts at 2 fingers and sticks around nicely, with a fair amount of lacing.

Aromas are very rich and complex, with ripened fruit notes, molasses, oak wood, alcohol and vanillas. A real delight for the nose.

The taste is dominated by a strong malt character, with caramelized brown sugar, dark breads, toasted grains and a bitterness of dark chocolate. A nice warmth of alcohol is also in the background of flavors.

The body is thick, with a high amount of carbonation. The finish is of caramels and chocolates; moderately sweet.

I found this to be a delightful strong sipping beer -- perfect for a nightcap.

11.2 oz bottle chilled and poured into Pretty Things wine glass.

Light brown head composed of tiny bubbles. Cloudy orange ruby colored body. Head both holds and laces the glass well.

Awesome smell, which is usually my gripe with Quads. Berries and raisins. Caramel, and some slight booze. All characteristics fairly subtle and enticing.

Yeast is quite flavorful- puts off fruit and musk character. Ultra warming to the esophagus. Aftertaste of dark sugar and dried fruits. Bitterness is strong and well suiting. Overall hop presence is minimal. Almost has a herbal or root flavor. Very Earthy.

Surprisingly thick mouthfeel on such a booze filled beer. Mouthfeel is perceived as being very alcoholic, but still very drinkable, dangerously drinkable.

At first it was almost too much and I wasn't sure I liked it. But as I sipped on I found myself enjoying the huge variety of flavors I was pulling out. My palate eventually adjusted to the complexity and intensity.

Superb example of a Belgian Quad.

Pours a darh, hazy, reddish brown brew with a tall head that quickly gives way to a thin lacing. There are sediments at the bottom of the bottle, which I always pour into the glass, since I found that, if anything, they add a bit more spiciness to the drink.
The smell is amazing, with caramel and raspberries blending in with the more subtle raisin smell. Tastes like raspberries, raisins, with a malty sweetness and a hint of spiciness from the alcohol along with a very pleasant and subtle belgian yiest sourness. Of medium body and carbonation, this is a very easy to drink beer, the only trap being the alcohol concentration.
