11.2 oz bottle from Pearl Specialty Market and Liquor. Poured into a tulips glass

A - Pours a dark brown, almost black, with hints of red. This poured with a massive three-finger, creamy tan head. The head retention was fantastic. It took forever for the head to completely dissipate. Nice, thick lacing stuck to the side of my glass.

S - The aroma is quite complex on this beer. It starts out sweet with lots of dark fruits (raisins, figs) and sugars. Hints of chocolate are present. The alcohol is not hidden here. As the beer warmed, I found the aroma to become more malty with a nice caramel smell.

T - Dark fruits and sweet malts dominate. It's peppery a bit too. The alcohol stings you at first but then smoothes out into the aftertaste.

M - Medium-to-full bodied with minimal carbonation. A nice creamy texture exists. As mentioned before, the alcohol stings a bit but is quickly mellowed out.

O - An great, complex beer. It's a sipper but very enjoyable. Not something I would drink on a regular basis but great to have once in a while. I haven't had too many Quads recently so this was an excellent choice to get reacquainted with the style. The price tag wasn't horrible either. I paid around $6-$7 for the 11.2 oz bottle.

Sadly, I only bought one bottle at "Boo's" while visiting family in Columbus, GA. Poured into a Urthel tulip glass.

A - Dark brown, almost black. 2.5 finger thick light tan head that lasted for quite some time.

S - Very ripe banana and other fruit. Smells great.

T - Plums with a hint of smokiness. Mild bitterness.

M - Smooth with moderate carbonation.

O - Love this stuff. Wish I had gotten several bottles, but I really didn't know what I was buying. Got it before I had discovered BeerAdvocate.

Classic c- lassic style dark quad ale from Belgium, and this is a winner. Opened up with some good smoke and poured a good brown with a tan creamy head. I just went head to head with St. B 12 and I think this baby won on flavor as well. So I upped my taste results to a 5!!!!

Strong complex aroma that waifs out of the glass that is rich heavy fruits, burnt caramels, and maybe a little oaky, earthiness.

Well, the taste is powerful. Rich real dark Belgian taste. Heavy sweetness creamy mixed with a high alcohol that kicks nice. Good tiny Belgian carbonation mixed with a little bit of bitter for a dark rich nice sweet glow on the tongue. Brown sugar tastes.

This beer deserves respect. I suggest you drink it while watching an excellent French or Belgium (Jupiler League) soccer match. Quality fast moving soccer that involves athleticism, deep forward passes, and goals. Pairs well with the music of Milo Fine "Ananke."
