On tap in a snifter

A : very dark chocolate brown color with 100% opacity. No head but that may be from the tap.

S : plum, fig, raisin, sweet cocoa nibs, and a yeast zing at the nose.

T : rich, dark fig. Mixed with chocolate covered plums. It's particularly decadent and antiquated, super fine with yeast zing and baked dark pumpernickel. Lovely flavor. The end is with black globe grape and a hint of black licorice.

M : medium bodied, semi-creamy, ends semi dry with a bright pop from carbonation.

O : fantastic beer. I'd have it again, the word "dark ambrosia" comes to mind. Very nice.

Aroma has strong notes of Apple purée & plum. Slick mouthfeel, a tad oily,with lots of apple cider notes (just a bit of vinegar tart) accented by dark fruit, mostly the plum with some raisin / dark fruit as well. Good, complex flavor & pretty smooth, an underrated Quad.

Nice but very different. Think flat, sweet liquor.

There's a lot going on in this one... it's almost overwhelming. Yet somehow the various flavor elements "play nicely" instead of fighting each other.

Much too sweet.
One of the worst beers I have ever drunk in my entire life.
Beer is not Coca Cola.

Bottle code is 01-2019 KACU0115A. Label says it's 2012; 330ml bottle served in a tulip at the Restaurant Taverne An Den Linden in some town in Belgium.

Pours dark, translucent, slight head, little carbonation. Smells likea dubbel. Tart, dark fruit. Dates and plums.

Taste is like a dubbel. More like the smell -- plus overripe cherry.

Mouthfeel is smooth. Light. Overall, very nice.

Love it, only "issue" is the narrow foam, which quickly disappears.

I'll probably buy the special glass this beer deserves:) And see what it does to the foam.

Really nice quad. I've had 2 bottles of this. It's ages amazingly gracefully. Very nice offering from a great brewery.
