2 year old bottle in a Teku

L: Very dark with nice dark ruby when held to the light, minimal beige head
S: Figs, sweet fruit, the promise of high ABV
T: Plums, raisins, malt, low bitterness
M: Playful on the tongue with a good bit of heat, creamy but a tad thin
O: Very good quad, but prefer the Donker

Had this bottled with a steamed mussel dinner at Bardot's in Las Vegas. I would love to match this beer with a good pork roast or veal marsala. High ABV, but still sippable But the "Al" is there and could sneak up on you if you are not careful. Its got that quad taste/smell/feel of dried fruits and toasted bread. Good complexity. I had my bottle served chilled to start with and it seemed a little restrained; tasting like a boozy cola. As the serving temperature rose, so did the complexity of the flavors. Hidden away on the bottle was a small little note that the recommended serving temp. was 46 degrees. I would concur. Do not serve this one too cold. My bottle was labeled as vintage 2013. If you are a fan of the Belgium quad style, you'll enjoy this one but will not put it at the very top of your list. Solid, but not exceptional.

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.
