This is exactly what a Quad should taste like. It's near perfection in that category. I just happen to like Tripels more.

A - Finger of off-white, dense head. Hazy, light red-brown body. Head dissipates to a thin film, but doesn't completely disappear.

S - Yeast. Bready malt. Leather. Dried, dark fruit. Brown sugar.

T - Brown sugar, molasses, dried dark fruit. Touch of roasted malt and wood.

M - More carbonation than I expected, but quickly dries out with a mild coffee-like bitterness.

O - I'm new to the style, but I really enjoyed this and intend to try more quads. Pretty easy to drink for such a high abv. brew.
