look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Look: Brown with a tough of ready, slightly hazy, quick fading head that does linger, but extremely thin, not much lacing
Smell: Dark fruit, Belgian yeast esters, sweet, alcohol, slight spice
Taste: Dark fruit, grape toffee, and sweet, but not cloying. A touch of spice and alcohol
Feel: Prickly carbonation, moderate thickness
Overall: A great example of a quad. A world class brew, meant to be drank with great food. Happy to be able to enjoy this one periodically. If only it were a little bit cheaper...
