Batch 4 from 08/2013 served in a tulip glass

Apearance: clear, dark red with a nice fluffy head

Nose: rum, oaky, raisins, prunes, alcohol, slight yeast nose

Taste: rum and oak heavy, boozy, dark fruits, smooth alcohol presence and not harsh. Very classic quad with a warming alcohol finish. Kind of a numbing quality on the gums.

Overall: classic quad, even with 2 years of age it is still boozy and laced with alcohols. It could stand a few more years in the cellar.

Bought from Beers of the World, Mar 15. Served in a goblet at cellar temp.

Look: Darkish amber, thin offwhite head

Smell: faint Belgian yeast with alcohol esters floating above

Taste: Brown sugar, warming alcohol

Feel: decent, good

Overall: a barrel aged version of their Dancin' Monks Dubbel. Better than that but that isn't saying much

650 ml corked caged bottle dated 8/13/2014. Sampled on November 9, 2014. Served about 60 degrees.

Pours reddish amber with tan head and lacing.

Aroma of dark sweet malts and black licorice.

Medium but smooth body.

The taste has a touch of Belgian malts, black licorice and booze. Big bitter finish.
