4.12/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: thick head dissipates rather quick hazey translucent amber in color

Aroma: sweet pears and heavy sugary malt character

Flavor: There's that Belgian yeast smooth sugar and caramel candy

Mouthfeel: creamy low carbonation and chewy

This is good but would probably earn a better score from me in the winter

Nice cloudy mahogany color. Aroma and flavor are pretty much identical... raisins, figs, dates, caramel malts, and spicy. Alcohol is basically undetectable. Delicious, warming and fairly complex, this beer is a real treat. Pick up a few if you can find it.

This reminded me a lot of the 't Smisje Kerst Quadrupel.

A - filled up a Chimay glass nicely with a dark body and a thick, creamy head. Head lasted fairly long with a little fizziness.

S - light smell of vanilla and cola, though not very strong

T - raisiny and milky-sweet coffee, a tad of chocolate and lasting, complex finish, not bitter at all

M- some fizz, some oily smoothness

D- Very smooth, easy to drink, lots of flavor. Good example of a quadrupel, although not as distinct as a Rochefort 10 or a Westvleteren 12.
