Been meaning to try this for close to 4 years now (no pun intended). This is a really spectacular beer. Dark fruits abound. A great yeasty quality that doesn't appear often in american versions of the style. Beautiful.

Tasting glass on tap at the brewery.

Appearance: Pours a hazy ruby brown with a big cream-colored head. Lots of lacing.

Aroma: Smells of apricot, some grapefruit, a little caramel, and booze.

Taste: Lots of complex flavors competing here. Apricot and grapefruit, as in the nose, and also some biscuit. Slightly buttery. Definitely booze burn.

Mouthfeel: Pretty easy drinker despite the high ABV. Medium bodied.

Overall: Very tasty quad. Worth seeking out. Allagash is so good at these Belgian styles.
