This stuff will get you really drunk quickly and doesn't taste bad. It's a bit too foamy when poured into a glass for my tastes but that's not a big deal. I like pairing it with a lamb burger and fries.

I got this from Belgian Happiness in August 2015.

Dark amber colored, clear beer with an off-white head.

Nose: Plum, raisin, dried fruit, spice, caramel malt, pear, yeast and bread.
Taste: Sweet malt, spice, warmth fro the alcohol, dark fruit, cherry, banana and raisin.
Body: Medium to full body. Medium, crisp carbonation. Sweet, round and soft finish.

Damned good!

I was expecting a bit more. Orange amber in color with silky beige head. Aroma of citrus, spice and malt. Taste is subdued, but pleasant and no alcohol burn. However, I was hoping for something a little darker and heavier. Not bad, but short of expectations.

330ml bottle. Best before 2017-05-21. Poured into tulip.

A: Cropper. A little hazy. Poured with a lot of foam with moderate retention.
S: Intense malty aroma. Sweet notes.
T: Malty. Moderate sweetness. The finish is drying out.
M: full bodied. Creamy.
O: Not a quadruple I expected, the flavors are too simple.

Exceptional carbonation with decent lacing. Certainly a solid example of the style but not what I would consider in the class of others such as ABT 12, WESTY.

A dark amber pour with lots of rocky foam, four fingers worth from a gentle pour into my beer goblet. Didn't last long, fading to a thin cap after just a few minutes, but it left lots of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass as I drank it down. The smell is of lightly roasted malt, caramel and burnt brown sugar and the flavor followed suit with some dark, stone fruit added in for good measure, along with a noticeable alcohol flavor. Warming alcohol, light carbonation buzz, and a medium full body. I want more of this excellent example of a true Belgian Quad.

Bought from Bev Mart $4.19. Hazy brown color, thick head, heavy mouthfeel, strong sweet taste, definitely a beer to sip like a wine especially with the high alcohol.
