Poured into a Pint Defiance tulip. The body is a hazy dark brown, with a thin tan head. Aromas consist of apple, caramel, brown sugar, fig, raisin, baking spices, baked dark bread, and milk chocolate. Flavors are the same. The ABV is only mildly apparent, which is a surprise. The feel is heavy bodied with medium carbonation.

Pours a lovely deep red/chestnut with medium foaming caramel head.
The head starts to diminish immediately leaving a thin film, which is a shame and reason for the sub 4 score.

Aroma is a little on the vinegary side, yes the malty aroma is there but overpowered by that beefy alcohol content (11.5%)

Taste is top quality, a real grower. Ripe spiced fruit and packed with those malty notes. Add a twist of caramel and ripened banana and you're there.

Feel is a touch artificial, but harsh it certainly is not.

Overall, an 'almost' exceptional beer in my opinion, just needed a touch more lacing and a little less effervescence.

An excellent beer well worth a try, but the St Bernardus 12 remains a tad better.

This strong ale is edging on quad territory. Comes on strong, with minor alcohol burn. Pours dark brown with thin head, aroma is sweet, wood, dried fruit. Taste is initially sweet, then spicy. Easy to drink, but sip slowly to enjoy all the flavors.

Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma is quite sugary with sweet fruity notes like dark berries. Taste has brown sugar, dark dried fruits, some yeasty flavors, earthy and slightly roasty bitterness on the finish. Body is on the light side, medium plus carbonation. Overall it's a quite good quad with a complex taste.

From the bottle into correct glassware at Cambrinus in Bruges.

Pours a dark reddish brown, with some fine foam.

Smell is a bit sweet, with figs, plums, raisins mingling with some treacle and a hint of red berrries.

Taste is semi sweet an vinous, with raisins, currants and brown sugar sharing the stage. Finish is lingering with some oaky notes.

Mouthfeel is medium-thick and nice and chewy.

Overall, a terrific quad with ome nice fruity notes offsetting the sweetness.

poured from an 11.2 oz. bottle into a big Duvel glass. I love this beer

L: 3" of beer and 1" of head that reduces to a thin soapy foam within 2 minutes. color of an opaque Tootsie Roll

S: sweet dark chocolate & thick date paste. vanilla extract, alcohol to balance. the Belgian candi sugar smells like hard crack caramel

T: raisinets. chocolate. dates and figs. vanilla. just enough hop flavor to suggest bitter almond. dark fruit acidity

F: feels correct, just like a quad w/ mildly buzzy carbonation to keep it from squatting on the palate and make you forget 12%!!!!! oops

O: drunk. luxurious. guess it works right

Nice quadruple. Not the biggest complexity but good balance with prunes, toffee, pear, spices, low bitterness and almost no booziness even with the really high ABV. A savory drink

A delicious dark ale, with a pronounced musty aroma and a lot of esters that make you want more and more of it. Fairly sweet, with notes of molasses and burnt sugar. Full bodied and with moderate smooth carbonation. A really nice treat of a beer.

Big pour produce a big fluffy head which hung around, left lots of lacing and a film.

Nose is yeasty and a bit funky with some fruit - unusual.

Palate is a it warm - some fruit and a bit funky.

Overall a bit of a miss this one - worth trying if you like the style as I do - otherwise avoid.
