4.07/5  rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Served in a tulip glass right from the bottle.

Appearance: Dark amber with an off-white head, rose initially to about two finger's length. Drops after two or three sips and settles with no lacing whatsoever.

Smell: Yeast scent, leaves quick after first sniff.

Taste: Nice sweet complex raisins. Hint of yeast and light cinnamon. Sour feel, like a bit of rye with of vanilla.

Mouth: Sticky feel, not super sticky just enough for t to linger around.

Overall: Very good brew, very easy to find and price is very friendly. To pass this up would be a mistake. Salud!

Pours a dark brown and nearly black. Thick, nearly opaque and with a creamy foamy lace which dissipates into thin lace.
At first, I detected a faint citrus/orange peel like aroma which pleasantly surprised me because I felt like it was unusual for the style. There is also a chocolate aroma and some liqueur.
Malty sweet but with spices and a kiss of hops for balance. Chocolaty sweet finish. Medium bodied and a little lighter for a quad. The carbonation, as is the case with many belgian beers, was active and a bit tight at first. However, I feel like this did not settle properly thus detracting slightly from the score.
Nevertheless, this is an excellent beer.

330 ml bottle Beergium - Pours dark brown with a light tanned large head. Medium carbonation. Nice lacing. Smell - sweet fruity, yeasty notes. Taste - sweet malty to the fore with a dry bitter finish with a small warm alcoholic feel. Nice winter warmer.

I recently had the Malheur 10 and wanted to see what this one was about. Exceptional carbonation and admirable color. The ABV is well hidden! An underrated but still short of world-class Quad.

Dark brown/mahogany. Heavy sticky fruit and booze smell. Slightly sticky mouthfeel, less intense than the smell. Sticky fruits, a bit of booze, dark malts.

Had mine after cellaring about 3 years.

A very well-made, very true to style quad. I cannot complain in any way about this.

Rich, velvety mouthfeel with low carbonations, as expected from the style and from the length of aging. Texture was just a touch grainy from floaties.

Delicious plum, prune, and raisin flavors came from the port wine colored beer - nothing unexpected in this department. Maybe just a touch rough or herbal on the finish that wasn't optimal.

A great beer that just didn't have anything that takes it to the next level.
