4.09/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Has a dark copper color with a cloudy sediment. 1 finger head that remained to the end.

S - In the nose there is plum and cherry apparent mixed with the scent of the alcohol

T - This beer has a sweet barley-winesque flavor that is fruit forward with a very modest finish.

M - moderate to low carbonation, smooth

O - I found this beer enjoyable. While the alcohol is apparent in the nose I did not find it overwhelming in the flavor. The finish was the highlight of this beer for me because it leaves your palate with only a lingering flavor. This made me want more.

On tap at Sessions in Greensboro.Poured into a tulip glass a deep amber color with a fluffy tightly formed one finger off white head that lasted for quite awhile.Raisin and plum notes in the nose along with lighter yeasty spice and brown sugar.Dark fruit dominates the palate with some medicinal notes,the alcohol is heavy and pretty sweet.It's a nice sipper but the yeast and alcohol can be a bit much....for me.

In draft at the source. Poured into Malhuer chalice/tulip. Creamy off-white head, high retention. Dark, dark ruby, almost black. Aroma, dates, light roast, almost chocolate sweetness. Taste creamy, coffee, chocolate malty sweet, creamy goodness. Excellent. Totally delicious.

Nice subdued nose of malt and chocolate of some depth. Some sulphury sourness in the glass as well. Dark fluffy magnolia head starts easy and massive but reduces greatly over a fairly prolonged period in time. Deep dark brown to look at with an Indian reddish hue.
Fairly carbonic start, fizzy, surprising and ends very dark, dry and earthy but that acidic body really dominates the palate throughout. There's some yeastiness to to the taste in there as well.
For many my 'score' will probably be seen as a bit harsh but for me this just lacks charisma and emotional intensity.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

33 cl bottel poured into my lost abbey stemware glass

A: Pours a nice deep hue of brown with a full fluffy two finger head that dosn't stay very long The retention is good with a solid cap hanging around for the duration. Some spotty lace noted.

S: Nice blast of malty goodness. Big on caramel malt with some strong underlying grains. Brown sugar and dark fruits come next in a bold way. Very nice.

T: Similar to aroma. Big sweet malty goodness right from the start. The dark fruits come out along with some yeast. In the finish there is a touch of spice.

M: Medium in body with very lively carbonation.

D: It's an wonderful after dinner or late evening sipper

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750 mL corked and caged bottle. label is confusing, it says "Best Before End: LB10/11".

poured into goblet, extremely dark brown, muddy. tan creamy head, that fades down to a thin collar. aroma is very nice as it warms, bold raisins, spicey, a little booze.

taste is not as boozey as the smell, even though it's 12% abv. notes of caramel, raisins, biscuity malt. some brown sugar, but not overly sweet. complex, but not overpowering. nice flavors.
medium body, higher carbonation. it could be smoother.

overall - a very solid Quad. Just not quite as good as the top class, like St. Bernardus 12 or Rochefort 10. not as smooth and easy drinkin as those.
