look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Served in its glassware. Russet color with deep ruby tones. Small head cap.

Dark plum, phenols, nutty yeast, roast, dry raisin, and red grape. Delicate aromas with hidden complexity.

Dark fruity yeast esters with notes of candied plum, red grape, hard tack, and nuttiness. Note of artificial grape and raspberry jam are interesting. Great medicinal character. Some vinous notes. On the sweet side, for a quad.

Restrained booziness, wooly carbonation, full body.

Fantastic quad on-draft.

Pours a very dark orange/copper. Not as bubbly as some other Belgians.
Smell is lots of dark fruit, spices.
Taste is lots of the same, exactly what you want/expect from a big fruity quadruple, but the added thing here is a spicy finish that is noticeably different from, say Rochefort or St Bernardus.
Mouthfeel: the 12% alcohol is pretty well hidden, but this is not a beer you would ever want to gulp. Its meant to be sipped.
Overall, this quad is a little different and a lot underrated. Wonderful big beer.

Bottle pour at The Belgians Are Coming held in Old Town Newhall in Newhall, CA.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, dark fruit, brown sugar, toffee, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with dark fruit and toffee flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty but fairly boozy and strong.
